The third lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Hindered systems is mainly about sedimentation of concentrated suspensions. The way concentrated dispersions behave is also covered: buoyancy correction and viscosity for Newtonian suspensions. Industrial thickener design is included, based on incompressible settling behaviour.
This material is suitable for HND, BSc, BEng, MEng, and MSc levels.
