This software is the companion to Wilson Chin's book, Computational Rheology for Pipeline and Annular Flow. The book and CD focus on numerical methods for non-ideal fluids, a low-maintenance and low-hassle way to ”unclog” pipelines and resume ideal flow. This results in increased uptime and increased profits. This CD-rom offers the end-user the full program, previously available only through Dr. Chin's personal consulting practice.These techniques have never before been offered to a wide range of end-users. Dr. Chin's work is cutting-edge and has only been used so far by his clients, such high-profile companies as the US Department of Energy, Halliburton, Brown and Root, and others. Having achieved a high degree of success with these companies by using his methods, Dr. Chin now offers this product not only to all oil service companies, but also to companies in other industries, such as manufacturing (extrusions of metal, plastics, wire coatings), food processing (flows of peanut butter, mayonnaise, ketchup), chemical process engineering (pipeline, plant, and facilities design), bioengineering (blood flow in arteries, veins, muscles), and so on.
