CBE 320 September 20, 2010 Transport Phenomena Problem Session III Part A: Shell Momentum Balances 1. Simple Shear between Parallel Plates An incompressible, Newtonian fluid (constant ρ , μ ) is being sheared between two plates as illustrated in the figure below. The bottom plate is translating to the right with speed V , and the top plate is fixed. The plate width into the page is W . It is reasonable to assume that the only nonzero component of the
