Transport Phenomena for Chemical Reactor Design (Hardback)
We will contact you when this item is next available to order.
Laurence Belfiore's unique treatment meshes two mainstream subject areas in chemical engineering: transport phenomena and chemical reactor design. Expressly intended as an extension of Bird, Stewart, and Lightfoot's classic Transport Phenomena, and Froment and Bischoff's Chemical Reactor Analysis and Design, Second Edition, Belfiore's unprecedented text explores the synthesis of these two disciplines in a manner the upper undergraduate or graduate reader can readily grasp. Transport Phenomena for Chemical Reactor Design approaches the design of chemical reactors from microscopic heat and mass transfer principles. It includes simultaneous consideration of kinetics and heat transfer, both critical to the performance of real chemical reactors. Complementary topics in transport phenomena and thermodynamics that provide support for chemical reactor analysis are covered, including: -Fluid dynamics in the creeping and potential flow regimes around solid spheres and gas bubbles -The corresponding mass transfer problems that employ velocity profiles, derived in the book's fluid dynamics chapter, to calculate interphase heat and mass transfer coefficients -Heat capacities of ideal gases via statistical thermodynamics to calculate Prandtl numbers -Thermodynamic stability criteria for homogeneous mixtures that reveal that binary molecular diffusion coefficients must be positive In addition to its comprehensive treatment, the text also contains 484 problems and ninety-six detailed solutions to assist in the exploration of the subject. Graduate and advanced undergraduate chemical engineering students, professors, and researchers will appreciate the vision, innovation, and practical application of Laurence Belfiore's Transport Phenomena for Chemical Reactor Design.

"In addition to its comprehensive treatment, the text also contains 484 problems and 96 detailed solutions to assist in the exploration of the subject." (Chemical Engineering Progress, March 2004) "...an amazing book; almost every topic that arises in the design of a chemical reactor is discussed... Highly recommended." (Choice, Vol. 41, No. 3, November 2003)
