Learn and apply heat and mass transfer principles to real-world chemical engineering problems
This hands-on textbook provides a concept-based introduction to heat and mass transfer procedures and lays out the foundation to practical applications in a broad range of fields relevant to chemical and biochemical processing.
Written by a recognized academic and experienced author, Heat and Mass Transfer for Chemical Engineers: Principles and Applications contains comprehensive discussions on conductive and diffusive processes and the engineering correlations between momentum, heat, and mass transfer. Readers will get Mathematica workbooks that facilitate calculations and explore trends. The book refers extensively to Perry’s Chemical Engineers’ Handbook, Ninth Edition for data and correlations.
