The Complete, Unified, Up-to-Date Guide to Transport and SeparationFully Updated for Todays Methods and Software Tools
Transport Processes and Separation Process Principles, Fifth Edition, offers a unified and up-to-date treatment of momentum, heat, mass transfer processes, and separation processes. Fully updated for the fields latest methods and software technologies, this revised edition covers both fundamental principles and practical applications, and will be a key resource for chemical engineering students and professionals alike.
The fifth edition adds tutorials and homework problems for todays leading software, including Aspen/CHEMCAD, MATLAB, COMSOL, and Microsoft Excel. It has also been reorganized and modularized for better readability and alignment to modern course curricula.
- Improvements in this edition include
- More coverage of heat exchanger design
- Better linkages between coverage of heat and mass
- New coverage of green/sustainability topics
- New chapter objectives and summaries throughout
- New instructor resources: additional homework problems, test banks, problem-solving videos, and more
Part 1 thoroughly covers the fundamental principles of transport phenomena, organized into three sections: fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and mass transfer.
Part 2 focuses on key separation processes, including absorption, stripping, humidification, filtration, membrane separation, gaseous membranes, distillation, liquidliquid extraction, adsorption, ion exchange, crystallization and particle-size reduction, settling, sedimentation, centrifugation, leaching, evaporation, and drying.This title concludes with convenient appendixes on the properties of water, compounds, foods, biological materials, pipes, tubes, and screens.
