Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For a Full Course on Transport Phenomena A companion text entitled An Introduction to Fluid Dynamics, written by the same author, is also available. Together, these two texts represent complete, consistent coverage of transport phenomena. Both texts:
  • Focus on the development of a mathematical model as a central part of the analysis and design of an engineering system or process
  • Teach students how to develop accurate mathematical representations of physical phenomena
  • Present many examples of experimental data against which the model can be compared
  • Expose students to the wide range of technologies which they may encounter in the future
  • Provide a wealth of real world applications drawn from the author’s years of experience as a consultant

Book News Annotation:

Text which is geared towards teaching students how to develop mathematical representations (models) of physical phenomena. Intended to expose students to a wide range of technologies, and assumes that the reader/student has been exposed to a basic course in ordinary differential equations. Sixteen chapters discuss diffusive, steady and quasi-steady, and unsteady (transient) mass transfer; diffusion with laminar convection; convective mass transfer coefficients; continuous gas/liquid contactors; membrane transfer and systems, and heat transfer. The text contains four appendices.

Synopsis:

This highly recommended book on transport phenomena shows readers how to develop mathematical representations (models) of physical phenomena. The key elements in model development involve assumptions about the physics, the application of basic physical principles, the exploration of the implications of the resulting model, and the evaluation of the degree to which the model mimics reality. This book also expose readers to the wide range of technologies where their skills may be applied.
