Mass and Heat Transfer: Analysis of Mass Contactors and Heat Exchangers (Cambridge Series in Chemical Engineering)


Mass and Heat Transfer: Analysis of Mass Contactors and Heat Exchangers (Cambridge Series in Chemical Engineering) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text allows instructors to teach a course on heat and mass transfer that will equip students with the pragmatic, applied skills required by the modern chemical industry. This new approach is a combined presentation of heat and mass transfer, maintaining mathematical rigor while keeping mathematical analysis to a minimum. This allows students to develop a strong conceptual understanding, and teaches them how to become proficient in engineering analysis of mass contactors and heat exchangers and the transport theory used as a basis for determining how the critical coefficients depend upon physical properties and fluid motions. Students will first study the engineering analysis and design of equipment important in experiments and for the processing of material at the commercial scale. The second part of the book presents the fundamentals of transport phenomena relevant to these applications. A complete teaching package includes a comprehensive instructor 's guide, exercises, design case studies, and project assignments.

Book News Annotation:

The authors (all professors of chemical engineering at the U. of Delaware) present a textbook on mass and heat transfer that is intended to teach students a methodology for developing model mathematical equations to describe mass and heat transfer based on the relationship between experimental data and the model, teach students to design and interpret laboratory experiments in mass and heat transfer using these model equations and to effectively translate this knowledge to the operation and design of mass and heat transfer equipment, and develop the students' molecular understanding of the mechanisms of mass and heat transfer in fluids and solids and application in the estimation and correlation of mass and heat transfer coefficients. Following an introduction to the material and method of approach, chapters are presented on chemical reactor analysis, heat exchanger analysis, mass contractor analysis, microscopic analysis of control volumes to estimate the heat transfer and mass transfer coefficients, methods for calculating the are of mass transfer in a variety of mass contacting equipment, and case studies of common mass contactors and heat exchangers. A basic college-level understanding of thermodynamics, calculus, and reaction kinetics is required. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
