Synopses & Reviews
For 27 years, H. Scott Fogler's Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering has been the #1 selling book for undergraduate and graduate level courses in chemical reaction engineering, with over 80% market share. Now, Fogler has created a Fifth Edition of this internationally respected text. Fogler has revised and updated the graduate-level chapters of Elements, and combined that with revised and organized chapters of his undergraduate-level Essentials of Chemical Reaction Engineering, successfully integrating text, visuals, and computer simulations to help both undergraduate and graduate students master all of the field's fundamentals. The result is a refined, more up-to-date 17-chapter book that contains new examples, problems, and video instruction. Fogler's diverse problems reinforce his material, enabling students to explore key issues, seek optimum solutions, and practice critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills. To satisfy new ABET requirements, Fogler includes expanded coverage of crucial safety topics. Readers will find expanded coverage of bioreactions and industrial chemistry, introduced with real reactors and reactions, a broad range of applications, and the newest digital techniques. An interactive CD-ROM and mirror website serve as both an enrichment resource and a professional reference shelf. This is the first edition of Fogler's text that will also be available in eBook versions.
The Definitive, Fully Updated Guide to Solving Real-World Chemical Reaction Engineering Problems
For decades, H. Scott Fogler s Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering
has been the world s dominant text for courses in chemical reaction engineering. Now, Fogler has created a new, completely updated fifth edition of his internationally respected book. The result is a refined book that contains new examples and problems, as well as an updated companion Web site. More than ever, Fogler has successfully integrated text, visuals, and computer simulations to help both undergraduate and graduate students master all of the field s fundamentals. As always, he links theory to practice through many relevant examples, ranging from standard isothermal and non-isothermal reactor design to applications, such as solar energy, blood clotting, and drug delivery, and computer chip manufacturing.
To promote the transfer of key skills to real-life settings, Fogler presents the following three styles of problems:
About the Web Site
- Straightforward problems that reinforce the principles of chemical reaction engineering
- Living Example Problems (LEPs) that allow students to rapidly explore the issues and look for optimal solutions
- Open-ended problems that encourage students to practice creative problem-solving skills
The companion Web site offers extensive enrichment opportunities and additional content, including
- Complete PowerPoint slides for lecture notes for chemical reaction engineering classes.
- Links to additional software, including POLYMATH, Matlab, Wolfram Mathematica, AspenTech, and COMSOL .
- Interactive learning resources linked to each chapter, including Learning Objectives, Summary Notes, Web Modules, Interactive Computer Games, Solved Problems, FAQs, additional homework problems, and links to Learncheme.
- Living Example Problems that provide more than eighty interactive simulations, allowing students to explore the examples and ask what-if questions. The LEPs are unique to this book.
- Professional Reference Shelf, which includes advanced content on reactors, weighted least squares, experimental planning, laboratory reactors, pharmacokinetics, wire gauze reactors, trickle bed reactors, fluidized bed reactors, CVD boat reactors, detailed explanations of key derivations, and more.
- Problem-solving strategies and insights on creative and critical thinking.
