Today, chemical engineering students need a thorough understanding of momentum, heat, mass transfer, and separation processes. Transport Processes and Separation Process Principles, Fifth Edition offers a unified and up-to-date treatment of all these topics. Thoroughly updated to reflect the field's latest methods and software technologies, it covers both fundamental principles and practical applications. Coverage includes: Essential engineering principles and units Principles of momentum transfer, overall balances, and application Heat transfer, steady-state conduction, unsteady-state heat transfer, convection, heat exchangers, and radiation heat transfer Mass transfer, including steady-state, unsteady-state, and convective Absorption, stripping, and humidification processes Filtration and membrane separation processes (Liquid Liquid and Solid Liquid Phase) Gaseous membrane systems, distillation, and Liquid Liquid extraction Adsorption, ion exchange, and chromatography Crystallization, size reduction, settling, centrifugation, leaching, evaporation, and drying This new Fifth Edition has been expanded to cover many additional topics, reorganized for easier use in diverse classroom settings, and updated with tutorials and homework problems for leading software, including Aspen/CHEMCAD, MATLAB, COMSOL, and Microsoft Excel.
