Transport Phenomena for Chemical Reactor Design

The first complete, combined study of these two vital disciplines

Laurence Belfiore’s unique treatment meshes two mainstream subject areas in chemical engineering: transport phenomena and chemical reactor design. Expressly intended as an extension of Bird, Stewart, and Lightfoot’s classic Transport Phenomena, and Froment and Bischoff’s Chemical Reactor Analysis and Design, Second Edition, Belfiore’s unprecedented text explores the synthesis of these two disciplines in a manner the upper undergraduate or graduate reader can readily grasp.

Transport Phenomena for Chemical Reactor Design approaches the design of chemical reactors from microscopic heat and mass transfer principles. It includes simultaneous consideration of kinetics and heat transfer, both critical to the performance of real chemical reactors. Complementary topics in transport phenomena and thermodynamics that provide support for chemical reactor analysis are covered, including:

  • Fluid dynamics in the creeping and potential flow regimes around solid spheres and gas bubbles
  • The corresponding mass transfer problems that employ velocity profiles, derived in the book’s fluid dynamics chapter, to calculate interphase heat and mass transfer coefficients
  • Heat capacities of ideal gases via statistical thermodynamics to calculate Prandtl numbers
  • Thermodynamic stability criteria for homogeneous mixtures that reveal that binary molecular diffusion coefficients must be positive

In addition to its comprehensive treatment, the text also contains 484 problems and ninety-six detailed solutions to assist in the exploration of the subject. Graduate and advanced undergraduate chemical engineering students, professors, and researchers will appreciate the vision, innovation, and practical application of Laurence Belfiore’s Transport Phenomena for Chemical Reactor Design.

The Pillars of Computation Theory: State, Encoding, Nondeterminism (Universitext)

The abstract branch of theoretical computer science known as Computation Theory typically appears in undergraduate academic curricula in a form that obscures both the mathematical concepts that are central to the various components of the theory and the relevance of the theory to the typical student. This regrettable situation is due largely...

Neuroanatomical Tract-Tracing: Molecules, Neurons, and Systems
Having been available for 70 years, it seems reasonable to ask what transmission electron microscopy (TEM) can add to the investigation of the nervous system in the new millennium. Today, the basic synaptic organization of most brain regions is known, as is the morphological detail of most neurons and support cells. Chapters in...
