Overview

Analysis of Transport Phenomena, Second Edition, provides a unified treatment of momentum, heat, and mass transfer, emphasizing the concepts and analytical techniques that apply to these transport processes.

The second edition has been revised to reinforce the progression from simple to complex topics and to better introduce the applied mathematics that is needed both to understand classical results and to model novel systems. A common set of formulation, simplification, and solution methods is applied first to heat or mass transfer in stationary media and then to fluid mechanics, convective heat or mass transfer, and systems involving various kinds of coupled fluxes.

FEATURES:

* Explains classical methods and results, preparing students for engineering practice and more advanced study or research
* Covers everything from heat and mass transfer in stationary media to fluid mechanics, free convection, and turbulence
* Improved organization, including the establishment of a more integrative approach
* Emphasizes concepts and analytical techniques that apply to all transport processes
* Mathematical techniques are introduced more gradually to provide students with a better foundation for more complicated topics discussed in later chapters

NEW TO THIS EDITION:

* Expanded coverage of several topics, including: order-of-magnitude estimation and scaling analysis in model simplification; solution methods for differential equations; simultaneous heat and mass transfer; and electrokinetic phenomena
* 30% more problems and worked examples, ranging from traditional chemical engineering topics in reaction engineering, separations, and heat transfer to applications in bioengineering, chemical kinetics, combustion, electrochemistry, materials processing, and membrane science
* New Chapter 15, "Transport in Electrolyte Solutions," provides expanded coverage of ion transport in liquids
* New Appendix B, "Ordinary Differential Equations and Special Functions," provides a concise review that makes the mathematics more self-contained
* New Instructor's Resource CD-ROM, available to adopters of the second edition, includes all of the figures and all of the solutions to the end-of-chapter exercises from the text
