Overview

Lately, there has been a renewed push to minimize the waste of materials and energy that accompany the production and processing of various materials. This third edition of this reference emphasizes the fundamental principles of the conservation of mass and energy, and their consequences as they relate to materials and energy. New to this edition are numerous worked examples, illustrating conventional and novel problem-solving techniques in applications such as semiconductor processing, environmental engineering, the production and processing of advanced and exotic materials for aerospace, electronic, and structural applications.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Authored by Arthur E. Morris, Gordon Geiger, and H. Alan Fine, this completely revised third edition provides a clear, comprehensive treatment of the use of mass balance and stoichiometry techniques, and the application of the First Law of Thermodynamics, to the production and processing of mineral, metallic, and ceramic materials. The text comes with a CD containing an extensive thermodynamic database, specially-developed software to carry out more complex calculations, and a bonus set of flowsheeting notes by Dr. Eric Grimsey of Curtin University, Australia."
