More About This Textbook


Scaling analysis facilitates assessing the viability of a process or technology without the need for prior bench- or pilot-scale data. It also provides a template for the design of experiments used to explore a new process or to validate a mathematical model. The first comprehensive book to focus on systematic scaling analysis while spanning various disciplines and applications, Scaling Analysis in Modeling Transport and Reaction Processes: Provides an overview of the systematic approach to scaling analysis, including the mathematical basis, Includes detailed chapters that cover specific applications in fluid dynamics, heat transfer, mass transfer, mass transfer with chemical reaction, and process design, Addresses scaling analysis across scientific disciplines and enhances communication across different research areas of applied science, including biology, chemistry, and physics, Has sixty-two detailed examples that illustrate the scaling method in various applications, as well as chapter-end problems (165 total) that can be used for independent study or as a class assignment.

Invaluable for researchers, scientists, and engineers involved in developing and solving models and in designing experiments, this reference is also a great textbook for courses in chemical or mechanical engineering, heat and mass transfer, transport phenomena, mathematical modeling, unit operations, and fluid dynamics.
