Overview

Handbook on Material and Energy Balance Calculations in Metallurgical Processes / Edition 1

A revised edition of the original text, this handbook reviews the basic principles of physical chemistry, linear algebra, and statistics which are necessary to determine material and energy balances. Chapter topics include: Dimensions, Units, and Conversion Factors; Stoichiometry; Sampling and Measurements; Material Balances; Thermochemistry; and Energy Balances. In addition, three appendices covering basic properties of matrices; graphic and tabular enthalpy data for 65 elements (their oxides, halides, carbides, and nitrides); and a bibliography of related reference material.

This is a valuable textbook not just for students, but also for practicing engineers looking for a refresher text in this important area.
