Transport phenomena.

Author(s) : BEEK W. J., MUTTZALL K. M. K., HEUVEN J. W. van

Type of monograph: Book


This revised edition of the book focuses strongly on concepts and incorporates much fundamental knowledge. Based on material used in advanced courses at the University of Delft in The Netherlands, it includes revisions of the original text and new applications providing a thoroughly updated read for those studying in the field. Each chapter ends with a number of problems to solve. Extract of contents: introduction to physical transport phenomena ; flow phenomena (laminar flow; turbulent flow; flow with negligible energy dissipation; flow around obstacles; flow through beds of particles; stirring, mixing and residence time distribution); heat transport (stationary/non-stationary heat conduction; forced convection in pipes; heat exchangers; forced convection around obstacles; natural convection; condensation and boiling; stirred vessels; radiation); mass transport (stationary diffusion and mass transfer; non-stationary diffusion; mass transfer with forced convection; mass exchangers; mass transfer with chemical reaction; combined heat and mass transport).
