Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering: International Edition
Edition 4 ed
Publication Date 1 Jan 2006
OverviewThe Definitive, Fully-Updated Guide to Solving Real-World Chemical Reaction Engineering Problems. This book combines authoritative coverage of the principles of chemical reaction engineering with an unsurpassed focus on critical thinking and creative problem solving. Clear, concise, and superbly organized, it integrates text, visuals, and computer simulations to help readers solve even the most challenging problems through reasoning, rather than by memorizing equations. H. Scott Fogler has thoroughly updated his classic text to provide even more coverage of industrial chemistry with real reactors and reactions, and an even broader range of applications. This edition's examples range far and wide, from smog to digestion, antifreeze to cobra bites, and computer chip manufacturing to chemical plant safety. Coverage includes Fundamental concepts: mole balances, conversion, reactor sizing, rate laws, and stoichiometry. Collection and analysis of rate data: equal-area differentiation, polynomial fitting, numerical difference formulas, regression, half lives, and more Reaction mechanisms, pathways, bioreactions, and bioreactors. Isothermal and nonisothermal reactor design, including steady- and unsteady-state nonisothermal reactors. Catalysis and catalytic reactors: selectivity, yield, and multiple reaction algorithms. External diffusion effects on heterogeneous reactions: Fick's Law, mass transfer coefficients, region mass transfer limitation, and the shrinking core model. Diffusion and reaction in porous catalysts, including Thiele modules. Distributions of residence times for chemical reactors. Models for nonideal reactors: tanks-in-series, dispersion one parameter models, and Peclet numbers Sample problems drawn from the California Civil and Professional Engineers-Chemical Engineering Examination (PECEE)Extensive reference content: numerical techniques, ideal gas constant/conversion factors, thermodynamic relationships, slope measurement, molecular dynamics, nomenclature, and more. The CD-ROM contains more than fifty interactive computer simulation tutorials, plus summary notes, additional examples, expanded derivations, mathematics software, and advanced content - ranging from collision and transition state theory to aerosol reactors, DFT, and runaway reactions. A companion Web site provides updates to both the book and CD.
