The Engineering of Chemical Reactions
Publication Date 1 Oct 2004
OverviewThe Engineering of Chemical Reactions, 2e, focuses on the analysis of chemical reactors while simultaneously providing a description of industrial chemical processes and the strategies by which they operate. This concise and up-to-date text is ideal for upper-level undergraduate courses in chemical reactor engineering and kinetics. In addition to the analysis of simple chemical reactors, it considers more complex situations such as multistage reactors and reactorseparation systems. Energy management and the role of mass transfer in chemical reactors are also integrated into the text. Numerical methods are used throughout to consider more complex problems. Worked examples are given throughout the text, and over 300 homework problems are included. Both the examples and problems cover real-world chemistry and kinetics. The Engineering of Chemical Reactions, 2e, covers the fundamentals of describing and designing chemical processes, considering reactor type, product selectivity and yield, heat management, and mass transfer, and it also focuses explicitly on developing ideas necessary to design a chemical reactor for any application, including chemical production, materials processing and environmental modeling. The text is part of the Topics in Chemical Engineering series and is suitable for upper-level undergraduate core courses in Chemical Reactor Engineering, Chemical Reactor Design, Kinetics and/or Chemical Reaction Engineering. Text is short and focuses explicitly on the development of the ideas necessary to design a chemical reactor for any application Numerical methods are used throughout the text to consider more complex problems Worked examples are given throughout the text, and over 300 homework problems are included Corrections to previous edition are incorporated New features include: 2 new chapters (chapter 12 Biological Reactions and chapter 13 Environmental Reactions) New problems added at the end of most chapters New sections added in chapters 4 and 9 New figures in chapter 12 All equations are numbered throughout the book Increased focus on Biological and Environmental applications of chemical engineering Teaches students how to understand, design, and manage chemical reactions to obtain a desired result or product Ancillary material: Solutions Manual (019516153X)
