Description

Analysis of Transport Phenomena is intended mainly as a text for graduate-level courses in transport phenomena for chemical engineers. Among the analytical methods discussed are scaling, similarity, perturbation, and finite Fourier transform techniques. The physical topics include conduction and diffusion in stationary media, fluid mechanics, forced- and free-convection heat and mass transfer, and multicomponent energy and mass transfer.show more
