Description

This book is designed for core courses in chemical reactor engineering, chemical reactor design and kinetics in upper level undergraduate chemical engineering. It focuses explicitly on developing ideas necessary to design a chemical reactor for any application, including chemical production, materials processing and environmental modeling. It covers the fundamentals of describing and designing chemical processes, considering reactor type, product selectivity and yield, heat management, and mass transfer. The text is part of "Topics in Chemical Engineering" series.show more
