This multi-disciplinary guide takes the logical step of incorporating the three core areas of chemical engineering-- fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and mass transfer--into one comprehensive volume. A much-needed counterbalance to other texts in the field this book steers its attention towards practice rather than placing emphasis purely on theoretical concepts. Rich in content, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer and Mass Transfer is wide in scope, yet structured in a way that bypasses excess details to offer solid analysis on all facets of chemical engineering. Students pursuing this field and practitioners looking to fortify their knowledge are sure to find what they are looking for in this handy, all-in-one guide.
