Multicomponent Mass Transfer - Wiley Series in Chemical Engineering
Multicomponent Mass Transfer. Selected type: Hardcover. Added to Your Shopping Cart. Out of stock. This is a dummy description. Addresses the use of rigorous multicomponent mass transfer models for the simulation and design of process equipment. Deals with the basic equations of diffusion in multicomponent systems. Describes various models and estimations of rates of mass and energy transfer.
Covers applications of multicomponent mass transfer models to process design. Includes appendices providing necessary mathematical background. We are thinking, in particular, of the materials in Section 2. A special feature of this book is the large number of numerical examples that have beenworked out in detail.
With very few exceptions these examples have been based on actualphysicochemical data and many have direct relevance in equipment design. The workedexamples can be used by the students for self-study and also to help digest the theoreticalmaterial.
To gain a more complete understanding of the models and procedures discussed it isvery important for students to undertake homework assignments. We strongly encouragestudents to solve at least some of the exercises by hand, although we recognize that acomputer is essential for any serious work in multicomponent mass transfer. We have foundequation solving packages to be useful for solving most of the simpler mass transferproblems.
For some problems these packages are not yet sufficiently powerful and it isnecessary to write special purpose software e. Our research and teaching efforts in multicomponent mass transfer have been stronglyinfluenced by two people. The late Professor George Standart of the University ofManchester who impressed upon us the importance of rigor and elegance.
Professor HansWesselingh of the University of Groningen motivated us to present the material in a formmore easily understandable to the beginner in this area. It is left to our readers to judgehow well we have succeeded in achieving both rigor and simplicity. Multicomponent mass transfer calculations are sufficiently demanding that one reallyrequires computer software if one is to make more than one such calculation. The examplesin this book were solved with a variety of software packages.
- Adapting Cognitive Therapy for Depression: Managing Complexity and Comorbidity.
- Hospital Neurology Book.
- Fixing Patriarchy: Feminism and Mid-Victorian Male Novelists!
Almost all of the computa-tional examples were solved first using software that we created specifically for this purpose. A library of Fortran 77 routines for performing multicomponent mass transfer calculationsis available from R. These routines can be made to work with any number ofcomponents and are easily incorporated into other programs. We have checked all of ouroriginal calculations by repeating the examples using software that has been designed formathematical work.
We have used several such packages in the course of our work. Withthe exception of the design examples in Chapters 14 and 15, all of the examples have beensolved using Mathcad for DOS Version 2. A disk containing our Mathcadfiles is provided with this book.
