Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, and Mass Transfer Chemical Engineering Practice pdf.
Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, and Mass Transfer Chemical Engineering Practice.
The book is intended for use by students at undergraduate and graduate levels, faculty in Chemical Engineering Departments across the world, working and consulting engineers in areas such as petroleum refineries, petrochemical, gas processing, and fertilizer plants, design organizations, food and pharmaceutical processing, environmental engineering, and the like. The book is also useful to mechanical engineering students and faculty. The book is written with emphasis on practice with brief theoretical concepts in the form of Questions and Answers, bridging the two areas of theory and practice with respect to the core areas of chemical engineering.
The author considers that the question-answer approach adopted stimulates interest in the subject matter and focuses attention on specific topics in a better and concise manner than running matter given in normal text and reference books. The approach was used by the author in the classroom for several years, spanning a period of over four decades. Feedback from faculty, students, alumni, and practicing engineers in several institutions/organizations appreciated this approach when the author used this approach during continuing education and training courses, besides classroom instruction. This prompted the author to embark upon writing this book.
The book is an attempt to bridge the gap between theory and practice in a balanced manner so that it will be easy for students and academics to get a grasp of practice and industry personnel to understand theoretical concepts necessary to appreciate the genesis involved in the practice.
At the teaching level, the book is suitable for different courses involving fluid mechanics, heat transfer, mass transfer, and membrane technology as well as design courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels. The author considers it to be useful in design project work by students and others. It can be used as a textbook and/or a reference book.
In the market, there is no such book in these areas linking theory with broad practical aspects and to this effect, it is original in nature with almost no competitors on the subject. It avoids referring to several text and reference books, to get information on specific topics/content.
The vast literature available in the form of articles in chemical engineering magazines, monographs, and manufacturers literature has been used in its preparation along with the active interaction of the author with the practicing world over a period spanning nearly five decades. To summarize, features include emphasis on practical aspects in the learning process for students and faculty and ease and convenienceinthe use ofthetheoretical and practical aspects ofthe subjectinthe practice of professional engineers. Question–answer approach focuses on individual topics in a more effective way than the normally used running matter in textbooks. Adds to learning process, creating better interest among students, faculty, and others for whom time factor is important.
Involves the core areas of chemical engineering and fulfills the need for a single source, avoiding the requirement of using several books, articles, and other sources for the topics covered in the book.
The core areas of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, mass transfer, and membrane processes are covered in the book in a balanced way, avoiding making the book bulky and unwieldy in its use.
Most parts of the book are easily understandable by those who are not experts in the field. For example, it covers types on pumps, valves, process equipment, membranes, and areas of their use, their merits, and drawbacks and selection in a simple way No author of any book, other than those written as purely research publications or biographies, can claim the contents of their books as original contributions by them. To this extent, the author admits that the book is a collection and compilation of the material available in literature with the interpretations and comments by the author and acknowledges the individuals and groups of pioneers who contributed to the evolution of the subject matter over centuries. The author wishes to dedicate the book to all such pioneers who contributed to the evolution of chemical engineering as a profession.
