edition.

This textbook is designed for courses in mass transfer operations, a staple in any chemical engineering curriculum. The second edition is updated to discuss many developing topics in mass transfer operations not discussed in the first, including membrane separations, chromatography and other adsorptive processes, ion exchange, electrophoresis, and multistage batch distillation, differential transport equations, and boundary-layers. This new edition will also incorporate mass transfer phenomena in biological systems, making it applicable in biochemical engineering as well as chemical engineering.

# Transport Phenomena

Transport Phenomena has been revised to include deeper and more extensive coverage of heat transfer, enlarged discussion of dimensional analysis, a new chapter on flow of polymers, systematic discussions of convective momentum,and energy.

Topics also include mass transport, momentum transport and energy transport, which are presented at three different scales: molecular, microscopic and macroscopic. If this is your first look at Transport Phenomena you’ll quickly learn that its balanced introduction to the subject of transport phenomena is the foundation of its long-standing success.
