Research and Markets: Chemical Reactor Design, Optimization, and Scaleup, 2nd Edition Covers the Fundamentals and Principles of Chemical Reactors

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on November 26th, 2008

This book provides tools, information, and hands-on expertise to make important engineering tasks and decisions in chemical reactor design. Written for both graduate students and practicing professionals, this book revises and updates the first editions emphasized topics of scaleup, optimization, numerical methods, and biochemical and polymer reactions. In addition to the improved treatment of these subjects, the 2nd edition significantly adds coverage of nanotechnology (including micron-scale reactions) and the method of false transients a numerical solution technique supplementing methods from the prior edition. Based on the authors in-class experience with students and industrial short courses, the book includes worked mathematical problems to illustrate the subjects discussed.

The classic reference, now expanded and updated Chemical Reactor Design, Optimization, and Scaleup is the authoritative sourcebook on chemical reactors. This new Second Edition consolidates the latest information on current optimization and scaleup methodologies, numerical methods, and biochemical and polymer reactions. It provides the comprehensive tools and information to help readers design and specify chemical reactors confidently, with state-of-the-art skills.
