The Definitive, Fully-Updated Guide to Solving Real-World Chemical Reaction Engineering ProblemsThis book combines authoritative coverage of the principles of chemical reaction engineering with an unsurpassed focus on critical thinking and creative problem solving. Clear, concise, and superbly organized, it integrates text, visuals, and computer simulations to help readers solve even the most challenging problems through reasoning, rather than by memorizing equations. H. Scott Fogler has thoroughly updated his classic text to provide even more coverage of industrial chemistry with real reactors and reactions, and an even broader range of applications. This edition's examples range far and wide, from smog to digestion, antifreeze to cobra bites, and computer chip manufacturing to chemical plant safety. Coverage includes Fundamental concepts: mole balances, conversion, reactor sizing, rate laws, and stoichiometryCollection and analysis of rate data: equal-area differentiation, polynomial fitting, numerical difference formulas, regression, half lives, and more Reaction mechanisms, pathways, bioreactions, and bioreactorsIsothermal and nonisothermal reactor design, including steady- and unsteady-state nonisothermal reactorsCatalysis and catalytic reactors: selectivity, yield, and multiple reaction algorithmsExternal diffusion effects on heterogeneous reactions: Fick's Law, mass transfer coefficients, region mass transfer limitation, and the shrinking core modelDiffusion and reaction in porous catalysts, including Thiele modulesDistributions of residence times for chemical reactorsModels for nonideal reactors: tanks-in-series, dispersion one parameter models, and Peclet numbersSample problems drawn from the California Civil and Professional Engineers-Chemical Engineering Examination (PECEE)Extensive reference content: numerical techniques, ideal gas constant/conversion factors, thermodynamic relationships

Review: Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering

User Review  - Mike - Goodreads

In my college days (circa 1993) most textbooks in college (and especially those in chemical engineering) were in the bad to terrible range. This book along with Felder and Rousseau text were the ... Read full review
