The best just got better! The second edition continues to maintain its aim of presenting balanced treatment of transport phenomena and equal emphasis on mass transport, momentum transport and energy transport. It has however, been revised to include more extensive reference to applications of material covered and the addition of appendices on applied mathematics topics, the Boltzmann equation, and a summary of the basic equations in several coordinate systems. Are you looking for more than just a textbook? Transport Phenomena, 2/e offers literature citations throughout so you and your students know where to find additional material. A benefit your students will find useful once they are part of the workforce. Expand your topical coverage Transport Phenomena, 2/e has! The revision of this classic title has expanded coverage of: Transport properties in two-phase systems Boundary-layer theory Heat and mass transfer coefficients Dimensional analysis and scaling
