About the Authors
  • The term "transport phenomena" describes the fundamental processes of momentum, energy, and mass transfer. The author provides a thorough discussion of transport phenomena, laying the foundation for understanding a wide variety of operations used by chemical engineers. The book is arranged in three parallel parts covering the major topics of momentum, energy, and mass transfer. Each part begins with the theory, followed by illustrations of the way the theory can be used to obtain fairly complete solutions, and concludes with the four most common types of averaging used to obtain approximate solutions. A broad range of technologically important examples, as well as numerous exercises, are provided throughout the text. Based on the author's extensive teaching experience, a suggested lecture outline is also included. This book is intended for first-year graduate engineering students; it will be an equally useful reference for researchers in this field. Solutions manual available.

    • Meets a widely expressed need for a graduate-level text on transport phenomena
    • Written by a leading expert on the subject
    • Includes many and varied real-world examples and exercises

    "Prof. Slattery has made a great service to the heat transfer community and must be sincerely congratulated." MATH, vol. 963

    " immensely enjoyable tome to browse through many times...this book makes a significant and substantial advance in the BSL unifying theme of transport phenomena. The underlying idea...of this advance is ambitious and perhaps even brilliant..." Applied Mechanics Reviews
