Summary

The Complete, Unified, Up-to-Date Guide to Transport and Separation–Fully Updated for Today’s Methods and Software Tools

 

Transport Processes and Separation Process Principles, Fifth Edition, offers a unified and up-to-date treatment of momentum, heat, and mass transfer and separations processes. This edition–reorganized and modularized for better readability and to align with modern chemical engineering curricula–covers both fundamental principles and practical applications, and is a key resource for chemical engineering students and professionals alike.

 

This edition provides

  • New chapter objectives and summaries throughout
  • Better linkages between coverage of heat and mass transfer
  • More coverage of heat exchanger design
  • New problems based on emerging topics such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, and green engineering
  • New instructor resources: additional homework problems, exam questions, problem-solving videos, computational projects, and more

Part 1 thoroughly covers the fundamental principles of transport phenomena, organized into three sections: fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and mass transfer.

 

Part 2 focuses on key separation processes, including absorption, stripping, humidification, filtration, membrane separation, gaseous membranes, distillation, liquid—liquid extraction, adsorption, ion exchange, crystallization and particle-size reduction, settling, sedimentation, centrifugation, leaching, evaporation, and drying.

 

The authors conclude with convenient appendices on the properties of water, compounds, foods, biological materials, pipes, tubes, and screens.


The companion website (trine.edu/transport5ed/) contains additional homework problems that incorporate today’s leading software, including Aspen/CHEMCAD, MATLAB, COMSOL, and Microsoft Excel.

Author Biography

A. Allen Hersel is currently the associate dean of engineering at Trine University in Angola, Indiana. He is also an associate professor in the department of chemical engineering, where he has taught transport phenomena and separations for the last 12 years. His research is in the area of bioseparations and engineering education. Before entering academia, he worked for Koch Industries and Kellogg Brown & Root. He holds a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Yale University.

 

Daniel H. Lepek is a professor in the department of chemical engineering at The Cooper Union. His research interests include particle technology, fluidization and multiphase flow, pharmaceutical engineering, modeling of transport and biotransport phenomena, and engineering education. He is an active member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE), and the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE). He received a bachelor of engineering degree in chemical engineering from The Cooper Union and received his Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).
