Preface

The objective of this edition remains the same as that of the first two editions, namely, to present the fundamental (macroscopic) conservation equations that govern the behavior of fluids and to apply these to a wide variety of practical situations of interest to the chemical engineer. Where purely theoretical expressions are not completely adequate to describe the actual fluid system of interest, empirical information is utilized and generalized by principles of similitude where possible.

The general approach to problem solving espoused here is represented by the “baby versus the bathwater” philosophy illustrated in the book. That is, it is believed that the most useful approach to engineering problem solving is to concentrate on those ...
