    Description

    Including two must-have titles, this ultimate bundle provides chemical engineers with tools to solve day-to-day problems quickly and accurately. Rules of Thumb for Chemical Engineers, 4e is THE standard handbook for chemical and process engineers. With hundreds of techniques, shortcuts, and calculations to solve day-to-day design, operations, and equipment problems it will save you time and effort. Essential Matlab for Engineers and Scientists, 3e is THE guide to MATLAB as a problem solving tool. Introducing the fundamentals of MATLAB and its potential, it will help you avoid common mistakes and pitfalls, and to master the power of MATLAB. Bundled together for the first time, this is the ideal way to get up to speed with problem solving tools for future and practicing chemical engineers.

    Daniel Valentine

    Daniel Valentine is a Professor of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at Clarkson University and Affiliate Director of the Clarkson Space Grant Program which is part of the New York NASA Space Grant Consortium. This program has provided support for undergraduate research appointments, and for graduate students. He is currently investigating the nonlinear dynamics of two-dimensional, Navier-Stokes flows as part of his work on the development of computational methods to solve fluid dynamics problems. He is also working on the flow-structure interaction of long-span bridges, unsteady hydrodynamics and offshore renewable energy. Other activities include investigations to develop a computational method to predict the effect of a marine propulsor on wave resistance of ships, to examine the effect of density stratification on rotating flows, to develop computational tools to predict the time-averaged properties of high-Reynolds number flows among other fluid mechanics problems.
