Fluidization Engineering, Second Edition, expands on its original scope to encompass these new areas and introduces reactor models specifically for these contacting regimes. Completely revised and updated, it is essentially a new book. Its aim is to distill from the thousands of studies those particular developments that are pertinent for the engineer concerned with predictive methods, for the designer, and for the user and potential user of fluidized beds.

Key Features

  • Covers the recent advances in the field of fluidization.
  • Presents the studies of developments necessary to the engineers, designers, and users of fluidized beds.
