Mixing: Theory and Practice, Volume II provides a complete and practical summary of mixing or the movement of fluids in conduits and vessels of laboratory and industrial processing equipment. The book is a compilation of papers that focuses on the theory and practice of mixing. Chapters in this volume are devoted to the discussion of mass transfer in two-phase systems; the effects of mixing on chemical reactions; the mixing of highly viscous materials; the suspension of particles in liquids; the mixing of dry solid particles; and the mechanical design of impeller-type mixers. Chemical engineers and chemists will find the book a good reference material.
