Powtech '83: Particle Technology focuses on the techniques and processes involved in the handling and processing of powders and other related products. The book presents studies that show the composition, characteristics, value, and strength of materials when subjected to different conditions in different environments. Divided into five parts with 32 chapters, the book features the work of contributors who have conducted research on the composition and chemical processes involved in particle technology. The pieces that are presented feature experiments and tests conducted on different materials, such as coal and liquids. These experiments are supported by lengthy discussions coupled with numerical representation to validate the claims of authors in their respective concerns. Although the authors have their own topics to cover, they will manage to capture the interest of physicists, chemists, and mechanical and civil engineers who are interested in particle technology. Taking into consideration the value of information presented in the book, these professionals will find the book a reliable source of data in their profession and in their studies.
