Description

Simultaneous Mass Transfer and Chemical Reactions in Engineering Science: Solution Methods and Chemical Engineering Applications illustrates how mathematical analyses, statistics, numerical analysis and computer programming can summarize simultaneous mass transfer and chemical reactions in engineering science for use in solving problems in quantitative Chemical and Biochemical Engineering design and analysis. The book provides statistical methodologies and R recipes for advective and diffusive problems in various geometrical configurations. The R-package ReacTran is used to showcase transport models in aquatic systems (rivers, lakes, oceans), porous media (floc aggregates, sediments, ...) and even idealized organisms (spherical cells, cylindrical worms, ...).

Key Features

  • Presents the basic science of diffusional process and mass transfer, along with simultaneous biochemical and chemical reactions
  • Provides a current working knowledge of simultaneous mass transfer and reactions
  • Describes useful mathematical models on the quantitative assessment of simultaneous mass transfer and reactions
  • Focuses on the analysis of systems of simultaneous mass transfer and reactions, discussing the existence and uniqueness of solutions to well-known theoretical models

Readership

Research professionals in Chemical, Nuclear, Process, and Biomedical Engineering; (Post)-graduate students and faculty members in Chemical, Nuclear and Process Engineering and Biomolecular and Biomedical Engineering
