"Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 7/e", presents comprehensive coverage of the subject of thermodynamics from a chemical engineering viewpoint. This text provides a thorough exposition of the principles of thermodynamics and details their application to chemical processes. The chapters are written in a clear, logically organized manner, and contain an abundance of realistic problems, examples, and illustrations to help students understand complex concepts. New ideas, terms, and symbols constantly challenge the readers to think and encourage them to apply this fundamental body of knowledge to the solution of practical problems. The comprehensive nature of this book makes it a useful reference both in graduate courses and for professional practice. The seventh edition continues to be an excellent tool for teaching the subject of chemical engineering thermodynamics to undergraduate students.

A More Accessible Approach to Thermodynamics In this third edition, you'll find a modern approach to applied thermodynamics. The material is presented in sufficient detail to provide a solid understanding of the principles of thermodynamics and its classical applications. Also included are the applications of chemical engineering thermodynamics to issues such as the distribution of chemicals in the environment, safety, polymers, and solid-state-processing. To make thermodynamics more accessible, several helpful features are included. Important concepts are emphasized in marginal notes throughout each chapter. Illustrations have also been added to demonstrate the use of these concepts and to provide a better understanding of the material. Boxes are used to highlight equations so that students can easily identify the end results of analyses. You can also visit the text's web site to download additional problem sets, computer programs to solve thermodynamic and phase behavior problems, and Mathcad worksheets used for problem solving.

For undergraduate courses in Applied Thermodynamics. Written in a style and at a level that is accessible to undergraduates, this introduction to applied thermodynamics covers the first and second law for process applications, molecular concepts, equations of state, activity models, and reaction equilibria--all in a tightly integrated, pedagogical progression of topics. It addresses the on-going evolution in applied thermodynamics and computer technology, and integrates several widely-accessible computational tools to allow exploration of model behavior-- e.g., programs for HP and TI calculators, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, and PC's. Includes background and comparison on many of the popular thermodynamic models.

The aim of this contemporary textbook is to show students that thermodynamics is a useful tool, not just a series of theoretical exercises. Written in a conversational style, the text presents the second law in a totally new manner--there is no reliance on statistical arguments; instead it is developed as a natural consequence of physical experience. Students are not required to write complex, iterative computer programs to solve phase equilibrium problems--techniques are presented which enable use of readily available math packages. The book also explores electrochemical systems such as batteries and fuel cells. Included in the extensive amount of examples are those which demonstrate the use of thermodynamics in practical design situations.

  • Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers
  • Cross-Flow Heat Exchangers
  • Plate Heat Exchangers
  • Regenerators
  • Multiphase Systems.
This particular Seminar No. 18 on the Design and Operation of Heat Exchangers was the first one on this topic and was held at the Universit{t der Bundeswehr Hamburg (University of the Federal Armed Forces Hamburg) fromFebruary 27 to March 1 in 1991. The seminar was an international event and was attended by more than 60 scientist not only from countries of the European Community such as Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, and the Netherlands but also from other countries such as Canada, China, India, Israel, Romania, Soviet Union, Sweden and the United States of America. In this proceedings volume thirty-seven conference papers are published dealing with various aspects of the design and operation of heat exchangers. The first four papers are of general interest and not restricted to special flow arrange- ments or geometries. The next six contributions refer to shell and tube heat exchangers. In the following chapter 10 papers are represented which deal with cross-flow heat ex- changers. Another group of six refers to plate heat exchan- gers. The next two papers deal with heat storage in regene- rators and in the soil. The last chapter contains nine pa- pers on multiphase heat transfer invarious applications such as power plant condensers, heat pipe and direct contact heat exchangers. Thus, a great variety of theory and practi- ce is offered in this volume and thanks are due to all con- tributors.

Provided here is a revised edition of this well-received thermodynamics text, retaining the thorough coverage and organization that made the first edition so popular - now incorporating industrially relevant microcomputer programs, with which readers can perform sophisticated thermodynamic calculations, including calculations of the type they will encounter in industry. It provides a unified treatment of phase equilibria. The emphasis is on analysis and prediction of liquid-liquid and vapour-liquid equilibria, solubility of gases and solids in liquids, solubility of liquids and solids in gases and supercritical fluids, freezing point depressions and osmotic equilibria, as well as traditional vapour-liquid and chemical reaction equilibria. This edition contains many new illustrations and exercises.
