Format: Hardcover
Writing science beautifully and simply is an art and is undoubtedly an extremely taxing task. But the authors, BSL, seem to have mastered this and the result is very much seen in this book, Transport Phenomena. The book encourages systematic development and most importantly, clarity of thought. These systematic techniques enable one to solve complex problems with a relative ease without compensating for the rigour involved! Fundamentally explicit, the book renews and stirs interest in modelling chemical engineering systems. A number of examples on momentum, heat and mass transfer have been explained. Combinations of the transport processes have also been dealt with. Difficult mathematical concepts of tensors, bessel functions, error functions etc are superbly explained. I sincerely hope that in further editions of the book, a lot more examples from interfacial transport processes and combined momentum-heat-mass transfer are included.

Absolutely the best book I've used in Chemical Engineering 7 May 1999
By Ethan Creech - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book progresses quite rapidly through the various topics; usually begining with a one dimentional analysis and then proceding to more general treatment. This more general treatment tends to consist of Tensor analysis which is explained to a working extent in an appendix. However, after these general equations have been derived they are only refefered to by there location out of a comprehensive chart. Furthermore, the student is trained to use intuition in their approach to problem solving.
In general the text is incredibly consistant and well written. The examples and problems grow from a relitively basic level to those that can only be solved with advanced engineering Mathematics. The progression builds on itself in a nice way.

World Traveler 7 Oct. 2000
By Andrew M. Ward - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the few MUST HAVE books for Chemical Engineers doing process engineering. When I travel (for work) I always take "Transport Phenomena" (aka BSL), The GPA Databook and "Rules of Thumb for Chemical Engineers". When all the simple solutions to a problem have been exhausted, I pull out BSL, find an end-chapter problem similar to my own and work from there.
A Practical Tip: The best thing to do with "Rules of Thumb for Chemical Engineers" is to carefuly remove the binding and put it into a 3-hole notebook (e.g., the GPA databook) and then file all the classic process design articles with the appropriate chapters.

A chemical engineering classic 28 Jan. 1998
By - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The most enduring text ever written for students of chemical engineering, BSL's "Transport Phenomena" leads the way with its study of momentum, energy, and mass transport. The structure and writing of the book make it unparalled in its usefulness to both beginning students of transport phenomena, and intermediate/advanced students looking for treatments of convective and turbulent transport, and mass transfer in reacting systems.

THE Book To Learn From 25 Mar. 2007
By John Graham - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Transport Phenomena colloquially known as BSL is the book to learn transport phenomena from if at the ugrad level. Although the binding might show the age of the book, the text is just as applicable today. And this is the copy to have, it's better than the 2nd edition copy due to the lack of changes that could confuse people going the first time through it.

It will never go out of style, and you'll even look smarter with it sitting on your shelf.

Unified and deep visulisation of transport phenomena. 21 Jun. 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The unified visulisation of those phenomena provide to Chemical engineers a very clear idea of the momentum and heat transport, but the basis of the chemical engineers study is the mass transfer and here we found a very good description, else more, Bird, introduce and gide us to solve this kind of problems.
Other very interesting side of this book is the tensorial approach that can be percived in his study.
For a best start in chemical engineering, this book provides what you need and what you wuill need.
