A 'must-have' title for chem engg modelling enthusiasts!, 29 Aug 2001
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.
