Book Description

Chemical Engineering Volume 2 covers the properties of particulate systems, including the character of individual particles and their behaviour in fluids. Sedimentation of particles, both singly and at high concentrations, flow in packed and fluidised beads and filtration are then examined.

The latter part of the book deals with separation processes, such as distillation and gas absorption, which illustrate applications of the fundamental principles of mass transfer introduced in Chemical Engineering Volume 1. In conclusion, several techniques of growing importance - adsorption, ion exchange, chromatographic and membrane separations, and process intensification - are described.

* A logical progression of chemical engineering concepts, volume 2 builds on fundamental principles contained in Chemical Engineering volume 1 and these volumes are fully cross-referenced
* Reflects the growth in complexity and stature of chemical engineering over the last few years
* Supported with further reading at the end of each chapter and graded problems at the end of the book

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 16 Jun. 2010
By Cat R VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
In my First Year of my undergraduate degree, I bought a lot of textbooks, but easily the ones I used the most (and continue to use!) were this, and Volume 1 of the same series. If you only have the money for one or two textbooks, GET THESE.

This volume focuses on particle technology and separation processes. Although not as fundamental as the subjects covered by Volume 1, they are still very useful when it comes to understanding of distillation, filtration, mixing, and so on. The writing is clear and easy to understand, and there are plenty of illustrations, graphs, and tables to aid in understanding. There are also problem sets, which can be used as a supplement to tutorials, coursework, and revision to ensure that understanding has been reached.

I've been graduated for a year and I still go back and refer to these books. If you have them, you won't need much else for your degree.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for the final year project 6 May 2015
By hak92
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very useful book for the course of the degree and the final year project. Good for designing distillation columns but volume 6 has more detail on the design and mechanical drawing, and the process and instrumentation used.

Format:Hardcover
The hallowed Coulson and Richardson really is THE key to unlocking the problems of chemical engineering. As a first year undergraduate, i found this book very useful in all aspects of my course from Process Analysis to Fluid Flow. You're tutors may recommend this book along with a score of others, but my advice is that if you buy only one book in your freshman year, make it this one.
Coulson and Richardson is not only an invaluable resource for chemical engineeres, it is also easy to use, unlike so many others. Information is clear and comprehensive and there are tutorial problems to guide you through the course.
So forget about Stroud and Perry's, Coulson and Richardson will be your best purchase throughout university- not only will it give you a solid basis in the fundamentals of chem eng. it will serve you all the way to masters level.
And once you've finished volume one- there are at least another five volumes that i know of to sink your teeth into!
Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for the design project 23 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is a great place to start when doing your final year design project. It summarises all the stuff you've learnt over the years, and gives you some pointers on the practical stuff you don't get taught. Its also very good at pointing you to other references that can help even more. Don't start your design project without one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chemical Engineering Volume 2 - 5 Stars 3 May 2011
By Kiko
Format:Paperback
I wish I had this book during my first year of the degree. I cannot begin to describe just how much it has helped me and how close to my syllabus it is. I would definitely recommend the first two books for any chemical engineer. Thank you.
