Fordecades, H. Scott Foglers Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering has been the worlds dominant chemical reaction engineering text. Usingsliders and interactive examples in Wolfram, Python, POLYMATH, and MATLAB,students can explore reactions and reactors by running realistic simulationexperiments.
Writing for todays students, Fogler provides instant access to information,avoids extraneous details, and presents novel problems linking theory topractice. Faculty can flexibly define their courses, drawing on updatedchapters, problems, and extensive Professional Reference Shelf web content atdiverse levels of difficulty.
The book thoroughly prepares undergraduates to apply chemical reaction kineticsand physics to the design of chemical reactors. And four advanced chaptersaddress graduate-level topics, including effectiveness factors. To support thefields growing emphasis on chemical reactor safety, each chapter now ends witha practical safety lesson.
• Updates throughout the book reflect current theory and practice and emphasize safety
• New discussions of molecular simulations and stochastic modeling
• Increased emphasis on alternative energy sources such as solar and biofuels
• Thorough reworking of three chapters on heat effects
• Full chapters on nonideal reactors, diffusion limitations, and residence time distribution
Appropriate for undergraduate courses on chemical reactionengineering, though four advanced chapters do address graduate-level topics.
