Mixing in Continuous Flow Systems E. B. Nanman and B. A. Buffham This groundbreaking introductory study lets engineers and research scientists design and analyze complex flow and reaction systems, even with limited data. Specifically dealing with mixing effects important to the design of chemical reactors, it uses systems models typical of any large chemical plant or oil refinery to examine temporal mixing, or the mixing among particles or any conserved entities that have remained in the system for different lengths of time. In addition, it views mixing from a spatial perspective, treating it as a process that brings system components into closer physical proximity. Plus it reports the first steps toward unification of the temporal and spatial viewpoints of mixing. 1983 (0 471-86191-X) 271 pp. Structural Analysis and Design of Process Equipment Maan H. Jawad and James R. Farr Here is the most practical, up-to-date source available for information on the analysis and design of process equipment. It provides practicing engineers with clear guidance to the latest ASME Boiler and Vessel Code and offers advanced engineering students a concise introduction to the basic equations and rules used in the design of process vessels and components. Topics covered include a general introduction to the tools of the trade.an outline of the basic theory of plates and shells.a detailed analysis and design of components, defining procedures for designing vessel supports and illustrating the evaluation of stress due to wind and earthquake loads.and the design and analysis of specialized equipment, including tubesheet design in heat transfer equipment. 1984 (0 471-09207-X) 704 pp. Gas Treating with Chemical Solvents G. Astarita, D. W. Savage, and A. Bisio This rigorous blend of theory and practice provides a rational analysis of gas treating processes in which liquids are used to absorb acid gases from gaseous streams. It emphasizes those aspects unique to the use of chemically reactive solvents--liquids containing components that react chemically with the acid gases after they dissolve in the liquid phase And it also treats those aspects common to purely physical acid gas absorption processes. An ideal text for graduate students with a working knowledge of physical chemistry, classical gas absorption and mass transfer processes, it constitutes an exhaustive treatment of four important areas: industrial gas treating, theory, applications, and industrial problems. 1983 (0 471-05768-1) 493 pp.
