The Fourth edition of Transport Phenomena Fundamentals continues with its streamlined approach to the subject of transport phenomena, based on a unified treatment of heat, mass, and momentum transport using a balance equation approach. The new edition includes more worked examples within each chapter and adds confidence building problems at the end of each chapter. Some solutions will be included in an appendix for students to check their comprehension of key concepts. A companion website will include author videos and COMSOL®, Maple®, and MATLAB® exercises. This edition also incorporates a wider range of problems to expand the utility of the text beyond chemical engineering.
