Chemical Engineering Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Scale-Up in Chemical Engineering
Second Edition
by Marko Zlokarnik

Scale-Up in Chemical Engineering details the theoretical principles, introducing the subject for readers without a profound prior knowledge of mathematics.

Features:

  • Discusses the fundamentals of dimensional analysis, the treatment of temperature-dependent and rheological material values and scale-up where model systems or not available or only partly similar
  • Includes real-world examples, while 25 exercises plus solutions new to this edition practice and monitor learning.
  • Presents the individual basic operations and covers the fields of mechanical, thermal, and chemical process engineering with respect to dimensional analysis and scale-up
  • Includes dimensional analysis of pelleting processes, and a historical overview of dimensional analysis and modeling
