Learn Chemical Reaction Engineering through Reasoning, Not Memorization
Essentials of Chemical Reaction Engineering is a complete yet concise, modern introduction to chemical reaction engineering for undergraduate students. While the classic Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering, Fourth Edition, is still available, H. Scott Fogler distilled that larger text into this volume of essential topics for undergraduate students.
Fogler’s unique way of presenting the material helps students gain a deep, intuitive understanding of the field’s essentials through reasoning, not memorization. He especially focuses on important new energy and safety issues, ranging from solar and biomass applications to the avoidance of runaway reactions.
Thoroughly classroom tested, this text reflects feedback from hundreds of students at the University of Michigan and other leading universities. It also provides new resources to help students discover how reactors behave in diverse situations—including many realistic, interactive simulations on DVD-ROM.
- Crucial safety topics, including ammonium nitrate CSTR explosions, nitroaniline and T2 Laboratories batch reactor runaways, and SAChE/CCPS resources
- Greater emphasis on safety: following the recommendations of the Chemical Safety Board (CSB) 2 case studies from plant explosions and two homework problems which discuss another explosion.
- Solar energy conversions: chemical, thermal, and catalytic water spilling
- Algae production for biomass
- Mole balances: batch, continuous-flow, and industrial reactors
- Conversion and reactor sizing: design equations, reactors in series, and more
- Rate laws and stoichiometry
- Isothermal reactor design: conversion and molar flow rates
- Collection and analysis of rate data
- Multiple reactions: parallel, series, and complex reactions; membrane reactors; and more
- Reaction mechanisms, pathways, bioreactions, and bioreactors
- Catalysis and catalytic reactors
- Nonisothermal reactor design: steady-state energy balance and adiabatic PFR applications
- Steady-state nonisothermal reactor design: flow reactors with heat exchange
About the DVD-ROM
The DVD contains six additional, graduate-level chapters covering catalyst decay, external diffusion effects on heterogeneous reactions, diffusion and reaction, distribution of residence times for reactors, models for non-ideal reactors, and radial and axial temperature variations in tubular reactions. Extensive additional DVD resources include:
- Summary notes, additional examples, derivations, audio commentary, and self-tests
- Web modules applying key concepts to standard and nonstandard problems, such as the use of wetlands to degrade toxic chemicals
- Interactive computer games that review and apply important chapter concepts
- Innovative “Living Example” and Green Engineering home problems
- A link to the Fogler Polymath site and the polymath code to solve the examples from the book are included on the DVD
- Included are the codes necessary to solve the COMSOL Multiphysics™ examples from the text.
- A complete, new AspenTech tutorial, and four complete example problems
- FAQs, answering CRE questions commonly asked by undergraduates
- Visual Encyclopedia of Equipment, Reactor Lab, and other intuitive tools
- Links to humorous YouTube CRE videos created by students at the University of Alabama
Additional updates, applications, and information will be provided on the web.
