Chemical Reaction Engineering – Octave Levenspiel – 3rd Edition

Description

Chemical Reaction , Third Edition helps learn how to answer reactor questions reliably and effectively. To accomplish this, the text emphasizes qualitative arguments, simple , , and frequent comparison of capabilities of major reactor types. This approach helps students develop a strong intuitive sense for good design.

Chemical reaction engineering is concerned with the exploitation of chemical on a commercial scale. It’s goal is the successful design and operation of chemical reactors. This text emphasizes qualitative arguments, simple design methods, graphical procedures, and frequent comparison of capabilities of the major reactor types. Simple ideas are treated first, and are then extended to the more .
