Introductory Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 2/e - J. Richard Elliott & Carl T. Lira
This is the eBook version of the printed book.
A deep understanding of thermodynamics is essential to success in a wide range of chemical and biochemical engineering applications. In this book, two leading experts and long-time instructors thoroughly explain the subject, taking the molecular perspective that working engineers require (and competitive books often avoid). This new and renamed Second Edition contains extensive new coverage of today's fast-growing biochemical engineering applications, notably biomass conversion to fuels and chemicals. It also presents many new MATLAB examples and tools to complement its previous usage of Excel and other software. New and updated coverage includes: Integrated discussions of biological thermodynamics throughout Clear learning objectives and outcomes for each chapter, provided as a web supplement More examples focusing on the First and Second Laws of thermodynamics and fluid phase equilibria in mixtures A new overview of mixture modeling concepts Reorganized, enhanced coverage of van der Waals and local composition models A brand-new chapter on molecular simulations Expanded coverage of stability theory Updated online supplements and new online teaching tools, including ConceptTesting
