Enables chemical engineers to use mathematics to solve common
on-the-job problems

With its clear explanations, examples, and problem sets,
Applied Mathematics and Modeling for Chemical Engineers has
enabled thousands of chemical engineers to apply mathematical
principles to successfully solve practical problems. The book
introduces traditional techniques to solve ordinary differential
equations as well as analytical methods to deal with important
classes of finite-difference equations. It then explores techniques
for solving partial differential equations from classical methods
to finite-transforms, culminating with??numerical
methods??including orthogonal collocation.

This Second Edition demonstrates how classical
mathematics solves a broad range of new applications that have
arisen since the publication of the acclaimed first edition.
Readers will find new materials and problems dealing with such
topics as:

  • Brain implant drug delivery

  • Carbon dioxide storage

  • Chemical reactions in nanotubes

  • Dissolution of pills and pharmaceutical capsules

  • Honeycomb reactors used in catalytic converters

  • New models of physical phenomena such as bubble

Like the first edition, this Second Edition provides
plenty of worked examples that explain each step on the way to
finding a problem's solution. Homework problems at the end of each
chapter are designed to encourage readers to more deeply examine
the underlying logic of the mathematical techniques used to arrive
at the answers. Readers can refer to the references, also at the
end of each chapter, to explore individual topics in greater depth.
Finally, the text's appendices provide additional information on
numerical methods for solving algebraic equations as well as a
detailed explanation of numerical integration algorithms.

Applied Mathematics and Modeling for Chemical Engineers
is recommended for all students in chemical engineering as well as
professional chemical engineers who want to improve their ability
to use mathematics to solve common on-the-job problems.
