Description

Fundamental Mass Transfer Concepts in Engineering Applications provides the basic principles of mass transfer to upper undergraduate and graduate students from different disciplines. This book outlines foundational material and equips students with sufficient mathematical skills to tackle various engineering problems with confidence. It covers mass transfer in both binary and multicomponent systems and integrates the use of Mathcad® for solving problems. This textbook is an ideal resource for a one-semester course.

Key Features

  • The concepts are explained with the utmost clarity in simple and elegant language
  • Presents theory followed by a variety of practical, fully-worked example problems
  • Includes a summary of the mathematics necessary for mass transfer calculations in an appendix
  • Provides ancillary Mathcad® subroutines
  • Includes end-of-chapter problems and a solutions manual for adopting instructors

About the Author

Professor Ismail Tosun received his BS and MS degrees from the Middle East Technical University (METU), and a PhD degree from the University of Akron, Ohio. After spending a year as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Akron and completing his military service in Ankara, he started his academic career as an assistant professor at the METU Chemical Engineering Department in 1981. He was promoted to Associate Professorship in 1984 and to full Professorship in 1989. As a Fulbright Scholar and a Visiting Professor, Prof. Tosun was in the United States from 1987 to 1989. From 1990 to 1993, he was the Assistant-Dean of the Graduate School at METU. He then acted as the Dean of Graduate School until 1997. In January of 1997, Prof. Tosun was appointed to the Council of Higher Education (YOK), which acts as the National Board of Trustees. After completing his term of four years as the Vice-President, he returned to his academic career at METU in January of 2001. His research and teaching interests are mathematical modeling, solid-liquid separation processes, transport phenomena, and thermodynamics. He is the author or coauthor of over sixty publications.
