Transport Phenomena – R. Bird, W. Stewart, E. Lightfoot – 2nd Edition


The evolution of transport has been so rapid and extensive that it is impossible to comprehend it completely in one . Although many representative examples have been included, the primary interest has been the basic aspects of this field. In this edition has included enough material to cover two modalities of courses: one introductory and one advanced. The elementary course, in turn, can be divided into a course on of momentum and another on and transfer of matter, which provides more opportunities to demonstrate the usefulness of this material in practical applications.

Identification of some sections as optional and others as advanced may be useful for and teachers. Throughout the text priority is given to citations and bibliographical references, in order to locate transport phenomena in their own historical context and to guide the reader who wants to delve into the study of fundamentals and applications.
