Transport Processes and Separation Process Principles – C. J. Geankopolis – 4th Edition


Appropriate for one-year phenomena (also called ) and separation course. First semester covers mechanics, heat and ; second semester covers principles (includes unit ). The title of this Fourth Edition has been changed from Transport and Unit Operations to Transport and Separation Process Principles (Includes Unit Operations).

This was done because the term Unit Operations has been largely superseded by the term Separation Processes which better reflects the present modern nomenclature being used. The main objectives and the format of the Fourth Edition remain the same. The sections on momentum have been greatly expanded, especially in the sections on fluidized beds, flow meters, mixing, and non-Newtonian fluids. Material has been added to the chapter on mass .

The chapters on absorption, distillation, and liquid-liquid extraction have also been enlarged. More new material has been added to the sections on ion exchange and crystallization. The chapter on membrane separation processes has been greatly expanded especially for gas-membrane theory.
