Chemically Reacting Flow: Theory, Modeling, and Simulation, 2nd Ed.

Robert J. Kee, Michael E. Coltrin, Peter Glarborg, and Huayang Zhu, AIChE-Wiley, Hoboken, NJ, $195, 792 pages, Sept. 2017, ISBN: 978-1-119-18487-4


This book combines fundamental concepts in fluid mechanics and physical chemistry to help professionals in the chemical processing industries (CPI) develop the analytical and simulation skills needed to solve engineering problems. The authors clearly explain theoretical and computational building blocks that can be used for related or new applications. The first half of the book is devoted to multicomponent fluid-mechanical fundamentals, and the second half includes the necessary fundamental background needed to couple reaction chemistry into complex reacting-flow models.

The second edition substantially revises and reorganizes the topics covered in the first edition. The book features new chapters on reactive porous-media flow, electrochemistry, chemical thermodynamics, transport properties, and solving differential equations in MATLAB.
