Transport Phenomena for Chemical and Biochemical Reaction Engineering provides a unique approach to reactor design that meshes two mainstream subject areas in chemical engineering: transport phenomena and chemical reactor design. Containing numerous worked out solutions, the new, larger format edition adds seven new chapters, including topics on tissue regeneration in porous biomaterials and coupled heat and mass transfer in catalytic pellets.
This practical book gives the young professional all the information needed to know how to get started in the space business. It takes the reader step by step through processes for systems engineering and acquisition, design and development, cost analysis, and programme planning and analysis. The reader will find the systems engineering and design process that applies to all space transportation systems, then the overall system architecture considerations that also apply to all space transportation systems. There is also detailed coverage of space launch vehicles by class, including the current space shuttle, other manned reusable systems, expendable systems, and future systems. A companion CD-ROM contains oversize figures and the Operations Simulation and Analysis Modelling Systems software.
Outbreaks of cryptosporidiosis throughout the world, especially the massive outbreak in Milwakee in 1993 drew public attention to the quality of drinking water supplies and to the efficiency of water treatment methods. Cryptosporidiosis is a severe gastrointestinal disease caused by the transmissive form of Cryptosporidium parvum protozoan and its oocysts. Digestion of as few as 30 oocysts may be fatal to infants, elderly and immunocompromized persons. C. parvum oocysts are ubiquitous in untreated water and extremely resistant to harsh environmental conditions including standard water treatment procedures. We have developed an integrated modeling strategy to quantify the risk of surface drinking water contamination by water borne pathogens, in particular the oocysts of C. parvum, from agricultural non-point pollution sources. This project is comprised of both a modeling and an experimental effort. The main experimental effort focused on the measurement of C. parvum oocysts partitioning in the soil/water systems with the objective of parameterizing the transport model. The pathogen transport model is based on the behavior of a single microorganism and inherently predicts the random variability of pathogen transport.
