Physicochemical hydrodynamics : an introduction by Ronald F Probstein( Book )

47 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Second Edition of Ronald F. Probstein's Physicochemical Hydrodynamics is significantly expanded and revised to provide increased coverage of the field. All of the material was supplemented with problems for students, and a solutions manual is available for instructors. The continued demand for the book necessitates that the Second Edition be reprinted in paperback so that it may be more widely available to student and practitioners."--BOOK JACKET
Synthetic fuels by Ronald F Probstein( Book )

21 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, the outgrowth of a graduate course the authors taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was designed to fill an urgent need -- the training of engineers in the production of synthetic fuels to replace dwindling supplies of natural ones. The authors presented synthetic fuels as a unified engineering subject, while recognizing that many of its principles are well-understood aspects of various engineering fields. The presentation begins with a review of chemical and physical fundamentals and conversion fundamentals, and proceeds to coal gasification and gas upgrading. Subsequent chapters examine liquids and clean solids produced from coal, liquids obtained from oil shale and tar sands, biomass conversion, and environmental, economic, and related aspects of synthetic fuel use. The text is directed toward beginning graduate students and advanced undergraduates in chemical and mechanical engineering, but should also appeal to students from other disciplines, including environmental, mining, petroleum, and industrial engineering, as well as chemistry. It also serves as a reference and guide for professionals
Physics of shock waves and high-temperature hydrodynamic phenomena by I︠A︡. B Zelʹdovich( Book )

16 editions published between 1966 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The physical and chemical processes occurring in gases at high temperatures are the focus of this outstanding text by two distinguished physicists. They discuss essential physical influences on the dynamics and thermodynamics of continuous media, combining material from such disciplines as gas dynamics, shock-wave theory, thermodynamics and statistical physics, molecular physics, spectroscopy, radiation theory, astrophysics, solid-state physics, and other fields. Originally published in two volumes, 1966-1967

Water in synthetic fuel production : the technology and alternatives by Ronald F Probstein( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hypersonic inviscid flow by Wallace D Hayes( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This treatment of the branch of fluid mechanics known as hypersonic inviscid flow presents a unified, self-contained view of nonequilibrium effects, body geometries, and similitudes available in hypersonic flow and thin shock layer. Appropriate for graduate-level courses in hypersonic flow theory and courses dealing with compressible flow. 1966 edition
A Turbulent flow theory of electrodialysis by Ronald F Probstein( Book )

An analysis of counterwashers for freeze-distillation desalination by Joseph Shwartz( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hydrodynamic theory of desalination by electrodialysis by A. A Sonin( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics of shock waves and high-temperature hydrodynamic phenomena by I︠A︡. B Zelʹdovich( Book )

Hypersonic flow theory by Wallace D Hayes( Book )

11 editions published between 1959 and 1966 in English and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hypersonic Flow Theory presents the fundamentals of fluid mechanics, focusing on the hypersonic flow theory and approaches in theoretical aerodynamics. This book discusses the assumptions underlying hypersonic flow theory, unified supersonic-hypersonic similitude, two-dimensional and axisymmetric bodies, and circular cylinder. The constant-streamtube-area approximation, streamtube-continuity methods, and tangent-wedge and tangent-cone are also deliberated. This text likewise covers the similar laminar boundary layer solutions, bluntness induced interactions on slender bodies, and free m

Physics of shock waves and high-temperature hydrodynamic phenomena by I︠A︡. B Zelʹdovich( Book )

6 editions published between 1966 and 1970 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High temperatures elicit a variety of reactions in gases, including increased molecular vibrations, dissociation, chemical reactions, ionization, and radiation of light. In addition to affecting the motion of the gas, these processes can lead to changes of composition and electrical properties, as well as optical phenomena. These and other processes of extreme conditions -- such as occur in explosions, in supersonic flight, in very strong electrical discharges, and in other cases -- are the focus of this outstanding text by two leading physicists of the former Soviet Union. The authors deal thoroughly with all the essential physical influences on the dynamics and thermodynamics of continuous media, weaving together material from such disciplines as gas dynamics, shock-wave theory, thermodynamics and statistical physics, molecular physics, spectroscopy, radiation theory, astrophysics, solid-state physics, and other fields
Physicochemical hydrodynamics : an introduction( )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the first publication of the book, a surge of interest in physicochemical hydrodynamics (PCH) has produced a flurry of advances in the field, as researchers became aware of the subject’s practical applications across numerous disciplines. The Second Edition of Ronald F. Probstein’s Physicochemical Hydrodynamics is significantly expanded and revised to provide increased coverage of the field. All of the material was supplemented with problems for students, and a solutions manual is available for instructors. The continued demand for the book necessitates that the Second Edition be reprinted in paperback so that it may be more widely available to students and practitioners. This highly respected book emphasizes rational theory and its consequences to demonstrate the underlying unity of PCH, which allows diverse phenomena to be described in physically and mathematically similar ways. Physicochemical Hydrodynamics communicates the fundamentals while, at the same time, conveying the importance of applications of PCH to a variety of fields, including: mechanical, chemical, and environmental engineering; materials science, biotechnology, microfluidics, and fluid aspects of nanotechnology. Numerous illustrations, analogies, and examples highlight the text and help to clarify and solidify students’ and professionals’ understanding of the material
