The omission of the latter is surprising in that fluieization has been a major problem for fluidized coal combustion, the development of which is given by the authors as a reason for producing a new edition.

Fluidization Engineering Butterworth-Heinemann series in chemical engineering Butterworths monographs in chemistry Chemical Engineering Series.

Its aim is to distill from the thousands of studies those particular developments that are pertinent for the engineer concerned with predictive methods, for the designer, and for the user and potential user of fluidized beds.

Two examples are the design of dryers, which requires heat and mass transfer but without reaction, and pneumatic conveying, which is used to transport solids to and from reactors. The choice of examples has been fully revised from the first edition with the addition of modern applications and the removal of fluieization promising ideas that never fully caught on. Engineering Tribology — Second Edition.


The Biomedical Engineering Handbook, second edition, two volumes. Completely revised and updated, it is essentially a new book.

The academic background of Levenspiel shows in the pedagogical approach of the book. References to this book Particle-fluid two-phase flow: Essentially a textbook on the design of fluidized beds for gas-solid reactions, levenepiel will be of use to the designer engineerig is prepared to learn about fluidization, as well as students of the subject and lecturers: Topics that do not appear are liquid fluidization, erosion and abrasion.

Fluidization XI Present and future for fluidization Engineering. Rotordynamics prediction in engineering second edition. The diagrams are drawn more boldly and modern devices, such as shaded boxes, boxed equations and headings in the margin, are used. Design of Catalytic Reactors.

Fluidization Engineering, Second Editionexpands on its original scope to encompass these new areas and introduces reactor models specifically for these contacting regimes. This does not detract from the value of the revision, and I am sure that anyone who has found the original useful would find the second edition well worth buying.

Other editions – View all Fluidization Engineering D. The structure is clear and there are many useful worked examples. Particles of Changing Size.

Fluidization Engineering (Second Edition)

Covers the recent advances in the field of fluidization. Perhaps this should be counted as an advantage in that half the pages are easily read! Entrainment from Large Particle. Math concepts for food engineering — Second edition.

Heat Transfer between Fluidized. Presents the studies of developments necessary to the engineers, designers, and users of fluidized beds. Its aim is to distill from the thousands of studies those particular User Review – Flag as inappropriate The book fluidization engineering is good book detailing all aspects in fluidization.


Overall, this is a well presented book, which will be of value to both students and designers who desire a deeper understanding of fluidized bed reactors and their applications. I am sure it is one that I will be referring to many times in the future. Account Options Sign in. There is a heavy bias towards Japanese processes in a comprehensive coverage.

Like most blurbs this should be taken with a pinch of salt. Sections have been shuffled, deleted and added, but a great deal of the original is still present.

The Mapping of Fluidization Regimes. Fluidization Engineering Second Edition. User Review – Flag as inappropriate. The use of margins is not consistent between text and diagrams and this gives a lop-sided feel, particularly when there are no marginal headings on a page with both text and figures.

Perhaps the best justification for describing this edition as an essentially kunij book lies in the presentation. The practice of using a wide left-hand margin to accommodate occasional headings and a narrow right-hand margin means that the right-hand page is much more easily levenwpiel than the left-hand one, where the end of the line disappears into the fold in the spine.

The talents and experience of both authors combine well in the book. The book fluidization engineering is good book detailing all aspects in fluidization. Other applications that require the same principles are included in the overall scheme.
