Physicochemical Hydrodynamics: An Introduction, 2nd Edition
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.
