Introductory Transport Phenomena, 1st Edition

Introductory Transport Phenomena by R. Byron Bird, Warren
E. Stewart, Edwin N. Lightfoot, and Daniel Klingenberg is a new
introductory textbook based on the classic Bird, Stewart, Lightfoot
text, Transport Phenomena. The authors’ goal in writing this
book reflects topics covered in an undergraduate course. Some of
the rigorous topics suitable for the advanced students have been
The text covers topics such as: the transport of momentum; the transport of energy and the transport of chemical species. The organization of the material is similar to Bird/Stewart/Lightfoot, but presentation has been thoughtfully revised specifically for undergraduate students encountering these concepts for the first time.
Devoting more space to mathematical derivations and providing fuller explanations of mathematical developments—including a section of the appendix devoted to mathematical topics—allows students to comprehend transport phenomena concepts at an undergraduate level.

- This text is an undergraduate-level adaptation of the respected Transport Phenomena title, by Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot.
- Emphasis is placed on the similarities and differences between the development of the three types of conservation equations and their associated transport coefficients. Each may be studied at one of three different levels: molecular, microscopic and macroscopic.
- Each chapter provides a summary section and a discussion which can be used as “flipped classroom” activities.
- Mathematical derivations have been explained step-by-step, making explanations more accessible for undergraduate students.
"Introductory Transport Phenomena is one of the most complete books on the subject, including sections on the topics of momentum, mass and energy transport. It’s unusual to find a book that so deeply covers all three subjects as this one."
