ISBN: 978-0-471-92422-7 January 1991 452 Pages


Powder technology is extremely important to a wide range of disciplines and industries including food, pharmaceutical manufacturing, minerals and metals processing, among others. Modeled after a short course designed specifically for graduate engineers working in industry, it presents the fundamental engineering properties of materials--essential knowledge for the design and operation of industrial equipment and processes. Contributors--all experts in their fields--provide comprehensive coverage, with a somewhat academic emphasis on the problems involved in handling massive solids, gases and liquids as industry calls for greater expertise in this field.
