Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering, 5th Edition

H. Scott Fogler

The Definitive, Fully Updated Guide to Solving Real-World Chemical Reaction Engineering Problems

For decades, H. Scott Fogler’s Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering has been the world’s dominant text for courses in chemical reaction engineering. Now, Fogler has created a new, completely updated fifth edition of his internationally respected book. The result is a refined book that contains new examples and problems, as well as an updated companion Web site. More than ever, Fogler has successfully integrated text, visuals, and computer simulations to help both undergraduate and graduate students master all of the field’s fundamentals. As always, he links theory to practice through many relevant examples, ranging from standard isothermal and non-isothermal reactor design to applications, such as solar energy, blood clotting, and drug delivery, and computer chip manufacturing.

To promote the transfer of key skills to real-life settings, Fogler presents the following three styles of problems:

  1. Straightforward problems that reinforce the principles of chemical reaction engineering
  2. Living Example Problems (LEPs) that allow students to rapidly explore the issues and look for optimal solutions
  3. Open-ended problems that encourage students to practice creative problem-solving skills

There is a supplement to this book containing full details on the related COMSOL Multiphysics models.
