This book has been written with the double purpose of being used as a textbook for university courses in unit operations and as a consulting book in the professional field of process engineering. Thusevery attempt has been made to maintain a difficult equilibrium in the weights assigned to theory and practice. It is assumed that the reader has taken courses in thermodynamics and is familiar with energy balances and the calculation of physical properties in simple systems with and without change of phase. Thus only a few basic concepts considered convenient for the fluidity of the redaction were included. It is also assumed that the reader have some basic knowledge of fluid mechanics and can write mechanical energy balances and calculate pressure drops in piping systems. A difficult decision was to choose the approach to Chap. 4 on convection. In the chemical engineering curricula in many universities, unit operations courses are preceded by a course in transport phenomena. In other universities, they are not. Some knowledge of the theory of transport phenomena helps in an under standing of the principles of convective heat transfer and allows a more elegant treatment of this subject, but a treatment based on transport equations also increases the mathematical complexity and is not particularly useful in daily engineering practice. Therefore, after rewriting Chap. 4 a few times, it was finally decided to avoid presenting a theoretical approach based on transport equations so as not to drive away readers whoare not friends of mathematics.
