From the Back Cover

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

The fourth edition of Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering is a completely revised version of the worldwide best-selling book. It combines authoritative coverage of the principles of chemical reaction engineering with an unsurpassed focus on critical thinking and creative problem solving, employing open-ended questions and stressing the Socratic method. Clear and superbly organized, it integrates text, visuals, and computer simulations to help readers solve even the most challenging problems through reasoning, rather than by memorizing equations.

Thorough coverage of the fundamentals of chemical reaction engineering forms the backbone of this trusted text. To enhance the transfer of core skills to real-life settings, three styles of problems are included for each subject

  1. Straightforward problems that reinforce the material
  2. Problems that allow students to explore the issues and look for optimum solutions
  3. Open-ended problems that encourage students to practice creative problem-solving skills

H. Scott Fogler has updated his classic text to provide even more coverage of bioreactions, industrial chemistry with real reactors and reactions, and an even broader range of applications, along with the newest digital techniques, such as FEMLAB. The fourth edition of Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering contains wide-ranging examples—from smog to blood clotting, ethylene oxide production to tissue engineering, antifreeze to cobra bites, and computer chip manufacturing to chemical plant safety.

About the CD-ROM

The CD-ROM offers numerous enrichment opportunities for both students and instructors, including the following Learning Resources:

  • Summary Notes: Chapter-specific interactive material to address the different learning styles in the Felder/Solomon learning-style index
  • Learning Resources: Web modules, reactor lab modules, interactive computer modules, solved problems, and problem-solving heuristics
  • Living Example Problems: More than fifty-five interactive simulations in POLYMATH software, which allow students to explore the examples and ask “what-if” questions
  • Professional Reference Shelf: Advanced content, ranging from collision and transition state theory to aerosol reactors, DFT, runaway reactions, and pharmacokinetics
  • Additional Study Materials: Extra homework problems, course syllabi, and Web links to related material
  • Latest Software to Solve “Digital Age” Problems: FEMLAB to solve PDEs for the axial and radial concentration and temperature profiles, and Polymath to do regression, solve nonlinear equations, and solve single and coupled ODEs

Throughout the book, icons help readers link concepts and procedures to the material on the CD-ROM for fully integrated learning and reference.

The book is full of typos. Be careful when ordering because there are substantial differences between prints. I have the fifth print of the 4th edition (December 2008), and I have a friend who owns the 1st printing of the fourth edition, and he had typos in all 3 problems of our last homework set. Some of his problems contain fewer parts as well. Some of the values used in the problems of this text were clearly not chosen well enough to illustrate the principle they're supposed to illustrate. For example, in problem 8-8 they first ask you to plot temperature along the reactor with a coolant flow rate high enough to keep the coolant temperature approximately constant. Then the problem adjusts the coolant flowrate so that you have to account for the change in temperature of the coolant; however, the coolant flowrate is still large enough that the coolant temperature is approximately constant. This won't help the student see the importance of accounting for changes in coolant temperature; it just creates the illusion that you don't have to account for the change in coolant temperature. In problem 8-25, the mass of catalyst in the reactor is so large that all the changes in concentration occur within the first third of the reactor making the true shape of the plots generated difficult to see as all the changes are all occurring over a small distance. Another issue I have with the book (this one is subjective) is that the last part of many problems asks you how you would modify the problem to require more critical thinking. I understand that the intent of these parts is to force a student to think about what they are supposed to take away from the problem; however, a serious student will think critically about the problem anyway, and this open-ended component just ends up wasting the student's time. Please don't disregard this review; I'm being sincere.

The book seems to serve its purpose, and some of the questions are pretty funny. Never before have I had a homework problem say "Go home and take a break". Anyway. I guess if I'm hesitant it's because the class is tough.

Great Quality. CD included.
I really love this book with its language.
Fogler is a great writer for engineering.
I am especially impressed with the part of the book that
constantly outlines the important big picture for the reader

This is a good book. The explanation is very clear. There are a lot of useful examples to help you understand the reactor design well.

I actually enjoy reading this book because it is organized very well. Good job Fogler.

I do not like Chemical Engineering however

The author puts his own humor/college leanings in the book, but it's fairly easy to follow for me, when I was a Junior.

Great book, but it was missing the CD ROM that it should come with so I am unable to complete certain assignments without borrowing a friends.
