1. There are some good examples
2. Answers to some difficult, multiple part problems are given (under the problems which is quite handy) so that you can complete later parts of a problem if you are not able to solve the early parts.
3. Figures used in text are well defined and labeled very well.
4. Problems are well organized and titled based upon the material they cover.
5. There are few, if any, pictures, figures, or other useless graphics or material that so many textbook writers include, that add virtually nothing to the learning of the subject at hand. This is very nice because it keeps the weight of the textbook relatively low, and does not force you to scan through the 'fluff' to find the pertinent information.
1. Unit conversion tables are unconventional, awkward, and are very limited. Some students may have conversions memorized, however, this is not always the case, and for some obscure units, the conversions are not given and must be found elsewhere.
2. Examples are hit or miss. As I said, there are some good examples, however, there are some that are not very useful.
3. Problems can be somewhat cryptic, and not at all straightforward.
4. Sometimes skips key steps in derivations leading to confusing results.
5. Chapter reviews are nonexistent. It would be very nice if there were a list of important equations, definitions, and key concepts at the end of each chapter.
I understand that this is a very tough subject, especially if this is the first time seeing the material.Read more ›
The basis idea of the book is simple: list the equations useful for a system of problems, say in mass transfer; provide set of assumptions used to arrive at those; suggest possible solutions to the differential equations for practical industry conditions; use correlations derived by researchers where real time data is unavailable and lastly, learn how to adapt solutions for different set of conditions. The book attempts to make problem solving into a set of instructions to be followed, and by sticking to the fundamental assumptions and equations allows one to attack a range of problems relevant to fields as diverse as diffusion transport, biochemical processes, condensation problems for atmospheric physics, chemical kinetics, heat conduction, petroleum extraction and flow of fluids relevant to many processing industries.
We often hailed it as the Bible of Chemical Engineering. Every now and then, (nearly a decade after we first read it) I still hear people say: this problem, or something like it, was in BSL, (the acronym awarded to the book after its authors). Be it Transport texts by Deen or Middleman typically used for graduate school courses, or Incompressible Flow by Patton, the recourse to understanding problems first hand through BSL is always rewarding.
The book comes with a number of solved and unsolved problems.Read more ›
Choice A: Run, go do something else, enjoy college
Choice B: Buy this, it's the transport phenomena bible of chemical engineering.
Seriously, this is a great book for fluid flow (momentum transfer), mass transfer, heat transfer. Bad book for life transfer

I thought it was going to be in better condition than stated. Very cheap though.Published 4 months ago by hugo vignolo
This textbook is a requirement for chemical engineering. Clearly and rigorously derived, the book and its contents are incredibly useful.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
