Analysis of Transport Phenomena, Second Edition, provides a unified treatment of momentum, heat, and mass transfer, emphasizing the concepts and analytical techniques that apply to these transport processes. The second edition has been revised to reinforce the progression from simple to complex topics and to better introduce the applied mathematics that is needed both to understand classical results and to model novel systems. A common set of formulation, simplification, and solution methods is applied first to heat or mass transfer in stationary media and then to fluid mechanics, convective heat or mass transfer, and systems involving various kinds of coupled fluxes. FEATURES: * Explains classical methods and results, preparing students for engineering practice and more advanced study or research * Covers everything from heat and mass transfer in stationary media to fluid mechanics, free convection, and turbulence * Improved organization, including the establishment of a more integrative approach * Emphasizes concepts and analytical techniques that apply to all transport processes * Mathematical techniques are introduced more gradually to provide students with a better foundation for more complicated topics discussed in later chapters

Design, analysis and simulation of tissue constructs is an integral part of the ever-evolving field of biomedical engineering. The study of reaction kinetics, particularly when coupled with complex physical phenomena such as the transport of heat, mass and momentum, is required to determine or predict performance of biologically-based systems whether for research or clinical implementation. Transport Phenomena in Biomedical Engineering: Principles and Practices explores the concepts of transport phenomena alongside chemical reaction kinetics and thermodynamics to introduce the field of reaction engineering as it applies to physiologic systems in health and disease. It emphasizes the role played by these fundamental physical processes. The book first examines elementary concepts such as control volume selection and flow systems. It provides a comprehensive treatment with an overview of major research topics related to transport phenomena pertaining to biomedical engineering. Although each chapter is self-contained, they all bring forth and reinforce similar concepts through applications and discussions. With contributions from world-class experts, the book unmasks the fundamental phenomenological events in engineering devices and explores how to use them to meet the objectives of specific applications. It includes coverage of applications to drug delivery and cell- and tissue-based therapies.

Image processing and image analysis are typically important fieldsin information science and technology. By “imageprocessing”, we generally understand all kinds of operationperformed on images (or sequences of images) in order to increasetheir quality, restore their original content, emphasize someparticular aspect of the information or optimize theirtransmission, or to perform radiometric and/or spatial analysis. By“image analysis” we understand, however, all kinds ofoperation performed on images (or sequences of images) in order toextract qualitative or quantitative data, perform measurements andapply statistical analysis. Whereas there are nowadays many booksdealing with image processing, only a small number deal with imageanalysis. The methods and techniques involved in these fields ofcourse have a wide range of applications in our daily world:industrial vision, material imaging, medical imaging, biologicalimaging, multimedia applications, satellite imaging, qualitycontrol, traffic control, and so on

Seit Jahrtausenden versuchen wir, die Natur zu verstehen. Wir konnten einige der grossen Mysterien enträtseln, die uns umgeben, indem wir den Makro- und Mikrokosmos mit immer raffinierteren Werkzeugen untersuchen. Nicht nur, dass wir dabei eine überwältigende Vielfalt an Fakten gesammelt haben, wir enthüllten sogar Grundgesetze, welche die Struktur und Entwicklung der physikalischen Realität steuern. Insbesondere lernten wir aus diesen Beobachtungen, dass die Natur sich uns in der Sprache der Mathematik mitteilt. Die künstlichste aller Sprachen wird so zur natürlichsten. Die Gesetze stellen sich uns als Gleichungen dar, vielleicht der kompakteste und eindeutigste Ausdruck menschlichen Wissens. Dieses Buch ist ein Reiseführer zu den Gleichungen, den Meilensteinen des Wissens, die entscheidende Wendepunkte unseres Verständnises markieren. Wir wandern vom Herzstück der klassischen Physik, den Gesetzen von Newton und Maxwell, einerseits zu Einsteins scharfsinnigen Erkenntnissen über die Struktur von Raum und Zeit, und andererseits zu den Gleichungen von Schrödinger und Dirac und dem Standardmodell der Elementarteilchenphysik, das die Türen zum Mikrokosmos öffnete. Am Ende stehen wir vor den Super-Strings als mögliche Grundlage einer allumfassenden Theorie.

Enables readers to apply transport phenomena principles to solve advanced problems in all areas of engineering and science This book helps readers elevate their understanding of, and their ability to apply, transport phenomena by introducing a broad range of advanced topics as well as analytical and numerical solution techniques. Readers gain the ability to solve complex problems generally not addressed in undergraduate-level courses, including nonlinear, multidimensional transport, and transient molecular and convective transport scenarios. Avoiding rote memorization, the author emphasizes a dual approach to learning in which physical understanding and problem-solving capability are developed simultaneously. Moreover, the author builds both readers' interest and knowledge by: Demonstrating that transport phenomena are pervasive, affecting every aspect of life Offering historical perspectives to enhance readers' understanding of current theory and methods Providing numerous examples drawn from a broad range of fields in the physical and life sciences and engineering Contextualizing problems in scenarios so that their rationale and significance are clear This text generally avoids the use of commercial software for problem solutions, helping readers cultivate a deeper understanding of how solutions are developed. References throughout the text promote further study and encourage the student to contemplate additional topics in transport phenomena. Transport Phenomena is written for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in chemical and mechanical engineering. Upon mastering the principles and techniques presented in this text, all readers will be better able to critically evaluate a broad range of physical phenomena, processes, and systems across many disciplines.

Die Grundlagen und Methoden, die zur theoretischen Modellierung und zur Analyse von Strömungsvorgängen mit nicht-newtonschen Fluiden erforderlich sind, werden in diesem Lehrbuch vorgestellt. Zunächst werden die kinematischen, die kontinuumsmechanischen und die stofflichen Grundlagen ausführlich erläutert. Die Anwendung des Basiswissens erfolgt exemplarisch anhand ausgewählter Strömungsvorgänge, die maßgeblich von den nichtlinearen Fließeigenschaften, von den Normalspannungsdifferenzen oder vom Gedächtnis der Flüssigkeiten beeinflusst werden. Dabei haben sich die Inhalte, die Schwerpunkte und die Beispiele gegenüber der ersten Auflage wesentlich geändert. Erstmalig in einem deutschsprachigen Lehrbuch werden auch die Grundzüge einer numerischen Strömungssimulation unter Berücksichtigung komplexer rheologischer Stoffmodelle behandelt.
