This book is part of the Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering Set. Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precise knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.

In this volume, the author focuses the heat exchanges between gases, liquids, divided solids and compact solids without changes of phase.

This book includes discussion on changes of phase, heat exchange processes, combustion and the necessary equipment to measure these.

The author also provides methods needed for understanding the equipment used in applied thermodynamics in the hope of encouraging students and engineers to build the programs they need themselves.

The chapters are complemented with appendices which provide additional information as well as any associated references.
