From the Back Cover:

Applied Algorithms + Software Packages = Advanced Tools for Solving Complex Problems

The newest digital techniques, built on the sound foundations of the classic, best-selling text.

With a combination of user-friendly software and classic algorithms, students learn to solve problems through reasoning rather than memorization.

Thorough coverage of the fundamentals of chemical reaction engineering forms the backbone of this trusted text, presented in a framework that helps develop critical-thinking skills and practical problem-solving. All the classical elements are covered. Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering, Third Edition, builds a strong understanding of chemical reaction engineering principles and shows how they can be applied to numerous reactions in a variety of applications.

The structured approach helps develop skills in critical thinking, creative thinking, and problem-solving, by employing open-ended questions and stressing the Socratic method.

To enhance the transfer of skills to real-life settings, three styles of problems are included for each subject:

  • Straightforward problems that reinforce the material
  • Problems that encourage students to explore the issues and look for optimum solutions
  • Open-ended problems that encourage students to practice creative problem-solving skills
Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering, Third Edition remains a leader as the only undergraduate-level book to focus on computer-based solutions to chemical reaction problems. About the CD-ROM

The enclosed CD offers numerous enrichment opportunities for both students and instructors, including:

  • Learning Resources: lecture notes, web modules, and problem-solving heuristics
  • Living Example Problems: POLYMATH software that allows students to explore the examples and ask "what-if" questions
  • Professional Reference Shelf: detailed derivations, equations, general engineering materials, and specialty reactors and reaction systems
  • Additional Study Materials: extra homework problems, course syllabi, guides to popular software packages

Throughout the text, margin icons link concepts and procedures to the material on the CD for fully integrated learning and reference.
