Illinois Tech Alumni Team Publishes Novel Transport Phenomena Chemical Engineering Textbook

Illinois Tech alumni Dr. Hamid Arastoopour (M.S. GE ’75, Ph.D. GE 78’), Henry R. Linden Professor of Engineering and Director of the Wanger Institute for Sustainable Energy Research (WISER), Dr. Dimitri Gidaspow (Ph.D. GT ‘62) Distinguished University Professor Emeritus in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, and Dr. Robert W. Lyczkowski (M.S. GE ’66, Ph.D. GT ‘70) collaborated as authors of the newly released Transport Phenomena in Multiphase Systems. Margaret M. Murphy (M.S. TCID ‘99), WISER Assistant Director and Program Outreach Manager, served as editor of the textbook.

The volume fills the need for a textbook presenting basic governing and constitutive equations, followed by several engineering problems on multiphase flow and transport that are not provided in current advanced texts, monographs, or handbooks. The unique emphasis of this book is on the sound formulation of the basic equations describing multiphase transport and how they can be used to design processes in selected industrially important fields.

The three authors represent a combination of more than a century of experience and innovative application of multiphase transport representing hundreds of publications and several books. Ordering information is available on the Springer website
