Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As the title suggest I am an student chemical engineer and was wondering if anybody could advise on some good books for the following subjects. I have used spoiler tags to hide the specific areas I will be covering so as to make this post a bit neater.

Fluid Mechanics.Spoiler Covering: Modes of heat transfer, energy balances; Conduction (1-D & 2-D steady, lumped & 1-D transient); Heat exchangers (types, OHTC, fouling, LMTD and e-NTU analyses, detailed design of shell and tube heat exchangers); Convection ( forced convection correlations for internal & external flow, free convection correlations, boiling and condensation equations); Radiation (the blackbody, radiative surface properties, Kirchhoff’s law, view factors, radiation network diagrams, radiation exchange between surfaces, radiation shields)

Process Heat Transfer.Spoiler Covering: Modes of heat transfer, energy balances; Conduction (1-D & 2-D steady, lumped & 1-D transient); Heat exchangers (types, OHTC, fouling, LMTD and e-NTU analyses, detailed design of shell and tube heat exchangers); Convection ( forced convection correlations for internal & external flow, free convection correlations, boiling and condensation equations); Radiation (the blackbody, radiative surface properties, Kirchhoff’s law, view factors, radiation network diagrams, radiation exchange between surfaces, radiation shields)

Process Mass Transfer.Spoiler Covering: Molecular diffusion and convective diffusion, types of mass transfer coefficient. Interphase mass Transfer and Two resistance model, overall mass transfer coefficient. Equilibrium and Rate Processes. Distillation, V-L Equilibrium, Binary Equilibria, Enthalpy-concentration diagram, McCabe Thiele and Ponchon-Savarit methods of design for the unit operations of distillation. Material balance in contacting equipment, counter current mass transfer, staged and continuous contact processes. Gas Absorption and Packed Tower Design. Packings and Column Internals. Solvent Extraction and Leaching. Humidification.

CE Thermodynamics.Spoiler Covering: Introduction and Definitions; First Law of Thermodynamics; Volumetric Properties of Pure Fluids and mixtures; Second Law of Thermodynamics; Thermodynamic properties of pure Fluids and mixtures; Production of Power; Ideal and Non-ideal Vapour Liquid Equilibrium; Solution Thermodynamics; Chemical Reaction Equilibria.

Any help you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated.
