About this Textbook

This textbook offers an introduction to multiple, interdependent transport phenomena as they occur in various fields of physics and technology like transport of momentum, heat, and matter. These phenomena are found in a number of combined processes in the fields of chemical, food, biomedical, and environmental sciences. The book puts a special emphasis on numerical modeling of both purely diffusive mechanisms and macroscopic transport such as fluid dynamics, heat and mass convection.
To favor the applicability of the various concepts, they are presented with a simplicity of exposure, and synthesis has been preferred with respect to completeness. The book includes more than 130 graphs and figures, to facilitate the understanding of the various topics. It also presents many modeling examples throughout the text, to control that the learned material is properly understood.

There are some typos in the text. You can see the corrections here: http://www.springer.com/cda/content/document/cda_downloaddocument/ErrataCorrige_v0.pdf?SGWID=0-0-45-1679320-p181107156

About the authors

Gianpaolo Ruocco is Professor for “Engineering Thermodynamics and Nuclear Engineering” at Università della Basilicata in Potenza, Italy. After receiving his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 1992 from from University of Naples “Federico II” ,Gianpaolo Ruocco worked as Researcher, Lecturer and Professor for various institutions. Next to his academic carrier, he also served in various position in industry and public administration. He headed several spin-of companies.

As an acadmic teacher, Prof. Ruocco tough Engineering thermodynamics, Fundamentals of Statistics and Computer Science, Alternative Energy Management, and Transport Phenomena. His research activity focuses on various transport processes of heat and mass, the development of the methodological and application aspects through numerical, analytical, and experimental investigations.
