book coverFluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transfer are all important transport processes in biological systems. They are all analogous at the conceptual level, a fact that leads itself to a systems approach. This is the only transport textbook that begins with a chapter on systems.

Numerous worked examples and diagrams for design approaches allow this book to be used as a manual for design of transport problems both in and around biological systems. Numerous tables of values help to complete numerical solutions.

Application areas included in this book range from bioenvironmental to biomedical, including also agriculture and biotechnology. There are 373 problems included dealing with all of these applications. A very thorough index eases finding material in the book.

A solutions manual is available to qualified instructors, but not to students. Contact Dr. Johnson for details.
