This book covers the transport of momentum, heat, and mass in non-equilibrium systems. It derives balance equations for general properties and introduces the concepts of convective and diffusive flux. These are applied to the conservation of mass.
Precise control of level, temperature, pressure and flow is important in many process applications. This book introduces you to control in process industries, explains why it is important, and identifies the ways in which precise control is ensured.
