About this book
This is an extensively revised second edition of Interfacial Transport Phenomena, a unique presentation of transport phenomena or continuum mechanics focused on momentum, energy, and mass transfer at interfaces. In addition to tightening the focus of the book there are two important additions: an extended discussion of transport phenomena at common lines or three-phase lines of contact, as well as a new theory for the extension of continuum mechanics to the nanoscale region immediately adjacent to the interface. Applications and supporting experimental data are provided and discussed in detail.
This book is written for the advanced student of transport phenomena. The emphasis is upon achieving an in-depth understanding based upon first principles. It is designed to prepare the reader for active research. It includes exercises and answers, and can serve as a graduate level textbook.
