Conclusions and Perspectives

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES, volume 7)


In this book, the author has tried to show that the traditional ideas in design of three-phase fixed-bed reactors are erroneous. Many of these ideas represent nothing more than myths and misconceptions, which, nevertheless, are widely spread among academics and engineers.
