Title: Principles of Unit Operations.
Author: Alan Foust.
Edition: Student Edition on Demand.
Type: Handbook Pdf.
Alan Shivers Foust was my graduate advisor at Lehigh. He was also, back in the late 1950s, my Chemical Engineering instructor in Unit Operations. He and his associates (Len Wenzel, Curt Clump, and Bryce Anderson) wrote this book. We sophomore students were paid a penny for each typo or mistake which we found in one of the early drafts:)
Dr. Foust, et. al first classified the three unit operations by the underlying process—-heat transfer, mass transfer, momentum transfer. I believe that was a revolutionary point of view at the time. But it made it easy for me to build a macro view of Chemical Engineering which has lasted for a lifetime! Many have expanded upon this view over the last 50-odd years, but this is the original.
The second aspect which made this book of great and lasting value is that it is packed with worked examples. The third aspect is that these examples provide illustration about conversion of units from a variety of systems into the English system.
