From the Publisher

This book describes how modeling fluid flow in chemical reactors may offer solutions that improve design, operation, and performance of reactors. Chemical reactors are any vessels, tubes, pipes, or tanks in which chemical reactions take place. Computational Flow Modeling for Chemical Reactor Engineering will show the reactor engineer how to define the specific roles of computational flow modeling, select appropriate tools, and apply these tools to link reactor hardware to reactor performance. Overall methodology is illustrated with numerous case studies.

Industry has invested substantial funds in computational flow modeling which will pay off only if it can be used to realize significant performance enhancement in chemical reactors. No other single source exists which provides the information contained in this book.

Riding Out Necessary Risk

THE MOMENT people retire, I’ve found, their perspective on their portfolio suddenly shifts. For 40 years they were long-term investors, saving for tomorrow. But instantly they’re thinking only about the present, and they’re hyper-focused on risk. They turn terrified overnight. This transformation can pose a problem. New retirees may decide that the payoff of growth isn’t worth enduring the market’s ups and downs, so they invest too conservatively. That will hurt them later on. If your portfolio doesn’t grow, inflation will eat up the income you thought would support you forever. You have to l

Hedge-Fund Managers With Flashy Sports Cars Make Worse Investors

For most lay investors, figuring out how to allocate money presents a dilemma. A dizzying maze of experts, investors, fund managers, and advisors exists to allow people to outsource their questions to a financial professional who can make responsible decisions on their behalf to grow savings. But to reliably figure out who won’t rip them off or make bad calls, regular people have to know so much that they could almost invest the money themselves in the first place. Finance writers and others in the guidance-giving business offer some shortcuts to try to keep things simple. These range from the
