Now in its second edition, this authoritative reference provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of powder science and technology and builds upon them, emphasizing practical applications in the design, production, processing, and handling of applications. The book features contributors from twenty-one internationally renowned and respected professionals and researchers in the field. Their chapters focus on problem solving, but also provide a solid link between theory and practise. Organized in a logical manner, this handbook begins by introducing the reader to the fundamentals of solid particulates, covering the concept of particle size measurement and analysis, surface characteristics, structural properties of packings of particles, and rheological properties of particles. The remainder of the book provides a thorough treatment of known and potential applications of powder technology, including a literature survey, problem applications, case histories, and design parameters. Extensive updates have been made to all of the chapters, references, problems, and case histories, reflecting new developments in the technology of powder science. Additions to the book include three new chapters on: health hazards for respirable dust, dense phase pneumetic conveying, and dust explosions and fire hazards. The Handbook of Powder Science and Technology, Second Edition can be used as a reference for those who have little or no experience in powder technology. It serves equally well as a manual and handbook for technologists, design engineers and scientists who have previous experience with powders. It is also a useful reference for research or as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses.
