About this book


Methods of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) are increasingly applied in engineering sciences. The book summarizes research in the field of chemical and process engineering performed at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Fundamentals of the methods are exposed for readers with an engineering background. Applications cover the fields of mechanical process engineering (filtration, solid-liquid separation, powder mixing, rheometry), chemical process engineering (trickle-bed reactor, ceramic sponges), bioprocess engineering (biofilm growth), and food process engineering (microwave heating, emulsions). Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as well as low-field NMR are covered with notes on hardware. Emphasis is placed on quantitative data analysis and image processing.

From the reviews:

“This book is a compilation and summary of NMR- and MR imaging–related research and teaching at the author’s institution … . The book is primarily intended for readers with an engineering background who are interested in applying or developing NMR or MR imaging methods for the study of structure and transport in mechanical, chemical, and food process engineering. … readers interested in clinical applications of these methods should also find the book relevant and useful.” (Jingfei Ma, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 54 (4), April, 2013)
