Brings together all the information engineers and researchers need to develop efficient, cost-effective chemical production processes.The book presents a systematic approach to chemical process design, covering both continuous and batch processes. Starting with the basics, the book then moves on to advanced topics. Among the topics covered are: flowsheet synthesis, mass and energy balances, equipment sizing and costing, economic evaluation, process simulation and optimization. The book also covers specific chemical processes such as distillation systems, reactor networks, separation, and heat exchange networks. It shows how to build more flexible processes, including multiproduct batch processes.Any researcher or practicing engineer involved in designing chemical processes.
From the Publisher:
Systematic Methods of Chemical Process Design is a textbook for undergraduate and graduate design courses. The book presents a step-by-step approach for learning the techniques for synthesizing and analyzing process flowsheets.
The scientific approach to process design.
Over the last 20 years, fundamental design concepts and advanced computer modeling have revolutionized process design for chemical engineering. Team work and creative problem solving are still the building blocks of successful design, but new design concepts and novel mathematical programming models based on computer-based tools have taken out much of the guesswork. This book presents the new revolutionary knowledge, taking a systematic approach to design at all levels.
A Solutions Manual is available; ISBN: 0-13-272337-9.
Systematic Methods of Chemical Process Design is a textbook for undergraduate and graduate design courses. The book presents a step-by-step approach for learning the techniques for synthesizing and analyzing process flowsheets. The major items involved in the design process are mirrored in the book's main sections:
Developed and refined in several courses at Carnegie Mellon, preliminary versions of the book have also been tested in Argentina, Brazil, England, Korea, Norway, and Slovenia. Exercises at the end of each chapter make it suitable for teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses, or for the working professional who wants to keep up with current methods.An undergraduate or graduate level design textbook presenting a step-by-step approach for learning the techniques for synthesizing and analyzing process flowsheets. The co-authors tested the materials in chemical engineering classes at Carnegie Mellon University, making the discussions particularly student friendly as the volume outlines the strategies for preliminary process analysis and evaluation, advanced analysis using rigorous models, basic concepts in process synthesis, and optimization models for process synthesis and design. Includes exercises and illustrations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
