The Leading Integrated Chemical Process Design Guide: With Extensive Coverage of Equipment Design and Other Key Topics
More than ever, effective design is the focal point of sound chemical engineering. Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, Fifth Edition, presents design as a creative process that integrates the big-picture and small details, and knows which to stress when and why. Realistic from start to finish, it moves readers beyond classroom exercises into open-ended, real-world problem solving. The authors introduce up-to-date, integrated techniques ranging from finance to operations, and new plant design to existing process optimization.
Coverage includes updated safety and ethics resources and economic factors indices, as well as an extensive section focused on process equipment design and performance, covering equipment design for common unit operations, such as fluid flow, heat transfer, separations, reactors, and more. For each equipment type, it presents design rationales and correlations; rating, sizing, and mechanical considerations; performance assessment techniques; illustrative examples, and full sample designs.
This text draws on a combined 55 years of innovative instruction at West Virginia University (WVU) and the University of Nevada, Reno. It includes suggested curricula for one- and two-semester design courses, case studies, projects, equipment cost data, and extensive preliminary design information for jump-starting more detailed analyses.
