The Leading Integrated Chemical Process Design Guide: Now with New Problems, New Projects, and More
More than ever, effective design is the focal point of sound chemical engineering. Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, Third Edition, presents design as a creative process that integrates both the big picture and the small details—and knows which to stress when, and why. Realistic from start to finish, this book moves readers beyond classroom exercises into open-ended, real-world process problem solving. The authors introduce integrated techniques for every facet of the discipline, from finance to operations, new plant design to existing process optimization.
This fully updated Third Edition presents entirely new problems at the end of every chapter. It also adds extensive coverage of batch process design, including realistic examples of equipment sizing for batch sequencing; batch scheduling for multi-product plants; improving production via intermediate storage and parallel equipment; and new optimization techniques specifically for batch processes.
About the CD-ROM
The CD-ROM contains the latest version of CAPCOST, a powerful tool for evaluating fixed capital investment, full process economics, and profitability—now expanded with cost data for conveyors, crystallizers, dryers, dust collectors, filters, mixers, reactors, and screens. It also contains the HENSAD tool for constructing temperature interval, cascade, and temperature enthalpy diagrams; estimating optimal approach temperatures; and designing heat exchanger networks. Also provided: additional chapters on outcomes assessment, written and oral communications, and a written report case study, as well as six complete student design projects.
Focuses on process design as the focal point of chemical engineering practice. Covers chemical process diagrams, engineering economic analysis of chemical processes, technical analysis of chemical processes, analysis of system performance, synthesis and optimization of a process flow diagram, professional engineering standards, environmental concerns, and communication issues. The included CD-ROM contains CAPCOST, a Windows-based program for estimating the fixed capital cost of a process. By entering capacity, operating pressure, and materials of construction data for all major process equipment, the total installed cost of a chemical process can be estimated.
