Chemical Engineering Design is one of the best-known and most widely adopted texts available for students of chemical engineering. It completely covers the standard chemical engineering final year design course, and is widely used as a graduate text. The hallmarks of this renowned book have always been its scope, practical emphasis and closeness to the curriculum. That it is written by practicing chemical engineers makes it particularly popular with students who appreciate its relevance and clarity. Building on this position of strength the fifth edition covers the latest aspects of process design, operations, safety, loss prevention and equipment selection, and much more. Comprehensive in coverage, exhaustive in detail, supported by extensive problem sets at the end of each chapter, a fully worked solutions manual and a suite of valuable software tools, this is a book that students will want to keep to hand as they enter their professional life.
International chemical engineering students (undergraduate and graduate) taking IChemE and ISO based courses; students taking process design courses in other process fields, including pharmaceutical, food and bioprocess engineering, mineral processing, production engineering, and equipment design courses; professionals in industry - chemical process, pharmaceutical, petrochemical sectors.
