Integrated Design and Simulation of Chemical Processes

By

  • Alexandre Dimian, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This title aims to teach how to invent optimal and sustainable chemical processes by making use of systematic conceptual methods and computer simulation techniques. The material covers five sections: process simulation; thermodynamic methods; process synthesis; process integration; and design project including case studies. It is primarily intended as a teaching support for undergraduate and postgraduate students following various process design courses and projects, but will also be of great value to professional engineers interested in the newest design methods.
