Description

While the PSE community continues its focus on understanding, synthesizing, modeling, designing, simulating, analyzing, diagnosing, operating, controlling, managing, and optimizing a host of chemical and related industries using the systems approach, the boundaries of PSE research have expanded considerably over the years. While early PSE research was largely concerned with individual units and plants, the current research spans wide ranges of scales in size (molecules to processing units to plants to global multinational enterprises to global supply chain networks; biological cells to ecological webs) and time (instantaneous molecular interactions to months of plant operation to years of strategic planning). The changes and challenges brought about by increasing globalization and the the common global issues of energy, sustainability, and environment provide the motivation for the theme of PSE2012: Process Systems Engineering and Decision Support for the Flat World.

Key Features

  • Each theme includes an invited chapter based on the plenary presentation by an eminent academic or industrial researcher
  • Reports on the state-of-the-art advances in the various fields of process systems engineering
  • Addresses common global problems and the research being done to solve them

Readership

Process Systems Engineering academics, researchers, and practitioners
