A Practical Approach to Chemical Engineering for Non-Chemical Engineers is aimed for people who are dealing with chemical engineers or are involved in chemical processing plants and who are struggling with understanding concepts and jargons. The book demystifies the complicated chemical engineering concepts through daily life examples and analogies. It contains many illustrations and tables that facilitate quick and in-depth understanding of the concepts handled in the book.
By studying this book, practicing engineers (non-chemical), professionals, technicians and other skilled workers, who are dealing with chemical engineers in their workplace, will gain a deeper understanding of what chemical engineers say and what they ask for. The book is also useful for engineering students who plan to get into chemical engineering as they will gain a better practical understanding of what chemical engineering is about.
- Includes numerous graphs, images, sketches, tables, help better understanding of concepts in a visual way
- Describes complicated chemical engineering concepts by daily life examples and analogies, rather than by formula
- Includes a virtual tour of an imaginary process plant
- Explains the majority of units in chemical engineering
