Description

Bottom line: For a holistic view of chemical engineering design, this book provides as much, if not more, than any other book available on the topic. --Extract from Chemical Engineering Resources review.

Chemical Engineering Design is one of the best-known and widely adopted texts available for students of chemical engineering. It deals with the application of chemical engineering principles to the design of chemical processes and equipment. Revised throughout, this US edition has been specifically developed for the US market. It covers the latest aspects of process design, operations, safety, loss prevention and equipment selection, among others. Comprehensive in coverage, exhaustive in detail, it is supported by extensive problems and a separate solutions manual for adopting tutors and lecturers. In addition, the book is widely used by professions as a day-to-day reference.

Key Features

  • Provides students with a text of unmatched relevance for the Senior Design Course and Introductory Chemical Engineering Courses
  • Teaches commercial engineering tools for simulation and costing
  • Comprehensive coverage of unit operations, design and economics
    Strong emphasis on HS&E issues, codes and standards, including API, ASME and ISA design codes and ANSI standards
  • 108 realistic commercial design projects from diverse industries

Readership

Chemical and Biochemical Engineering students (senior undergraduate year, plus appropriate for capstone design courses where taken, plus graduates) and lecturers/tutors; professionals in industry ¬– chemical process, biochemical, pharmaceutical, petrochemical sectors

Reviews

' An essential support text for the traditional design product. ...Well written, it is easy to read and is superbly indexed' Trans IChemE ‘An excellent book for professionals and university students... you can find everything you need about mass and heat transfer.’ Mehmet Aras, Bayer. From www.cheresources.com (Chemical Engineering Resources): ‘Bottom line: For a holistic view of chemical engineering design, this book provides as much, if not more, than any other book available on the topic. Nearly every subject is accompanied by examples and new technologies are also addressed. In short, a complete, well-written and illustrated resource that is a pleasure to use.’ "Chemical Engineering Design is a complete text for students of chemical engineering" "Written for the senior design course, and also suitable for introduction to chemical engineering courses, it covers the basics of unit operations and the latest aspects of process design, equipment selection, plant and operating economics, safety and loss prevention." "It includes detailed worked examples, case studies, end-of-chapter exercises, plus supporting data, spreadsheet calculations and equipment specification sheets for downloading."
