Description

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.

Key Features

Provides an introduction to the newest design methods.
Of great value to undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as professional engineers.
Numerous examples illustrate theoretical priciples and design issues.

Readership

Chemical engineering and industrial chemistry university departments; libraries of companies in basic chemicals, petrochemicals, refining and gas processing; engineering contractors; chemical engineers; undergraduate and postgraduate students.

About the Author

Alexandre Dimian

Alexandre Dimian, PhD, is one of the pioneers in Europe in using computer-aided process engineering (CAPE) in industry and for teaching. He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University “Politehnica” of Bucharest, and TU Hanover, and MSc in Computer Science from Ecole Centrale Paris. As professor in the Netherlands, he taught various process design and integration courses at graduate and postgraduate level from 1993 to 2011, at the University of Amsterdam and TU Eindhoven. He has a solid industrial experience working many years as consultant in CAPE applications with major companies in France and the Netherlands, namely in using computer simulation for design and operation of complex industrial processes. Professor Dimian is member of the Romanian Technical Academy and was awarded a Dr.H.C. title by the University “Politehnica” of Bucharest, where he is continuing the scientific activity.
