Introductory Systems Analysis for Process Engineers places an emphasis on dynamic models derived using unsteady-state material and energy balances. Examples include chemical reactions, heat and mass transfer, and residence time distributions in flow systems. This book is intended as an undergraduate text for junior or senior year process engineers. It provides the mathematics needed for more advanced courses in process control, chemical reaction engineering, and process design.
Preface; Sets of ordinary differential equations; Some system models; Solution techniques; Laplace transforms; Laplace transform solutions to differential equations; Linear electrical circuits; Heat and mass transfer; Elementary mechanical systems; Transfer functions and network analysis; Residence time distributions; Matrix differential equations; Simulation techniques; Index.
