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 flowsystems. 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.
