Shell Process Control Workshop covers the proceedings of a workshop of the same name, held in Houston, Texas on December 15, 1986. The said workshop seeks to improve the communication process between academic researchers, industrial researchers, and the engineering community in the field of process control, and in turn improve understanding of the nature of the control problems. The book covers topics such as design methodology based on the fundamental control; expert systems in process control and optimization; artificial intelligence; and adaptive control for processes. Also covered are topics such the approach of systems engineering to process modeling; modeling and control of dispersed phase systems; and advances in the use of the internal model control. The text is recommended for researchers and practitioners in the field of engineers who would like to know more about process control and modeling.
