Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
The leading integrated chemical process design guide: Now with extensive new coverage and more process designsMore than ever, effective design is the focal point of sound chemical engineering. Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, Fourth Edition, presents design as a creative process that integrates both the big picture and the small details-and knows which to stress when, and why. Realistic from start to finish, this updated edition moves readers beyond classroom exercises into open-ended, real-world process problem solving. The authors introduce integrated techniques for every facet of the discipline, from finance to operations, new plant design to existing process optimization. This fourth edition adds new chapters introducing dynamic process simulation; advanced concepts in steady-state simulation; extensive coverage of thermodynamics packages for modeling processes containing electrolyte solutions and solids; and a concise introduction to logic control. "What You Have Learned" summaries have been added to each chapter, and the text's organization has been refined for greater clarity. Coverage Includes Conceptualization and analysis: flow diagrams, batch processing, tracing, process conditions, and product design strategies Economic analysis: capital and manufacturing costs, financial calculations, and profitability analysis Synthesis and optimization: principles, PFD synthesis, simulation techniques, top-down and bottom-up optimization, pinch technology, and software-based control Advanced steady-state simulation: goals, models, solution strategies, and sensitivity and optimization studies Dynamic simulation: goals, development, solution methods, algorithms, and solvers Performance analysis: I/O models, tools, performance curves, reactor performance, troubleshooting, and "debottlenecking" Societal impact: ethics, professionalism, health, safety, environmental issues, and green engineering Interpersonal and communication skills: improving teamwork and group effectiveness This title draws on more than fifty years of innovative chemical engineering instruction at West Virginia University and the University of Nevada, Reno. It includes suggested curricula for single-semester and year-long design courses, case studies and practical design projects, current equipment cost data, and extensive preliminary design information that can be used as the starting point for more detailed analyses. About the CD-Rom and Web Site The CD contains the newest version of CAPCOST, a powerful tool for evaluating fixed capital investment, full process economics, and profitability. The heat exchanger network software, HENSAD, is also included. The CD also contains an additional appendix presenting preliminary design information for fifteen key chemical processes, including four new to this edition: shift reaction; acid-gas removal via physical solvent; H2S removal from a gas stream using the Claus process; and coal gasification. The CD also includes six additional projects, plus chapters on outcomes assessment, written and oral communications, and a written report case study. Sixty additional projects and twenty-four more problems are available at www.che.cemr.wvu.edu/publications/projects.

CHOICE ReviewThis big book combines the usual costing and equipment sizing information that other chemical plant design books include, with a detailed consideration of the developmental steps used to arrive at a process flow diagram. Hence it forms the basis for a more complete and modern plant and process design course sequence than most of its competitors. After an introductory section on the various forms of flow diagrams, there are sections on engineering economic analysis, technical analysis of system performance, synthesis and optimization of a process flow diagram, and a concluding section on the professional environment of engineers. The economic analyses use computer-generated equipment cost data that are available on the enclosed compact disc. The process synthesis is done using CHEMCAD; the structure and use of this and other simulators are discussed, as are the bases of the technical data packages on which they depend. Appendixes supply the equation and curves for the cost data and also the preliminary process design information for four processes used as examples throughout the book. An excellent work for the teaching of plant and process design, but without the performance and property data that a practicing engineer might need. Upper-division undergraduates. L. A.
