Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Process design is the focal point of chemical engineering practice: the creative activity through which engineers continuously improve facility operations to create products that enhance life. Effective chemical engineering design requires students to integrate a broad spectrum of knowledge and intellectual skills, so they can analyze both the big picture and minute details - and know when to focus on each. Through three previous editions, this book has established itself as the leading resource for students seeking to apply what they've learned in real-world, open-ended process problems. The authors help students hone and synthesize their design skills through expert coverage of preliminary equipment sizing, flowsheet optimization, economic evaluation, operation and control, simulation, and other key topics. This new Fourth Edition is extensively updated to reflect new technologies, simulation techniques, and process control strategies, and to include new pedagogical features including concise summaries and end-of-chapter lists of skills and knowledge.

More 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.

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.
