Plant design and economics for chemical engineers / Max S. Peters; Klaus D. Timmerhaus; Ronald E. West

By: Peters, Max S [autor]Contributor(s): Timmerhaus, Klaus D [autor] | West, Ronald E [autor]Publisher: México : Mc Graw Hill, ©2003Edition: 5th edDescription: xvii, 988 páginas : ilustraciones, tablas ; 23 cmContent type: texto Media type: no mediado Carrier type: volumenISBN: 9780071240444Subject(s): Diseño de plantas | Diseño y construcción | Plantas quimicasDDC classification: 660.28
Contents:
Introduction. -- General design considerations. -- Process design development. -- Flowsheet synthesis and development. -- Software use in process design. -- Analysis of cost estimation. -- Interest, time value of money, taxes, and fixed charges. -- Profitability, alternative investments, and replacements. -- Optimum design and design strategy. -- Materials and fabrication selection. -- Written and oral design reports. -- Materials-handling equipment - design and costs. -- Reactor equipment - design and costs. -- Heat-transfer equipment design and costs. -- Separation equipment - design and costs.
Summary: The fifth edition of "Plant Design and Economics for Chemical Engineers" is a major revision of the popular fourth edition. There are new chapters on process synthesis, computer-aided design, and design of chemical reactors. A traditionally strong feature of the text, economic analysis, has been revamped and updated. Another strength, equipment sizing and cost estimation, is updated and expanded as well. These improvements also reflect changes in equipment availability. The numerous real examples throughout the book include computer or hand solutions, and often both. There is a new increased emphasis on computer use in design, economic evaluation, and optimization. Concepts, strategies, and approaches to computer use are featured. These concepts are not tied to particular software programs and therefore apply to wide a range of applications software, of both current and future release. This widely used text is now more useful than ever, providing a "one-stop" guide to chemical process design and evaluation.
