Intended for a higher level chemical engineering design course, this book brings together all the fundamentals and shows how to put them to use in the real world. This highly regarded text is known for its broad coverage of both design and economics, its attention to the details of cost estimating, its inclusion of up-to-date cost data, and its application of economic and design theory to real chemical engineering processes and operations. While retaining the level, scope, and emphasis on practical aspects of design of the previous edition, the fourth edition has been updated to reflect changes in costs and the increased importance of computer usage and safety-environmental considerations.
