An integrative approach to continuous improvement in chemical engineering.
Process design skills are the focal point of sound chemical engineering. In this second edition of Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, the authors present design as a creative process that integrates the big picture and the small details-and relies on knowing which to stress, and why. These techniques are applied to every aspect of the discipline, from the conceptual design of a plant to improving an existing process, and more.
Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes moves chemical engineering students beyond neatly delineated classroom exercises and into the world of solving the open-ended process problems they will see in practice. The authors accomplish this by emphasizing design synthesis of the entire process?from equipment sizing to optimization, from finances to operation. Coverage includes:
Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes represents over 30 years of chemical engineering teaching at West Virginia University. Included are suggested curricula for both single-semester and year-long design courses, case studies and design projects with practical applications, and appendices with current equipment cost data and preliminary design information for four chemical processes.About the CD-ROM
The CD-ROM contains a heavily revised version of CAPCOST, now in the form of a spreadsheet template, which is used for evaluating fixed capital investments and full process economics. The HENSAD application allows the user to construct temperature interval, cascade, and temperature-enthalpy diagrams; estimate the optimal approach temperature; and design heat exchanger networks. Also included are a virtual plant tour of a simple chemical process and additional student design projects.About the Author:
Richard Turton, P.E., has taught the senior design course at WVU for the past 16 years. Prior to this, he spent 5 years in the design and construction industry. His main interests are in design education and fluid bed coating and particulate processing.
Richard C. Bailie has over 10 years of experience in process evaluation, pilot plant operation, plant start-up, and industrial consulting. He also ran his own chemical company. He is a professor emeritus at WVU, having taught chemical engineering design for over 20 years.
Wallace B. Whiting, P.E., is currently professor and chair of chemical engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno. He has been involved in the practice and teaching of chemical process design for 22 years.
Joseph A. Shaeiwitz has been involved in the senior design sequence and the unique sophomore- and junior-level integrated design projects at WVU for 14 years. His interests include design education and outcomes assessment.
