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: Evolution and generation of different process configurationsEstimating capital,investment, manufacturing costs, and other economic factorsSynthesis and optimization of chemical processesPerformance analysis of existing processes and equipment Environmental concerns, green engineering, engineering ethics, and health and safetyWritten and oral communications and teamwork"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 andpreliminary design information for four chemical processes.About the CD-ROMThe CD-ROM contains a heavily revised version of CAPCOST, now in the form of a spreadsheet template, which is used for evaluating fixed capital investme
