More than ever, effective design is the focal point of sound chemical engineering. Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, Third 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. Realistic from start to finish, this book moves readers beyond classroom exercises into open-ended, real-world process problem solving. The authors introduce integrated techniques for every facet of the discipline, from finance to operations, new plant design to existing process optimisation. This fully updated Third Edition presents entirely new problems at the end of every chapter. It also adds extensive coverage of batch process design, including realistic examples of equipment sizing for batch sequencing; batch scheduling for multi-product plants; improving production via intermediate storage and parallel equipment; and new optimisation techniques specifically for batch processes. Coverage includes bull; Conceptualising and analysing chemical process: flow diagrams, tracing, process conditions, and more bull; Chemical process economics: analysing capital and manufacturing costs, and predicting or assessing profitability bull; Synthesizing and optimising chemical processing: experience-based principles, BFD/PFD, simulations, and more bull; Analysing process performance via I/O models, performance curves, and other tools bull; Process troubleshooting and 'debottlenecking' bull; Chemical engineering design and society: ethics, professionalism, health, safety, and new 'green engineering' techniques bull; Participating successfully in chemical engineering design teams Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, Third Edition draws on nearly 35 years of innovative chemical engineering instruction at West Virginia University.
