(eBook) (PDF) Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, 5th edition
Joseph A. Shaeiwitz,
Wallace B. Whiting
The Leading Integrated Chemical Process Design Guide: With Extensive Coverage of Equipment Design and Other Key Topics More than ever, effective design is the focal point of sound chemical engineering. Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, Fifth Edition, presents design as a creative process that integrates the big-picture and small details, and knows which to stress when and why. Realistic from start to finish, it moves readers beyond classroom exercises into open-ended, real-world problem solving. The authors introduce up-to-date, integrated techniques ranging from finance to operations, and new plant design to existing process optimization. The fifth edition includes updated safety and ethics resources and economic factors indices, as well as an extensive, new section focused on process equipment design and performance, covering equipment design for common unit operations, such as fluid flow, heat transfer, separations, reactors, and more. Conceptualization and analysis: process diagrams, configurations, batch processing, product design, and analyzing existing processesEconomic analysis: estimating fixed capital investment and manufacturing costs, measuring process profitability, and moreSynthesis and optimization: process simulation, thermodynamic models, separation operations, heat integration, steady-state and dynamic process simulators, and process regulationChemical equipment design and performance: a full section of expanded and revamped coverage of designing process equipment and evaluating the performance of current equipmentAdvanced steady-state simulation: goals, models, solution strategies, and sensitivity and optimization resultsDynamic simulation: goals, development, solution methods, algorithms, and solversSocietal impacts: ethics, professionalism, health, safety, environmental issues, and green engineeringInterpersonal and communication skills: working in teams, communicating effectively, and writing better reports This text draws on a combined 55 years of innovative instruction at West Virginia University (WVU) and the University of Nevada, Reno. It includes suggested curricula for one- and two-semester design courses, case studies, projects, equipment cost data, and extensive preliminary design information for jump-starting more detailed analyses.
