In Chapter 21, techniques for evaluating the performance of individual unit operations were introduced. The use of performance curves was illustrated. Performance curves describe the behavior of a unit over a wide range of inputs. The techniques developed in Chapter 20 were also used to obtain results for a single set of input conditions, which is one point on a performance curve.

In a chemical process, units do not operate in isolation. If the input to one unit is changed, its output changes. However, this output is usually the input to another unit. In certain cases, what is usually ...
