Chemical Process Equipment Design

Book Description

This is the Rough Cut version of the printed book.

Chemical Process Equipment Design complements leading chemical engineering texts by providing concise, focused coverage of equipment design that they rarely include. Filling a major gap in undergraduate chemical engineering education, it presents relevant design equations, shows how to analyze the operation of existing equipment, offers a practical methodology for designing new equipment, and provides software programs for solving common design and performance problems. Theoretical derivations are avoided in favor of working equations, practical computational strategies, and multiple real-world examples. Topics covered include: fluid mechanics, heat transfer, separations, reactors, and other aspects of creating and utilizing chemical engineering equipment.
