Industrial Chemical Process Analysis and Design Excerpt :

Industrial Chemical Process Analysis and Design uses chemical engineering principles to explain the transformation of basic raw materials into major chemical products. The book discusses traditional processes to create products like nitric acid, sulphuric acid, ammonia, and methanol, as well as more novel products like bioethanol and biodiesel. Historical perspectives show how current chemical processes have developed over years or even decades to improve their yields, from the discovery of the chemical reaction or physico-chemical principle to the industrial process needed to yield commercial quantities. Starting with an introduction to process design, optimization, and safety, Martin then provides stand-alone chapters—in a case study fashion—for commercially important chemical production processes. Computational software tools like MATLAB®, Excel, and Chemcad are used throughout to aid process analysis. Integrates principles of chemical engineering, unit operations, and chemical reactor engineering to understand process synthesis and analysis Combines traditional computation and modern software tools to compare different solutions for the same problem Includes historical perspectives and traces the improving efficiencies of commercially important chemical production processes Features worked examples and end-of-chapter problems with solutions to show the application of concepts discussed in the text

Developing An Industrial Chemical Process Excerpt :

The development and implementation of a new chemical process involves much more than chemistry, materials, and equipment. It is a very complex endeavor and its success depends on the effective interactions and organization of professionals in many different positions - scientists, chemical engineers, managers, attorneys, economists, and specialists. Developing An Industrial Chemical Process: An Integrated Approach is the first professional reference to examine the actual process development practices of industrial corporations, research organizations, engineering companies and universities. Backed by 45 years of experience within R&D, design, and management positions in various countries, the author presents his know-how for better and faster results and fewer start-up problems. While most books on chemical processes concentrate only on the scientific/technical aspect, this book also deals with the range of people and "real life" issues involved. Developing An Industrial Chemical Process serves as a "how to" guide for the effective management of process development procedures. The issues start with the "why" and "how" concerns of the executives and project managers and proceed with the actual implementation by professionals, each in his/her particular role. The author addresses the working organization and the different activities involved in a process development program, including the implementation, design, construction and start-up of a new plant. Finally, each chapter provides a short summary of the key issues along with suggestions for further reading. This book can help you handle the problems normally associated with the development and implementation of a new process and reduce the time and resources that you and your organization spend on this critical activity.

The Industrial Practice of Chemical Process Engineering Excerpt :

This volume of case studies serves as a guide and reference manual for the application of engineering science fundamentals in the solution of chemical development and process design problems. The introductory chapter describes a set of general principles relevant to the analysis of industrial design problems. An extensive bibliography is presented which provides a valuable theoretical and practical basis for proper understanding of the case studies.The six case studies present an opportunity for the detailed application of the broad principles outlined in the introduction. These cases vary widely both in regard to the engineering operations analyzed and with respect to the complexity and detail of the required solution. Three of the analyses result in computer programs which may be utilized for a more comprehensive design evaluation and for student discussion in a "computerized classroom."Each case represents a useful approach to a general class of design studies, and each has been reviewed by an industrial or academic expert familiar with current commercial practice. Therefore, even though the reproduction of specific industrial designs has not been attempted, each solution has been compared and contrasted with the realities of modern industrial operations.Various approaches to the financial evaluation of a chemical project are described. These are presented in some detail since material of this type is frequently absent from academic curricula.

Analysis and Synthesis of Chemical Process Systems Excerpt :

The methods used by chemists and chemical engineers for the conception, design and operation of chemical process systems have undergone significant changes in the last 10 years. The most important of modern computer-aided techniques are process analysis and process system synthesis, both of which are closely related. The first part of the book presents the principles of model building, simulation and model application. On the basis of an appropriate set of hierarchical levels of chemical systems, the general strategy of analysis by deterministic and statistical methods is treated. The second part deals with process system synthesis beginning with reaction path analysis. One of the major features of this part are new methods for the synthesis of reactor networks, separation sequences, heat-exchanger systems and entire chemical process systems by a combined procedure of heuristic rules and fuzzy set algorithms. This procedure, which is known as knowledge engineering, is an efficient combination of human creativity and theoretically based knowledge. This book, which is illustrated by examples, should prove extremely useful as a text for a senior/graduate course for students of chemistry and chemical engineering and will also be invaluable for chemists and chemical engineers in research and industry, and specialists dealing with the analysis and synthesis of process systems.
