Release Date: 2011-09-30
Genre: Technology & Engineering

'Chemical engineering is the field of applied science that employs physical, chemical, and biological rate processes for the betterment of humanity'. This opening sentence of Chapter 1 has been the underlying paradigm of chemical engineering. Chemical Engineering: An Introduction is designed to enable the student to explore the activities in which a modern chemical engineer is involved by focusing on mass and energy balances in liquid-phase processes. Problems explored include the design of a feedback level controller, membrane separation, hemodialysis, optimal design of a process with chemical reaction and separation, washout in a bioreactor, kinetic and mass transfer limits in a two-phase reactor, and the use of the membrane reactor to overcome equilibrium limits on conversion. Mathematics is employed as a language at the most elementary level. Professor Morton M. Denn incorporates design meaningfully; the design and analysis problems are realistic in format and scope.

Chemical Engineering Design and Analysis

Author: T. Michael Duncan
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521639565
Release Date: 1998-08-28
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Students taking their first chemical engineering course plunge into the 'nuts and bolts' of mass and energy balances and often miss the broad view of what chemical engineers do. This 1998 text offers a well-paced introduction to chemical engineering. Students are first introduced to the fundamental steps in design and three methods of analysis: mathematical modeling, graphical methods, and dimensional analysis. The book then describes how to apply engineering skills, such as how to simplify calculations through assumptions and approximations; how to verify calculations, significant figures, spreadsheets, graphing (standard, semi-log and log-log); and how to use data maps. In addition, the book teaches engineering skills through the design and analysis of chemical processes and process units in order to assess product quality, economics, safety, and environmental impact. This text will help undergraduate students in chemical engineering develop engineering skills early in their studies. Lecturer's solution manual available from the publisher on request.

Polymer Melt Processing

Author: Morton M. Denn
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781316583142
Release Date: 2008-08-04
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Most of the shaping in the manufacture of polymeric objects is carried out in the melt state, as it is a substantial part of the physical property development. Melt processing involves an interplay between fluid mechanics and heat transfer in rheologically complex liquids, and taken as a whole it is a nice example of the importance of coupled transport processes. This book is on the underlying foundations of polymer melt processing, which can be derived from relatively straightforward ideas in fluid mechanics and heat transfer; the level is that of an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course, and the material can serve as the text for a course in polymer processing or for a second course in transport processes.

Sensory Analysis of Foods of Animal Origin

Author: Leo M.L. Nollet
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781439847961
Release Date: 2010-09-15
Genre: Technology & Engineering

When it comes to food selection, consumers are very reliant on their senses. No matter the date on a carton of milk or the seal on the package of meat, how that milk smells and the color of that meat are just as critical as any official factors. And when it comes to meal time, all the senses must conspire to agree that taste, smell, color, and texture are appealing. Fidel Toldrá was named 2010 American Meat Science Association Distinguished Research Award recipient Compiled by two of the most esteemed researchers in the food science industry, Leo M.L. Nollet and Fidel Toldrá, Sensory Analysis of Foods of Animal Origin identifies and quantifies the quality attributes to help those in the industry understand the importance of perceived sensory quality. This book is divided into four parts: meat; processed meats and poultry; fish and seafood products; and milk and dairy products. In all four parts, the authors – Describe the analysis of color and texture of the different foods of animal origin, as well as recent advances in texture measurement Discuss techniques for sampling and identifying volatile compounds Detail and quantify a number of sensory aspects including descriptors, perception, and aroma Include subjective quality index methods that have recently been developed Each chapter starts with a discussion of the parameter in question, and as necessary, sample preparation methods are reviewed in depth. This is followed by a discussion and assessment of the sensory qualities, or a detailed overview of different detection methods. Finally, a brief summary covers the presence of these parameters in different end products, regions, and countries. With all the chapters written by experts in their fields, only the most recent techniques and related literature is included.

Thermische Verfahrenstechnik

Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783540280521
Release Date: 2006-03-30
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Die Neuauflage hält am bewährten und anerkannten Konzept der Vorauflage fest: ein Grundlagenwerk zum Einsatz in der universitären Lehre, aber vor allem ein Nachschlagewerk für den Beruf zum tieferen Verständnis der verfahrenstechnischen Zusammenhänge. Gegenüber der Vorauflage wurde das Werk allerdings erheblich erweitert sowie durch aktuelle Forschungsergebnisse und ein Kapitel zur konzeptuellen Prozessentwicklung ergänzt. Die Grundverfahren werden auf der Basis der Thermodynamik, der Wärme- und Stoffübertragung und der Fluiddynamik übergreifend dargestellt. Damit erhält der Praktiker erste Informationen über die Auswahl, die Auslegung und den Betrieb von Apparaten. Nach einer komprimierten Darstellung wichtiger Grundlagen werden u.a. das Destillieren, die Rektifikation, die Absorption, die Kristallisation und die Adsorption behandelt. Es wird aufgezeigt, wie sich grundlagenorientierte Berechnungsansätze für fluiddynamische und kinetische Vorgänge in bekannten und neuen Apparaten finden lassen.

Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781316299906
Release Date: 2015-04-20
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Addressing all aspects of the design, modeling and simulation of chromatographic processes, this result-oriented primer provides a practical guide to all the necessary approaches, methodologies and tools. Beginning with key definitions and concepts, it builds up from the most simple to the most complex situations, including multicomponent systems, non-uniform velocity profiles, bed instability, particle size distributions, and the influence of complex environments on chromatographic process design. In addition to covering classical approaches, it introduces efficient tools for investigating chromatographic processes, such as the 'Russian-Lego' approach for linear systems, phenomenological models, and specific shortcuts for deriving the key properties of industrial processes. With an emphasis on real-world problems and applications, step-by step modeling design guidelines, and detailed exercises for self-assessment, this is a must-have guide for practitioners and researchers working in chemical, biochemical, food and pharmaceutical engineering.

Chemical Product Design

Author: E. L. Cussler
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781139497916
Release Date: 2011-05-12
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The chemical industry is changing, going beyond commodity chemicals to a palette of higher value added products. This groundbreaking book, now revised and expanded, documents this change and shows how to meet the challenges implied. Presenting a four-step design process - needs, ideas, selection, manufacture - the authors supply readers with a simple design template that can be applied to a wide variety of products. Four new chapters on commodities, devices, molecules/drugs and microstructures show how this template can be applied to products including oxygen for emphysema patients, pharmaceuticals like taxol, dietary supplements like lutein, and beverages which are more satisfying. For different groups of products the authors supply both strategies for design and summaries of relevant science. Economic analysis is expanded, emphasizing the importance of speed-to-market, selling ideas to investors and an expectation of limited time in the market. Extra examples, homework problems and a solutions manual are available.
