Enables chemical engineering students to bridge theory andpractice Integrating scientific principles with practical engineeringexperience, this text enables readers to master the fundamentals ofchemical processing and apply their knowledge of such topics asmaterial and energy balances, transport phenomena, reactor design,and separations across a broad range of chemical industries. Theauthor skillfully guides readers step by step through the executionof both chemical process analysis and equipment design. Principles of Chemical Engineering Practice is dividedinto two sections: the Macroscopic View and the Microscopic View.The Macroscopic View examines equipment design and behavior fromthe vantage point of inlet and outlet conditions. The MicroscopicView is focused on the equipment interior resulting from conditionsprevailing at the equipment boundaries. As readers progress throughthe text, they'll learn to master such chemical engineeringoperations and equipment as: Separators to divide a mixture into parts with desirableconcentrations Reactors to produce chemicals with needed properties Pressure changers to create favorable equilibrium and rateconditions Temperature changers and heat exchangers to regulate and changethe temperature of process streams Throughout the book, the author sets forth examples that referto a detailed simulation of a process for the manufacture ofacrylic acid that provides a unifying thread for equipment sizingin context. The manufacture of hexyl glucoside provides a threadfor process design and synthesis. Presenting basic thermodynamics, Principles of ChemicalEngineering Practice enables students in chemical engineeringand related disciplines to master and apply the fundamentals and toproceed to more advanced studies in chemical engineering.

Introduction to Chemical Processes: Principles, Analysis, Synthesis enhances student understanding of the connection between the chemistry and the process. Users will find strong coverage of chemistry, gain a solid understanding of what chemical processes do (convert raw materials into useful products using energy and other resources), and learn about the ways in which chemical engineers make decisions and balance constraints to come up with new processes and products. The author presents material and energy balances as tools to achieve a real goal: workable, economical, and safe chemical processes and products. Loaded with intriguing pedagogy, this text is essential to a students first course in Chemical Engineering. Additional resources intended to guide users are also available as package options, including the Engineering Equation Solver (EES) software, ChemSkill Builder and the well-known Perry's Chemical Engineering Handbook.
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

Physical Principles of Chemical Engineering covers the significant advancements in the understanding of the physical principles of chemical engineering. This book is composed of 12 chapters that describe chemical unit processes through analogy with the unit of operations of chemical engineering. The introductory chapters survey the concept and principles of mass and energy balances, as well as the application of entropy. The next chapters deal with the probability and kinetic theories of gases, the physical aspects of solids, the different dispersed systems, and the principles and application of fluid dynamics. Other chapters discuss the property dimension and model theory; heat, mass, and momentum transfer; and the characteristics of multiphase flow processes. The final chapters review the model of rheological bodies, the molecular-kinetic interpretations of rheological behavior, and the principles of reaction kinetics.

This book is an outgrowth of the author’s teaching experience of a course on Introduction to Chemical Engineering to the first-year chemical engineering students of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. The book serves to introduce the students to the role of a chemical engineer in society. In addition to the classical industries, the role of chemical engineers in several esoteric areas such as semiconductor processing and biomedical engineering is discussed. Besides highlighting the principles and processes of chemical engineering, the book shows how chemical engineering concepts from the basic sciences and economics are used to seek solutions to engineering problems. The book is rich in examples of innovative solutions found to problems faced in chemical industry. It includes a wide spectrum of topics, selected from the industrial interactions of the author. It encourages the student to see the similarities in the concepts which govern apparently dissimilar examples. It introduces various concepts, using both physical and mathematical bases, to facilitate the understanding of difficult processes such as the scale-up process. The book contains several case studies on safety, ethics and environ-mental issues in chemical process industries.
