Chemical Process Safety
The Leading Guide To Process Safety Now Extensively Updated For Today’s Processes And Systems As chemical processes have grown more complex, so have the safety systems required to prevent accidents. Chemical Process Safety, Third Edition, offers students and practitioners a more fundamental understanding of safety and the application required to safely design and manage today’s sophisticated processes. The third edition continues the definitive standard of the previous editions. The content has been extensively updated to today’s techniques and procedures, and two new chapters have been added. A new chapter on chemical reactivity provides the information necessary to identify, characterize, control, and manage reactive chemical hazards. A new chapter on safety procedures and designs includes new content on safely management, and specific procedures including hot work permits, lock-tag-try, and vessel entry.Subjects Include * Inherently safer design * Toxicology and industrial hygiene * Toxic release and dispersion models * Fires and explosions, and how to prevent them * Reliefs and relief sizing * Hazard identification * Risk assessment * Safe designs and procedures * Case histories Chemical Process Safety, Third Edition, is an ideal reference for professionals. It can be used for both graduate and undergraduate instruction. This edition contains more than 480 end-of-chapter problems. A solutions manual is available for instructors.
For undergraduate Mechanics of Materials courses in Mechanical, Civil, and Aerospace Engineering departments. Containing Hibbeler’s hallmark student-oriented features, this text is in four-color with a photorealistic art program designed to help students visualize difficult concepts. A clear, concise writing style and more examples than any other text further contribute to students’ ability to master the material. This edition can be packaged with MasteringEngineering, an innovative online program created to emulate the instructor’s office-hour environment, guiding students through engineering concepts from Mechanics of Materials with self-paced individualized coaching. Teaching and Learning Experience To provide a better teaching and learning experience, for both instructors and students, this program will provide: * Individualized Coaching: Available with MasteringEngineering, an online program that emulates the instructor’s office-hour environment using self-paced individualized coaching. * Problem Solving: A large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stress practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, varying levels of difficulty, and problems that involve solution by computer. * Visualization: This text is in four-color with a photorealistic art program designed to help students visualize difficult concepts. * Review and Student Support: A thorough end of chapter review provides students with a concise tool for reviewing chapter contents. * Accuracy: The accuracy of the text and problem solutions has been thoroughly checked by four other parties.
Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design is intended for students beginning the study of mechanical engineering design. Students will find that the text inherently directs them into familiarity with both the basics of design decisions and the standards of industrial components. It combines the straightforward focus on fundamentals that instructors have come to expect, with a modern emphasis on design and new applications. The tenth edition maintains the well-designed approach that has made this book the standard in machine design for nearly 50 years. Specific statistical material pertinent to the 10th edition was retained and integrated within the sections that utilize statistics. A few examples are: The mathematical relationship between the design factor and reliability is covered in the first chapter of Introduction to Mechanical Design where the design factor and reliability are defined and discussed. In Sec. 2-2, The Statistical Significance of Material Properties, is totally self-contained. The statistical Weibull distribution is necessary in the chapter on Rolling-Contact Bearings and is completely contained within this chapter.
