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.
Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage, and its problem-solving methodology gives students the best opportunity to learn dynamics. This new edition features a significantly refreshed problem set. Key Features Chapter openers with real-life examples and outlines previewing objectives Careful, step-by-step presentation of lessons Sample problems with the solution laid out in a single page, allowing students to easily see important key problem types Solving Problems on Your Own boxes that prepare students for the problem sets Forty percent of the problems updated from the previous edition
This text book on Hydraulic Machines provides an in-depth coverage of the descriptions, characteristics, underlying principles of working and applications of hydraulic machines. An attempt is made in the book to indicate present trends in practice and analysis in hydraulic turbines and pumps. Applications of various Hydraulic Machines are highlighted.
Fully up-to-date coverage of human factors engineering—plus online access to interactive demonstrations and exercises
Engineering accomplishments can be as spectacular as a moon landing or as mundane as an uneventful drive to the local grocery store. Their failures can be as devastating as a plane crash or a massive oil spill. Over the past decade, psychologists and engineers have made great strides in understanding how humans interact with complex engineered systems—human engineering.
Introduction to Humans in Engineered Systems provides historical context for the discipline and an overview of some of the real-world settings in which human engineering has been successfully applied, including aviation, medicine, computer science, and ground transportation. It presents findings on the nature and variety of human-engineering environments, human capabilities and limitations, and how these factors influence system performance. Important features include:
- Contents organized around the interaction of the human operator with the larger environment to guide the analysis of real-world situations
- A web-based archive of interactive demonstrations, exercises, and links to additional readings and tools applicable to a range of application domains
- Web content customizable for focus on particular areas of study or research
