Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes 3rd Edition
GAIN A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF CHEMICAL PROCESSES Material that’s presented in a very clear and accessible way…frequent use of examples…case studies based on commercial processes…a CD-ROM with instructional tutorials, a powerful equation solver, and a visual encyclopedia of chemical process equipment…These are just a few of the features of this text that help provide a realistic, informative introduction to chemical processes. Key Features of the Third Edition Nearly every section in the third edition has been revised to provide increased clarity. Hundreds of new and revised problems and new case studies cover a broader spectrum of chemical engineering applications. Some problems require spreadsheeting, and others call for using equation-solving software. The INTERACTIVE CHEMICAL PROCESS PRINCIPLES (ICPP) CD-ROM provides an active learning environment. With this software, students respond to questions and receive immediate feedback, explore variations in process parameters and se e the effects of their changes on process operations, and more.

“Plastics Additives and Testing” is a practical book for engineers and operators and discusses both inorganic and organic chemicals that are widely used as additives in plastics processing operations.
It is common practice today to use analytical techniques to improve plastics processing. Because it is critically important to manufacture quality products, a reasonable balance must be drawn between control requirements and parameters for improved processing method with respect to plastics additives. This book serves to implement this balance in the manufacturing line.
Written by a successful, international consultant with an excellent publishing track record, it combines plastics additives, testing and quality control and is a valuable and critical book for engineers and operators to have when performing their tasks.

Control of Biological and Drug-Delivery Systems for Chemical, Biomedical, and Pharmaceutical Engineering
This book combines knowledge of process dynamics and basic control theory to analyze a range of bioprocesses and drug-release devices. The book addresses issues and solves problems that dominate both fields (i.e., biological sciences and release devices.) Many of the textbooks written on this topic usually focus on specific topics (e.g., systems biology, control of fermentation processes), as a result, undergraduate chemical engineering students are not exposed to a range of diversified problems in biological sciences. This book builds on the new focus of providing problems in the biological area. In addition, unified theories and step-by-step problem solving procedures are provided. A unique feature of the book is the application of control theory to analyze controlled-release devices.
An expected outcome of the proposed perspective is an enrichment of fundamental concepts and the development of an application-oriented environment. For example pharmaceutical companies, specializing in the production of therapeutics using biological processes, are the first beneficiaries. A qualified labor force, with competencies in process analysis, design and control will assure that the target quantity and quality of the end-products are met and in line with federal and state regulations.

The leading integrated chemical process design guide: Now with extensive new coverage and more process designs More than ever, effective design is the focal point of sound chemical engineering. Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, Fourth Edition, presents design as a creative process that integrates both the big picture and the small details-and knows which to stress when, and why. Realistic from start to finish, this updated edition moves readers beyond classroom exercises into open-ended, real-world process problem solving. The authors introduce integrated techniques for every facet of the discipline, from finance to operations, new plant design to existing process optimization. This fourth edition adds new chapters introducing dynamic process simulation; advanced concepts in steady-state simulation; extensive coverage of thermodynamics packages for modeling processes containing electrolyte solutions and solids; and a concise introduction to logic control. “What You Have Learned” summaries have been added to each chapter, and the text’s organization has been refined for greater clarity. Coverage Includes * Conceptualization and analysis: flow diagrams, batch processing, tracing, process conditions, and product design strategies * Economic analysis: capital and manufacturing costs, financial calculations, and profitability analysis * Synthesis and optimization: principles, PFD synthesis, simulation techniques, top-down and bottom-up optimization, pinch technology, and software-based control * Advanced steady-state simulation: goals, models, solution strategies, and sensitivity and optimization studies * Dynamic simulation: goals, development, solution methods, algorithms, and solvers * Performance analysis: I/O models, tools, performance curves, reactor performance, troubleshooting, and “debottlenecking” * Societal impact: ethics, professionalism, health, safety, environmental issues, and green engineering * Interpersonal and communication skills: improving teamwork and group effectiveness This title draws on more than fifty years of innovative chemical engineering instruction at West Virginia University and the University of Nevada, Reno. It includes suggested curricula for single-semester and year-long design courses, case studies and practical design projects, current equipment cost data, and extensive preliminary design information that can be used as the starting point for more detailed analyses. About the CD-Rom and Web Site The CD contains the newest version of CAPCOST, a powerful tool for evaluating fixed capital investment, full process economics, and profitability. The heat exchanger network software, HENSAD, is also included. The CD also contains an additional appendix presenting preliminary design information for fifteen key chemical processes, including four new to this edition: shift reaction; acid-gas removal via physical solvent; H2S removal from a gas stream using the Claus process; and coal gasification. The CD also includes six additional projects, plus chapters on outcomes assessment, written and oral communications, and a written report case study. Sixty additional projects and twenty-four more problems are available at www.che.cemr.wvu.edu/publications/projects.
