Transport Processes and Separation Process Principles 4th Edition
Appropriate for one-year transport phenomena (also called transport processes) and separation processes course. First semester covers fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer; second semester covers separation process principles (includes unit operations). The title of this Fourth Edition has been changed from Transport Processes and Unit Operations to Transport Processes and Separation Process Principles (Includes Unit Operations). This was done because the term Unit Operations has been largely superseded by the term Separation Processes which better reflects the present modern nomenclature being used. The main objectives and the format of the Fourth Edition remain the same. The sections on momentum transfer have been greatly expanded, especially in the sections on fluidized beds, flow meters, mixing, and non-Newtonian fluids. Material has been added to the chapter on mass transfer. The chapters on absorption, distillation, and liquid-liquid extraction have also been enlarged. More new material has been added to the sections on ion exchange and crystallization. The chapter on membrane separation processes has been greatly expanded especially for gas-membrane theory.
The third edition of “Process Systems Analysis and Control” retains the excellent style for which this book is well known: short, clearly written chapters. The book is an ideal teaching and learning tool for a semester-long undergraduate chemical engineering course in process dynamics and control. It avoids the encyclopedic approach that many texts on this topic fall into. The third edition is updated to include new topics, including model predictive control and digital control, that are introduced at a level appropriate for the undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum. Computer examples using MATLAB and Simulink have been introduced throughout the book to supplement and enhance standard hand-solved examples. These packages allow the easy construction of block diagrams and quick analysis of control concepts to enable the student to explore “what-if” type problems that would be much more difficult and time consuming by hand. Many new homework problems have been added to each chapter. The new problems are a mixture of hand-solved and computer exercises. One-page capsule summaries have been added to the end of each chapter to help students review and study the most important concepts in each chapter.
Coal Production and Processing Technology provides uniquely comprehensive coverage of the latest coal technologies used in everything from mining to greenhouse gas mitigation. Featuring contributions from experts in industry and academia, this book: * Discusses coal geology, characterization, beneficiation, combustion, coking, gasification, and liquefaction * Explores coalbed methane drilling, excavatability, surface production, strata control, and longwall production * Tackles financial, safety, and environmental issues, including coal company valuations, mine emergency preparedness, and carbon management Capturing state-of-the-art knowledge from different facets of the coal chain, Coal Production and Processing Technology offers a holistic view of today’s coal industry as well as a look at future trends.

Armed with this book, chemical engineers will have a collection of modern strategies for the design of chemical products and processes. It emphasizes a systematic approach and integrates product design more thoroughly throughout the chapters. New case studies on process design are included to make the concepts more relevant. The social aspects and economics of product design are introduced, and the Stage-Gate Product Development Process is explored in parallel tracks for several chemical products. The accompanying CD-ROM also provides chemical engineers with numerous examples of the simulator input and output, with frame-by-frame instructions to discuss the nature of the models provided for the processing units.
