The fifth edition of "Plant Design and Economics for Chemical Engineers" is a major revision of the popular fourth edition. There are new chapters on process synthesis, computer-aided design, and design of chemical reactors. A traditionally strong feature of the text, economic analysis, has been revamped and updated. Another strength, equipment sizing and cost estimation, is updated and expanded as well. These improvements also reflect changes in equipment availability. The numerous real examples throughout the book include computer or hand solutions, and often both. There is a new increased emphasis on computer use in design, economic evaluation, and optimization. Concepts, strategies, and approaches to computer use are featured. These concepts are not tied to particular software programs and therefore apply to wide a range of applications software, of both current and future release. This widely used text is now more useful than ever, providing a "one-stop" guide to chemical process design and evaluation.

Intended for a higher level chemical engineering design course, this book brings together all the fundamentals and shows how to put them to use in the real world. This highly regarded text is known for its broad coverage of both design and economics, its attention to the details of cost estimating, its inclusion of up-to-date cost data, and its application of economic and design theory to real chemical engineering processes and operations. While retaining the level, scope, and emphasis on practical aspects of design of the previous edition, the fourth edition has been updated to reflect changes in costs and the increased importance of computer usage and safety-environmental considerations.About the Author:
