9780120085231: Process Synthesis, Volume 23 (Advances in Chemical Engineering) (Vol 23)

Volume 23 of Advances in Chemical Engineering covers the active field of process synthesis. There are currently three prevelant approaches to complex process synthesis strategies: heuristics-based selection, geometric representation, and optimization methods. This volume addresses a variety of these synthesis strategies for process subsystems, representing only a sample of the state-of-the-art of process synthesis research. The five papers in this volume address quite different process subsystems and application areas but still combine basic concepts related to a systematic approach. All five of the papers develop successful synthesis methods for their respective cutting-edge applications. As a group, the papers serve to highlight many unresolved issues in process synthesis and also provide guidelines for future research.

  • Considers current approaches to process synthesis problems
  • Examines areas of possible future research
  • Articles written by leading experts in the field

He was honored with the FPBE Division Award at AIChE in 1997.

Review:

"By scanning the progression of topics from the earliest volumes to the present one, it is possible to gain a perspective on the growth and evolution of chemical engineering from artful practice to rigorous science. During these past two decades the field has become one of the premier applied sciences by virtue of its vigor and scope. The contents of this latest volume provide strong evidence for this evolution...The scope of this volume is impressive...It is a scope that is reflective of the current state of chemical engineering science." --JOURNAL OF AMERICAN CHEMISTRY SOCIETY

"A great deal of care has gone into the preparation of the contributions, and these prove to be both readable and informative...I strongly commendthis book to all involved in teaching or research in chemical engineering." --CHEMICAL ENGINEERING SCIENCE
