9780128002421: An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design

An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design explains how professional engineers carry out process design in industry. It covers plant layout, the use of spreadsheet programmes and key drawings as aids to design; subjects which are usually learned on the job rather than in education. The design tools discussed within the book will help you to produce tighter plant designs, saving you time. Computer tools discussed include Hysys and AutoCAD; tools to assist the creative process include "What If Analysis" features, statistical plugins and visual basic for more complex problems.

Prof. Moran has pulled together over 20 years' experience in process design to create a foundational book that is ideal for those who are new to process design. It is fully supported with worked examples and case studies in order to assist learning. The integration of process design with process safety is also covered.  This book is compliant with both professional practice and the IChemE degree accreditation guidelines. The information contained in this book is usually provided on the job by mentors; no other book is available with the same coverage.



. How to use computer tools and simulation techniques to deliver a process design that meets both the business and safety case
. Just the theoretical fundamentals and their implementation in practice through this book's integrated approach
. To communicate what your proposed process design project is expected to deliver to managers

Product Description:

An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design is a guide to process plant design for both students and professional engineers.

The book covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programmes and key drawings produced by professional engineers as aids to design; subjects which are usually learned on the job rather than in education. You will learn how to produce smarter plant design through the use of computer tools, including Excel and AutoCAD, "What If Analysis", statistical tools, and Visual Basic for more complex problems. The book also includes a wealth of selection tables, covering the key aspects of professional plant design which engineering students and early-career engineers tend to find most challenging.

Professor Moran draws on over 20 years' experience in process design to create an essential foundational book ideal for those who are new to process design, compliant with both professional practice and the IChemE degree accreditation guidelines.

  • Explains how to deliver a process design that meets both business and safety criteria
  • Covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programmes and key drawings as aids to design
  • Includes a comprehensive set of selection tables, covering those aspects of professional plant design which early-career designers find most challenging 

From the Author:

The approaches taught in university as "Process Design" have very little to do with how professional engineers actually design process plants.The understanding in universities of the nature and basis of engineering is fundamentally flawed. Most academics think that engineering is justapplied science and mathematics.

An Applied Guide to Process andPlant Design addresses the shortcomings of chemical engineeringeducation in this area, allowing current students and recent graduatesto understand what process plant design is really about. It is the bookwhich I wish I had been able to buy when I was learning to be a processengineer.
