Summary

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.

New to This Edition :

  • A new chapter is offered on computer-aided design, geared to the newer design paradigms, and software is incorporated throughout the text.
  • Equipment selection and costing sections are updated and more complete. These sections include easy-to-use equipment applicability tables and costing charts.
  • Economic and optimization sections featuring embedded spreadsheets for investment, product-cost estimation, and profitability analysis have been modernized and updated.
  • A web page that supports the text contains updates, supplements, and equipment costing information.
  • SI units are now the primary units.
  • Cost estimation and process economics evaluation software.
