This 2nd Edition of Coulson & Richardson's classic Chemical Engineering text provides a complete update and revision of Volume 6: An Introduction to Design. It provides a revised and updated introduction to the methodology and procedures for process design and process equipment selection and design for the chemical process and allied industries. It includes material on flow sheeting, piping and instrumentation, mechanical design of equipment, costing and project evaluation, safety and loss prevention. The material on safety and loss prevention and environmental protection has been revised to cover current procedures and legislation. Process integration and the use of heat pumps has been included in the chapter on energy utilisation. Additional material has been added on heat transfer equipment; agitated vessels are now covered and the discussion of fired heaters and plate heat exchangers extended. The appendices have been extended to include a computer program for energy balances, illustrations of equipment specification sheets and heat exchanger tube layout diagrams. This 2nd Edition will continue to provide undergraduate students of chemical engineering, chemical engineers in industry and chemists and mechanical engineers, who have to tackle problems arising in the process industries, with a valuable text on how a complete process is designed and how it must be fitted into the environment.

This new edition follows the original format, which combines a detailed case study - the production of phthalic anhydride - with practical advice and comprehensive background information. Guiding the reader through all major aspects of a chemical engineering design, the text includes both the initial technical and economic feasibility study as well as the detailed design stages. Each aspect of the design is illustrated with material from an award-winning student design project. The book embodies the "learning by doing" approach to design. The student is directed to appropriate information sources and is encouraged to make decisions at each stage of the design process rather than simply following a design method. Thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded, the accompanying text includes developments in important areas and many new references.

Students taking their first chemical engineering course plunge into the 'nuts and bolts' of mass and energy balances and often miss the broad view of what chemical engineers do. This 1998 text offers a well-paced introduction to chemical engineering. Students are first introduced to the fundamental steps in design and three methods of analysis: mathematical modeling, graphical methods, and dimensional analysis. The book then describes how to apply engineering skills, such as how to simplify calculations through assumptions and approximations; how to verify calculations, significant figures, spreadsheets, graphing (standard, semi-log and log-log); and how to use data maps. In addition, the book teaches engineering skills through the design and analysis of chemical processes and process units in order to assess product quality, economics, safety, and environmental impact. This text will help undergraduate students in chemical engineering develop engineering skills early in their studies. Lecturer's solution manual available from the publisher on request.
