This introduction to chemical processes lays the foundation for a chemical engineering curriculum. It shows beginning students how to apply engineering techniques to the solution of process-related problems by breaking each problem down into individual component parts, defining the relationships between them, and reuniting them in a single solution. Providing detailed practical examples with every problem, and self-test questions at the end of each chapter, it uses predominantly SI units in its coverage of theoretical components of an engineering calculation, processes and process variables, fundamentals of material balances, single and multiphase systems, energy and energy balances, balances on nonreactive processes, and more.

There are legends that swirl around about plants that were designed entirely by using this book alone. If you learn this book cover to cover you have about 80% of chemical engineering understood. Read full review
