Gain a better understanding of chemical processes.
This text will provide you with a realistic, informative introduction to chemical processes. This 3rd edition has been completely revised to provide you with increased clarity, including:
Hundreds of new and revised problems and new case studies cover a broader spectrum of chemical engineering applications.
Guidance for solving problems that require spread sheeting and equation-solving software.
A CD-ROM that provides an active learning environment. With this software, students respond to questions and receive immediate feedback, explore variations in process parameters and see the effect of their changes on process operations, and more.
2005 Edition icons in the text margin let you know when it's most helpful to use the ICPP CD-ROM and the Student Workbook.
"...features hundreds of new case studies and problems... systematic treatment of degree-of-freedom analysis of chemical processes...improved discussion of all vapor-liquid , liquid-liquid & solid-liquid equilibrium concepts."
A textbook for an introductory stoichiometry course within a chemical engineering curriculum, preparing students to formulate and solve material and energy balances on chemical process systems and laying the foundation for subsequent courses in thermodynamics, unit operations, kinetics, and process dynamics. Felder (North Carolina State U.) and Rousseau (Georgia Institute of Technology) also introduce the engineering approach to solving process-related problems. The third edition is revised from the 1986 second to reflect the wider fields chemical engineers are now entering<-->such as environmental engineering, biotechnology, and microelectronics<-->and changes in the types of software used.

Richard M. Felder is Hoechst Celanses Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering at North Carolina State University. He has authored or coauthored over 200 papers on chemical process engineering and engineering education and presented hundreds of seminars, workshops, and short courses in both categories to industrial and research institutions and universities throughout the United States and abroad. Since 1991 he has co-directed the National Effective Teaching Institute Under the auspices of the Ameican Society for Engineering Education. He is a Fellow of the American Society for Engineering Education. Many of his publications can be found at www.ncsu.edu/effective_teaching
Ronald W. Rousseau Hoechst the Cecil J. "Pete" Silas Endowed chair and also chairs the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In addition to his Commitment to undergraduate education, he has been an active researcher in the field of separation science and technology, focusing his attention on crystallization science and technology among other topics. He is a Fellow of both AIChE and the American Association for the Advancement of Science and has served as chair of the Council for Chemical Research, Member of the Board of Directors of AIChE, and chair of the AIChE publication Committee.
Drs. Felder and Rousseau have won numerous awards for their contributions to engineering research and education, and were recipients of the 2002 Warren K. Lewis Award for Contributions to Chemical Engineering Education from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
I'm a chem engineer 7 years out of school. I still use this book one way or another about once every two weeks. I can't say the same thing about any of the other textbooks I used in school. If there is one title from your coursework you should keep, this is it.
