Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
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.
