More About This Textbook


Armed with this book, chemical engineers will have a collectionof modern strategies for the design of chemical products andprocesses. It emphasizes a systematic approach and integratesproduct design more thoroughly throughout the chapters. New casestudies on process design are included to make the concepts morerelevant. The social aspects and economics of product design areintroduced, and the Stage-Gate Product Development Process isexplored in parallel tracks for several chemical products. Theaccompanying registration card grants access to a companion websitethat also provides chemical engineers with numerous examplesof the simulator input and output, with frame-by-frame instructionsto discuss the nature of the models provided for the processingunits.
