5-0 out of 5 stars fluid mechanics ,transprtation of fluids
it is the best books i have ever read in my semester ofchemical engineering. the topic i like the most, is transportation offluids .this book is recommended by my professor. the matter of turbulent flow and laminar flow is just fantastic.

thank you!

1-0 out of 5 stars This book is inadequte
I feel that this book is inadequte for students and professionals alike. It does not explain well how systems act in real life situations, like most academia books

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for students yet too general for professionals
I work in the chemical operations sector. I will highly recommend this book for 3rd or 4rth year future chemical engineers. It contains viable information on many units that they will just have to know about. However, I will not recommend it for working operation engineers. It is too general for us, it doesn't problem shoot units such as pumps and compressors. I don't think that I have much use for this book, specially that I own the Perry's Handbook.

3-0 out of 5 stars This book is an annotated index to Perry's
Warning: This is not a textbook. Basically, they took out some of the stuff from Perry's and rewrote it more carefully and filled in some of the details. In general, this book is hard to read, missing important things, and burdened with unimportant things. It really does no justice to the quality and quantity of amazing insight inside the head of Peter Harriott (from whom I've taken classes). I can't deny that it makes an awesome reference book, but woe to any class that depends on this book.

Book Description

”Chemistry in the hands of Engineers!” This mantra, initiated and developed largely in the research programs of academic chemical engineers over the last few decades, has now made its way into the core undergraduate curriculum in the form of a new Chemical Reaction Engineering textbook by Cal Tech’s Mark E. Davis and U VA’s Robert J. Davis…”-Michael T. Klein, Rutgers University

This book is an introduction to the quantitative treatment of chemical reaction engineering. It is appropriate for a one-semester undergraduate (or first-year graduate)course. The text provides a balanced approach: first, it covers both homogeneous and heterogeneous reacting systems; second, it covers both chemical reaction engineering and chemical reactor engineering.

Here's what reviewers have to say:

“The Davis/Davis book really brings out the strong coupling between chemical reactions and reactor design concepts in a pedagogical fashion.”-Michael S. Wong, Rice University

“Great use of chemical reactions as teaching examples” -Michael S. Wong, Rice University

“The examples, illustrations, and vignettes given in the text are very well done, and are of either fundamental or practical interest.”-David F. Cox, Virginia Tech

“A primary motivation to use this text is the arrangement of the introductory material on kinetics.The initial description of reactions and kinetics in Davis/Davis appears prior to the introduction of reactor material balances.” -David F. Cox, Virginia Tech

“Concise development and discussion of material”-Michael S. Wong, Rice University ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone in the chemical engineering curriculum.
If you are dealing with chemical processes in any way, YOU NEED THIS BOOK!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Intro to Chemical Engineering
This text is a concise, well-written, introductory text regarding mass, mole, and energy balances. Though the book does lack a little as far as its discourse on thermodynamics. There are a few typos, but that should not distract the reader from learning chemical engineering principles. Also, this book is a wonderful resource because of its extensive thermophysical properties tables and other important data. I have used these tables in fluids, kinetics, and heat/mass transfer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good book for ChemE's
I used this book in my 2nd year at U of Cincinnati for my Material and Energy Balance class. This is a very good book for ChemE's just starting out, and it helped me a lot(I'm currently 4th year). The example problems in the book are very good at explaining concepts, and the book is very well laid out in an easy to understand way. If you don't need this book for a class, it is still a very handy reference for many ChemE applications.

1-0 out of 5 stars this book blows
this book is terrible, even for a science textbook! it is difficult to understand and is inconsistent with its notation. it is only made worse by its absence of a solutions guide, ambiguosly stated questions, and abundance of errata. a total waste of money for non chem-engineers.

this book [inhales with force] and any class which requires its use is bound to [inhale with extreme force]. sorry.

2-0 out of 5 stars NOT VERY SELF-EXPLANATORY FOR THE UNDERGRADUATE
Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes was the textbook I used in my very first engineering class many years ago. I was then a Chemical Engineering major, because I wanted an intellectual challenge; my course of study was then, and presumably still is, regarded as the toughest of all the academic fields in my school. With this work of Felder and Rousseau as the textbook that introduced so many of us into the world of chemical engineering, the reputation of the difficulty of this major was well deserved.

I graduated with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, and instead of exploring the world of engineering well beyond my college years, I decided to pursue a different route by becoming a mathematics instructor. I also have a Master's in the field of Mathematics Education, and my added exposure to this realm has served me quite well.

Though I have left the world of chemical engineering well behind me, I just thought that I might reflect upon a portion of my past and chip in my few paragraphs pertaining to this reference.Over the course of time, being an educator has taught me that in order to get students to understand the content of the material, you have to communicate and express the ideas quite clearly. This textbook is not exactly successful in that department.

For instance, the sections referring to unit conversions were presented rather haphazardly. My knowledge of unit conversions has expanded considerably since my undergraduate days, but back then, I did not really know how to follow what the authors were trying to express. For instance, the approach to converting the unit ratio centimeters per square second to kilometers per square year is a procedure that should be well laid out in several steps. Instead, in this book, you have this type of unit conversion expressed in one line, and as opposed to having the steps displayed in an orderly manner, all that you really get is a shortcut full of exponential gibberish.

Looking back at it now, I think that unless one comes from a background that demands mathematical rigor, I honestly do not see how anyone who uses this textbook can really obtain the insight needed to progress to intermediate engineering courses and graduate.

All in all, this is not a good textbook for the full-time college student who has other topics to deal with. For me, too much time was wasted trying to translate this material into a context that would be readable for the engineering novice. There was too much material crammed into each chapter, and the pain of trying to find a clue to get from one level of mastery to the next could only be magnified by the pedantry often expressed by the impatient professor. ...

Book Description

The successful development, operation, and maintenance of a process analyzer is a multi-disciplinary effort. It involves production chemists, analytical chemists, process engineers, and plant operatives. Accordingly, a team of authors was culled from many specialties of both the industrial and academic sectors for Spectroscopy in Process Analysis to addresses the attributes, requirements, and applications of spectroscopic techniques using a variety of novel approaches.

The ten articles focus on unique techniques - UV-visible, near-infrared, mid-infrared, mass, and Raman spectroscopies, and more - as each applies to spectroscopic disciplines. The authors present magnetic resonance techniques, chemometrics, and considerations of sampling and engineering. Supplementing more general works on process analytical chemistry, the volume concentrates on the current state of spectroscopic technology and how to most usefully apply it in process analysis.

Cost and time effectiveness are increasingly important to process spectroscopy. Whether your goal is quality assurance or monitor and control, proper use of current knowledge is critical for success. Spectroscopy in Process Analysis provides the valuable information you need to optimize the use of the latest technological advances. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars This is Not Perry's
The book starts out with some refinery flow sheets for making 'grasoline' from 'californing' crude.Process control is simple enough.The next section on fluid flow uses non-standard equations which are overly complex.The same goes for heat transfer.Fair does a good job on distillation.Reaction engineering is completly omited from this text.

4-0 out of 5 stars The most practical chemical engineering reference book
For the working chemical process design engineer, this is the best reference I've come across.It tells you how to pick equipment and generally how to determine equipment sizes.As a design or procurement engineer you work with vendors to make final equipment selection, but this book gives you what you need to know before you start talking to the vendors.It bridges the gap between theory you can get from textbooks and detailed applications you can get from sales literature.I'm surprised this book hasn't caught on as a standard in the chemical engineering profession ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Only good if you want to do simulations
As for using this book for design - I would say that it is marginal at best. If you happen to use Aspen and do everything using a process simulator, this book is pretty good. From and economics/costing standpoint, this book doesn't even come close to Peters & Timmerhaus. Does not have much of a discussion on material selection - a definite drawback. It does include a nice appendix on design heuristics that draws from Walas and other sources.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fair good
This book is really good for process engineers. I don't know if there is a different edition of the one I have but there's little about CHEMCAD, the book is too focused on other simulation softwares and if you don't have one of those; solving some proposed problems gets really difficult and frustating. Packed with heuriustics on process and equipment design.Excellent choice!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book in the market about chemical process synthesis
Covering the main topics in chemical process synthesis an design, this book present a broad view of the state of the art techniques and methods to achieve an optimum design.

With this work, Dr. Seider, et al, have given an invaluable contribution to the teaching of this field, presenting a logical an principle based approach for the "basic plant design", in contrast to the experience based traditional view.

Focusing on the extensive use of commercial process simulators, the book presents an overview of the conceptual basis of process simulation and optimization,but not its mathematical detail, giving the engineer the opportunity to focus on the process instead of focus on the mathematical and computational problem.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truely a text on Automatic Process Control
Note the word 'truely'. Just the section on Installed Flow Characteristics on control valves is enough to worth buying this book. The writers solved the mystery on why an inherent "Equal Percentage" control valve behaves "Linear" when installed; and why an inherent "Linear" control valve behaves "Quick Opening" when installed in most chemical processes being controlled (should factors such as the over-sized factor, the fraction of the dynamic pressure taken by the control valve, and the rangeability of the control valve are overlooked). The writters did it by vigorously deriving the Installed Characteristics from the universal definition of "Cv" (first introduced by Masoneillan in industry, now adopted by ISA), fluid mechanics, and simple algebra, from which the installed gain at various percent-opening of most control valves is derivable analytically by math. Excellent job done. I have used this book since mid 1980's in my career as an Instrument Engineer and recently I used it in writing engineering specifications for control valves. For 15 years before mid 1980's, a book like this has been in my search list. While control theory can be easily found in many texts, unique relevant work experience of writters cannot. Whether you are a Chemical Engineer or not, if your work is related to Automatic Process Control, I will recommend you to buy this book. Before it gets sold out, I am going to buy the lattest edition tomorrow since I believe this book will be useful for at least the next 50 years from now in any process control industry.

5-0 out of 5 stars revisión de un profesor de la asignatura
llevo trabajando el texto desde 1998,obteniendo muy buenos resultados en la enseñanza del control de procesos. en particular creo que la obra presenta un excelente equilibrio entre la teoría y la práctica. adicionalmente los problemas enfrentan al estudiante con situaciones muy cercanas a las que encontraran en su vida profesional. a nivel de sugerencia para proximas ediciones, considero debe ser incluido el tema de los grados de libertad para control de plantas completas.

4-0 out of 5 stars A former student of Dr. Smith
When it comes to automatic controls, Dr. Smith is incredibly knowledgable. Unfortunately, this does not always come through in this book. The book suffers from lack of sufficient worked examples to assist the reader in gaining competency in this area. At times, the theory takes leaps that leave the reader wondering how they did that. As with most engineering texts, once the reader fills in the missing steps the concepts become clear and logical. Overall, this is a worthwhile text from which the subject can be learned. ...

Book Description

This book will provide a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to organic process research and development in the pharmaceutical, fine
chemical, and agricultural chemical industries. Process R&D describes the steps taken, following synthesis and evaluation, to bring key
compounds to market in a cost-effective manner. More people are being hired for work in this area as increasing numbers of drug candidates are
identified through combinatorial chemistry and high-throughput screening. The book is directed to industrial (primarily organic) chemists, and
academicians (particularly those involved in a growing number of start-up companies) and students who need insight into industrial process R&D. Current books do not describe hands-on, step-by-step, approaches to solving process development problems, including route, reagent,
and solvent selection; optimising catalytic reactions; chiral syntheses; and "green chemistry." "Practical Process Research and Development" will be a valuable resource for researchers, managers, and graduate students.

* Provides insights into generating rugged, practical, cost-effective processes for the chemical preparation of "small molecules"
* Breaks down process optimization into route, reagent and solvent selection, development of reaction conditions, workup, crystallizations and more
* Includes over 100 tips for rapid process development
* Presents guidelines for implementing and troubleshooting processes

The book is quite common on instrumentation engineers' desk but I recommend it also to chemical engineers involved in Startup of chemical plants and to engineers dealing with the design of continuous plants.

4-0 out of 5 stars Difficult to Use, But, Very Enlightening
I met Dr. Shinskey once through a seminar sponsored by a college classmate. His ready explanations made me want to read his book. I tried. I struggled through the first 200 pages and gave up. Since then, I often referred back to it and find it enlightening in solving difficult control problems. However, I cannot use his solutions directly because the examples are difficult to follow. Equations are all very nice but should relate to physical data in some way. Starting with instrument measurement and leading to the practical solution is how authors such as Dr. Levenspiel of Oregon explain difficult problems. That, is how I would improve this text. As for the problems in each chapter, forget it. The information provided was confusing; I seldom found the right answer even after reviewing his solution. I suggest a solution book with the book itself. The problems drove me nuts. ... Read more

Book Description

This resource provides both novice and experienced technologist with the technical background necessary to choose sample conditioning system components that will allow the process analyzer system to function reliably with minimal maintenance.
The conditioned process sample presented to the process analyzer should be of similar quality to the calibration material used to zero and span the analyzer. Filling a long-standing void in the process field, this book addresses the system concept of Process Analyzer Sample-Conditioning Technology in light of the critical importance of delivering a representative sample of the process stream to the process analyzer. Offering detailed descriptions of the equipment necessary to prepare process samples, and listings of two or more vendors (when available) for equipment reviewed, Process Analyzer Sample-Conditioning System Technology discusses:

-The importance of a "truly representative sample"
-Sample probes, transfer lines, coolers, and pumps
-Sample transfer flow calculations for sizing of lines and system components
-Particulate filters, gas-liquid and liquid-liquid separation devices
-Sample pressure measurement and control
-Enclosures and walk-in shelters, their electrical hazard ratings and climate control systems

With extensive system and component examples–including what worked and what didn’t–Process Analyzer Sample-Conditioning System Technology gives the new technologist a basic source of design parameters and performance-proven components as well as providing the experienced professional with a valuable reference resource to complement his or her experience. ...

Book Description

This text offers a modern view of process control in the context of today's technology.It provides the standard material in a coherent presentation and uses a notation that is more consistent with the research literature in process control.Topics that are unique include a unified approach to model representations, process model formation and process identification, multivariable control, statistical quality control, and model-based control.This book is designed to be used as an introductory text for undergraduate courses in process dynamics and control.In addition to chemical engineering courses, the text would also be suitable for such courses taught in mechanical, nuclear, industrial, and metallurgical engineering departments.

The material is organized so that modern concepts are presented to the student but details of the most advanced material are left to later chapters.The text material has been developed, refined, and classroom tested over the last 10-15 years at the University of Wisconsin and more recently at the University of Delaware.As part of the course at Wisconsin, a laboratory has been developed to allow the students hands-on experience with measurement instruments, real time computers, and experimental process dynamics and control problems. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The best primer in process control for chemical engineers
This book was the text for my undergraduate control course. It gave me a better background in process control than the other books I purchased to supplement my learning. I highly recommend this book over others such as Marlin.

Ogunnaike and Ray covers subjects such as root locus methods, tunings using frequency methods, and digital control.

Dr. Ogunnaike is also an excellent lecturer, so if you would like to take the course directly from him enroll at the University of Delaware - its well worth it.

I also recommend Essentials of Process Control by William Luyben to provide a good qualitative background in process control.

5-0 out of 5 stars A practical introduction to process control
This book provides an excellent, practical introduction to process control from the view of Chemical Engineers.

The book begins by considering the development of dynamic process models. It covers practical questions such as which state variable (eg. height) should be controlled by which manipulated variable (eg. flowrate) by discussing the physical behaviour of the system, rather than the approach commonly used by control engineers of an electronics background.

The advantage of the book is that it then goes on to discuss tools such as Nyquist diagrams and Bode plots, and how they can be used to characterise a system's behaviour, in a simple and clear manner. It then addresses essential issues such as controller tuning.

Finally, the book briefly introduces advanced control topics, such as Kalman filters and Model based control, in simple terms which would give an interested reader a running start into these fields.

My only regret is that I have lost my personal copy! ... Read more

Book Description

This is the first in-depth presentation in book form of current analytical methods for optimal design, selection and evaluation of instrumentation for process plants. The presentation is clear, concise and systematic-providing process engineers with a valuable tool for improving quality, costs, safety, loss prevention, and production accounting. From Chapter 1 Introduction "Instrumentation is needed in process plants to obtain data that are essential to perform several activities. Among the most important are control, the assessment of the quality of products, production accounting… and the detection of failures related to safety. In addition, certain parameters than cannot be measured directly, such as heat exchanger, fouling or column deficiencies, are of interest. Finally, new techniques, such as on-line optimization, require the construction of reliable computer models for which the estimation of process parameters is essential. "This book concentrates on the tasks of determining the optimal set of measured variables and selecting the accuracy and reliability of the corresponding instruments. The goal is to obtain sufficiency accurate and reliable estimates of variables of interest while filtering bad data due to possible instrument malfunction. An additional goal is to observe and diagnose single and multiple process faults."From the Preface "There is a vast amount of literature devoted to the selection and good maintenance of instruments. This literature covers the selection of the right instrument for a particular range and system, but only after the desired accuracy and reliability of measurement have been established. Little has been written on how to systematically determine the right accuracy and reliability needed when selecting an instrument, much less how much redundancy is needed for a particular system. The key variables that needed estimation come from control requirements, as well as monitoring needs for safety, quality control and production accounting. These are the starting points of the design methodology. This book concentrates on determining the optimal accuracy and reliability of instruments and their location. To determine this, certain desired properties of the system of instruments are used as constraints while the cost is minimized. These properties, among others are variable observability, system reliability and precision of certain variables. "This book is not a textbook. Rather it is intended to be an organized collection of the most relevant work in this area…. It has been written with the intention of making it readable by engineers with some background in linear algebra, mathematical optimization and graph theory. It is organized so that the complexity of the sensor network design is addressed step by step." The information in this new book serves the needs of chemical and other process engineers involved in instrumentation and control, maintenance, plant operations, process design, process development, quality control, safety, and loss prevention. Illustrations and Tables The text is supplemented with more than 100 flow charts, diagrams and other schematics that illustrate procedures, systems and instrumentation. More than 70 tables provide useful reference data. The AuthorDr. Miguel J. Bagajewicz brings to this new book his extensive experience in design, data management, teaching and writing in the area of process engineering. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology. He is presently Associate Professor, School of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, and Director, Center for Engineering Optimization at the University of Oklahoma. He is the author or co-author of more than 100 journal articles, conference presentations, and reports, and the author of articles on data reconciliation and sensor location in the Instrument Engineers' Handbook, fourth edition. He is a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), and on the executive committee of the Central Oklahoma Chapter. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent presentation of optimization algorithmics
The first chapters deal with economics, really elementary material. However, it is a worthwhile discussion of plant sizing and costing. I liked the later chapters on optimization: HENS, MINLP, scheduling, flexibility in processes, etc. Traditional books on optimization will not help you here because they will not show you how to set up your optimization problem. Systematic Methods does this! The book also contains some discussion of liquid-liquid separations.

As far as content is concerned, the book deserves a 5, but there are problems which reflect its first edition status. The index needs reworking (where is the entry for Fenske's equation?), and there are numerous typographic errors which mar the appearance of the presentation.

The book is not example intensive. The reader is expected to think, and to follow the given example requires paper and pencil, not just casual glances. What should be appreciated is that this book is written by the leaders of the field, and the material is absent in other texts. Much of the text reflects research conducted by the authors.
