Chemical Engineering : The Essential Reference Hardback


A practical, concise guide to chemical engineering principles and applicationsChemical Engineering: The Essential Reference is the condensed but authoritative chemical engineering reference, boiled down to principles and hands-on skills needed to solve real-world problems.

Emphasizing a pragmatic approach, the book delivers critical content in a convenient format and presents on-the-job topics of importance to the chemical engineer of tomorrow-OM&I (operation, maintenance, and inspection) procedures, nanotechnology, how to purchase equipment, legal considerations, the need for a second language and for oral and written communication skills, and ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) topics for practicing engineers.

This is an indispensable resource for anyone working as a chemical engineer or planning to enter the field.

Praise for Chemical Engineering: The Essential Reference:"Current and relevant...over a dozen topics not normally addressed...invaluable to my work as a consultant and educator." -Kumar Ganesan, Professor and Department Head, Department of Environmental Engineering,Montana Tech of the University of Montana"A much-needed and unique book, tough not to like...loaded with numerous illustrative examples...a book that looks to the future and, for that reason alone, will be of great interest to practicing engineers." -Anthony Buonicore, Principal, Buonicore PartnersCoverage includes: Basic calculations and key tablesProcess variablesNumerical methods and optimizationOral and written communicationSecond language(s)Chemical engineering processesStoichiometryThermodynamicsFluid flowHeat transferMass transfer operationsMembrane technologyChemical reactorsProcess controlProcess designBiochemical technologyMedical applicationsLegal considerationsPurchasing equipmentOperation, maintenance, and inspection (OM&I) proceduresEnergy managementWater managementNanotechnologyProject managementEnvironment managementHealth, safety, and accident managementProbability and statisticsEconomics and financeEthicsOpen-ended problems
