Research and Markets: Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing" to their offering.

The problems that chemical engineers face today can no longer be answered with programs written on a case-by-case basis; computers have revolutionized the way chemical engineers design and analyze processes - whether designing large units to make polyethylene or a small microreactor used to detect biological agents. This book helps identify the types of computer programs needed to solve various chemical engineering problems and ensure that the problems have been solved correctly. Each chapter contains a description of the physical problem in both general terms and mathematically, thorough step-by-step instructions, numerous examples, and comprehensive explanations for each problem and program.

Key Topics Covered:


1. Introduction

2. Equations of State

3. Vapor-liquid Equilibria

4. Chemical Reaction Equilibria

5. Mass Balances with Recycle Streams

6. Thermodynamics and Simulation of Mass Transfer Equipment

7. Process Simulation

8. Chemical Reactors

9. Transport Process in One Dimension

10. Fluid Flow in Two and Three Dimensions

11. Heat and Mass Transfer in Two and Three Dimensions
