Chemical Thermodynamics for Process Simulation
2. Edition April 2019
XXXII, 770 Pages, Softcover
Now in its 2nd edition: The only book to apply thermodynamics to real process engineering problems. Numerous solved examples, as well as estimation methods for thermophysical properties and much more is presented. Also of interest for engineers in chemical companies.
The only textbook that applies thermodynamics to real-world process engineering problems
This must-read for advanced students and professionals alike is the first book to demonstrate how chemical thermodynamics work in the real world by applying them to actual engineering examples. It also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the particular models and procedures, and explains the most important models that are applied in process industry. All the topics are illustrated with examples that are closely related to practical process simulation problems. At the end of each chapter, additional calculation examples are given to enable readers to extend their comprehension.
Chemical Thermodynamics for Process Simulation instructs on the behavior of fluids for pure fluids, describing the main types of equations of state and their abilities. It discusses the various quantities of interest in process simulation, their correlation, and prediction in detail. Chapters look at the important terms for the description of the thermodynamics of mixtures; the most important models and routes for phase equilibrium calculation; models which are applicable to a wide variety of non-electrolyte systems; membrane processes; polymer thermodynamics; enthalpy of reaction; chemical equilibria, and more.
-Explains thermodynamic fundamentals used in process simulation with solved examples
-Includes new chapters about modern measurement techniques, retrograde condensation, and simultaneous description of chemical equilibrium
-Comprises numerous solved examples, which simplify the understanding of the often complex calculation procedures, and discusses advantages and disadvantages of models and procedures
-Includes estimation methods for thermophysical properties and phase equilibria thermodynamics of alternative separation processes
-Supplemented with MathCAD-sheets and DDBST programs for readers to reproduce the examples
Chemical Thermodynamics for Process Simulation is an ideal resource for those working in the fields of process development, process synthesis, or process optimization, and an excellent book for students in the engineering sciences.
