UNIT OPERATIONS OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING PDF
UNIT OPERATIONS OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING PDF By McCabe And Smith
A revised edition of a text on unit operations of chemical engineering, this work contains updated and new material reflecting in part the broadening of the chemical engineering profession into new areas such as food processing, electronics and biochemical applications. As in previous editions, separate chapters are devoted to each of the four principle unit operations – fluid mechanics, heat transfer, equilibrium stages and mass transfer, and operations involving particulate solids – and includes coverage of adsorption, absorption and membrane separation. There is also detailed treatment of solids-handling operations and solid-liquid separations. In this fifth edition, SI units are given greater emphasis and some two-third of the end-of-chapter problems have been revised. In addition, there is new material on membrane separations, flow measurement, dispersion operations, supercritical extraction, pressure-swing adsorption and sedimentation. Also available is a solutions manual.
Chemical engineering has to do with industrial processes in which raw materials
are changed or separated into useful products. The chemical engineer must
develop, design, and engineer both the complete process and the equipment used;
choose the proper raw materials; operate the plants efficiently, safely, and economically;
and see to it that products meet the requirements set by the customers.
Chemical engineering is both an art and a science. Whenever science helps the
engineer to solve a problem, science should be used. When, as is usually the case,
science does not give a complete answer, it is necessary to use experience and
judgment. The professional stature of an engineer depends on skill in utilizing all
sources of information to reach practical solutions to processing problems.
The variety of processes and industries that call for the services of chemical
engineers is enormous. Products of concern to chemical engineers range from
commodity chemicals like sulfuric acid and chlorine to high-technology items like
polymeric lithographic supports for the electronics industry, high-strength composite
materials, and genetically modified biochemical agents. The processes described
in standard treatises on chemical technology and the process industries
give a good idea of the field of chemical engineering, as does the 1988 report on
the profession by the National Research Council.
Because of the variety and complexity of modern processes, it is not
practicable to cover the entire subject matter of chemical engineering under a
single head. The field is divided into convenient, but arbitrary, sectors. This text
covers that portion of chemical engineering known as the unit operations.
