About this book

Introduction

Chemical Engineering: Introductory Aspects examines the foundations of the distinct subject of chemical engineering and in so doing clarifies some of the links between it and pre-university ('A' level) science. Chemical Engineering has expanded into all processing industries and this broader approach, together with environmental considerations are reflected in this up-to-date text. At the same time a thorough introduction to the subjects of Process Design, Fluid Flow, Heat Transfer, Separation Processes, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Process Safety and Control is provided. The book also explores the work done by chemical engineers, illustrates the benefits to society that have resulted and so shows the links between industry and the everyday products around us.
