Free sample

Covering the important task of the scale-up of processes from the laboratory to the production scale, this easily comprehensible and transparent book is divided into two sections. The first part details the theoretical principles, introducing the subject for readers without a profound prior knowledge of mathematics. It discusses the fundamentals of dimensional analysis, the treatment of temperature-dependent and rheological material values and scale-up where model systems or not available or only partly similar. All this is illustrated by 20 real-world examples, while 25 exercises plus solutions new to this edition practice and monitor learning.
The second part presents the individual basic operations and covers the fields of mechanical, thermal, and chemical process engineering with respect to dimensional analysis and scale-up. The rules for scale-up are given and discussed for each operation. Other additions to this second edition are dimensional analysis of pelleting processes, and a historical overview of dimensional analysis and modeling, while all the chapters have been updated to take the latest literature into account.
Written by a specialist with more than 40 years of experience in the industry, this book is specifically aimed at students as well as practicing engineers, chemists and process engineers already working in the field.

About the author

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Marko Zlokarnik studied chemical technology and obtained his Ph.D. in process engineering from RWTH Aachen University and was active in process engineering R & D at Bayer AG, Leverkusen, for 35 years. His work involved reaction apparatus design for chemical production facilities, which, apart from elucidation of reaction kinetics, also brought fundamental work on mixing technology and modelling with it. In the 70s, he developed an especially efficient biological wastewater treatment (Bayer tower biology with flotative removal of activated sludge). From 1970 to 1990, he taught similarity theory at the Technical University of Clausthal-Zellerfeld, then held the Bayer Foundation Chair of Chemical Technology at the University of Cologne. He served as chairman of the VDI-GVC committee on biological process engineering from 1979 to 1988, and in the course of his career has published 60 books, 20 patents, and 5 books, receiving the Otto Bayer Gold Medal and the VDI Honorary Medal for his work.

Denis Lamoureux
Christians throughout history have believed that God reveals himself both through Scripture and nature. The metaphor of God’s Two Books is often used to represent these two divine revelations.

The Book of God’s Words is the Bible. Scripture reveals inerrant spiritual truths. These include, the God of Christianity is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the creation is very good, and only humans are created in the Image of God (Gen. 1:1, 27, 31).

The Book of God’s Works is the physical world. Nature declares God’s glory, eternal power, and divine nature (Ps. 19:1; Rom. 1:20). Through the gift of science, our Creator has blessed us with the ability to explore and understand the structure, operation, and origin of his creation.

Together God’s Two Books offer us a complementary divine revelation of who created the world and how he created it.

A majority of Americans view science and religion as being in conflict, according to the Pew Research Center. Christians and non-Christians alike share this view, yet if this perceived conflict misrepresents the relationship between modern science and Christian faith, then it is both unhelpful and unnecessary today.

In Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes, theologian and scientist Denis O. Lamoureux reviews several options for embracing biblical Christianity and findings of science, including biological evolution. Holding to a high view of Scripture alongside an expert appreciation for scientific discovery, Lamoureux further outlines a way to understand passages referring to the natural world in the Bible and also demonstrates how modern science can point toward God.

Lamoureux shares his own story along the way, recounting struggles many readers will relate to on his journey toward PhDs in both theology and biology and a fruitful relationship between the two.

Topics in this book include:

A biblical model of intelligent design in nature based on Psalm 19 and Romans 1.Examination of the ancient science in Scripture, such as a flat earth and 3-tier universe.Comparison of different Christian views on origins—young earth creation, progressive creation (old earth creation), and evolutionary creation.Criticisms of the atheistic interpretation of evolution held by Richard Dawkins and his belief that intelligent design is merely an illusion.Galileo’s peaceful relationship between Scripture and nature, including his view that “the intention of the Holy Spirit [in the Bible] is to teach us how one goes to heaven, and not how heaven goes.”Darwin’s religious beliefs and evidence of the impact that intelligent design had on him throughout his life, along with his claim, “It seems to me absurd to doubt that a man may be an ardent Theist [personal God] and an evolutionist.”

Believers wanting to honor God’s Two Books—Scripture and Nature—faithfully and without conflict will find an excellent introduction in Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes.

Step-by-step instructions enable chemical engineers to master key software programs and solve complex problems

Today, both students and professionals in chemical engineering must solve increasingly complex problems dealing with refineries, fuel cells, microreactors, and pharmaceutical plants, to name a few. With this book as their guide, readers learn to solve these problems using their computers and Excel, MATLAB, Aspen Plus, and COMSOL Multiphysics. Moreover, they learn how to check their solutions and validate their results to make sure they have solved the problems correctly.

Now in its Second Edition, Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing is based on the author’s firsthand teaching experience. As a result, the emphasis is on problem solving. Simple introductions help readers become conversant with each program and then tackle a broad range of problems in chemical engineering, including:

Equations of state Chemical reaction equilibria Mass balances with recycle streams Thermodynamics and simulation of mass transfer equipment Process simulation Fluid flow in two and three dimensions

All the chapters contain clear instructions, figures, and examples to guide readers through all the programs and types of chemical engineering problems. Problems at the end of each chapter, ranging from simple to difficult, allow readers to gradually build their skills, whether they solve the problems themselves or in teams. In addition, the book’s accompanying website lists the core principles learned from each problem, both from a chemical engineering and a computational perspective.

Covering a broad range of disciplines and problems within chemical engineering, Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing is recommended for both undergraduate and graduate students as well as practicing engineers who want to know how to choose the right computer software program and tackle almost any chemical engineering problem.

Das Thema dieses Buches ist die ï¿1⁄2bertragung von Verfahren aus dem Labor- bzw. dem Technikumsmaï¿1⁄2stab in den industriellen Maï¿1⁄2stab einer Produktionsanlage. Die einzige zuverlï¿1⁄2ssige Methode dazu basiert auf der Darstellung von Versuchsergebnissen im zutreffenden dimensionsanalytischen Raum, der sich als maï¿1⁄2stabsinvariant erweist.
Das Buch ist in zwei Teile gegliedert. In der ersten Hï¿1⁄2lfte werden die theoretischen Grundlagen detailliert vorgestellt, um auch Lesern ohne vertiefte mathematische Vorkenntnisse dieses Themengebiet nï¿1⁄2herzubringen. Diskutiert werden die Grundlagen der Dimensionsanalyse, die Behandlung von temperaturabhï¿1⁄2ngigen und von rheologischen Stoffwerten und die Modellï¿1⁄2bertragung bei nicht-Verfï¿1⁄2gbarkeit von Modell-Stoffsystemen, sowie bei partieller ï¿1⁄2hnlichkeit. All dies wird dem Leser anhand von 20 modernen Beispielen aus der heutigen verfahrenstechnischen Praxis illustriert und mit 25 in dieser Auflage neu hinzugekommenen ï¿1⁄2bungsaufgaben aktiv erarbeitet und anhand der Lï¿1⁄2sungen kontrolliert.
Im zweiten Teil des Buches werden die einzelnen verfahrenstechnischen Grundoperationen aus den Bereichen mechanische, thermische und chemische Verfahrenstechnik von der Warte der Dimensionsanalyse und der Modellï¿1⁄2bertragung beispielhaft behandelt und es werden fï¿1⁄2r jede Operation die Maï¿1⁄2stabsï¿1⁄2bertragungsregeln vorgestellt und diskutiert.
Das vorliegende Buch wendet sich dementsprechend an Studenten wie auch bereits auf dem Gebiet tï¿1⁄2tige Ingenieure, Chemiker und Verfahrenstechniker.
