Product and Process Design Principles: Synthesis, Analysis and Design, 4th Edition
May 2016, ©2017
The new 4th edition of Seider’s Product and Process Design Principles: Synthesis, Analysis and Design covers content for process design courses in the chemical engineering curriculum, showing how process design and product design are inter-linked and why studying the two is important for modern applications. A principal objective of this new edition is to describe modern strategies for the design of chemical products and processes, with an emphasis on a systematic approach. This fourth edition presents two parallel tracks: (1) product design, and (2) process design, with an emphasis on process design. Process design instructors can show easily how product designs lead to new chemical processes. Alternatively, product design can be taught in a separate course subsequent to the process design course.
