DescriptionCongratulations to Dr. Daniel Lewin, recipient of the 2010 Himmelblau Award for his Wiley software product ?Using Process Simulators?.
A principal objective of this textbook is to describe and model modern strategies for the design of chemical products and processes, with an emphasis on a systematic approach. This third edition expands upon the strategies for product design, beginning with the need for a project charter, followed by the creation of an innovation map in which potential new technologies are linked to consumer needs. Then, it focuses on the Stage-GateTM Product-Development Process (SGPDP) for the design of basic, industrial, and configured consumer chemical products. Six new case studies have been added to illustrate these product design strategies.

- Case studies illustrate product design strategies.
- This text and the Using Process Simulators In Chemical Engineering courseware that accompanies it support a teaching and learning approach that blend modern computational approaches with simple heuristics. The Using Process Simulators courseware uses voice, video, and animation to introduce new users of the steady-state simulators to the specifics of two of the most widely used process simulation programs, ASPEN PLUS and HYSYS.Plant. Also, video segments show portions of a petrochemical complex in operation, including distillation towers, heat exchangers, pumps and compressors, and chemical reactors. The courseware includes files that contain the solutions for more than 60 examples using either ASPEN PLUS or HYSYS.Plant, as well as problems solved using GAMS, an optimization package, and the MATLAB scripts in Chapter 12.
- Appropriate for both undergraduate courses in product and process design.
