Process Dynamics : Modeling, Analysis and Simulation (98 Edition)


Process Dynamics : Modeling, Analysis and Simulation (98 Edition) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Modeling, analysis and simulation of chemical processes is increasingly central to the work of chemical engineers — but it is rarely covered in depth in process design guides. This book fills that gap. It is a comprehensive introduction to process modeling and dynamics using the powerful MATLAB and SIMULINK analysis tools.Start by understanding the rationale for process modeling, and why it is becoming so critically important. Then, review all the fundamental numerical techniques involved, including algebraic equations and numerical integration. Walk through linear systems analysis in detail, learning how to linearize non-linear models, solve linear nth Order ODE models, work with Laplace transforms and transfer function analysis, and much more. Finally, learn how to use today's increasingly-important non-linear techniques, such as phase plane analysis, quadratic maps bifurcation behavior, and analysis of chaotic behavior via Lorenz equations.For all chemical engineers, from Ph.D. professionals to non-degreed technicians and students.

Book News Annotation:

Going beyond steady-state chemical processes and an emphasis on process control, Bequette (chemical engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) utilizes computers to simulate the real-world dynamic nature of such processes. Learning modules geared for a two- semester sequence augment the coverage of process modeling, numerical techniques, linear, and nonlinear systems analysis. Ten modules introduce MATLAB and SIMULINK software, and review matrix algebra, linear regression, stirred tank heaters, absorption, various types of reactors, and ideal binary distillation.

The aim of this work is to provide an introduction to the modelling, analysis and simulation of the dynamic behaviour of chemical processes. The use of MATLAB and SIMULINK ebables students to simulate the dynamic behaviour of common chemical processes on a PC or Macintosh.
