  1. Educational Perspective on the Future of Chemical Engineering

    CEP Magazine article, January 2007

    Diversification, globalization, emerging technologies...Times have certainly changed for chemical engineers. But, has the undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum kept pace?

  2. U.S. Research Universities - Globalize or Face Demise?

    CEP Magazine article, January 2007

    Although the effects of globalization have revolutionized corporate behavior, they are only beginning to affect the thinking, and much less the policies, of U.S. research universities. It is something that should be embraced, rather than resisted.

  3. A Simple Approach to Vapor Pressure Prediction

    CEP Magazine article, January 2007

    This method reproduces the vapor pressure predictions of the Soave-Redlich-Kwong and Peng-Robinson equation of state with a simple Antoine equation that uses constants derived from critical properties and the acentric factor.

  4. Improve Catalytic Oxidizer Operation

    CEP Magazine article, January 2007

    A catalyst guard bed is a simple, low-cost modification that reduces catalyst-replacement costs, saves natural gas and cuts energy expenses.

  5. Succeed in the Workplace

    CEP Magazine article, January 2007

    This top 10 list covers things you may never have been told about the real world.

  6. Efficient Technology Evaluation

    CEP Magazine article, February 2007

    To stay competitive in today's economic climate, rapid and effective assessments of new technologies is a must. Requiring a minimal amount of data, this powerful method can effectively evaluate new ideas and research programs at an early stage before incurring any significant expenses.

  7. Apply an Integrated Approach to Catalytic Process Design

    CEP Magazine article, February 2007

    To ensure a practical, efficient and economically viable process, first consider how a successful catalytic reaction system would work, then focus on making a catalyst with the desired characteristics.

  8. Scaling Fixed-Bed Catalyzed Processes

    CEP Magazine article, March 2007

    The new parameter introduced here will yield more meaningful results when a fixed-bed reactor is scaled up for process development or scaled down for plant support.

  9. Modular Mini-Plants: A New Paradigm

    CEP Magazine article, March 2007

    Modular design principles are well known, but have found only niche applications in the Chemical industry. This article outlines an innovative methodology, whereby plant and process design may be conducted in parallel using components with pre-determined specifications and capacities, and...

  10. The G-Value for Agitator Design: Time to Retire It?

    CEP Magazine article, March 2007

    This commonly used number does not correctly address the influence of viscosity, and has no relationship to performance parameters such as fluid velocity and blend time. This article recommends actual measures of agitator performance that should be used instead.
