Chemical Engineering for Non-Chemical Engineers

March, 2017

This book covers the basic concepts of chemical engineering in an easy-to-understand way, enabling non-chemical engineers to better interface with and understand chemical engineers and the fundamental concepts of chemical processing, design, and operation. Coverage includes differences between laboratory and industrial scale practice of chemistry, basic chemical reaction equations, basics of fluid flow and transport systems, how separation processes purify products, and approaches to controlling chemical processes, including the safety aspects.
