Perry's Chemical Engineers' Handbook, 9th Edition

by: Dr. Don W. Green, Dr. Marylee Z. Southard


Abstract: The gold standard for chemical engineering information—from the fundamentals to the state of the art. This industry-standard resource, first published in 1934, has equipped generations of engineers and chemists with vital information, data, and insights. Thoroughly revised to reflect the latest technological advances and processes, Perry's Chemical Engineers' Handbook, Ninth Edition, is indispensable for unsurpassed coverage of every aspect of chemical engineering. New features include coverage of bioreactions and bioprocessing, a practical presentation of thermodynamics fundamentals, and new and updated chemical property data. A must-have for students and professionals in every stage of their careers, Perry's provides all the technical details you'll need in a well-organized format: You'll find comprehensive material on chemical processes, reactor modeling, biological processes, biochemical and membrane separation, process and chemical plant safety, and much more. This fully updated edition covers: • Unit Conversion Factors and Symbols • Physical and Chemical Data (including prediction and correlation of physical properties) • Mathematics (including differential and integral calculus, statistics , optimization) • Thermodynamics • Heat and Mass Transfer • Fluid and Particle Dynamics • Reaction Kinetics • Process Control and Instrumentation • Process Economics • Transport and Storage of Fluids • Heat-Transfer Operations and Equipment • Psychrometry, Evaporative Cooling, and Solids Drying • Distillation • Gas Absorption and Gas-Liquid System Design • Liquid-Liquid Extraction Operations and Equipment • Adsorption and Ion Exchange • Gas-Solid Operations and Equipment • Liquid-Solid Operations and Equipment • Solid-Solid Operations and Equipment • Chemical Reactors • Bio-based Reactions and Processing • Waste Management (including air, wastewater, and solid waste management) • Process Safety (including inherently safer design) • Energy Resources, Conversion, and Utilization • Materials of Construction

Authors:

Dr. Don W. Green is Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Kansas (KU). He holds a B.S. in petroleum engineering from the University of Tulsa, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering from the University of Oklahoma. He is coeditor of the sixth edition of Perry's Chemical Engineers' Handbook and editor of the seventh and eighth editions. He has authored or coauthored 70 refereed publications and over 100 technical meeting presentations, and is coauthor of the first and second editions of the SPE textbook Enhanced Oil Recovery. Dr. Green has won numerous teaching awards at KU, including the Honor for the Outstanding Progressive Educator (HOPE) Award and the Chancellor's Club Career Teaching Award, the highest teaching recognitions awarded at the University. He has also been featured as an outstanding educator in ASEE's journal Chemical Engineering Education. He received the KU School of Engineering Distinguished Engineering Service Award (DESA), and has been designated an Honorary Member of both SPE and AIME and a Fellow of AIChE.

Dr. Marylee Z. Southard is Associate Professor of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Kansas. She holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering from the University of Kansas. Dr. Southard's research deals with small molecule drug formulations, but her industrial background is in production and process development of inorganic chemical intermediates. Her work in inorganic chemicals production has included process engineering, design, and product development. She has consulted for industrial and pharmaceutical chemical production and research companies. Dr. Southard teaches process design and project economics, and has won several university-wide teaching awards, including the Honor for the Outstanding Progressive Educator (HOPE) Award and the Kemper Teaching Fellowship. She has authored 1 patent, 15 refereed publications, and numerous technical presentations. Her research interests are in biological and pharmaceutical mass transport. She is a Senior Member of AIChE and ASEE.
