Two new books in Chemical Engineering and Plant Design

Elsevier announced the publication of two new books in the areas of Chemical Process Engineering and Plant Design.

What Went Wrong? Case Histories of Process Disasters and How They Could Have Been Avoided, - 6th Edition

by Trevor Kletz and Paul Amyotte

This new edition provides a complete analysis of the design, operational, and management causes of process plant accidents and disasters. Newly incorporated in this edition are questions and personal exercises at the end of each major book section. Case histories illustrate what went wrong and why it went wrong, and then guide readers in how to avoid similar tragedies and learn without having to experience the loss incurred by others. Updated throughout and expanded, this title is the ultimate resource of experienced-based analysis and guidance for safety and loss prevention professionals.


An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design - 2nd Edition

by Seán Moran

This new edition is a guide to process plant design for both students and professional engineers. The book covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programs and key drawings produced by professional engineers as aids to design; subjects that are usually learned on the job rather than in education. The reader will learn how to produce smarter plant design through the use of computer tools, including Excel and AutoCAD, “What If Analysis,” statistical tools, and Visual Basic for more complex problems. The book also includes a wealth of selection tables, covering the key aspects of professional plant design which engineering students and early-career engineers tend to find most challenging.
