COST ESTIMATION AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT VOLUME 1: PLANT OPERATIONS

Cost estimation and project management are essential activities in countless chemical process industries (CPI) activities.

The articles in this Chemical Engineering Guidebook provide a variety of practical strategies for carrying out cost estimation and budgeting related to CPI projects, and for managing the many aspects of such complex engineering undertakings.

Several articles focus on process safety and instrumentation, while others provide cost-estimation and project-management strategies related to pumps, valves, filtration systems and pilot plants. Articles are compiled from previous issues of Chemical Engineering.

COST ESTIMATION AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT VOLUME 2: STARTUPS, REVAMPS AND TURNAROUNDS

Nowhere is proper cost estimation and project management more important than in startups, revamps and turnaround projects that happen every day throughout the global chemical process industries (CPI).

The articles in this Chemical Engineering Guidebook provide actionable strategies and insights carrying out budgeting exercises and implementing proven project-management strategies.

Several articles are devoted explicitly to carrying out revamps and startups in ways that optimize operations and reduce costs. Other articles discuss — and share tips related to— how to carry out feasibility studies, proper budgeting, and benchmarking (to compare the operations in question against those of others). Topics focus on supporting employees during complex engineering projects, and managing environmental considerations.

CRC HANDBOOK OF CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS, 99TH EDITION

 In a world with access to unlimited amounts of data, how can users who need to make critical scientific and technical decisions find high quality, reliable data? Today, more than ever, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics remains a hallmark of quality. For over 100 years, the Handbook has provided property data on chemical compounds (now over 20,000) and all physical particles that have been reported in the literature, carefully reviewed by subject experts. Every year older collections are updated with the latest values and new areas will be added as science progresses.

DIFFUSION AND MASS TRANSFER

 A proper understanding of diffusion and mass transfer theory is critical for obtaining correct solutions to many transport problems. Diffusion and Mass Transfer presents a comprehensive summary of the theoretical aspects of diffusion and mass transfer and applies that theory to obtain detailed solutions for a large number of important problems. Particular attention is paid to various aspects of polymer behavior, including polymer diffusion, sorption in polymers, and volumetric behavior of polymer–solvent systems.
