Written for those less comfortable with science and mathematics, this text introduces the major chemical engineering topics for non-chemical engineers. With a focus on the practical rather than the theoretical, the reader will obtain a foundation in chemical engineering that can be applied directly to the workplace. By the end of this book, the user will be aware of the major considerations required to safely and efficiently design and operate a chemical processing facility. Simplified accounts of traditional chemical engineering topics are covered in the first two-thirds of the book, and include: materials and energy balances, heat and mass transport, fluid mechanics, reaction engineering, separation processes, process control and process equipment design. The latter part details modern topics, such as biochemical engineering and sustainable development, plus practical topics of safety and process economics, providing the reader with a complete guide. Case studies are included throughout, building a real-world connection. These case studies form a common thread throughout the book, motivating the reader and offering enhanced understanding. Further reading directs those wishing for a deeper appreciation of certain topics. This book is ideal for professionals working with chemical engineers, and decision makers in chemical engineering industries. It will also be suitable for chemical engineering courses where a simplified introductory text is desired.

Mathcad for Chemical Engineers demonstrates the use of Mathcad 13, which is the latest version of one of the most powerful and popular computational software packages in the world, for solving various chemical engineering problems. The book serves as a must-to-have guide and quick reference for chemical engineers and those who would like to learn and use Mathcad as their computational tool. This book can also be used as a textbook for chemical engineering education on computing using Mathcad. The book contains many real-life chemical engineering examples from various areas: material and energy balance, thermodynamics, transport phenomena, kinetics and reactor design, unit operations, engineering economics, and operations management. Unlike other books of similar theme, concise, but comprehensive, explanations are given in each chapter and step-by-step procedures of solving mathematical problems are also given for quick reference. Many examples allow readers to experience the power of Mathcad in solving chemical engineering problems. The book has chapters on Mathcad fundamentals, solving a single algebraic equation and a system of algebraic equations, curve fitting, integration and differentiation, solving a single ordinary differential equation (ODE) and a system of ODEs, solving a single partial differential equation (PDE) and a system of PDEs, and programming in Mathcad. There are a number of exercise problems at the end of each chapter that allow readers to further expose themselves to various chemical engineering problems. Although Mathcad 13 is the software package chosen by the authors and used throughout the book, most of the features discussed can also be applied using earlier versions of Mathcad. Furthermore, although Mathcad will always evolve into a newer version, most of the contents in this book will be applicable for any subsequent version of Mathcad.

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.
