Nonlinear Systems Stability Analysis: Lyapunov-Based Approach

Seyed Kamaleddin Yadavar Nikravesh
October 12, 2017

The equations used to describe dynamic properties of physical systems are often nonlinear, and it is rarely possible to find their solutions. Although numerical solutions are impractical and graphical techniques are not useful for many types of systems, there are different theorems and methods that...

Designing Controls for the Process Industries

Wayne Seames
September 08, 2017

Offering a modern, process-oriented approach emphasizing process control scheme development instead of extended coverage of LaPlace space descriptions of process dynamics, this text focuses on aspects that are most important for process engineering in the 21st century. Instead of starting with the...

Deterministic Flexibility Analysis: Theory, Design, and Applications

Chuei-Tin Chang, Vincentius Surya Kurnia Adi
July 27, 2017

Traditionally, design and control decisions are made in sequential stages over the life cycle of a chemical plant. In the design phase, the optimal operating conditions and the corresponding material and energy balance data are established mainly on the basis of economic considerations. In the...

Synthesis, Design, and Resource Optimization in Batch Chemical Plants

Thokozani Majozi, Esmael Reshid Seid, Jui-Yuan Lee
July 26, 2017

The manner in which time is captured forms the foundation for synthesis, design, and optimization in batch chemical plants. However, there are still serious challenges with handling time in batch plants. Most techniques tend to assume either a fixed time dimension or adopt time average models to...

Process Modelling and Simulation in Chemical, Biochemical and Environmental Engineering

Ashok Kumar Verma
March 30, 2017

The use of simulation plays a vital part in developing an integrated approach to process design. By helping save time and money before the actual trial of a concept, this practice can assist with troubleshooting, design, control, revamping, and more. Process Modelling and Simulation in Chemical,...
