Chemical product design is a multidisciplinary and diverse subject. Ng,Rafiqul Gani,Kim Dam-Johansen Chemical Product Design: Towards a Perspective through Case Studies -Ka M. This is driven partly by consumer demands and partly by the emergence of new molecules, nanomaterials, advanced materials, and innovative processing technologies. Solution of these problems require a hybrid multidisciplinary approach involving, for example, fundamental issues interfacial phenomena, phase equilibria, kinetics, etc. Epitaxial Silicon Wafers Using Plasma-enhanced Chemical-Vapor-Deposition T.
It is suggested that product engineering can face complex and nonideal media, take into account the chemical structure in a systems approach, and understand the phenomena on a multiscale view. For formulated products, an integrated experiment-molecular modelling approach to generate the formula with the specified product attributes is followed. Solvent Design for Crystallization of Pharmaceutical Products A. The Role of Crystallisation and Solubility Modelling in the Design of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients P. Chemical product design is concerned with the design of specialty products such as formulated products, specialty chemicals, etc.
The constraints imposed by the need to specify and validate courses internally and to minimise substantive programme changes subsequently, whilst responding to the opportunities that arise as staff are recruited and to external developments and unplanned incidents, are highlighted and illustrated, in order to draw lessons that might help to guide other new entrants. Four product types are considered - molecular products, formulated products, devices and functional products. The candidate may be a single chemical, a mixture, or a formulation of active ingredients and additives. In recent years the chemical processes industry has faced important social, technical and economical challenges. In this way, much time and resources are saved during the development of lead biologically active compounds. A framework for systematic computer aided chemical product design has also been proposed within the context of systematic chemical product design.
This article focuses on product conceptualization what-to-make and briefly reviews the corresponding manufacturing processes how-to-make. Design of Industrial Catalysts K. In the first case, on-line monitoring schemes keep the materials being processed and their corresponding processing steps at their specified and approved design to ensure that the product with the specified quality would be obtained. Comprehensive in coverage, exhaustive in detail, it is supported by extensive problems and a separate solutions manual for adopting tutors and lecturers. Finally, the performance of the manufactured product, when applied, needs to be tested and validated. In designing a new chemical product, the starting point is to define a desired function, rather than a chemical specification; thus chemical product design inevitably encompasses deciding what to make as well as the process by which it will be made. Chemical Engineering Design is one of the best-known and widely adopted texts available for students of chemical engineering.
Perspectives on the role of process design in the context of product design are presented. All three volumes of Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants serve the practicing engineer by providing organized design procedures, details on the equipment suitable for application selection, and charts in readily usable form. A pesticide product consisting of an active ingredient and an additive need to be evaluated in terms of its controlled release characteristics from a polymeric microcapsule to a release medium. Nature of Chemical Products L. Ng,Rafiqul Gani,Kim Dam-Johansen- Full Text Archive Amazon.
Computer-Aided Molecular Design Using a Linear Group Contribution Method for the Prediction of Pure Component Properties: Application to Solvent Selection L. A more detailed look at product design activities allows us to point at some of the tools that are useful for this activity. It clarifies the terminology used and explains the systems methodology approach to process design and operation for chemists with limited chemical engineering knowledge. The final consumer product, Dove, is a well known product from Unilever. Among the topics covered are: flowsheet synthesis, mass and energy balances, equipment sizing and costing, economic evaluation, process simulation and optimization.
This book covers the latest methods and tools currently available in the field and discusses future challenges that the chemical industry is faced with. This book helps engineers and senior-level students hone their design skills through process design rather than simply plant design. An important first step is to collect information from known or published case studies and store them in a suitable database with an appropriate search engine for data retrieval. Thus departments can find themselves with few staff competent or keen to supervise the Design Project. Eppinger, Product Design and Development, second edition, Irwin McGraw-Hill, Boston 2000. Case Studies in Chemical Product Design K.
This new edition includes important supplemental mechanical and related data, nomographs and charts. They have also developed experimental techniques for chemical product design as well as computer-aided design methods and tools. This volume summarizes the results after nine years of cooperative research work. Chemical Product Design: Towards a Perspective through Case Studies provides a framework for chemical product design problems which are clearly defined together with different solution approaches. A hybrid experiment-model based approach has been developed to solve this problem. The ensuing chapters cover the problems in chemical engineering thermodynamics as well as initial value problems, boundary value problems and convection—diffusion problems.
Of great value to undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as professional engineers. This book will help chemical engineers optimize the efficiency of production processes, by providing both a philosophical framework and detailed information about chemical process design. Figure 1 illustrates these links by highlighting the interest in a process that is capable of manufacturing a product having the desired qualities and functions that match the targeted product performance. Numerous examples illustrate theoretical priciples and design issues. Introduction to Product Design R. It is primarily intended as a teaching support for undergraduate and postgraduate students following various process design courses and projects, but will also be of great value to professional engineers interested in the newest design methods. This book covers the methods and tools available in the field and discusses challenges that the chemical industry is faced with.
Model-based computer-aided design for controlled release of pesticides, Computers and Chemical Engineering, 30, 28-41. Chemical products are immensely varied and the conceptual model and template discussed here do not offer a panacea; but they provide a framework within which thinking and practice are possible. Results of the teaching activities and the strengths and weaknesses of the proposed case study are discussed in relation to the course characteristics. Marine Biofouling Protection: Design of Controlled Release Antifouling Paints S. Examples are given in each chapter to illustrate the design methods presented.
