The Leading Integrated Chemical Process Design Guide: With Extensive Coverage of Equipment Design and Other Key Topics


More than ever, effective design is the focal point of sound chemical engineering. Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Chemical Processes, Fifth Edition, presents design as a creative process that integrates the big-picture and small details, and knows which to stress when and why. Realistic from start to finish, it moves readers beyond classroom exercises into open-ended, real-world problem solving. The authors introduce up-to-date, integrated techniques ranging from finance to operations, and new plant design to existing process optimization.


The fifth edition includes updated safety and ethics resources and economic factors indices, as well as an extensive, new section focused on process equipment design and performance, covering equipment design for common unit operations, such as fluid flow, heat transfer, separations, reactors, and more. 

  • Conceptualization and analysis: process diagrams, configurations, batch processing, product design, and analyzing existing processes
  • Economic analysis: estimating fixed capital investment and manufacturing costs, measuring process profitability, and more
  • Synthesis and optimization: process simulation, thermodynamic models, separation operations, heat integration, steady-state and dynamic process simulators, and process regulation
  • Chemical equipment design and performance: a full section of expanded and revamped coverage of designing process equipment and evaluating the performance of current equipment
  • Advanced steady-state simulation: goals, models, solution strategies, and sensitivity and optimization results
  • Dynamic simulation: goals, development, solution methods, algorithms, and solvers
  • Societal impacts: ethics, professionalism, health, safety, environmental issues, and green engineering
  • Interpersonal and communication skills: working in teams, communicating effectively, and writing better reports

This text draws on a combined 55 years of innovative instruction at West Virginia University (WVU) and the University of Nevada, Reno. It includes suggested curricula for one- and two-semester design courses, case studies, projects, equipment cost data, and extensive preliminary design information for jump-starting more detailed analyses.

Author Biography

Richard Turton, P.E., has taught the design and design-related courses at West Virginia University for the past 32 years. Prior to this, he spent five years in the design and construction industry. His main interests are design education and process systems modeling.


Joseph A. Shaeiwitz taught design and design-related classes at West Virginia University for more than 25 years. He now teaches design at Auburn University. His interests include design education and outcomes assessment.


Debangsu Bhattacharyya has more than ten years’ experience in a large petroleum refinery. While in the refinery, he worked in process operations, plant start-up, large-scale process simulation, and process control. His main research interests are in process modeling, dynamic simulation, state estimation, sensor placement, and advanced process control.


Wallace B. Whiting, P.E., is professor emeritus at University of Nevada, Reno. He has been involved in the practice and teaching of chemical process design for more than 24 years.
