This is a very informative, exhaustive, and modern chemical engineering design textbook. It covers all essential aspects of chemical design for plants and processes, including, as the subtitle suggests, principles, practices and the economics of such design. It is intended for an advanced undergraduate course, or even for an introductory graduate course in chemical engineering or related fields.
The chapters include: "Process Flowsheet Development," "Instrumentation and Process Control," "Capital Cost Estimating," "General Site Considerations," "Design of Pressure Vessels," "Separation of Fluids," "Transport and Storage of Fluids," and many others. Chapters generally build upon the preceding material, but there are a few that can be skipped if they don't directly align with the course material. The writing is very detailed, with many worked-out examples, tables, graphs and references. Each chapter ends with a set of problems. The problems vary in difficulty, but are generally well suited as a way for testing the understanding of the material in any given chapter. The book also includes 108 realistic design projects from several industries. The book can also be used as a reference for practicing engineers or designers. It is one of the more impressive technical textbooks that I've come across.
