Chemical engineering refers to a branch of engineering that studies the design and operation of chemical plants, as well as methods for increasing production. It applies the principles of biology, physics, economics, chemistry and mathematics to create, transform, design, use and transport materials and energy in an effective manner. There are five basic types of chemical engineering operations, namely, fluid flow processes, heat transfer processes, mass transfer processes, thermodynamic processes and mechanical processes. Chemical engineering finds prominent use in large-scale manufacturing plants, where the objective is to optimize product quality and output while lowering costs. It is also used in the development and enhancement of technological goods such as biocompatible materials, ultrastrong adhesives, and fabrics and fibers in the biomedical, aerospace, environmental, military, automotive, electronics and medical industries. This book unfolds the operations and applications of chemical engineering, which will be crucial for the progress of this field in the future. It includes contributions of experts and scientists, which will provide innovative insights into this field.
