Rotary Reactor Engineering Book Excerpt:

Rotary reactors or rotary kilns are the reactors facilitating the chemical reaction between the gas and solid phases usually at high temperatures. This book, which is written by an expert in the field, describes the principles of the rotary reactor and the mode of its operation. These reactors are widely used in various chemical process industries (food, pharmaceuticals) and metallurgical industries. The book defines the physiochemical aspects of the rotart reactors and provides theoretical equations of their operation. The first part of this book presents the fundamentals; solid movement, conversion of solids, and heat transfer. The middle part of the book applies these equations to a variety of processes which have been developed so far, and shows how they are used. In its last part, conceptual designs of novel rotary reactors are proposed, which performance characteristics are predicted on the basis of above equations, especially, in gasification of solid wastes. - Defines the rotary reactors and their mode of operation. - Defines all operating parameters and gives equations to predict the operation of rotary reactors under various conditions. - Includes a number of practical examples from various industrial applications (metallurgical waste treatment etc).

Advances in Concentrating Solar Thermal Research and Technology Book Excerpt:

After decades of research and development, concentrating solar thermal (CST) power plants (also known as concentrating solar power (CSP) and as Solar Thermal Electricity or STE systems) are now starting to be widely commercialized. Indeed, the IEA predicts that by 2050, with sufficient support over ten percent of global electricity could be produced by concentrating solar thermal power plants. However, CSP plants are just but one of the many possible applications of CST systems. Advances in Concentrating Solar Thermal Research and Technology provides detailed information on the latest advances in CST systems research and technology. It promotes a deep understanding of the challenges the different CST technologies are confronted with, of the research that is taking place worldwide to address those challenges, and of the impact that the innovation that this research is fostering could have on the emergence of new CST components and concepts. It is anticipated that these developments will substantially increase the cost-competiveness of commercial CST solutions and reshape the technological landscape of both CST technologies and the CST industry. After an introductory chapter, the next three parts of the book focus on key CST plant components, from mirrors and receivers to thermal storage. The final two parts of the book address operation and control and innovative CST system concepts. Contains authoritative reviews of CST research taking place around the world Discusses the impact this research is fostering on the emergence of new CST components and concepts that will substantially increase the cost-competitiveness of CST power Covers both major CST plant components and system-wide issues

Engineering Economics and Economic Design for Process Engineers Book Excerpt:

Engineers often find themselves tasked with the difficult challenge of developing a design that is both technically and economically feasible. A sharply focused, how-to book, Engineering Economics and Economic Design for Process Engineers provides the tools and methods to resolve design and economic issues. It helps you integrate technical and economic decision making, creating more profit and growth for your organization. The book puts methods that are simple, fast, and inexpensive within easy reach. Author Thane Brown sets the stage by explaining the engineer’s role in the creation of economically feasible projects. He discusses the basic economics of projects — how they are funded, what kinds of investments they require, how revenues, expenses, profits, and risks are interrelated, and how cash flows into and out of a company. In the engineering economics section of the book, Brown covers topics such as present and future values, annuities, interest rates, inflation, and inflation indices. He details how to create order-of-magnitude and study grade estimates for the investments in a project and how to make study grade production cost estimates. Against this backdrop, Brown explores a unique scheme for producing an Economic Design. He demonstrates how using the Economic Design Model brings increased economic thinking and rigor into the early parts of design, the time in a project’s life when its cost structure is being set and when the engineer’s impact on profit is greatest. The model emphasizes three powerful new tools that help you create a comprehensive design option list. When the model is used early in a project, it can drastically lower both capital and production costs. The book’s uniquely industrial focus presents topics as they would happen in a real work situation. It shows you how to combine technical and economic decision making to create economically optimum designs and increase your impact on profit and growth, and, therefore, your importance to your organization. Using these time-tested techniques, you can design processes that cost less to build and operate, and improve your company’s profit.

Annotation About the Book: Now that India is virtually the only player in this field, an elaboration is needed with respect to more fundamental understanding as well as future prospects and needs, which this edition has tried to fulfill. It can now fulfill the need of a reference textbook in alternate iron making area for undergraduate and post graduate students in Metallurgical, Production, Manufacturing, Chemical, Materials and to a minor extent Mechanical Engineering disciplines. The aim of fulfilling the needs of entrepreneurs and plant operators has not only been retained; it has been elaborated. Further, the basic aspects have been presented in a way that is lucid and simple to understand and should serve as an incentive to the operators and entrepreneurs to develop a deeper understanding of the process. The project engineering section now gives guidelines sufficient to make a project report. Opportunities available to this process and the competition it faces has also been highlighted. A chapter on reaction kinetics has been included as also a section on iron ore and pellets. Other sections included are on Aerodynamics, Auto Ignition, Coal Throwing, etc. Rest of the text has been updated to the extent possible. Some advanced features have been introduced such as Mathematical Modeling, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Reduction Mechanism, etc. to give researchers in the area of food for thought.
