This presentation of the problems of utilizing optimization methods in the design of process equipment for chemical, food stuff, pharmaceutics, power and other industries, is unique. It shows the best methods for determining equipment designs, what facilitates process and entire plant design. The book's strength is its sound foundation in optimal design methodology, and in the practical application of such method within industry. A special feature is the application of design to engineering practice by the analysis of problems in process equipment design, with pointers to useful theoretical tools to aid problem solution. Early chapters discuss engineering problems with powerful mathematical models and proofs leading to their solution. A modelling section surveys optimization and the computing methods involved. There is also a useful discussion of the optimization of typical equipment from various industries. The author provides the reader with the necessary mathematical basis of optimal design, as well as practical guidance for the use of optimization methods in real-life situations. Readership: Process equipment designers, engineers both civil and mechanical, those in the chemical industries, food industries, pharmaceutical industries, power and other industries, and graduate students in engineering. --- Krzysztof Urbaniec is Associate Professor in the Research Institute for Organization of Machine Industry in Warsaw, Poland; he is a former Head of Research and Development Department of Chemadex in Warsaw, where he was previously Head of Computer-Aided Design.
