Three types of design problems are discussed in this book. One is the design of a plant for a totally new product. The second is the design of a new process for a product that currently is being produced. The last is the preliminary design of a competitor’s plant* to determine what his costs are. In each of these* little is known about the process* so that a large amount of educated guessing must occur.
This book deals mainly with chemical plant design* as distinct from the design of petroleum refineries. For the latter* large amounts of data have been accumulated* and the procedures are very sophisticated. It is assumed that the reader has some familiarity with material and energy balances. A background in unit operations and thermodynamics would also be helpful* although it is not necessary. No attempt is made to repeat the material presented in these courses. This book applies a systems philosophy to the preliminary process design and cost estimation of a plant. In doing so* it tries to keep in perspective all aspects of the design. There is always a tendency on the part of designers to get involved in specific details* and forget that their job is to produce a product of the desired quality and quantity* at the lowest price* in a safe facility. What is not needed is a technological masterpiece that is difficult to operate or costly to build.

While existing books related to DOE are focused either on process or mixture factors or analyze specific tools from DOE science* this text is structured both horizontally and vertically* covering the three most common objectives of any experimental research:
☻mathematical modeling* and
Written in a simple and lively manner and backed by current chemical product studies from all around the world* the book elucidates basic concepts of statistical methods* experiment design and optimization techniques as applied to chemistry and chemical engineering. Throughout* the focus is on unifying the theory and methodology of optimization with well-known statistical and experimental methods.
The author draws on his own experience in research and development* resulting in a work that will assist students* scientists and engineers in using the concepts covered here in seeking optimum conditions for a chemical system or process.
With 441 tables* 250 diagrams* as well as 200 examples drawn from current chemical product studies* this is an invaluable and convenient source of information for all those involved in process optimization.
