Chemical Engineering Volume 6 – An introduction to the art and practice of design as applied to chemical processes and equipment. It is intended primarily as a text for chemical engineering students undertaking the design projects that are set as part of undergraduate courses in chemical engineering in the UK and USA. It has been written to complement the treatment of chemical engineering fundamentals given in Chemical Engineering volumes 1, 2 and 3. Examples are given in each chapter to illustrate the design methods presented.
This book is a worthy member of an excellent series, and should be of value to many experienced engineers as well as to most undergraduates.

About the Author
Ray Sinnott’s varied career, mainly in design and development, began with several major companies including Dupont and John Brown. The main areas covered within these appointments were: Gas Production and Distribution, Nuclear Energy, Elastomers and Textile fibres. After his career in industry he joined the Chemical Engineering Department, University of Wales Swansea in 1970, specialising in teaching process and plant design, and other engineering practice subjects. The first edition of Chemical Engineering Design (Coulson and Richardson’s Vol 6) was published in 1983. Subsequent editions have been published at approximately 5 year intervals. Ray Sinnott retired from full time teaching in 1995 but has maintained close contact with the engineering profession.
