Buy essential books to learn HYSYS Simulation

In this post I shall show you many essential books to learn and master one of the most famous chemical processing simulation software Aspen HYSYS:


1-      Aspen HYSYS: An Introduction to Chemical Engineering Simulation: For Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Students Paperback – March 20, 2013
         By Mohd. Kamaruddin Abd. Hamid (Author)


Aspen HYSYS: An Introduction to Chemical Engineering Simulations is intended for students who are using Aspen HYSYS for the first time and have little or no experience in computer simulation. It can be used as a textbook in freshmen chemical engineering courses, or workshops where Aspen HYSYS is being taught. The book can also serve as a reference in more advanced chemical engineering courses when Aspen HYSYS is used as a tool for simulation and solving problems. It also can be used for self study of Aspen HYSYS by students and practicing engineers. In addition, the book can be a supplement or a secondary book in courses where Aspen HYSYS is used, but the instructor does not have time to cover it extensively.

3-      HYSYS and Aspen Plus in Process Design Paperback – February 17, 2015
        By Rao K. Naga Malleswara  (Author)


The three stages of Process Design procedure are 1)Conceptual design stage 2)Preliminary Design stage and 3)Detailed Design stage. These three stages are well explained in this book. Process Design Procedure developed in this book using Preliminary process calculations (Hand calculations), HYSYS and ASPEN PLUS V8.0 can be applied to various other Chemical Process Designs. This book also can serve as a class room text for senior and graduate level chemical Process design courses at the University level. It is especially useful for Chemical Engineers.

4-      Chemical Process Simulation and the Aspen HYSYS v8.3 Software Paperback – November 28, 2013  By Michael E. Hanyak Jr  (Author)
The document Chemical Process Simulation and the Aspen HYSYS v8.3 Software is a self-paced instructional manual that aids students in learning how to use a chemical process simulator and how a process simulator models material balances, phase equilibria, and energy balances for chemical process units. The student learning is driven by the development of the material and energy requirements for a specific chemical process flowsheet. This semester-long, problem-based learning activity is intended to be a student-based independent study, with about two-hour support provided once a week by a student teaching assistant to answer any questions. Chapter 1 of this HYSYS manual provides an overview of the problem assignment to make styrene monomer from toluene and methanol. Chapter 2 presents ten tutorials to introduce the student to the HYSYS simulation software. The first six of these tutorials can be completed in a two-week period for the introductory chemical engineering course. The other four are intended for the senior-level design course. Chapter 3 provides five assignments to develop the student’s abilities and confidence to simulate individual process units using HYSYS. These five assignments can be completed over a three-week period. Chapter 4 contains seven assignments to develop the styrene monomer flowsheet. These seven assignments can be completed over a seven-week period. In Chapter 4, each member of a four-, five-, or six-member team begins with the process reactor unit for a specifically-assigned temperature, molar conversion, and yield. Subsequent assignments increase the complexity of the flowsheet by adding process units, one by one, until the complete flowsheet with recycle is simulated in HYSYS. The team’s objective is to determine the operating temperature for the reactor, such that the net profit is maximized before considering federal taxes. Finally, eleven appendices provide mathematical explanations of how HYSYS does its calculations for various process units—process stream, stream tee, stream mixer, pump, valve, heater/cooler, chemical reactor, two-phase separator, three-phase separator, component splitter, and simple distillation. This HYSYS manual can be used with most textbooks for the introductory course on chemical engineering, like Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes (Felder and Rousseau, 2005), Basic Principles and Calculations in Chemical Engineering (Himmelblau and Riggs, 2004), or Introduction to Chemical Processes: Principles, Analysis, Synthesis (Murphy, 2007). It can also be used as a refresher for chemical engineering seniors in their process engineering design course. Because the HYSYS manuscript was compiled using Adobe Acrobat®, it contains many web links. Using a supplied web address and Acrobat Reader®, students can electronically access the web links that appear in many of the chapters. These web links access Aspen HYSYS®, Acrobat PDF®, Microsoft Word®, and Microsoft Excel® files that appear in many of chapters. Students can view but not copy or print the electronic version of the HYSYS manual.

5-      Design & Cost Estimation of Ethylene Production Unit From Naphta: Naphtha cracking process is simulated with ASPEN HYSYS then design and cost estimation is done with ASPEN ICARUS Paperback – October 15, 2015
       By:  Aref Shahi (Author), Maziar Heidari (Author), Hamed Aghaee (Author)

Ethylene is widely used in chemical industry, and its worldwide production(over 109 million tonnes in 2006) exceeds that of any other organic compound. Commercially ethylene is obtained by(1)thermal cracking of hydrocarbons such as ethane, propane, butane, naphtha, kerosene, gasoil, crude oil,etc,(2) auto thermic cracking (partial oxidation) of the above hydrocarbons,(3)recovery from refinery off-gas,(4) recovery from coke-oven gas, and(5) catalytic dehydration of ethyl alcohol or ethyl ether. The thermal cracking process is the most interesting process to produce ethylene commercially .At this project production of ethylene from naphtha is studied. Naphtha, an important feedstock for ethylene production, is a collective of liquid hydrocarbon intermediate oil refining products. It is a mixture of hydrocarbons in the boiling point range of 30-200ÂșC. it is fed to the naphtha cracking furnace. Then, the cracked gas is fed to gasoline fractionator, where it separates the quench oil as a bottom and the cracked gasoline and lighter components as the overhead products. Then, the overhead products are separated in different column.

Bioprocess Engineering: Basic Concepts, By Michael L. Shuler, Fikret Kargi

Michael L. Shuler, Fikret Kargi , "Bioprocess Engineering: Basic Concepts"
2001 | 2 edition | ISBN-10: 0130819085, 0131228579 | 576 pages | PDF | 20 MB

For Senior-level and graduate courses in Biochemical Engineering, and for programs in Agricultural and Biological Engineering or Bioengineering.
This concise yet comprehensive text introduces the essential concepts of bioprocessing―internal structure and functions of different types of microorganisms, major metabolic pathways, enzymes, microbial genetics, kinetics and stoichiometry of growth and product information―to traditional chemical engineers and those in related disciplines. It explores the engineering principles necessary for bioprocess synthesis and design, and illustrates the application of these principles to modern biotechnology for production of pharmaceuticals and biologics, solution of environmental problems, production of commodities, and medical applications.

Survey of Industrial Chemistry - Chenier, Third Edition

Survey of Industrial Chemistry (Topics in Applied Chemistry) 3rd Edition
by Philip J. Chenier  (Author), ISBN-13: 978-0306472466, ISBN-10: 0306472465, (6.50 MB)

Survey of Industrial Chemistry arose from a need for a basic text dealing with industrial chemistry for use in a one semester, three-credit senior level course taught at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. This edition covers all important areas of the chemical industry, yet it is reasonable that it can be covered in 40 hours of lecture. Also an excellent resource and reference for persons working in the chemical and related industries, it has sections on all important technologies used by these industries: a one-step source to answer most questions on practical, applied chemistry. Young scientists and engineers just entering the workforce will find it especially useful as a readily available handbook to prepare them for a type of chemistry quite different than they have seen in their traditional coursework, whether graduate or undergraduate.
