The most all-inclusive, critical survey of the most reliable estimating methods in use today--now completely rewritten and reorganized to reflect the late-breaking developments. A must for design engineers and chemcial engineers working with processes involving liquids, gases, and mixtures, this book delivers on-the-spot information for estimating both physical and thermodynamic properties in the absence of experimental data. Provides an instant-access property data bank of 600+ compound constants for calculating properties.

Industry Reviews

Ever since the first edition of this work was published in 1958, it has been a "must have" in the reference library of Chemical Engineers, particularly those engaged in process design. It has long been the primary reference for anyone who must estimate physical or thermodynamic properties required for equipment design knowing little more than the chemical formula of the materials to be handled. The main value of this book over a simple bibliography that can now be generated by a computer search is that the authors continue the practice started in the first edition of publishing tables comparing the results of using the various estimation methods to each other and experimental data when available and then make recommendations as to which method seems to work best under various conditions. The need for regular updating was succintly stated by Reid and Sherwood in their Preface to the second edition in 1966 when they commented that the half life of estimation correlations seemed to be about four years. Although there are now more fundamentally based properties estimation methods than there were then, the authors note in their Preface to the new edition that "...most estimation methods rely heavily on empiricism..." Thus the need for periodic updating of this work continues. Space does not permit listing chapter by chapter the significant differences from the previous edition, but they are substantial. The properties data bank in Appendix A has been completed revised. This new edition should be added to the library of anyone who must estimate physical properties of materials to be processed. -- Kunesh, John AIChE Journal 20011201
