New chemical engineering books available to IChemE members
8 April 2019
Twenty new books have been added to the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) online library Knovel; including a recently updated title of the popular chemical engineering textbook by Coulson and Richardson.
Knovel is an online resource with more than 300 textbooks and technical references for IChemE members to freely access.
This year new editions on Knovel, updated by IChemE and leading publisher Elsevier, include:
Coulson and Richardson’s Chemical Engineering; Volume 1B - Heat and Mass Transfer – Fundamentals and Applications (7th Edition);
Particle Technology and Engineering – An Engineer’s Guide to Particles and Powders – Fundamentals and Computational Approaches (1st Edition);
Food Process Engineering and Technology.
In response to user demand, Food Process Engineering and Technology and an interactive equation on fluid dynamics and thermodynamics from the oil and gas engineering section were also added.
In 2018, IChemE members accessed the online library almost 73,000 times. The most prominent titles were Chemical Engineering Design - Principles, Practice and Economics of Plant and Process Design (2nd Edition); Coulson and Richardson’s Chemical Engineering Volume 6 – Chemical Engineering Design (4th Edition); Loss Prevention in the Process Industries; and Critical Property Data for Chemical Engineers and Chemists.
Claudia Flavell-While, IChemE Director of Policy and Publications, said:
“The books, interactive equations and technical references on Knovel equip our members with the tools they need to advance chemical engineering’s contribution worldwide for the benefit of society.
“From solving design problems and searching for chemical formulae, to improving processes and researching new topics, our members find these resources on Knovel excellent and easily accessible for their daily needs in the profession. I’m sure these new titles will prove popular too.”
