Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967927404, Hardcover)

This book is a practical guide to the steady state modeling of petroleum processes (using commercial simulators).

The book bridges the gap between theoretical computer simulator programs and real world refinery processes. It is based on the author's practical experience in modeling refining processes for over 35 years and is the outgrowth of hundreds of training courses he has presented. The simulation techniques are general and may be applied to any commercial simulation program that has the necessary features to model petroleum processes.

Features include:
. Petroleum characteristics and standard laboratory tests
. Procedures for estimating incomplete laboratory test information
. Development of pseudo-components to represent petroleum
. Practical thermodynamic information
. Understandable approach to modeling distillation
. General technical information for processes
. Test data collection and reconciliation for processes
. Simulation techniques for refinery reaction systems
. Simulation procedures for processes
. Processes included are:
-Crude and vacuum distillation
-FCC processes
-Catalytic reforming processes
-Hydrogen processes
-Thermal processes
-Alkylation processes
-Miscellaneous processes

The reader will gain a working knowledge of the petroleum refining processes. The tips and tricks presented in this book will help the reader avoid the time consuming pitfalls so often encountered when developing simulation models.

The book contains a glossary of petroleum and chemical engineering terminology and an extensive index.
