As students reach their junior and senior undergraduate years, they are already well-versed in chemical engineering fundamentals and are beginning to apply them specifically in unit operations and process design. Critical aspects of learn- ing can be addressed by immersion into unfamiliar territory where students are required to apply chemical engineering principles to solve new and unusual problems. The course "Introduction to Biochemical Engineering" IBChE repre- sents an opportunity for this kind of engineering synthesis and design. Synthesis, the assembly of components to form a new whole, is demonstrated in biochemical engineering as students design products and processes based on combining chemical engineering with microbiology, molecular biology, and biochemistry.
We thought it worthwhile reading for students and faculty alike. Having worked in many fields and having had a varied career gives one the ad- vantage of an overlook, and one often sees things that an insider cannot see.
This paper is about some of these impressions on the present status of control. Let me start with three episodes that happened to me recently and induced me to choose this topic for presentation.
The first was a question asked of me by the chairman of one of the top chemical en- gineering departments in the United States. He asked me if process control today is still an active field of research in ChE and if it makes sense to have somebody in this field.
It was an honest ques- tion, which is also asked by quite a few others, even those who have been active in control in recent years and are now leaving it. I'll try to answer it later. The second occurrence was a letter I received from a former student of mine who obtained his Ph.
I sent him a recent paper 1and in commenting on it he complained that our engineering profession is so far backward in the application of novel ideas in control that he has decided to go where the action is and become an applied mathematician.
He is known from his publications in reactor design, process dynamics and control, crystallisation, fluid dynamics, and combustion. A special interest of his is the application of probability and stochastic processes in engineering.
Professor Shinnar received his B. Before taking up an academic career he worked for ten years in industry and still consults to the chemical and petroleum industry.
The reviewer complained that the authors were unfairly criticizing the academic world, since he questioned how an academic could know what is and what is not implementable in industry.
I don't know who here was hard on whom. I can hardly imagine a more severe condemnation of our academic engineering profession than this statement.
If engineering professors have ceased to know what can and cannot be implemented, what are we teaching? In these three episodes there is a reflection of the whole sad state of research in process control as well as an indication as to what needs to be done.
But on the other hand, the application of these advances in industrial practice has been rather meager, and even those that are active in designing controls for completely automated com- plex plants complain that the publication of the academic community seem to be irrelevant to any conceivable needs.
Furthermore, some of our best people are leaving the field disenchanted, and it is not attracting top students as often as previously. This is happening just as exciting applications, are starting finally to appear, and, there are definite trends in industry that will require a better under- standing of modern control.
But even in industry the love affair with proc- ess simulation and control is cooling. The heat is on almost all the research groups in the industry. Maybe we started too early and promised more than we could fulfill. But we could reasonably ex- pect more understanding from industry.
Let me remind you that the total expense of any major oil company on research in process control in any given year is less than for one major television commercial, and there is less evidence that com- mercials sell gasoline.
Somehow I feel that some of the recent ad- advances in control theory offer exciting possibil- ities for better design, but there is very little knowledge as to what these values really are, where they can be successfully applied, and what the pitfalls are, and there is no question a lot of it is irrelevant.Solutions Manual for Biochemical Engineering has 8 ratings and 0 reviews: Published by CRC Press, pages, Paperback.
