Here is a new and analytical approach to chemical plant safety-encompassing design, construction, and operation to reduce the likelihood of hazardous incidents as well as actions to mitigate their consequences should they still occur. The most significant safety issues are addressed both from the viewpoint of the fundamental phenomena and the perspective of plant design. Many of the phenomena covered are outside the scope of the normal chemical engineering curriculae; examples include compressible multiphase flow, deflagrations and detonations, turbulent dispersion, thermochemical characterization methods for material decomposition and reactions. In the plant design area, topics of importance include built in redundancy of equipment, and minimization of inventory of hazardous materials. The combination of the fundamental and applied aspects makes this book a unique and useful one for both the academic and industrial sectors.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'Banerjee, a chemical and industrial professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, goes deeply into the theory underlying chemical plant safety' "Journal of Hazardous Materials, 99(2003)222."
"Each chapter is a well-written treatment of a major type of accident that has occurred in the process industries. The case studies that are discussed are well documented and a useful technique for showing how and why specific accidents occurred...this is a well-designed textbook written at a level appropriate for its intended audience of undergraduate engineering students...it is a recommended textbook for academic libraries with undergraduate chemical engineering programs.."
-Linda Ackerson, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Grainger Engineering Library "E-Streams Vol.6, No.8 - August 2003
