A hierarchical decision procedure for process synthesis
A new procedure for synthesizing process flow sheets and base-case designs has been developed. The procedure is evolutionary in nature and proceeds through a hierarchy of decision levels, where moreExpand

Relative gain array for units in plants with recycle
La presence de boucles de recyclage dans un procede peut avoir un effet significatif sur la matrice de gain d'une unite et donc sur le dispositif de gain relatif (D.G.R.). Demonstration en traitantExpand

Synthesis of separation system flowsheels
A hierarchical decision procedure for the synthesis of separation system flowsheets for vapor–organic liquid– aqueous liquid– solid mixtures is proposed. An expanded set of synthesis rules that canExpand

Process synthesis for waste minimization
This paper reports on the hierarchical decision procedure described by Douglas which provides a simple way of identifying potential pollution problems early in the development stages of a design. TheExpand

The interface between design and control. 1. Process controllability
La gouvernabilite d'un processus peut etre atteinte: en modifiant le flowsheet pour obtenir de plus nombreuses variables manipulees, en surdimensionnant certains appareils pour que les contraintes neExpand

Agent-based approach to a design support system for the synthesis of continuous chemical processes
Abstract A successful, computer-aided design support system can help a process designer focus on making effective design decisions, not merely tedious routine calculations. Such a system is essentialExpand
