classic problem i
Classic Problem - I
  • What is the cost of a 400L copper tank to be pressurized to 40 MPa?
    • What dimensions minimize cost?
      • Tank Vol= πR2L
      • Two Stresses
        • Hoop Stress
        • Longitudinal Stress
hoop stress
  • The hoop stress can be expressed as:
        • σh = P d / 2 t (1)
      • where
        • σh = hoop stress (MPa, psi)
        • P = internal pressure in the tube or cylinder (MPa, psi)
        • d = [2R] internal diameter of tube or cylinder (mm, in)
        • t = tube or cylinder wall thickness (mm, in)
longitudinal stress
Longitudinal Stress
  • The longitudinal stress can be expressed as:
      • σl = P d / 4 t (2)
    • whereσl = longitudinal stress (MPa, psi)
copper strength
Copper Strength
  • Elastic Limit
  • Elastic Modulus
  • Yield point
  • Ultimate Strength
  • Failure
design criterion
Design Criterion
  • Hoop Stress < Yield Limit of Metal
  • Volume of Metal= (πR2t+ πR2t+2πRLt)
          • Top Bottom Wall
  • Cost= Cost/kg ρCuVol
  • Minimize cost by minimizing metal volume subject to the constraint that the hoop stress is less than the yield limit for copper (60 MPa) and that the tank volume is 400 L.
  • 60 MPa= P 2R / 2 t (1)
  • Solve for t= f(R) substitute into Vol of metal Equation minimize volume by taking deriviative w/r to R set equal to zero and solve for R. Use R to calculate L for the tank volume of 400L= πR2L
engineering economics
Engineering Economics
  • Discounted Cash Flow
  • Cost (e.g., incremental, average, sunk, estimating)
  • Analyses (e.g., breakeven, benefit-cost)
classic problem ii
Classic Problem II
  • What is the present value of $1,000,000 of profit for a process after the plant is built and is up and running. The construction and commissioning time is 3 years. Assume an interest rate of 8% per year.
  • F=P(1+i)n
  • Solve for P in F=$1,000,000= P(1+0.08)3

E. Cost estimation

XI. Safety, Health, and Environmental 5%

Classic Problem I
  • Determine the total capital investment in 2000 associated with a reactor with a production rate of 1,000,000 lb/yr that had a purchase price of $10,230 in 1990 and was designed for production rate of 1,000 lb/yr. Use Marshal & Swift installed equipment index.
  • CTC=(1,000,000lb/yr/1,000lb/yr)0.6 * $10,230(1108/924)*(455/100)
  • Production Rate Factor M&S Factor Total Capital

Classic Problem II
  • Scale-up calculations for a commercial evaporator Containing 38 mm OD tubes with 2 mm wall indicates that the boiling coefficient is 4,500 W/m2/K and the condensing steam coefficient is 3500 W/m2/k. The Steam condenses at 150C. The vapor rate will be 1.2 kg/s. All other conditions are the same.
