Neural networks have received a great deal of attention among scientists and engineers. In chemical engineering, neural computing has moved from pioneering projects toward mainstream industrial applications. This book introduces the fundamental principles of neural computing, and is the first to focus on its practical applications in bioprocessing and chemical engineering. Examples, problems, and 10 detailed case studies demonstrate how to develop, train, and apply neural networks. A disk containing input data files for all illustrative examples, case studies, and practice problems provides the opportunity for hands-on experience. An important goal of the book is to help the student or practitioner learn and implement neural networks quickly and inexpensively using commercially available, PC-based software tools. Detailed network specifications and training procedures are included for all neural network examples discussed in the book. Each chapter contains an introduction, chapter summary, references to further reading, practice problems, and a section on nomenclature Includes a PC-compatible disk containing input data files for examples, case studies, and practice problems Presents 10 detailed case studies Contains an extensive glossary, explaining terminology used in neural network applications in science and engineering Provides examples, problems, and ten detailed case studies of neural computing applications, including: Process fault-diagnosis of a chemical reactor Leonard Kramer fault-classification problem Process fault-diagnosis for an unsteady-state continuous stirred-tank reactor system Classification of protein secondary-structure categories Quantitative prediction and regression analysis of complex chemical kinetics Software-based sensors for quantitative predictions of product compositions from flourescent spectra in bioprocessing Quality control and optimization of an autoclave curing process for manufacturing composite materials Predictive modeling of an experimental batch fermentation process Supervisory control of the Tennessee Eastman plantwide control problem Predictive modeling and optimal design of extractive bioseparation in aqueous two-phase systems0 A Singapore firm, NIBS Pte Ltd., has developed a financial neural network program, NeuroForecaster, that provides strategic ...
