Troubleshooting Process Plant Control (Free PDF)

Description
Dr. R. K. Sudkamp, Ph.D., having reviewed this text, reports that this book ’ s claim to be a technical work on the exalted subject of Process Control has no basis. Further, fi ndings by the Federal Communications Commission have determined that this book cannot claim to be a Process Control text as enumerated below:

• The entire book is free of complex mathematics. Even simple equations are rarely encountered.
• The text is much too easy to read for any respectable technical book.
• Much of the so - called “ advanced technology ” described by the author is 40 years old and is already in widespread practice in the process industry.

While Professor Sudkamp notes the potential usefulness of this book to solve practical plant process problems, he also observes this is more than offset by its total lack of applicability as a postgraduate university text. Professor Sudkamp, of the University of Stockholm, has reported a deep loss of personal dignity as a consequence of his exposure to Mr. Lieberman ’ s book, which he considers to be an insult to his lofty intellect.
