Description - Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing, Second Edition (Update) by Bruce A. Finlayson
Step-by-step instructions enable chemical engineers to master
key software programs and solve complex problems
Today, both students and professionals in chemical engineering
must solve increasingly complex problems dealing with refineries,
fuel cells, microreactors, and pharmaceutical plants, to name a
few. With this book as their guide, readers learn to solve these
problems using their computers and Excel, MATLAB, Aspen Plus, and
COMSOL Multiphysics. Moreover, they learn how to check their
solutions and validate their results to make sure they have solved
the problems correctly.
Now in its Second Edition, Introduction to Chemical
Engineering Computing is based on the author?s firsthand
teaching experience. As a result, the emphasis is on problem
solving. Simple introductions help readers become conversant with
each program and then tackle a broad range of problems in chemical
Equations of state
Chemical reaction equilibria
Mass balances with recycle streams
Thermodynamics and simulation of mass transfer equipment
Fluid flow in two and three dimensions
All the chapters contain clear instructions, figures, and
examples to guide readers through all the programs and types of
chemical engineering problems. Problems at the end of each chapter,
ranging from simple to difficult, allow readers to gradually build
their skills, whether they solve the problems themselves or in
teams. In addition, the book?s accompanying website lists the
core principles learned from each problem, both from a chemical
engineering and a computational perspective.
Covering a broad range of disciplines and problems within
chemical engineering, Introduction to Chemical Engineering
Computing is recommended for both undergraduate and graduate
students as well as practicing engineers who want to know how to
choose the right computer software program and tackle almost any
chemical engineering problem.
