Book Description :

This book treats modeling and simulation in a simple way, that builds on the existing knowledge and intuition of students. They will learn how to build a model and solve it using Excel. Most chemical engineering students feel a shiver down the spine when they see a set of complex mathematical equations generated from the modeling of a chemical engineering system. This is because they usually do not understand how to achieve this mathematical model, or they do not know how to solve the equations system without spending a lot of time and effort. Trying to understand how to generate a set of mathematical equations to represent a physical system (to model) and solve these equations (to simulate) is not a simple task. A model, most of the time, takes into account all phenomena studied during a Chemical Engineering course. In the same way, there is a multitude of numerical methods that can be used to solve the same set of equations generated from the modeling, and many different computational languages can be adopted to implement the numerical methods. As a consequence of this comprehensiveness and combinatorial explosion of possibilities, most books that deal with this subject are very extensive and embracing, making need for a lot of time and effort to go through this subject. It is expected that with this book the chemical engineering student and the future chemical engineer feel motivated to solve different practical problems involving chemical processes, knowing they can do that in an easy and fast way, with no need of expensive software.

Book Description :

The document "Chemical Process Simulation and the Aspen HYSYS Software", Version 7.3, is a self-paced instructional manual that aids students in learning how to use a chemical process simulator and how a process simulator models material balances, phase equilibria, and energy balances for chemical process units. The student learning is driven by the development of the material and energy requirements for a specific chemical process flowsheet. This semester-long, problem-based learning activity is intended to be a student-based independent study, with about two-hour support provided once a week by a student teaching assistant to answer any questions.Chapter 1 of this HYSYS manual provides an overview of the problem assignment to make styrene monomer from toluene and methanol. Chapter 2 presents ten tutorials to introduce the student to the HYSYS simulation software. The first six of these tutorials can be completed in a two-week period for the introductory chemical engineering course. The other four are intended for the senior-level design course. Chapter 3 provides five assignments to develop the student's abilities and confidence to simulate individual process units using HYSYS. These five assignments can be completed over a three-week period. Chapter 4 contains seven assignments to develop the styrene monomer flowsheet. These seven assignments can be completed over a seven-week period. In Chapter 4, each member of a four-member team begins with the process reactor unit for a specifically-assigned temperature, molar conversion, and yield. Subsequent assignments increase the complexity of the flowsheet by adding process units, one by one, until the complete flowsheet with recycle is simulated in HYSYS. The team's objective is to determine the operating temperature for the reactor, such that the net profit is maximized before considering federal taxes. Finally, eleven appendices provide mathematical explanations of how HYSYS does its calculations for various process units-process stream, stream tee, stream mixer, pump, valve, heater/cooler, chemical reactor, two-phase separator, three-phase separator, component splitter, and simple distillation.This HYSYS manual can be used with most textbooks for the introductory course on chemical engineering, like Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes (Felder and Rousseau, 2005), Basic Principles and Calculations in Chemical Engineering (Himmelblau and Riggs, 2004), or Introduction to Chemical Processes: Principles, Analysis, Synthesis (Murphy, 2007). It can also be used as a refresher for chemical engineering seniors in their process engineering design course.

Book Description :

The use of simulation plays a vital part in developing an integrated approach to process design. By helping save time and money before the actual trial of a concept, this practice can assist with troubleshooting, design, control, revamping, and more. Process Modelling and Simulation in Chemical, Biochemical and Environmental Engineering explores effective modeling and simulation approaches for solving equations. Using a systematic treatment of model development and simulation studies for chemical, biochemical, and environmental processes, this book explains the simplification of a complicated process at various levels with the help of a "model sketch." It introduces several types of models, examines how they are developed, and provides examples from a wide range of applications. This includes the simple models based on simple laws such as Fick’s law, models that consist of generalized equations such as equations of motion, discrete-event models and stochastic models (which consider at least one variable as a discrete variable), and models based on population balance. Divided into 11 chapters, this book: Presents a systematic approach of model development in view of the simulation need Includes modeling techniques to model hydrodynamics, mass and heat transfer, and reactors for single as well as multi-phase systems Provides stochastic and population balance models Covers the application and development of artificial neural network models and hybrid ANN models Highlights gradients based techniques as well as statistical techniques for model validation and sensitivity analysis Contains examples on development of analytical, stochastic, numerical, and ANN-based models and simulation studies using them Illustrates modeling concepts with a wide spectrum of classical as well as recent research papers Process Modelling and Simulation in Chemical, Biochemical and Environmental Engineering includes recent trends in modeling and simulation, e.g. artificial neural network (ANN)-based models, and hybrid models. It contains a chapter on flowsheeting and batch processes using commercial/open source software for simulation.

Book Description :

Process Modelling and simulation have proved to be extremely successful engineering tools for the design and optimisation of physical, chemical and biochemical processes. The use of simulation has expanded rapidly over the last two decades because of the availability of large high-speed computers and indeed has become even more widespread with the rise of the desk-top PC resources now available to nearly every engineer and student. In the chemical industry large, realistic non-linear problems are routinely solved with the aid of computer simulation. This has a number of benefits, including easy assessment of the economic desirability of a project, convenient investigation of the effects of changes to system variables, and finally the introduction of mathematical rigour into the design process and inherent assumptions that may not have been there before. Computational Methods for Process Simulation develops the methods needed for the simulation of real processes to be found in the process industries. It also stresses the engineering fundamentals used in developing process models. Steady state and dynamic systems are considered, for both spatially lumped and spatially distributed problems. It develops analytical and numerical computational techniques for algebraic, ordinary and partial differential equations, and makes use of computer software routines that are widely available. Dedicated software examples are available via the internet. Written for a compulsory course element in the US Includes examples using software used in academia and industry Software available via the Internet
