Chemical Engineering, General

This Book Shows (A) The Problems Chemical Engineers Have To Solve, (B) The Type Of Programs They Use To Solve Them, And (C) How They Check To Be Sure They Have Solved Them Correctly. This Is Done In The Context Of How Contemporary Students Learn -- Minimal Reading, Just-In-Time Learning (Learn What You Need To Satisfy The Task At Hand), With Lots Of Computer Usage. The Programs Demonstrated Here Are Excel, Matlab, Aspenplus, And Femlab. Each Chemical Engineering Application Chapter Starts With A Description Of The Physical Problem In General Terms. Then Those General Terms Are Put In Mathematical Context So That The Computer Can Represent Them. Then Several Examples Are Given In Which The Problem (Or Similar Problems) Are Solved, Giving The Reader Step-By-Step Instructions. Sometimes The Same Problem Is Solved Using Different Programs To Illustrate The Advantages Of Each Program. Finally, More Complicated Problems Are Usually Given That May Be Used As Homework Problems; They Use The Same Techniques, But The Answer Matters More.
