Chemical Engineering Process Simulation, Second Edition guides users through chemical processes and unit operations using the main simulation software used in the industrial sector. The book helps predict the characteristics of a process using mathematical models and computer-aided process simulation tools, as well as how to model and simulate process performance before detailed process design takes place. Content coverage includes steady-state and dynamic simulation, process design, control and optimization. In addition, readers will learn about the simulation of natural gas, biochemical, wastewater treatment and batch processes.
