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 and dynamic simulations, the similarities and differences between process simulators, an introduction to operating units, and convergence tips and tricks. In addition, readers will learn about the use of simulation for risk studies to enhance process resilience, fault finding in abnormal situations, and for training operators to control the process in difficult situations.
