This subject is an introduction to the field of universal simulation programs applicable in design of new chemical processes in putting the accent on practical use of existing software. The problem-oriented approach is applied in this subject, i.e. the student will solve the balance and simulation tasks arising in the description of behaviour of technological units and their systems using universal simulation software (Aspen Plus).

Students will be able to:

  • apply the advanced functions of program EXCEL solving the basic chemical engineering tasks
  • develop the mass balance schema of process on the base of technological schema
  • apply the Aspen Plus software in simulation of chemical technologies
