Last update: Kubová Petra Ing. (23.02.2018)
The lectures are focused on tutorial of methodology of process design and development. During the exercises the students apply the universal simulation program Aspen Plus in development of simulation model of specific technology and design of apparatus.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Kubová Petra Ing. (23.02.2018)

Students will be able to:

  • define the suitable apparatuses and unit operations needed for industrial process implementation
  • define the key parameters of apparatuses, necessary for optimal functionality of process
  • apply the Aspen Plus software in simulation of chemical technologies
