The subject introduces students to computational packages for simulation of chemical reactors and separation apparatuses and for technological data processing. Calculations are performed using the Matlab package and the Aspen Plus simulator. In the first case the effort is focused on simulations of ideal types of chemical reactors that work in steady or unsteady state. Simulations of unit operations and their combinations are carried out using Aspen Plus.
