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.
