Name: Chemical Engineering Laboratory (Modeling and Simulation lab)

Lab Description:The objective of the lab is to introduce students to solving process simulation problems using different software’s. A basic background in Numerical Methods and Chemical Engineering is expected, though all the key concepts required for the lab will be reviewed during the course of the semester. The first part of this course will focus on MATLAB, which is a powerful language for engineering applications. Starting with basics of MATLAB, we will review key computational techniques relevant to MATLAB functions and use them for simulation and analysis. The second part will cover process simulation using the UNISIM/COCO/DWSIM/ChemSep/Aspen-Plus package, which is an industry standard for process simulations. This involves introducing key features of Aspen-Plus package, including property estimation, flow-sheeting, and process design.
