1. COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course is designed to understand the importance of process modeling and
simulation for chemical process industries as well as process designers, technology
developers, operations research and academic researchers. This subject covers
evolution, logical synthesis, validation and real-life application of an array of steady
state and dynamic process models for chemical processes in conjunction with the
effective application of computer based convergence algorithms.
2. SCOPE AND OBJECTIVE OF THE COURSE
This advanced level course of enormous real-life and industrial importance intends to
prepare chemical engineering students and impart to them the necessary skills for
using process modeling and simulation capabilities for performance and profit
enhancement of chemical processes as well as development of new process systems.
The emphasis in this course will be to understand the fundamentals, algorithms and
logical analysis of process modeling to develop advanced level domain specific
skillsets essential for modern day industries.
