Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to independently use process simulation tools (flowsheeting tools) to solve chemical engineering tasks related to current research projects.

Subject of course

Solving of current chemical engineering tasks using industrial process simulation tools (flowsheeting tools). Designing and setting up of a simulation model based on a process description. Elaboration of relevant process parametrs (literature, short-cut methods, experimental data). Calculation of mass and energy balances of process. Investigation of effect of recycle streams on process performance and convergence behavior of model. Enhancing knowledge and use of software features as sensitivity analysis, case studies, design specification or calculator blocks.

Teaching methods

Computer simulation (flowheeting simulation) of chemical processes.
