Chapter 13 Synthesis of a Process Using a Simulator and Simulator Troubleshooting

The advancement in computer-aided process simulation over the past generation has been nothing short of spectacular. Until the late 1970s, it was rare for a graduating chemical engineer to have any experience in using a chemical process simulator. Most material and energy balances were still done by hand by teams of engineers. The rigorous simulation of multistaged separation equipment and complicated reactors was generally unheard of, and the design of such equipment was achieved by a combination of simplified analyses, shortcut methods, and years of experience. In the present day, however, companies now expect their junior engineers to be conversant with ...
