Appendix B. Computations Using Process Simulation Software

Performing computations is an integral part of the responsibilities of a chemical engineer, particularly one engaged in the design of process units and plants. Chapters 4 through 9 provided an introduction to some of the problems and illustrated the solution techniques using two different computational tools. It can be understood at this point that a design engineer often faces computational problems that are significantly higher in complexity than those described in this book. For example, the flowsheet of the plant for ammonia synthesis was presented in Chapter 3, “Making of a Chemical Engineer.” Although that flowsheet provided an overview of the complexity of the process, in reality, ...
