Chapter 6. Steady-State Process Modelling
This chapter covers the basic principles of steady state modelling and simulation using a number of case studies. Two principal approaches are illustrated that develop the unit operation models from first principles as well as through application of standard flowsheet simulators. The approaches illustrate the “equation oriented” approach as well as the “sequential modular” approach to solving complex flowsheets for steady state applications.
The applications include the Williams-Otto plant, the hydrodealkylation (HDA) of toluene, conversion of ethylene to ethanol and a bio-ethanol process.
