Objective:  Learn the fundamental principles of chemical process simulation.  The course emphasizes core concepts rather  than hands on application.  The morning section of the class will stress mass balances, heat balances, reversible and irreversible flashes, polytropic processes, and chemical equilibrium.  The afternoon session will focus on applications:  control valves, relief valves, two phase separators, and distillation columns.  The simulator to be used is a generic one from the internet.  In this class, the student learns how to use any process simulator (Aspen, Hysys, ChemCad, Pro II, etc)  because he understands the basic principles of chemical process simulation.
