Aspen Plus is one of the most popular process simulation software programs used industrially and academically. The book is designed to enable chemical engineers to go through a step-by-step process of learning the basic ideas underlying chemical process simulation, by studying the primary functions of the Aspen Plus software. Because of the major changes Aspen Technology has made in the user’s interface in release 8.x, parts of the first edition which is based on release 7.x have become obsolete. However much of the scientific and engineering material has not changed; for example the material describing the distillation modules is completely suitable for self-study however some of the displays have changed. New chapters include Equation-Oriented Simulation, Electrolytes, and an appendix on The NIST Thermo Data Engine as a data source. Each chapter starts with the equivalent of a classroom lecture followed by workshops which provide experience in the chapter's subject matter. The downloadable files contain solutions, both in Aspen Plus and text formats, to examples imbedded in the text as well as to all the workshops. There are also notes at the end of each chapter designed to aid readers that have difficulty with the workshops.

Stochastic Process Optimization using Aspen® Plus Bookshop Category: Chemical Engineering Optimization can be simply defined as "choosing the best alternative among a set of feasible options". In all the engineering areas, optimization has a wide range of applications, due to the high number of decisions involved in an engineering environment. Chemical engineering, and particularly process engineering, is not an exception; thus stochastic methods are a good option to solve optimization problems for the complex process engineering models. In this book, the combined use of the modular simulator Aspen® Plus and stochastic optimization methods, codified in MATLAB, is presented. Some basic concepts of optimization are first presented, then, strategies to use the simulator linked with the optimization algorithm are shown. Finally, examples of application for process engineering are discussed. The reader will learn how to link the process simulator Aspen® Plus and stochastic optimization algorithms to solve process design problems. They will gain ability to perform multi-objective optimization in several case studies. Key Features: • The book links simulation and optimization through numerical analyses and stochastic optimization techniques • Includes use of examples to illustrate the application of the concepts and specific guidance on the use of software (Aspen® Plus, Excel, MATLB) to set up and solve models representing complex problems. • Illustrates several examples of applications for the linking of simulation and optimization software with other packages for optimization purposes. • Provides specific information on how to implement stochastic optimization with process simulators. • Enable readers to identify practical and economic solutions to problems of industrial relevance, enhancing the safety, operation, environmental, and economic performance of chemical processes.

The new edition of this book greatly updates and expands the previous edition. It boasts new chapters on the divided wall column and carbon dioxide capture from stack gas, revises the design and control of distillation systems, and explains the use of dynamic simulation to study safety issues in the event of operating failures. Using Aspen Plus to develop rigorous simulations of single distillation columns and sequences of columns, the book considers the economics of capital investment and energy costs to create an optimal system for separation methods in the chemical and petroleum industries.

Solving the model structure with a large equation set becomes a challenging task due to the involvement of several complex processes in an industrial plant. To overcome these challenges, various process flow sheet simulators are used. This book, now in its second edition, continues to discuss the simulation, optimization, dynamics and closed-loop control of a wide variety of chemical processes using the most popular commercial flow sheet simulator ASPENTM. A large variety of chemical units including flash drum, continuous stirred tank reactor, plug flow reactor, petroleum refining column, heat exchanger, absorption tower, reactive distillation, distillation train, and monomer production unit are thoroughly explained. The book acquaints the students with the simulation of large chemical plants with several single process units. With the addition of the new sections, additional information and plenty of illustrations and exercises, this text should prove extremely useful for the students. Designed for the students of chemical engineering at the senior under-graduate and postgraduate level, this book will also be helpful to research scientists and practising engineers as a handy guide to simulation of chemical processes. NEW TO THIS EDITION : Section 1.3 on Stepwise Aspen Plus Simulation of Flash Drums is thoroughly updated (Chapter 1) Section 3.2 on Aspen Plus Simulation of the Binary Distillation Columns is updated, a new section on Simulation of a Reactive Distillation Column is added (Section 3.6), and a new topic on Column Sizing is introduced (Chapter 3) A new section on Aspen Simulation of a Petlyuk Column with Streams Recycling is included (Chapter 4)

Step-by-step instructions enable chemical engineers to master key software programs and solve complex problems Today, both students and professionals in chemical engineering must solve increasingly complex problems dealing with refineries, fuel cells, microreactors, and pharmaceutical plants, to name a few. With this book as their guide, readers learn to solve these problems using their computers and Excel, MATLAB, Aspen Plus, and COMSOL Multiphysics. Moreover, they learn how to check their solutions and validate their results to make sure they have solved the problems correctly. Now in its Second Edition, Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing is based on the author’s firsthand teaching experience. As a result, the emphasis is on problem solving. Simple introductions help readers become conversant with each program and then tackle a broad range of problems in chemical engineering, including: Equations of state Chemical reaction equilibria Mass balances with recycle streams Thermodynamics and simulation of mass transfer equipment Process simulation Fluid flow in two and three dimensions All the chapters contain clear instructions, figures, and examples to guide readers through all the programs and types of chemical engineering problems. Problems at the end of each chapter, ranging from simple to difficult, allow readers to gradually build their skills, whether they solve the problems themselves or in teams. In addition, the book’s accompanying website lists the core principles learned from each problem, both from a chemical engineering and a computational perspective. Covering a broad range of disciplines and problems within chemical engineering, Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing is recommended for both undergraduate and graduate students as well as practicing engineers who want to know how to choose the right computer software program and tackle almost any chemical engineering problem.
