A Review on Computer Application in Chemical Engineering: A Brief Insight

Authors(1) :-Sunil Jayant Kulkarni

Chemical engineering subjects like reaction engineering, transport phenomenon, mass transfer and optimization contain very rigorous numerical and analytical data and equations. Many times the calculation from the equations and actual practical results are verified for consistency. Solving these equations manually is time-consuming and impractical. Many software tools are available for solving these problems. Unisim, MATLAB, Simulink, HYYS are few such tools. Simulation and optimization of the data can be carried out by using the mathematical concepts combined with these tools. The current review summarizes research and studies on the application of computer and software in chemical engineering practice and teaching.
