Chemical Engineering Computation with MATLAB® presents basic to advanced levels of problem-solving techniques using MATLAB as the computation environment. The PDF ebook provides examples and problems extracted from core chemical engineering subject areas and presents a basic instruction in the use of MATLAB for problem solving. It provides many examples and exercises and extensive problem-solving instruction and solutions for various problems. Solutions are developed using fundamental principles to construct mathematical models and an equation-oriented approach is used to generate numerical results. A wealth of great examples demonstrate the implementation of various problem-solving approaches and methodologies for problem formulation; analysis; problem solving; and presentation; as well as visualization and documentation of results. This ebook also provides aid with advanced problems that are often encountered in graduate research and industrial operations; such as parameter estimation in differential systems; nonlinear regression; two-point boundary value problems and partial differential equations and optimization.
Most problems encountered in chemical engineering are sophisticated and interdisciplinary. Thus; it is important for today’s researchers; engineering students; and professionals to be proficient in the use of software tools for problem solving. MATLAB® is one such tool that is distinguished by the ability to perform calculations in vector-matrix form; a large library of built-in functions; strong structural language; and a rich set of graphical visualization tools. Furthermore; MATLAB integrates visualization; computations; and programming in an intuitive; user-friendly environment.
