Overview

--A great companion book including interactive software for students and professional engineers who want to utilize problem solving software to effectively and efficiently obtain solutions to realistic and complex problems.

--An invaluable reference book that discusses and illustrates practical numerical problem solving in the core subject areas of Chemical Engineering.

Problem Solving in Chemical Engineering with Numerical Methods provides an extensive selection of problems that require numerical solutions from throughout the core subject areas of chemical engineering. Many are completely solved or partially solved using POLYMATH(c) as the representative mathematical problem-solving software. Selective problems solved by Excel™ and MATLAB™. Ten representative problems are also solved by Excel, Maple™, Mathcad™, MATLAB, and Mathematica™.

Practical numerical analysis techniques discussed and applied include:

  • curve fitting by polynomials and cubic splines with statistical analysis
  • linear regression and nonlinear regression with statistical analysis
  • simultaneous nonlinear equations
  • simultaneous ordinary differential equations (including stiff systems)
  • differential-algebraic equation systems
  • partial differential equations (using the numerical method of lines)

Topical areas are organized by chapter

  • Basic Principles and Calculations
  • Regression and Correlation of Data
  • Advanced Techniques in Problem Solving
  • Thermodynamics
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Heat Transfer
  • Mass Transfer
  • Chemical Reaction Engineering

All problems are clearly organized and all necessary data are provided. Key equations are presented or derived. Practical aspects of efficient and effective numerical problem solving are emphasized. Many complete solutions are provided within the text.

Companion web site provides:

  • Extensive selection of complete or partial solutions to book problems that utilize POLYMATH, Excel, and MATLAB.
  • Detailed writeups of ten problem solutions by knowledgeable professionals that utilize Excel, Maple, Mathcad, MATLAB, Mathematica, and POLYMATH and includes all particular program solution files.
  • Access to a specially priced version of an educational version of POLYMATH that can be installed on personal computers with any Windows™ operating system.
