Overview

An Introduction to Numerical Methods for Chemical Engineers (2nd Ed.) / Edition 2

In this second edition of An Introduction to Numerical Methods for Chemical Engineers the author has revised text, added new problems, and updated the accompanying computer programs. The result is a text that puts students on the cutting-edge of solving relevant chemical engineering problems.Designed explicitly for undergraduates, this book provides students with software and experience to solve a number of problems.Included in the text are:Numerical algorithms in explicit detail. Example problems from thermodynamic, fluid flow, heat transfer, mass transfer, kinetics, and process design. Equations developed specifically for the student from the example problems. An introduction to advanced numerical techniques, such as finite elements, singular value decomposition, and arc length homotopy. An introduction to optimization. A systematic approach to process modeling presented with advanced modeling examples. The software that accompanies the book is for IBM-compatible PCs. A solution manual is also available upon request.An Introduction to Numerical Methods for Chemical Engineers was first published in 1988 and has been taught in universities throughout the nation.
