Chemical Engineering Computation with MATLAB 1st Edition Pdf Book Description:
This book focuses on the presentation of problem-solving techniques in the main subject areas of chemical engineering. Basics to advanced levels of problem solving are covered utilizing MATLAB®, which is a high performance language for technical computing. This book provides numerous examples and exercises, as well as extensive problem-solving instruction and solutions, for various chemical engineering problems. Solutions are developed using fundamental principles to construct mathematical models, and an equation-oriented approach is used to generate numerical results. For efficient problem solving, various numerical methods including linear and nonlinear algebraic equations, finite difference methods, ordinary differential equations, boundary value problems, partial differential equations, curve fitting, and linear and nonlinear regressions are employed in the examples. Most problems encountered in chemical engineering are very sophisticated and interdisciplinary. Thus, calculations for chemical engineering problem solving by portable calculators or hand calculations are limited only to a few simple applications and problems. Since the introduction of personal computers and mathematical software packages in the early 1980s, emphasis has gradually shifted to computer-based problem solving. And it is increasingly becoming important for today’s engineering students, researchers, and professionals to be proficient in the use of software tools for problem solving.
MATLAB is one such tool that has been found suitable for implementing algorithms required in engineering education, graduate research, advanced mathematics, and industrial operation–aid systems. It is distinguished by its ability to perform calculations in a vector–matrix form, a large library of built-in functions, strong structural language, and a rich set of graphical visualization tools. Furthermore, MATLAB integrates computations, visualization, and programming in an intuitive, user-friendly environment. These useful features of MATLAB can be effectively applied in chemical engineering problem solving activities. Examples and problems introduced in this book demonstrate how some of these special capabilities of MATLAB can be best used for effective and efficient problem solving. This book is designed for chemical engineering students and industrial professionals. MATLAB is adopted as the computation environment throughout this book. This book provides examples and problems extracted from core chemical engineering subject areas and presents a basic instruction in the use of MATLAB for problem solving. Emphasis is placed on setting up problems systematically and obtaining required solutions efficiently. Additionally, since this book presents examples and problems commonly encountered in most chemical engineering subject areas, it can serve as a reference in various scenarios and environments.
