Description

Mathematical Modeling and Analysis of Chemical Engineering Processes is written as a guide for those new to mathematical modeling, to learn to use mathematics as a problem-solving tool. It directly approaches modeling of processes together with the mathematical methods for their solution. The focus of this book is on translating a physical description of a situation into an ordinary or partial differential equation, which is a skill that will help you to approach problems throughout your career in engineering. This book will assist you in the proper selection and use of dedicated numerical methods to model, simulate and characterize chemical systems. It gives also the foundations for the modeling criteria to be adopted for effective solutions. Applications also play a relevant role since they show in practice the use of models and tools. Phenomena and numerical methods are described from their bases in an applied and accessible style. The applications in the appendix are consistent with data, information, methods, and results so as to allow you to completely reproduce what you learn h
