Chemical Engineering (CH E)

CH E 360 Mathematical Modeling in Chemical Engineering (3) Mathematical model formulation for chemical and physical processes, including applications of ordinary differential equations and numerical methods.

CH E 360 Mathematical Modeling in Chemical Engineering (3)

This course covers the applied mathematical techniques necessary for the simulation of physical and chemical processes such as mass transfer and reacting systems, and the analysis of process dynamics. In the former area, the formulation of ordinary differential equations for a variety of situations of interest to chemical engineers is considered. Numerical methods and mathematical packages that form the basis for computer simulations are emphasized. In the latter area, the notions of steady-state, stability and controllability are introduced. The tools discussed in this course are used in subsequent courses on the analysis and design of chemical reactors and mass transfer processes.
