Introduction to Chemical Engineering Analysis

Introduction to Chemical Engineering Analysis introduces the use of mass and energy balances to analyze chemical processes and products. You will learn how to prepare and analyze conceptual flowsheets for chemical processes, perform generation-consumption analysis, and perform basic engineering calculations for stoichiometry, reactor performance, separations, and energy analysis. This course prepares students for coursework in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

The following notebooks illustrate computational methods for chemical engineering analysis. These are primarily in the form of Jupyter/Python notebooks along with some older Matlab materials. You will need a current distribution of Python, such as the excellect Anaconda distribution avaiable at no cost from Continuum Analytics, to execute the notebooks. These materials were recently updated for Python 3.
