10.34 Numerical Methods Applied to Chemical Engineering

Numerical methods for solving problems arising in heat and mass transfer, fluid mechanics, chemical reaction engineering, and molecular simulation. Topics: numerical linear algebra, solution of nonlinear algebraic equations and ordinary differential equations, solution of partial differential equations (e.g. Navier-Stokes), numerical methods in molecular simulation (dynamics, geometry optimization). All methods are presented within the context of chemical engineering problems. Familiarity with structured programming is assumed. The examples will use MATLAB®. Acknowledgements The instructor would like to thank Robert Ashcraft, Sandeep Sharma, David Weingeist, and Nikolay Zaborenko for their work in preparing materials for this course site.

I have used a previous version of this material in delivering a similar course in my college. This updated version has many additional content that made the material more comprehensive and more useful to users. I recommend this site to chemical engineering students and faculty who are interested in computational techniques of solving engineering problems
