SIMULATION OF CHEMICAL PROCESSES SUBJECT IN THE CHEMICAL ENGINEERING DEGREE

L. Sanchez-Silva, J.L. Valverde

University of Castilla La Mancha (SPAIN)
The subject Simulation of Chemical Processes is a learning methodology based on the solving of practical cases of chemical industry. At the University of Castilla-La Mancha, this subject has been raised as a nexus of knowledge, orienting towards the analysis of prospective flowsheets using simulators such as ASPEN PLUS, applied to specific cases. This subject is intended for chemical engineering students in their last year, most of whom will have to solve in the future open-ended problems but have not received instruction in a systematic approach to process creation, the use of flowsheet simulators to assist in process design, and the application of economics in venture. The main aim of this subject is that the student learns to utilize modern approaches to process design. Throughout this subject, various methods are utilized to perform the extensive calculations and provide graphical results that are visualized easily, including the use of computer programs for simulation and design optimization. Furthermore, this subject enhances the assimilation of the theoretical knowledge acquired at other subjects, allowing to adapt the Chemical Engineering syllabus to the new teaching scenarios.
