Solving a Binary Batch Distillation – Programming Approach

Plan your solution: Draw a picture, in this case, list all of your data Remember the fundamentals and apply Draw your material or energy balance envelope (If necessary, list out your equations and problem data) Remember [Accumulation = In – Out + Source/Sink] Think about what you need to do and the answer you want […]

Fitting Polynomials and Correlation Equations to Vapor Pressure Data – Problem Description

Reference: This is Problem 3 in the ASEE 1997 problem set.   We will be fitting vapor pressure data for benzene to  a polynomial and then to a couple of correlating equations. Concepts: Put the data into arrays so that we can work with it Use Ipython with Scite editor to edit and save files Import […]

Dynamics of a Heated Tank with Proportional/Integral (PI) Control – Programming Approach

Plan your solution: Draw a picture, in this case, list all of your data and equations Remember the fundamentals (material and energy balances, equations of state) and apply Draw your material or energy balance envelope (Proportional/Integral Contoller) Remember [Accumulation = In – Out + Source/Sink] Think about what you need to do and the answer […]

Reversible, Exothermic, Gas Phase Reaction in a Catalytic Reactor – Programming Approach

Plan your solution: Draw a picture, in this case, list all of your data and equations Remember the fundamentals (material and energy balances, equations of state) and apply Draw your material or energy balance envelope (catalytic reactor) Remember [Accumulation = In – Out + Source/Sink] Think about what you need to do and the answer […]

Reversible, Exothermic, Gas Phase Reaction in a Catalytic Reactor – Problem Description

Reference: This is problem 8.24 in “Problem Solving in Chemical Engineering with Numerical Methods” by Michael Cutlip and Mordecai Shacham, Prentice-Hall ISBN 0-13-862566-2.  In this problem, you will be designing a gas phase catalytic reactor with a pressure drop to accomplish a reversible gas phase reaction. Concepts: Solve a system of ordinary differential equations with […]
