Aims and Objectives

The main aim of this course module is to introduce the basic concepts of mathematical modelling, as used by process engineers to simulate and optimise chemical and process engineering systems.

The course will provide some experience in the construction and solution of models for steady state and dynamic simulation, and in the optimisation of single and multi-variable systems. It is not intended to produce specialist modellers, but to develop an understanding of the processes of model building and solution to enable students to interact more effectively with such specialists.

The module objectives are as follows:
