Download Process Modelling and Simulation With Finite Element Methods by William B. J. Zimmerman PDF

By William B. J. Zimmerman

This booklet provides a scientific description and case reviews of chemical engineering modelling and simulation in keeping with the MATLAB/FEMLAB instruments, in aid of chosen issues in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that require numerical answer of advanced stability equations (ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, nonlinear equations, integro-differential equations). those platforms come up evidently in research of shipping phenomena, strategy structures, chemical reactions and chemical thermodynamics, and particle fee methods. Templates are given for modelling either cutting-edge learn issues (e.g. microfluidic networks, movie drying, multiphase stream, inhabitants stability equations) and case reports of regular layout calculations - combined section reactor layout, warmth move, flowsheet research of unit operations, flash distillations, and so on. the good power of this e-book is that it makes modelling and simulating within the MATLAB/FEMLAB atmosphere approachable to either the amateur and the specialist modeller.
