Chemical processes in many fields of science and technology, including combustion, atmospheric chemistry, environmental modelling, process engineering, and systems biology, can be described by detailed reaction mechanisms consisting of numerous reaction steps. This book describes methods for the analysis of reaction mechanisms that are applicable in all these fields. Topics addressed include: how sensitivity and uncertainty analyses allow the calculation of the overall uncertainty of simulation results and the identification of the most important input parameters, the ways in which mechanisms can be reduced without losing important kinetic and dynamic detail, and the application of reduced models for more accurate engineering optimizations. This monograph is invaluable for researchers and engineers dealing with detailed reaction mechanisms, but is also useful for graduate students of related courses in chemistry, mechanical engineering, energy and environmental science and biology.
Solve Developed Models in a Numerical FashionDesigned as an introduction to numerical methods for students, A Numerical Primer for the Chemical Engineer explores the role of models in chemical engineering. Combining mathematical correctness (model verification) with numerical performance (model validation), this text concentrates on numerical metho
The book has two aims: to introduce basic concepts of environmental modeling and to facilitate the application of the concepts using modern numerical tools such as MATLAB and FEMLAB. It is targeted at all natural scientists dealing with the environment: process and chemical engineers, physicists, chemists, biologists, biochemists, hydrogeologists, geochemists and ecologists. FEMLAB is a natural complement to MATLAB, as it is a special tool for those tasks which cannot be performed with the basic MATLAB software.
MATLAB� has become one of the prominent languages used in research and industry and often described as "the language of technical computing". The focus of this book will be to highlight the use of MATLAB� in technical computing; or more specifically, in solving problems in Process Simulations. This book aims to bring a practical approach to expounding theories: both numerical aspects of stability and convergence, as well as linear and nonlinear analysis of systems. The book is divided into three parts which are laid out with a "Process Analysis" viewpoint. First part covers system dynamics followed by solution of linear and nonlinear equations, including Differential Algebraic Equations (DAE) while the last part covers function approximation and optimization. Intended to be an advanced level textbook for numerical methods, simulation and analysis of process systems and computational programming lab, it covers following key points � Comprehensive coverage of numerical analyses based on MATLAB for chemical process examples. � Includes analysis of transient behavior of chemical processes. � Discusses coding hygiene, process animation and GUI exclusively. � Treatment of process dynamics, linear stability, nonlinear analysis and function approximation through contemporary examples. � Focus on simulation using MATLAB to solve ODEs and PDEs that are frequently encountered in process systems.
This book highlights the latest research on practical applications of computational biology and bioinformatics, and addresses emerging experimental and sequencing techniques that are posing new challenges for bioinformatics and computational biology. Successfully applying these techniques calls for new algorithms and approaches from fields such as statistics, data mining, machine learning, optimization, computer science, and artificial intelligence. In response to these challenges, we have seen the rise of a new generation of interdisciplinary scientists with a strong background in the biological and computational sciences.These proceedings include 21 papers covering many different subfields of bioinformatics and computational biology. Focusing on interdisciplinary applications that combine e.g. bioinformatics, chemoinformatics, and system biology, they are intended to promote the collaboration of scientists from different research groups and with different backgrounds (computer scientists, mathematicians, biologists) to reach breakthrough solutions and overcome the challenges outlined above.

This book focuses on process simulation in chemical engineering with a numerical algorithm based on the moving finite element method (MFEM). It offers new tools and approaches for modeling and simulating time-dependent problems with moving fronts and with moving boundaries described by time-dependent convection-reaction-diffusion partial differential equations in one or two-dimensional space domains. It provides a comprehensive account of the development of the moving finite element method, describing and analyzing the theoretical and practical aspects of the MFEM for models in 1D, 1D+1d, and 2D space domains. Mathematical models are universal, and the book reviews successful applications of MFEM to solve engineering problems.

A complete, contemporary account of mass transfer operations at the undergraduate level While Mass Transfer Operations is a required course in every undergraduate chemical engineering program in the world, there does not exist a comprehensive text on the subject that is specifically tailored to the undergraduate reader. Principles and Modern Applications of Mass Transfer Operations responds to this need, providing a thorough, accessible text that presents the latest advances in the science as well as sets of targeted questions that challenge students' knowledge. The focus throughout Jaime Benitez's peerless study is on making the student consider computation from the start of a mass transfer dilemma. Twenty-five to thirty problems at the end of each chapter ensure that readers will remain actively engaged with the material. Principles incorporates examples of computational software such as Mathcad 2001, Matlab(r), Mathematica, and Aspen Graphics, and also includes an ftp site that offers problems for each of these software applications as well as a Solutions Manual. Chapters encompass: * Fundamentals of mass transfer * Convective mass transfer * Interphase mass transfer * Equipment for gas-liquid mass transfer operations * Absorption and stripping * Distillation * Liquid-liquid extraction Ideal for a first course in mass transfer operations, this text will also prove valuable to chemical and environmental engineers, researchers, and university faculty.
