The chemical engineer has to deal with various interdisciplinary subjects such as mechanical engineering, environmental engineering, biotechnology etc. Many important subjects such as mass transfer, heat transfer, process engineering and fluid flow operations involve time consuming and rigorous computations. The equations in heat and material balance, sand transport phenomena in non-stationary conditions are mostly having non analytical solutions. Also many experimental methods can be made more interesting and easy to understand by using innovative and different teaching methods. Software like MATLAB, virtual laboratory can be a great help in understanding the chemical engineering concepts.
Key words: Software, simulation, parameters, design, virtual labs, experimental design.[PDF Full Text]
