Description


Most problems encountered in chemical engineering are sophisticated and interdisciplinary. Thus, it is important for today's engineering students, researchers, and professionals to be proficient in the use of software tools for problem solving. MATLAB(R) is one such tool that is distinguished by the ability to perform calculations in vector-matrix form, a large library of built-in functions, strong structural language, and a rich set of graphical visualization tools. Furthermore, MATLAB integrates computations, visualization and programming in an intuitive, user-friendly environment.

Chemical Engineering Computation with MATLAB(R) presents basic to advanced levels of problem-solving techniques using MATLAB as the computation environment. The book provides examples and problems extracted from core chemical engineering subject areas and presents a basic instruction in the use of MATLAB for problem solving. It provides many examples and exercises and extensive problem-solving instruction and solutions for various problems. Solutions are developed using fundamental principles to construct mathematical models and an equation-oriented approach is used to generate numerical results. A wealth of examples demonstrate the implementation of various problem-solving approaches and methodologies for problem formulation, problem solving, analysis, and presentation, as well as visualization and documentation of results. This book also provides aid with advanced problems that are often encountered in graduate research and industrial operations, such as nonlinear regression, parameter estimation in differential systems, two-point boundary value problems and partial differential equations and optimization.

About the Author


Professor Yeong Koo Yeo teaches Chemical Engineering at the College of Engineering of Hanyang University. He received a B.A. (1979) and an M.S. (1982) in Chemical Engineering from Seoul National University and a Ph.D. (1986) in Chemical Engineering from Auburn University. Before joining the Hanyang faculty in 1993, Professor Yeo had been a senior researcher at KIST. He has taught various courses such as Process Control, Plant Design, Process Analysis, Optimization, Computational Process Design and Model Predictive Control. Professor Yeo, a leading authority on process control and application of MATLAB, is the author of 4 books. His book Introduction and Application of MATLAB (2009) has played a key role in establishing technical computing as an important field. Modern Process Control Engineering (2010) has played a key role in establishing practical control education. Prof. Yeo has also authored more than 108 articles in leading academic journals such as Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research, Japanese Journal of Chemical Engineering, Korean Journal of Chemical Engineering , and Hwahak Gonhak . His research interests include process control, process modeling and simulation, process artificial intelligence, and process optimization.
