Learn how to model basic Industrial and Chemical Processes!
Instructor:
Chemical Engineering Guy
344 students enrolled
English [Auto-generated]
Model basic chemical processes
Simulate basic industrial processes
Understand the concept of Flowsheet and Manipulate it
Set up the required/basic inputs for a Simulation
Choose the most adequate Method for Physical Properties Modeling
Be able to model the most important/used Unit Operations
Modify all reporting results in order to make analysis

The BASIC Aspen HYSYS Course will show you how to model and simulate Processes (From Petrochemical, to Ammonia Synthesis and Polymerisation). 

Analysis of Unit Operation will help you in order to optimise the Chemical Plant. 

This is helpful for students, teachers, engineers and researchers in the area of R&D and Plant Design/Operation.

The course is didactic, with a lot of applied theory and Workshops/Study cases.

At the end of the course you will be able to setup a simulation, run it, get results and more important, analysis of the process for further optimisation.

Introduction to Process Modeling!

Welcome to the Course!
2
Why Process Modeling/Simulation?

Simulation help engineers to model processes faster, easier and without losing considerable amount of resources such as money and time.

It helps to cover different scenarios in order to optimise existing processes or to design new ones.

It helps process engineer to understand current operation conditions as well.
