Description

This is  course on Process Simulation will show you how to model, manipulate and report thermodynamic, transport, physical and chemical properties of substances.

You will learn about:

  • Physical Property Environment
  • Physical Property Method & Method Assistant
  • Fluid and Property Packages
  • Physical property input, modeling, estimation and regression
  • Thermodynamic Properties (Material/Energy balances and Thermodynamic Processes)
  • Transport Properties for (Mass/Heat/Momentum Transfer)
  • Equilibrium Properties (Vapor-Liquid, Liquid-Liquid, etc...)
  • Getting Results (Plots, Graphs, Tables)


This is an excellent way to get started with Aspen Plus. Understanding the physical property environment will definitively help you in the simulation and flowsheet creation!

This is a "workshop-based" course, there is about 50% theory and about 50% practice!

Who this course is for:
  • Chemical Engineers
  • Process Engineers
  • Students related to engineering fields
  • Separation Process Engineer
