ASPEN PLUS MASTERCLASS - FULL COURSE DESCRIPTION :

Aspen Plus is a powerful engineering simulation software that you can use to model a wide range of chemical processes.

It is widely used in engineering universities and in the industry, in research, development, modeling and design.

Aspen Plus serves as the engineering platform for modeling processes from Upstream through Gas Processing to Petroleum Refining, Petrochemicals, Chemicals and Pharmaceutical processes.

Online courses about Aspen Plus are difficult to find and when you find them they are either expensive or not professional.

This unique online course is designed around a series of chemical process examples which we work through to a model solution. It is an essential guide to understanding the principles, features and functions of Aspen Plus. This understanding is a prerequisite for a successful design, simulation, rating & optimization of your plant and process equipment.

This unique online course leads you through a process that becomes continuously more difficult, challenging and enriching. When the course content and practice sessions have been completed, we expect that you will have become a competent and advanced user of Aspen Plus.

The course is built with over 9 sections, each tackling a different chemical process and a different aspect of Aspen Plus :

  1. Introducing Aspen Plus

  2. Flash Separation & Distillation Columns

  3. Liquid-Liquid Extraction processes

  4. Heat Exchangers

  5. Piping Systems

  6. Chemical Reactors

  7. Solids Handling processes

  8. Aspen Plus Model Analysis Tools

  9. Aspen Plus Safety Analysis Environment (Bonus section)

The first section explains the basic structure of the software and leads you through a hands-on introduction to the various features of Aspen Plus, designed to facilitate the set up of simple problems.

Features such as the material balance, access to Aspen Plus documentation, the “Next” button, menu navigation, Properties and simulation environments, and the report function are introduced.

The remainder of the course is organized in a series of sections that focus on particular types of operations and processes, for example : chemical reactors, heat exchangers or piping systems.

Each section describes the process being modeled, the way it is modeled, the equations being solved, the various limitations, the potential sources of error, and a set of workshops containing exercises that you should solve to gain experience with the particular subject.

So in just about 14 hours, this unique online course will make you an advanced Aspen Plus user and you will learn how to :

  • Build, navigate and optimize steady state simulation models using Aspen Plus

  • Utilize a wide variety of unit operation models and calculation tools to model your process equipment such as distilling columns, reactors, pumps, compressors and piping systems just to name a few

  • Then Evaluate the performance of your existing equipment by leveraging the equipment rating capabilities of Aspen Plus

  • Perform Case Studies to determine the optimum operating points for your process

  • Use the Model Analysis Tools to run sensitivity analysis and optimize your process

  • And finally Use Aspen Plus in thermodynamics instruction for property analysis of pure components and mixtures

The knowledge gained in this course will set you apart from your peers, whether you are a graduate student, a practicing chemical engineer, or a manager, and will give you an edge over your competitors when seeking employment at industrial facilities.

So with no further ado, check out the free preview videos and the curriculum of the course and we look forward to seeing you in the first section.

Hope to see you there

IMPORTANT NOTES :

This course is built with over 9 sections, each tackling a different chemical process and a different aspect of Aspen Plus. Feel free to jump to the sections that most interest you especially if you're a little bit more advanced. If you're starting from scratch or even if you're not, we do highly recommend starting from the beginning.

Aspen Plus is a complex process simulator and, in our opinion, the best way to learn is with hands-on experience, by attempting each example provided in this online course, and when difficulties are encountered, by referring to the problem setup and solution that you can find in the downloadable resource section.

The downloadable resources contain the input and solutions to all of the examples and workshops covered in this online course. There is a root folder for each section, within which, there are subfolders named Examples. Each example is provided in .bkp Aspen Plus format and .txt format. The .bkp files are set up as input files to view details and may be executed. The .txt files are solutions and may be viewed with Notepad. We recommend that while reading the text, Aspen Plus be used simultaneously to execute and review each example.

Lastly, we have made an effort to provide the describing equations of most of the models referred to in this online course and if not possible, because of the proprietary nature of the software, we have described the functionality. Please keep in mind that Aspen Plus is a proprietary software and the source code and implementation details are not available. Additionally, there are frequently several ways to solve the equations that describe the blocks, and there is no way to ascertain these details since Aspen Technology does not provide them.

------------------------------

SOFTWARE & HARDWARE :

The Aspen Plus software, like most other software, is being developed on a continuous basis and new versions are released frequently. This online course covers Aspen Plus version 11, which is the most recent version at the moment we recorded this video. Please keep in mind that this online course covers the fundamental features of Aspen Plus which do not change from version to version. The course covers the use of Aspen Plus on computers that use the Windows operating system. We assume that Aspen Plus is installed on your computer and that you have basic knowledge of operating the computer. If you are new to Aspen Plus and have little or no experience in chemical engineering simulation, then you have come to the right place.

Who this course is for:

  • Engineers who will be using Aspen Plus in their daily work
  • Process engineers doing process design and optimization projects and studies
  • Plant engineers checking plant performance under different operating conditions
  • R&D engineers and researchers using Aspen Plus for process synthesis
  • Engineers wishing to gain experience in simulating distillation and separation processes
  • Engineers wishing to gain experience in simulating chemical reactors
  • Aspen Plus users who want to improve their skills at analyzing reactions and designing reactors
  • Engineers wishing to gain experience in heat transfer and heat exchanger design
  • Thermal and process heat exchanger design professionals wishing to enhance their understanding of thermal design and simulation
  • Process Engineers and Particle Scientists who will be modeling solids processes
  • Engineers and Managers involved in developing and designing solids handling processes
  • Aspen Plus users who need exposure to steady-state simulation as preparation for using Aspen Plus Dynamics®
