INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTIONAspen Plus is a computer-aided process engineering (CAPE) tool which has been in continual development for several decades. Its primary use is to aid in the rapid computer simulation of chemical plants that operate at steady-state. Aspen Plus contains a collection of mathematical models for different kinds of chemical process equipment such as heat exchangers, pumps, compressors, turbines, distillation columns, absorbers, strippers, and chemical reactors. A mathematical model is essentially a collection of equations which describe the important parts of the equipment and how it works. Users can select from different pre-made models, enter in key information about how it is used (such as the chemicals involved, temperatures, pressures, flow rates, sizes, and dimensions), and then use the model to…
