Written for chemical engineering students and industry professionals, this book shows how to write reusable computer programs and guides the reader through the process of: establishing the theoretical concept; determining the applicable numerical methods; testing the algorithm through manual calculation; writing and debugging the computer program based on the algorithm; and validating the result using statistical analysis. Topics covered include numerical computation, physical properties prediction and approximation, and applications using MATLAB.
MATLAB is introduced and used throughout the book to solve numerous application examples.
In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB M-files are available on a CD bound in the book.
