Poster: Graphical User Interfaces as Chemical Engineering Educational Tools in University and Informal Learning Environments
Ashlee N. Ford Versypt
July 30, 2019 (v1)
Subject: Education
Keywords: Computational science, Curriculum, Education, Graphical user interface, Modelling, STEM Outreach
This presentation discusses the development and use of graphical user interfaces (GUIs) as cyber-assisted educational tools for instructing and engaging undergraduate chemical engineering students, training graduate students for computational research in science and engineering, and introducing lay audiences to chemical engineering concepts in informal learning environments outside of the classroom. A GUI encapsulates computational software within a visual environment where users can provide interactive input through brief text or point-and-click controls and display query or simulation results through an automated process without needing to learn a programming language or specific commands. MATLAB and Python are two popular software environments for science and engineering used in many university chemical engineering programs worldwide. Both provide excellent user support for rapid development of professional-quality GUIs by engineering educators, academic researchers, and science and... [more]
Revisting the Simultaneous Process Optimization with Heat Integration Problem: Updated model
Rahul Anantharaman
November 21, 2018 (v1)
Keywords: Heat integration, Pinch operator, Process integration
Simultaneous process optimization and heat integration is essential in the optimal design and operation of process plants with high energy efficiency. This document revisits the pinch location method and updates the compact formulation for simultaneous process optimization with heat integration presented by Anantharaman et al at FOCAPD 2014.
