CATALOG DESCRIPTION

This course stresses the application of mathematics to problems drawn from chemical engineering fundamentals such as material and energy balances, transport phenomena and kinetics.  Formulation and solution of ordinary and partial differential equations arising in chemical engineering or related processes or operations are discussed.  Mathematical approaches are restricted to analytical solutions or techniques for producing problems amenable to analytical solutions.

Prerequisites: Undergraduate differential equations course; undergraduate chemical engineering courses covering reaction kinetics, and heat, mass and momentum transfer.
