Todd Willman is the Founder and Director of Software Development of EPCON International. He oversees the ongoing improvement of EPCON Software products including Engineer’s Aide SiNET, the American Petroleum Institute Technical Data Book and the Gas Processor’s Association Data Bank with over 25,000 users worldwide. Todd has developed the concept of fluid flow simulation in 1991 with Engineer’s Aide SiNET, which was the first fluid flow simulation software released for Microsoft Windows and is now the most widely used fluid flow software in the refining and chemical industries. Currently he oversees software development projects for process simulation, flare simulation, pressure relief valve sizing, programmable process equipment sizing, and total facility simulation. Todd has authored 6 patents in the fields of thermodynamics, simulation software, and energy exploration.
Todd is also Director of Engineering at EPI Engineering, where he has overseen over 100 modeling and optimization studies at refining and chemical plant facilities with significant return on investment for every study performed with 100% success. He has coordinated the engineering software development of EPCON Software to help improve the engineering efficiency of EPI Engineering on an ongoing basis over the past 10 years. In 2011, Todd helped to realize annual, implemented savings of over $20MM from PNO services rendered to local petrochemical company.
Todd’s AIChE volunteer activities include serving as Chair of the South Texas Section (largest local section in the nation). During his time as Chair, he developed closer relationships with key employers in the greater Houston area through the development of sponsored meetings that more than doubled monthly meeting attendance. He has also developed and established the AICHE Regional Process Technology Conference and helped to achieve a strong resurgence of participation in AIChE by young chemical engineers in various AIChE leadership positions.
Todd earned his bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Miami University and his MBA from Georgia Institute of Technology.
