Many chemical engineers are self-taught in the use of spreadsheets for day-to-day problem-solving, which is testimony to the inherent usefulness of this tool. Although spreadsheet software was developed for financial calculations, engineers and scientists in all fields have found spreadsheets to be their tool of choice.
In this webinar, Dr. Clough focuses on two topics. First, he discusses and illustrates via live spreadsheet demonstrations sound techniques that chemical engineers should know in order to create well-designed spreadsheets in an efficient manner. In the second part of the webinar, he illustrates several common problem-solving scenarios that are representative of chemical engineering calculations. At the conclusion of the presentation and demonstrations, Dr. Clough entertains questions from the webinar attendees.
David Clough is a professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado. He has been on the faculty there for 36 years. Professor Clough has been teaching spreadsheets to undergraduate chemical engineers for 25 years. He has also taught, in collaboration with Miles Julian, a popular spreadsheet short course for the AIChE more than 100 times over the past 20 years. Currently, he is developing an on-line course to be offered soon via the AIChE.
Professor Clough’s research is in applied process control. He also served as Associate Dean...
