Spreadsheet Techniques and Problem-Solving for Chemical Engineers
- Type: Archived Webinar
- Level: Intermediate
- Duration: 1 hour
- PDHs: 1.00
Due to popular demand, AIChE Academy has revisited this topic with a new presentation.
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.
Dr. David Clough has taught applied statistics at the undergraduate and graduate levels to chemical engineering students for the past 20 years. At the graduate level, his students have included practicing professionals.
Dr. Clough recently retired after a 43-year career on the faculty of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado’s Boulder Campus. He is still active in the Department in the Emeritus role, including the supervision of research in applied process control. He teaches several AIChE Academy courses, both in-person and eLearning...Read more
