Check out the diverse discussions happening now, which range from simplifying your digital life to thermodynamics and Antoine equations.
Fundamentals (Chemical Engineering Theory)
Michael Graham of the Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison outlines some of the fluid mechanics research he presented in the Schowalter Lecture.
MIT's Karen K. Gleason will present the John M. Prausnitz AIChE Institute Lecture for 2019 in Orlando.
The two brothers' new app, Refyne, uses an interactive refinery game to teach basic chemical engineering concepts.
John Prausnitz is considered the founder of molecular thermodynamics, which transformed the ways in which chemical engineers learn and practice their profession. His humanistic approach t
If you've ever confused a compressor for a turbine or expander while creating or reading a process flow diagram, then this post is for you.
The Saudi YPC held a technical workshop on heat exchanger network (HEN) design and retrofit studies based on pinch analysis on March 7, 2016.
This recently published tutorial in the Learn ChemE series explains each step in a refrigeration cycle and the energy balance for each step. The process is shown in a pressure-enthalpy diagram.
This short video tutorial takes a look at material and energy balances in a reactor with heat exchange.
Need to brush up on Gaussian elimination? Check out this video tutorial about this technique that is used to solve for multiple unknowns.
Biomass fast pyrolysis yields oxygen rich (hydrogen deficient) hydrocarbons of inferior fuel quality. They contain upwards of 40 dry-weight % oxygen, whereas petroleum contains around 1%, so these bio-oils must be upgraded to be rightfully considered a replacement for liquid fossil fuels. Jack Ferrell of NREL's National bioenergy Center spoke at the Spring Meeting about their program to develop electrochemical hydrodeoxygenation processes.
