Chemical Engineering Simulations Software Release

BURLINGTON, MA (April 23, 2009) - COMSOL, Inc., developer of the industry-leading COMSOL

BURLINGTON, MA (April 23, 2009) – COMSOL, Inc., developer of the industry-leading COMSOL Multiphysics® software environment for the modeling and simulation of physics-based systems, recently released Introduction to Chemical Engineering Simulations, the newest member of the company's acclaimed Introduction Kit CDs suite of tutorials for engineers, researchers, scientists, and educators. This free CD explores and explains how multiphysics tools can be used to analyze and simulate a wide variety of chemical processes, including fluid flow, transport phenomena, and reaction kinetics, while simultaneously speeding up product development, reducing costs, and sparking innovation.

The first tutorials provide a broad overview of multiphysics, explain key concepts, and show how to apply multiphysics for solving chemical engineering problems. In later, more advanced tutorials, technical presentations explain the role of specific simulation tools, including the Chemical Engineering Module and COMSOL Reaction Engineering Lab®, then demonstrate the chemical processing modeling workflow using real-world models such as the simulation of the polymerization of a multijet reactor to illustrate critical capabilities.

Introduction to Chemical Engineering Simulations also explores the range of tools available for chemical processing simulation by showing how organizations such as NASA, Philips, PEM, and Argonne National Lab leverage multiphysics systems for chemical engineering applications. Additional COMSOL user stories, browsable by application area and industry segment, detail a wealth of successes achieved by engineers using the multiphysics approach in electrochemical engineering, process engineering, separation, reaction processes, and related areas.


Introduction to Chemical Engineering Simulations is an invaluable resource for engineers, researchers, and scientists in such industries as agrochemicals, automotive and aerospace, fine and specialty chemicals production, inorganic bulk chemicals, petrochemicals and organic bulk chemicals, petroleum extraction and processing, pharmaceuticals, health care and biomedical, polymers, elastomers and composites, as well as many similar industries. Engineering educators will also deem the CD a welcome supplement to their instructional materials. This free resource can be requested at
