Process simulation and ASPEN Plus

Mathematical model of a process is a mathematical representation of the process obtained by applying conservation principles like mass, momentum and energy balance and constitutive relationships like phase and chemical equilibrium and chemical kinetics. Process simulation refers to the solution of the governing equations comprising the model to predict the steady state and dynamic characteristics of the process. Process simulation plays a vital role in optimal design, operation and troubleshooting of chemical plants and simulating plant transients like start up, shut down and closed loop performance.

ASPEN is one of the most celebrated process simulation software from AspenTech Inc. USA. ASPEN Plus is a versatile and user friendly steady state simulation tool that is widely used both by academicians and process industries worldwide.


ASPEN WORKSHOP will provide participants the opportunity of getting a working knowledge of ASPEN. The ASPEN sessions will embrace two of the most popular ASPEN modules, ASPEN Plus process simulator, and its sister suite ASPEN Properties, which are valuable tools to simulate steady state processes and to estimate and analyse physical properties, respectively.


The workshop is intended for pre-final and final year students of chemical engineering. Selection is based on first come first serve basis. Based on the response, similar workshop may be conducted at a later date.


  • Registration has to be done online, by mailing the Completed Registration Form
  • Selection of participants will be intimated through email/phone
  • Selected participants have to confirm their participation by sending a registration fee of Rs 500/- by demand draft drawn in favor of Association of Technologists payable at chennai

Chemfluence'08 Print

Chemfluence is the annual National level technical symposium for students of chemical and allied fields of engineering, organized by the Department of Chemical Engineering,A.C. College of Technology, Anna University. It had its inception in the year 1996 and keeping in tune with the quote, “Energy is the basis of life itself, and ideas the source of innovation, so is innovation the vital spark of all human change, improvement and progress”, Chemfluence has over the years emerged as a platform to showcase the best of the chemical engineering. The 2008 edition, the thirteenth in the line, however, transcends its predecessors. Chemfluence ’08 ushers in an epoch, and has grown in stature from when it started, as a national-level symposium to becoming a national-level technical festival, the first ever, exclusively for budding chemical engineers. Chemfluence ‘08, planned as a larger and a much more bigger four-day event, filled with a galore of contests, marks the convergence of ingenuity, heuristic skills and zeal of the Gen-Next.

Chemfluence ’08 works towards inciting the minds to think out of the box, and to quench the insatiable thirst for challenge. Chemfluence‘08 encompasses events, which include traditional paper presentation contest on a wide range on Chemical engineering topics, Technical quiz, Simulation contests, Industry defined solutions, Demos and Workshops, Math Modelling, Physical modelling, and a lot more. Chemfluence ’08 also brings forward Revelations- Guest lecture Series that is all about conflux of ideas, experiences and viewpoints. Chemfluence’08 also gives the participants can an exposure to the celebrated chemical engineering simulation tool ASPEN at our ASPEN workshop. And not to leave out the budding entrepreneurs, a business-planning contest has also been incorporated into the events list. And not to forget entertainment through Infotainment.

We believe Chemfluence’08 will thus tests skills, will help to learn from the experiences of ‘who-s-who’ in Chemical engineering, demos, and workshops and finally at the end of the day, also teach to shake a leg too, and enjoy the spirit of a college fete!
