Using a Commercial Simulator to Teach Sorption Separations
Wankat, Phillip C.
Chemical Engineering Education, v40 n3 Sum 2006
The commercial simulator Aspen Chromatography was used in the computer laboratory of a dual-level course. The lab assignments used a cookbook approach to teach basic simulator operation and open-ended exploration to understand adsorption. The students learned theory better than in previous years despite having less lecture time. Students agreed that the computer labs helped them learn and that combining lecture and computer lab was an appropriate way to teach this material.
