Computer-aided design for chemical engineers
The areas in which chemical engineers are increasingly using computers as design aids are reviewed.
The importance of training chemical engineering students in computer-aided design methodology is stressed and the implications for the computing resource requirements are examined.
Experiences with an interactive multi-terminal system are described as is the development of a general design tutoring package for chemical engineers. Some of the problems of constructing, transferring, and maintaining the package are discussed.
