Teaching Chemical Engineering with MATLAB, Simulink, and TCLab
John Hedengren, Brigham Young University
MATLAB® and Simulink® are widely used in the chemical processing industries for various applications, including data analysis, optimization, and process control. In this webinar, you will hear industrial success stories about the use of MATLAB in the chemical processing industries. App-based workflows, interactive live scripts, automated grading tools (MATLAB Grader™), and self-paced online courses ease students into programming and offer a scalable way for instructors to teach programming. MathWorks products and resources align well with many chemical engineering courses, including heat transfer, fluid dynamics, reaction kinetics, chemical engineering laboratory, and process control.
In this webinar, you will learn relevant resources for chemical engineering courses, including process control. Dr. John Hedengren highlights curriculum modules that he developed with the low-cost Temperature Control Lab (TCLab) using MATLAB and Simulink for process control courses. The Arduino-based TCLab provides experimental data similar to a lab setting in a portable and accessible manner, as each student has access to their own device. The examples demonstrated will engage students and reinforce conceptual understanding of process control using live scripts and Simulink.
