Download Aspen Plus V11 Course: Flash, Distillation & Extraction Processes

Aspen Plus V11 video Course: Flash, Distillation & Extraction Processes by udemy download tutorial. Aspen Plus is a complex process simulator and, in our opinion, the best way to learn is with hands-on experience, by attempting each example provided in this online course, and when difficulties are encountered, by referring to the problem setup and solution that you can find in the downloadable resource section.

The downloadable resources contain the input and solutions to all of the examples and workshops covered in this online course. There is a root folder for each section, within which, there are subfolders named Examples. Each example is provided in .bkp Aspen Plus format and .txt format. The .bkp files are set up as input files to view details and may be executed.
