About this Course

Welcome to this online introductory course to Aspen Plus.

Aspen Plus is a powerful engineering simulation software that you can use to model a wide range of chemical processes.  It is widely used in engineering universities and in the industry, in research, development, modeling and design.  Aspen Plus serves as the engineering platform for modeling processes from Upstream through Gas Processing to Petroleum Refining, Petrochemicals, Chemicals and Pharmaceutical processes.  This online course is designed for chemical and process engineers new to Aspen Plus and who need basic training to get started.  The course will introduce you to the basic structure of the software and leads you through a hands-on introduction to the various features of Aspen Plus, designed to facilitate the set up of simple problems.  Features such as the material balance, access to Aspen Plus documentation, the “Next” button, menu navigation, Properties and simulation environments, and the report function are introduced.  So in just about 3 hours, this online course will :

  • Show you the benefits of process simulation using Aspen Plus
  • Familiarize you with Aspen Plus graphical user interface and organizational structure
  • Provide you with the basic concepts necessary for creating simulations in Aspen Plus such as :
    How to enter necessary elements to define a Fluid Package
    How to select the appropriate property method for your application
    How to define material streams and connect unit operations to build a flowsheet
    How to run the simulator
    How to use the Report Manager to create custom unit operation and stream reports to view and analyze the results of your simulation
  • Finally, this course will also show you the basic steps to use Aspen Plus in thermodynamic instruction for property analysis of pure components and mixtures

The knowledge gained in this course will prepare you to take our Aspen Plus Masterclass and Aspen Plus Dynamics® courses in order to become an Aspen Plus advanced user if that is what you like and persist to be.  So with no further ado, check out the free preview videos and the curriculum of the course and we look forward to seeing you in the first section.  Hope to see you there  WR Training Spread the wings of your knowledge ——————————  SOFTWARE & HARDWARE : The Aspen Plus software, like most other software, is being developed on a continuous basis and new versions are released frequently. This online course covers Aspen Plus version 11, which is the most recent version at the moment we recorded this video. Please keep in mind that this online course covers the fundamental features of Aspen Plus which do not change from version to version. The course covers the use of Aspen Plus on computers that use the Windows operating system. We assume that Aspen Plus is installed on your computer and that you have basic knowledge of operating the computer. If you are new to Aspen Plus and have little or no experience in chemical engineering simulation, then you have come to the right place.
