Designing, Simulation and Control of Processes Group

This department consists of two subfields; 1- Designing, Simulation and Control of Processes, 2- Biotechnology. This department has been equipped with four research laboratories;
1- Simulation and Control of the Processes research laboratory.
2- Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
3- Computer Aided Process Engineering (CAPE)
4- Biotechnology research laboratory

This department has been engaged in many of the applied and fundamental researches throughout the country. One of its missions is to optimally design the processes so that they are economical and operationally efficient, while producing no problem for the environment. In most cases to have an appropriate designing, we need modeling and simulation of the process. The modeling of the process is defined as the description of the nature of that system in terms of mathematical equations. Simulation means obtaining the process output information (e.g.the characteristics of the product) through the solution of above- mentioned models, which is based on the input information (e.g.the characteristics of the materials). Despite this simple definition, there are various uses of simulation in different processes of chemical industries. As some examples of its uses, we can refer to its uses in investigation and development of processes, process designing, appropriate exploitation of the existent utilities, process control, other aspects such as training the operators and connection to the management system. The Department of Designing and Simulation of Chemical Processes has accepted students of different educational levels since 1374. At the present, this department has 8 academic members with the above mentioned expertise.
