Modeling and Simulation in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers use mathematical and numerical tools to predict molecular properties and interactions as a foundation for novel product design and manufacture. The modeling and simulation techniques developed at Texas Tech allow for analysis of systems ranging from the molecular scale to the industrial scale. Expertise at Texas Tech focuses on molecular dynamic simulations of polymers and biomolecules, nanomaterial rheology, nanoscale strengthening of polymer nanocomposites, industrial process simulation, mass transfer and fluid mechanics modeling in aqueous and biological systems, and thermodynamic models of mixtures, including electrolyte solutions.
