Interactive Simulations

  • CheCalc Simulations
  • Liquid-Liquid Ternary Separations (University of Sheffield, University of Manchester): An interactive system to learn how to use ternary phase diagrams and design liquid-liquid extraction systems
  • LearnChemE (University of Colorado Boulder): More than 45 Mathematica-based interactive simulations that can be run with a free CDF player plug-in. Their main objective is to demonstrate important concepts in phase equilibrium, separations and mass transfer. Most simulations have accompanying screencasts that demonstrate their use.
