Chapter 6: Exact Calculation Procedures for Multicomponent Distillation

Since multicomponent calculations are trial-and-error, it is convenient to do them on a computer. Because stage-by-stage calculations are restricted to problems where a good first guess of compositions can be made at some point in the column, matrix methods for multicomponent distillation will be used. These methods are not restricted to cases where a good guess of compositions can be made.

6.1 Introduction to Matrix Solution for Multicomponent Distillation

Since distillation is a very important separation technique, considerable effort has been spent in devising better calculation procedures. Details of these procedures are available in a variety of textbooks (Seader and ...
