4.4 Summary

Chemical engineers perform a wide variety of computations ranging from simple arithmetic calculations to solving partial differential equations and simulating entire process plants. Technological advances have enabled engineers to access high-performance computing machines and use advanced software for obtaining solutions rapidly. As envisioned by Leibniz, this has allowed them the freedom from time-consuming, laborious, repetitive computational tasks, and they can focus on the more important mission of developing technologies from concept to practical implementation.
