The term “open-ended problem” basically describes an approach to the solution of a problem and/or situation for which there is not a unique solution. The Introduction to the general subject of open-ended problems is followed by 22 chapters, each of which addresses a traditional chemical engineering or chemical engineering-related topic. Each of the...

Current college students are accustomed to documenting and sharing their experiences through text, photo, and video, thanks to the ready availability of all of these through personal portable devices. The democratization of video production and access has led to the possibility to both teach and learn with video as never before. This work seeks to...
The lack of clean drinking water is rapidly becoming one of the most important international health issues. Many remote regions in developing countries face water shortages and lack of potable water causing significant hardship to local people. One popular method used is the desalination of brackish water. The most widely used and commercially prov...
In the fall of 2010, XXXXX College started to devise and develop plausible green initiatives spearheaded by students across all five of its schools. From this college-wide endeavor, a plan to convert the school's waste vegetable oil into biodiesel was initiated by two students in the Chemical Engineering Department. In addition to pure biodiesel, t...
This paper discusses the teaching of concepts in an introductory thermodynamics course through video. This generation of students is technology savvy, and regularly communicates by means other than face-to-face interactions (e.g. texting). Additionally, the popularity of sites such as Khan Academy makes the idea of teaching with video difficult to...
This project addresses the need for changing undergraduate chemical engineering education to take advantage of skills possessed by a media savvy generation of students. A student's conceptual understanding is often decoupled from their problem solving ability. In other words, mathematical solutions are often attained in the absence of fully underst...
This paper discusses the experience of a Deaf student and their professor in a material and energy balances course. This non-traditional combination was challenging for a few reasons. First, from a professor's perspective, it was initially distracting to have two interpreters by your side in the front of the classroom. Second, from an interpreter's...
Table 1 shows the parameters calculated after fitting the batch adsorption data into the Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms. The experimental data exhibits a better fit to the Langmuir than the Freundlich isotherm based from the value of R2. The value of qm and KF was higher than that obtained from the adsorption of methomyl onto a hypercrosslinked...
Laboratory reports have traditionally been the primary deliverable for students enrolled in the unit operations laboratory course. These reports are typically comprised of several sections that emulate the format of a traditional scientific publication. Because these documents can be very lengthy, it is time consuming for educators teaching this co...
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) offer significant potential as a cell source in tissue-engineering applications because of their multipotent ability. The objective of this study was to evaluate the behaviour of MSCs during the seeding phase, using four different seeding techniques (spinner flask, custom vacuum system combined with a perfused bioreact...
This book teaches the fundamentals of fluid flow by including both theory and the applications of fluid flow in chemical engineering. It puts fluid flow in the context of other transport phenomena such as mass transfer and heat transfer, while covering the basics, from elementary flow mechanics to the law of conservation. The book then examines the...

An unfortunate realty of today's undergraduate engineering environment is that engineering students often scoff at the idea of taking an ethics course. A quick survey of students reveals that there are several reasons behind this. First, many believe that engineering ethics cannot be taught. They believe that their peers are sufficiently savvy that...
Fluid Flow for the Practicing Chemical Engineer helps readers move comfortably from fluid flow principles to fluid flow applications. From elementary flow mechanics to the laws of conservation of mass, energy, and momentum, the book covers all the basic principles of fluid flow. The book also demonstrates how these principles underlie a broad range...
