Abstract

We describe a web-module designed for the use in conjunction with the course on "Stochastic Modelling in Chemical Engineering" taught in the fourth year in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Cambridge. The central aim of the web-module is to enable students without knowledge of a programming language to gain hands on experience testing a Monte Carlo algorithm. For this purpose two sets of reactions in a batch reactor are studied, one of which is the Belousov-Zhabotinski reaction system, which shows oscillating behaviour.
