The Reactor Lab is a software program that provides simulations of a variety of chemical reactors. Students can actively learn about chemical reactions and reactors by performing experiments and analyzing data - quickly, safely, and inexpensively. The program can be downloaded free of charge and is available for most computers and in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Those who have used the Lab range from high school chemistry students to chemical engineering university and graduate students, to professionals in industry. The Lab is not a general purpose simulator; if you have specific needs, contact us.
Little or no training is required for operation of the lab because of its consistent design. In addition, information about each object is displayed at the bottom of the window as the cursor passes over that object.
Data, which can have random error included, can be viewed with integrated table and plot functions and also saved to disk for analysis with standard software. Several lab modules have quizzes. Each student gets a different, randomly assigned set of kinetic parameters to find. Scoring is done by the program (with virtual $) and code-authenticated performance reports may be printed and saved to disk.
