The Arizona State University, developed a curricula for teaching semiphysical modeling to its chemical engineering students using a brine-water mixing tank experiment. The brine-water tank was used in the ECE 394 Systems as an ongoing project to help students reconcile the abstraction of mathematical modeling with the realities of a practical system. The main objective of the experiment was to develop useful mathematical models of the tank behavior displaying good predictive ability, using principles and semiphysical modeling techniques. The results show that this experiment can serve as an important role in either an introductory process dynamics and control course or a senior-level unit operations laboratory.
