Chemical Engineering: An Introduction
By Morton M. Denn
Cambridge University Press (2012), $41.52 (

Reviewed by
David L. Silverstein, Ph.D., P.E.
Professor Morton Denn opens Chemical Engineering: An
Introduction with his definition of the field: "Chemical engi-
neering is the field of applied science that employs physical,
chemical, and biochemical rate processes for the betterment
of humanity." He follows these opening lines with a very
brief discussion of the history of the profession, followed
by short descriptions of a number of modem applications of
chemical engineering along with biographical information of
key practitioners and researchers.
The remaining 14 chapters reveal a different sort of in-
troduction to chemical engineering than other introductory
textbooks. Denn does not focus on developing a broad range
of fundamental skills (communication, resume writing, study
skills, etc.) for incoming ChE students, but instead seeks to
give an overview of the profession by presenting to the stu-
dent the mathematical application of chemical engineering
fundamentals and then expecting students to manipulate the
resulting models.
The text is best suited to students with solid mathematics
and physics backgrounds that will not be overwhelmed by
presentation and manipulation of differential equations. Most
chapters include a set of quantitative problems, with many
of them requiring calculus skills typically developed in the
third course in the sequence (partial differentials). The author
suggests that the only required math is Calculus 1.

Appendices for each chapter describe ancillary skills (least
squares regression, dimensional analysis, etc.) in brief or
provide additional detail on derivations for specific cases.
Some of the appendices contain what are more frequently core
course topics for an introductory engineering course, so the
instructor will need to carefully evaluate the match between
his or her students and the support offered by the textbook.
The book does not go as far as others targeted at beginning
ChE students by placing core ChE topics in a single specific
process context (i.e., Solen & Harb). It does place each topic
in the context of a process working with a liquid phase applied
to one of a broad range of specialties ranging from traditional
chemical and petroleum operations to modem bio-, pharma-,
and nano- applications.
A notable strength of the text is the bibliography ending each
chapter. Instead of just listing sources for examples, data, or
structure, the author discusses the utility of the source and
how he used it in the development of most chapters.
The 15 chapters are not organized in broad subject areas
(e.g., mass transfer, reactor design) but are instead organized
in smaller segments building on Chapter 2, which describes
fundamental modeling techniques grounded in conservation
principles. Mass transfer, for example, is addressed in separate
chapters on Membrane Separations, Two-phase Systems and
Interfacial Mass Transfer, and Equilibrium Staged Processes.
Denn suggests one word that can be used to describe the
text: rigorous. The introductory course instructor will need
to consider the preparation of students entering the course.
If they are well-prepared, the text provides a well-structured
framework to explore the fundamentals of chemical engi-
neering analysis and to give an overview of the breadth of
opportunities that lie ahead for chemical engineers. 0

[e2s curriculum




University of Canterbury Christchurch, New Zealand

or the past decade, the Chemical and Process En-
gineering (CAPE) Department of the University of
Canterbury has offered an introductory course on com-
putational fluid dynamics (CFD) to final-year undergraduate
students. The popularity of this elective course, which is also
open to final-year mechanical and civil engineering students,
has increased, with student numbers rising from eight in 2001
to an average of 50 to 60 from 2009 onwards. This reflects
the increased relevance of CFD as an engineering design
tool, driven by improvements in the graphical user interface
of commercial CFD packages, advances in mathematical
models, and increases in computer processing power. The
user-friendly nature of commercial CFD packages and the
speed and reliability of their solutions make problems relevant
to engineering industry more amenable to CFD analysis.
Since practicing engineers are likely to use commercially
available CFD software as a design tool, a hands-on approach
with a commercial CFD code is appropriate when teaching
students CFD.11-71 It is important that the CFD solver not be
treated as a black box. Key solver concepts that need to be
covered include the stability and accuracy of discretization
schemes and the importance of gaining mesh- and (for tran-
sient problems) time-step-independent numerical solutions.
We have found that an exercise demonstrating the links
between discretization and the accuracy of the numerical
solutions helps to demystify the black box of a commercial
CFD solver.
In the CAPE CFD course, a homework assignment is given
to students to solve the one-dimensional transient diffusion
problem. The key learning objectives of this assignment are to
teach students the importance of gaining mesh- and time-step-
independent numerical solutions in CFD and to demonstrate
that these predictions can be verified by comparison with an
analytical solution. This paper describes two examples of the
one-dimensional transient diffusion problem, which were set
as homework assignments in 2007 and 2010. The first case

is the Couette flow problem for transient development of the
velocity profile between two parallel plates after the lower
plate, initially at rest, instantaneously moves horizontally at
a constant velocity. The second case is mass diffusion in a
porous medium, specifically looking at the moisture content
profiles that develop within timber as it dries. A third case
that could be used is transient diffusion in the form of heat
conduction in a thin metal plate.t81 These three cases cover
important physical phenomena of interest to engineers. The
aim of this paper is to demonstrate that these homework
assignments help students learn useful concepts about the
methodology and numerical aspects of CFD in a hands-on
manner using physically realistic, easy-to-understand prob-
lems. Student responses to a survey on the 2010 homework
assignment are presented.

The primary aim of the introductory CFD course is to
teach students CFD methodology. The course is taught in one
semester (12 weeks), building on courses taken previously
by students in fluid mechanics and numerical methods. It is
delivered in 12 two- hour lectures, as shown in Table 1 (next
page), using a similar approach as described by Aungt91 and
Kaushik et al.171 Familiarity with spreadsheets, Matlab and/
or other programming codes is assumed. The textbook is
Versteeg and Malalasekera's Introduction-to-CFD book.181 A
key feature of the lectures is to provide simulation examples

(spreadsheet calculations or
flow visualizations), where
appropriate, to demonstrate
the principles involved.
The CFD methodology is
threaded throughout the lec-
tures, covering 1) geometry
generation and appropriate
types of and locations for
boundaries; 2) mesh gen-
eration with a focus on mesh
quality and gaining mesh
independent numerical solu-
tions; 3) choice of physics
and numerical schemes; 4)
solution algorithms (coupled
and uncoupled solvers and
structured and unstructured
meshes); 5) post-processing;
and 6) validation. The lec-
tures are supported by three
homework assignments.

Couette flow assignment
Two very large parallel
plates, with a fluid in the
space between them, are
separated by a distance h
(Figure la). The lower plate
is suddenly accelerated from
rest and moves at a constant
velocity u0 while maintaining
the same distance from the
upper plate, which remains
stationary. The following
governing equation describes
the development of the fluid
velocity profile with time:

where u is the fluid velocity (nm/i

Mass diffusion in a porous medium assignment
A green timber board with an initial moisture content of 0.3 kg w
per kg dry wood is dried by passing warm humid air over the top and 1
tom surfaces (Figure lb). These surfaces equilibrate very quickly
the warm humid air to a moisture content of 0.12 kg/kg. The follow
governing equation describes the development of the moisture-con
distribution within the timber board with time as it dries:

where X is the moisture content (kg/kg), D is the diffusion coeffic
of water in the wood (mEs), t is time (s), and y (m) is the distance fi

Numerical solution using finite-volume method

Couette and timber-drying problems. An excellent description is gi
by Versteeg and Malalasekera181 for the case of transient heat conduct
in a thin metal plate. Students can solve the matrix equation that coi

it is Matlab or a spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel. According
Guessous,051 this enables students to focus on the important algorith
and numerical aspects of CFD, rather than on tedious mathematical or
input/output tasks associated with matrix inversions and data format

iber plored, and in this case the students were required
to recommend a mesh spacing and time step that
produced a solution that was independent of these
quantities. Students compared numerical solutions
at different times for at least three different time

students provided plots of error vs. time step and

solution. Finally, students commented on which

Figure 2 compares the numerical predictions based on the
explicit discretization scheme with the analytical solution at
three times t (1, 5, and 10 s) for two different time steps At
(0.2s and 0.5 s) for the Couette flow problem. The larger time step
was calculated from Eq. (11), which represents the stability crite-

rion for the explicit discretization scheme. Any time
step equal to or greater than this time step (in this case
At--0.5 s) would result in an unstable and physically
unrealistic numerical solution, as shown by the oscilla-
tions in Figure 2. This part of the exercise gives students
practical experience in the stability of discretization
schemes, and reinforces concepts learned in lectures
on the numerical stability of discretization schemes for
convection-diffusion problems, such as stability issues
that arise when the central-differencing scheme is used.
The smaller time step of 0.2 s results in a physically
realistic numerical solution, which is in good agreement
with the analytical solution. Students calculated the er-
rors for the stable numerical solution, as demonstrated
by Versteeg and Malalaseker.E8' This prepared them for
a validation exercise in a subsequent homework assign-
ment in which they compared CFD simulations of a
simple turbulent flow with experimental data.
Figure 2 also compares the numerical predictions of
the explicit and fully implicit discretization schemes
for a time step At of 0.5s. This demonstrates that the
fully implicit scheme, which is unconditionally stable,
gives reasonable numerical solutions for time steps that
the explicit scheme cannot handle. Through discussion
in class, students come to appreciate the analogy to
convection-diffusion problems, where upwind discreti-
zation is preferable to central-differencing for highly
convective flows, due to the unconditional stability of
the former. Students also appreciate that refining the
mesh to gain a mesh-independent solution is not such
a limitation for the fully implicit scheme as for the
explicit scheme, for which mesh refining is often ac-
companied by a refinement in the time step so that the
stability criterion given by Eq. (11) is met. This gives
the fully implicit scheme advantages over the explicit
scheme for use in CFD codes.
Students demonstrated the effect of refining the mesh
and time step on the numerical accuracy of the solution.
Here, they come to understand that the exact solution of
the governing equations, given by the analytical solution,
can only be approached numerically when a sufficiently
fine mesh and a small enough time step are used. Figure
3 shows the improved accuracy that can be gained by
using more control volumes for the timber drying prob-
lem. Smith"4' has used COMSOL Multi-physics, a com-
mercial code with CFD functionality, to teach students
the importance of proper mesh resolution for achieving
numerically accurate CFD solutions. In the assignment
presented here, students experience the numerical aspects
of CFD more directly through the process of numerical
discretization of the governing partial differential equa-
tion and solution of the resultant algebraic equations. In
this way, students gain an appreciation of how the mesh

Chemical Engineering Education

and the underlying numerical approximations of gradients are
linked. This concept is reinforced in class, where it is demon-
strated that, in CFD problems, the mesh should be concentrated
in areas of high gradients, which improves the numerical ap-
proximations of these gradients.
Figure 4 shows that the numerical error reduces as the flow
domain is discretized with more control volumes (or in other
words when the mesh spacing is reduced) and smaller time
steps are used. In Figure 4, the error is calculated by taking
the absolute difference between the analytical and numerical
solution for each control volume at three times (t=l s, 5 s, and
10 s) and averaging these. Thus, in this homework assignment,
students gained experience in comparing their numerical so-
lutions with "independent data" in an analogy to validating
CFD models using experimental data. This experience came
in handy when the students validated CFD simulations using
experimental data in a subsequent homework assignment.

The students in the class of 2010 were given a survey to
ascertain the value of the homework assignment. The class had
52 students and there was approximately 80% attendance at
the lecture in which the survey was conducted. The students
were asked to rate the given statements according to the fol-
lowing categories: 1 = strongly disagree; 2 = disagree; 3 =
neutral; 4 = agree; 5 = strongly agree. The survey results are
shown in Table 2.
On average, the students agreed that this homework as-
signment contributed to their understanding of the CFD
methodology and the finite-volume method of discretization.
The students also appreciated the hands-on aspect of the
homework assignment in reinforcing their understanding of
numerical methods learned in the class. Overall, they found
the homework assignment to be a worthwhile exercise al-
though it rated slightly lower (although still well) for interest
and challenge. The homework assignment took on average
23 hours to complete, in alignment with its 20% weighting
for the course, which has been nominally allocated 120 hours
work in total, covering lectures, self-study, exam preparation,
and assignments. The high standard deviation of 8 hrs reflects
the variation in student ability, as well as the amount of work
students put into the assignment, with some able students
putting in significantly more time to do a thorough job on the
mesh and time step independence studies. Sixty percent of the
students chose to conduct the calculations using Matlab, and
the remaining 40 percent chose Microsoft Excel.

Over the years, all students correctly carried out the nu-
merical discretization, mainly due to the availability of the
analytical solution, which provided a means of checking for
errors. Depcik and Assanis['21 have pointed out that verifying
a numerical method against an analytical solution is a useful

way of increasing one's confidence in a correctly implemented
numerical method. One common student issue is choosing an
appropriate range of control-volume numbers for testing mesh
independence. Each year, a small number of students choose

Vol. 47, No. 4, Fall 2013

meshes covering an inappropriately narrow range of control
volumes, for example 5,7, and 9 control volumes. The point is
made in class that using at least three meshes with a doubling
of the control-volume number between successive meshes will
provide a satisfactory test for mesh independence. Students are
not always clear on when to stop refining the mesh (or when to
stop reducing the time step). It is explained that, for a validation
exercise in which CFD simulations are compared with experi-
mental data, refinement might continue until the difference in
solution between successive refinements is smaller than the
experimental uncertainty, since there is little advantage in gain-
ing further numerical accuracy beyond this point. In addition,
the gains in accuracy achieved by further refinement must be
weighed against the additional computational effort required.

An undergraduate CFD course that teaches a commercial
CFD package does not necessarily provide students with a firm
grasp of underlying numerical concepts, and may give them
the impression that the solver is a black box, which Coronell
and Hariri131 point out is valid for many types of numerical
solvers available commercially. There are good lessons on
the application of numerical methods and stability that can
be learned from code development, which would be useful to
students for understanding how converged and accurate CFD
solutions are obtained. It is difficult, however, to see how code
development could be fitted into the one-semester introduc-
tory CFD course taught at CAPE, whose focus is on teaching
undergraduate students the CFD methodology so that they
have a solid basis for when they apply CFD in industry. The
CFD course at CAPE makes a compromise between a course
with a focus on code development and a course that teaches
students how to use commercial CFD software. A homework
assignment is given in which discretization and numerical
stability and accuracy are demonstrated in a hands-on man-
ner using easy-to-understand, physically realistic problems
of practical interest to engineers. Matlab and Microsoft Excel
are used to bypass tedious calculations associated with code
development such as data formatting and matrix inversions,
while not taking away from the key concepts of discretization
and numerical stability and accuracy. Through this homework
assignment, student understanding of the CFD methodology is
promoted because the process of solving the problem is analo-
gous to conducting a typical CFD analysis, including laying
out the geometry, generating the mesh, defining the physics
and boundary conditions, solving the governing equations,
and visualizing the solution. This connection is emphasized
in class with the presentation of Versteeg and Malalasekera's153
numerical solution of transient heat conduction in a thin metal
plate. In the homework assignment, an analytical solution
provides a means of verifying the numerical solutions, in a
similar fashion to how mathematical models are validated by
comparison with experimental data.

In summary, the homework assignment has proven to be
an effective tool to help students learn the CFD methodology
and understand how a commercial CFD solver works. The
homework assignment helps students overcome the steep
learning curve of CFD by giving them hands-on experience
with the principles and methodologies first demonstrated
in class. A balance is struck by teaching students numerical
aspects to demystify the black box of a commercial CFD
solver and showing them how this knowledge can be used
to gain accurate, stable numerical solutions, while avoiding
some of the more tedious calculations associated with code

n the tradition of "Who was Who in Transport Phenom-
ena" by Byron Bird in Chemical Engineering Education,[I
we have developed a similar set of microbiographies for
persons in the fields of kinetics, reaction engineering, and
catalysis. As noted by Bird, an otherwise typical lecture
can be enlivened by presenting biographical information
about the people whose names appear in famous equations,
dimensionless groups, plots, approximations, and theories.
The wide variety of applications for this type of information
has been demonstrated by using activity breaks to teach the
history of our profession[21 and as trading card rewards for
academic performance."]
With the introduction and widespread acceptance of Wiki-
pedia, basic biographical information on many of the early
contributors to the profession of chemical engineering can be
simple to find. If, however, the named person is more famous
for something else (e.g., Edward Teller), the inclusion of any
information on his contribution to the BET isotherm can be
easily omitted from his or her biography. In addition, while
improving, the citation of references in Wikipedia articles is
still not up to the standards we expect of academic articles.
Thus, while Wikipedia has served as a useful starting point,
most of the information here has been assembled from primary
and secondary sources. The more useful secondary sources
include the Nobel Prize and Chemical Heritage Foundation
websites, published biographies of members of the National
Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering,
Fellows of the Royal Society, and retrospective written by
students, colleagues, and admirers published in a wide variety
of academic journals.

We have tried to include the names that are encountered
frequently in textbooks for both undergraduates and gradu-
ates (by noted authors such as Levenspiel, Hill, Fogler, and
Froment and Bischoff). Again, we follow Bird's lead and do
not include these people simply for authoring books in these
fields. We do, however, include- where appropriate- famous
texts written by those scientists and engineers included for
other reasons. We have tried to focus on those persons who
contributed to the science of a field and not just contributed to
a specific reaction or system (e.g., Haber and Bosch). While
contributions to specific reactions or systems are important,
we elected not to include them in order to limit the scope of
the project. Finally, we have tried to include interesting non-
technical or non-professional information where possible to
show the breadth of these individuals.

While the majority of scientists and engineers included in
these biographies are academics, industrial researchers also
provided significant contributions. For example, while Em-
mett, Eyring, and Taylor spent the majority of their careers in
academia, major contributions were provided by Langmuir,
Macmullin, and van Krevelen while working in industrial
positions on practical problems.
As an extension to Bird's biographies, we have tried to
include, where possible, a reference for a seminal text or
manuscript for the noted work. Many students would be sur-
prised by how recent much of the work is since they always
"assume" everything in the textbook is ancient history. These
seminal works can also be used to demonstrate how ideas and
approaches to solving real-world problems eventually migrate
to textbooks. The availability of online access to full-text
journal articles allows these references to be quickly obtained
and available for classroom use.
Images of the famous scientists and engineers associated
with the biographies herein can also contribute to the adapta-
tion of this information for classroom use. We have not in-
cluded photographs or portraits for two reasons. First, includ-
ing pictures of appropriate resolution would add significantly
to the length of this article. Second, many photographs and
portraits are protected with copyright registration. For class-
room usage, Google Image search will often return a variety
of images with the caveat for the user to abide by copyright

Random Thoughts...



Sometimes you have to moan,
when nothing seems to suit ya (Cat Stevens)

Most department faculties and university committees would
be better off if they limited their meetings to 20 minutes. More
real work would be done outside the meetings and much less
valuable faculty time would be wasted on repetitive discus-
sions that never produce action.

Courses taught online can never be as good as courses
taught by live teachers who actively engage students and
motivate and inspire them to learn. On the other hand, good
online courses are better than courses taught live by teachers
who just lecture, and much better if the lectures are nonstop
PowerPoint shows.

Joe and Jake are both engineering students. Joe has a 3.6
GPA and Jake has 2.7. Joe is a fast but sloppy problem solver:
he usually finishes tests and turns his paper in with time to
spare, but loses points here and there for careless mistakes.
Jake is methodical and careful but slow: he reads and rereads
the problem statement, systematically works out the solution
and checks it carefully, and rarely makes mistakes. Since most
exams are so long that only the fastest students have time to
finish, Jake often runs out of time, leaves large parts of the
exam undone, and fails it.
A student who can solve a problem in 30 minutes and makes
mistakes will not be a better engineer than one who needs 45
or even 60 minutes to do it but is much more likely to get it
right. (Which one would you rather have designing the bridges
you drive across and the planes you fly in?) It makes no sense
at all to give exams that are too long, pushing careful but slow
students out of engineering in favor of fast but careless ones.
Why do so many of us do it with every exam we make up?

Tests with averages lower than 60 usually reflect either poor
teaching or a teacher unwilling to take the time to construct
a fair test.

If you're a new faculty member and a group of your depart-
ment colleagues regularly goes out to lunch, no matter how
much you have to do and how close that proposal deadline
is, join them. Sitting alone in your office all day won't help
Vol. 47, No. 4, Fall 2013

you learn about the campus culture and politics or cultivate
advocates among the people who will eventually vote on
your tenure and promotion. (You'll also have better and more
enjoyable lunches.)

Most universities would be better off dropping the fiction
that varsity football and basketball have anything to do with
education. Just treat them as the businesses they are: if they
pay, keep them, otherwise drop or outsource them.

Proposal: If an administrator fires an athletic coach before
his or her regular appointment expires because the team hasn't
won enough and a large payoff is required, the funds cannot
be taken from existing institutional resources. They must
instead be raised from students and alumni, the only ones
who care that much about the number of wins. If sufficient
funds cannot be raised, the coach may remain for the duration
of the appointment.

Charging faculty members hundreds of dollars to park their
cars on campus is absurd! It's like charging them rent for their
offices or fees to use the restrooms.

None of us would ever submit to surgery at the hands of a
surgeon who never went to medical school, or leave our car with
a mechanic who never held a wrench. So why do universities
think it's all right to send someone into a class to teach under-
graduates who has never been taught a thing about how to do
it? And what academic discipline other than engineering has
people who have never done something in their lives (design,
for example) teaching students to do it professionally?

Some departments I know, including mine, have in the past
hired faculty members who were exciting and innovative
teachers and who didn't do research. Some departments I
know, again including mine, have hired former engineers with
decades of industrial experience who also didn't do research.
Both groups of faculty members did beautifully, teaching
core engineering courses brilliantly and serving as supportive
advisors, mentors, and role models to the 85% of the under-
graduates who planned to go into industry after graduation.
Professors like that are the ones students remember fondly
years later, and endow scholarships and student lounges
and sometimes buildings in honor of. And yet the thought
of bringing one or two of them into a 20-person department
faculty instead of hiring yet another technical researcher who
looks pretty much like the other 18 or 19 already there is
unthinkable to many engineering administrators and profes-
sors. Why is that?

Professors who chronically get low student ratings are
usually poor teachers. The ones who say "They may not like
me now because I'm rigorous, but years from now they'll
appreciate me," are almost always wrong.

I've heard colleagues say that they tried a new teaching
method (say, active learning) once and it didn't work so they
went back to traditional lecturing. That's like saying you
tried riding a bicycle once and fell down so you went back
to walking.

Students with 2.5 GPAs are as likely to succeed in engi-
neering as their classmates with 3.9 GPAs. However, if they
think that the 3.9 students will all end up working for them,
they're kidding themselves.

Company recruiters and human resources people who don't
bother to contact faculty references before hiring graduates
are fools. We sometimes know important things-positive
and negative -that they may not find out in their interviews,
and it costs them nothing to check.

Most faculty members my department has hired in the last
ten years or so are phenomenal researchers, getting major
proposals funded and publishing papers in top journals at
a rate that would have been unheard of back in the Middle
Renaissance when I was an assistant professor. At the same
time, a significant percentage of them have also won teach-
ing awards. It's scary! I don't know whether to be proud or
jealous of them. I usually go with proud.

***You have to be crazy to write an undergraduate textbook
You have to be crazy to write an undergraduate textbook

while you're still an untenured assistant professor. However,
sometimes crazy things work out well.

When it comes to keeping the department running smoothly
on a day-by-day basis, professors are irrelevant; the depart-
ment head has some influence; the department staff has
much more; and at the top of the mountain is the department
computer technician.

In tests of science and math, United States students are
behind students in almost every other developed country and
many underdeveloped ones. That fact should seriously trouble
a lot more people than it seems to. Education at all levels is
a primary target for budget-cutting politicians whose efforts
have been increasingly successful recently. That fact should
also trouble people on both ends of the political spectrum.
The thought that these facts may be related seems to play a
negligible role in the political debate.

If some department faculties put half as much energy try-
ing to address accreditation criteria as they spend in figuring
out ways to get around the criteria, they would sail through
accreditation with no problem whatever and their students
would get a much better education.

In some departments the faculty meets weekly for coffee or
(depending on which country you're in) tea, and most faculty
members regularly show up. Those departments may or may
not get higher ratings in U.S. News & World Report than
departments where the professors only see their colleagues
at faculty meetings, but they are almost certainly nicer places
to work. If I were a bright young graduate student or postdoc
looking for an academic position, I'd pay attention to which
of those two categories the places I'm interviewing fall into.

Educational research can unquestionably produce results
that can lead to improved teaching and learning; however,
if all educational research stopped right now and we just
implemented what we already know about what promotes
learning, the average quality of our instructional programs
would double immediately.

I love a lot of things about this profession-the autonomy,
the intellectual challenge, great colleagues, great students, and
so on. Maybe the thing I like best, though, is that if I don't
have a class or office hours Tuesday morning, I can just sleep
in and not have to explain it to anyone.

he mechanics of poroelastic materials were first eluci-
dated by Biot for purposes of describing consolidation
and acoustic properties of saturated soils and porous
rock.111 This seminal work has since been adapted for specific
purposes in describing the mechanics and electromechanics
of gelst2'31 and biological tissues.J45, 1 An understanding of
poroelastic mechanics therefore underlies advanced under-
graduate- and graduate-level study in a diverse range of fields
including oil recovery,t6' geomechanics,t7] manufacturing of
composite materials,181 myriad applications of gels,t9', 01 and
soft tissue biophysics.1], 12]
From a teaching perspective, a theoretical description of
poroelastic mechanics is typically most easily introduced
together with the idealized phenomena of one-dimensional
creep and stress relaxation.15"13" Creep refers to a change in ma-
terial thickness (or length) under constant applied force while
stress relaxation refers to a change in measured stress under
constant thickness. In both cases, macroscopic thickness and
confining force (stress) are related to strain, pressure, and fluid
velocity fields at the microscale. These phenomena provide
a starting point for presentation of a poroelastic mechanical
description because practical examples (e.g., soil consolida-
tion under new buildings[141; diurnal variations in human
height due to intervertebral disk consolidation15']) motivate
the need for quantitative study, and their well-defined physical
nature makes them suitable first examples of application of
the theory. Therefore a clear visualization of creep and stress
relaxation in terms of their macroscopic appearance and the
associated underlying changes in microstructure is advanta-
geous to students at an early stage of exposure to the subject.

Typically, attempts to help students visualize creep and
stress relaxation are made using professor-drawn sketches or
computer simulations. Strain fields internal to the poroelastic
medium and boundary conditions relating to fluid flows and
pressures at boundaries are presented abstractly, and stu-
dents must assimilate this information without the benefit of
observation of the actual phenomena. In contrast, a physical
demonstration functions "by itself' and without the direct
influence of the professor; the physical phenomena under
consideration are in plain view. Interactive lecture demon-
strations (ILDs) have been shown to provide substantial and
significant learning gains at the early undergraduate physics
level,116 17] and it is reasonable to expect that demonstrations
may achieve similar results at more advanced stages of learn-
ing. Furthermore, a physical model provides students with an
immediate opportunity to experiment and obtain feedback for
their developing intuition for poroelastic mechanics once the
theory has been presented and applied to relatively simple
examples. Therefore, we developed a classroom demonstra-

gineering physics from Queen's University

tion that is straightforward to assemble, can be easily
modified to alter material properties and time scales for
creep and stress relaxation, and provides several possi-
bilities for development of students' abilities to visualize
poroelastic mechanical phenomena. It can also be used
to illustrate convective dispersion of small solutes in dy-
namically compressed poroelastic media, which is a rich
"follow-on" topic for study once a solid understanding
of poroelastic mechanics has been achieved.


The demonstration apparatus consists of a hollow
acrylic (transparent Plexiglas) column mounted verti-
cally, filled with water and a series of cylindrical poly-
styrene blocks separated by springs (Figure 1). When
immersed in water, the polystyrene blocks are nearly j
neutrally buoyant (density 1.05 g/cm3) so that separation
between the blocks is maintained without significant a
spring compression. Spring stiffness determines the
elastic modulus for one-dimensional compression along D
the column axis. Movement of the polystyrene blocks e
relative to the acrylic column requires fluid flow between
a thin annular space between the blocks and the column;
this determines the hydraulic permeability of the structure.
Details given in the Appendix provide specific geometries and
properties for these components that have been implemented
successfully in our department.

Creep and stress relaxation during a single load-release
cycle-starting from the free-swelling state, the apparatus
can be used to illustrate compressive creep and then stress
relaxation to a compressed mechanical equilibrium, followed
by expansive creep to re-attain the free-swelling equilibrium
state. For the apparatus described, this full sequence takes
approximately 1-2 minutes, so there is ample opportunity to
repeat it several times in a single lecture in order to focus on
different aspects of the consolidation process with each repeat
demonstration. In the free-swelling state, uniform zero strain
is evident throughout the column from the regular distribution
of blocks and intervening spaces (Figure 2a). Compressive
creep is initiated by inserting the handle of the hammer into the
top of the column until it contacts the uppermost polystyrene
block and then releasing it (Figure 2b). The column thickness
subsequently decreases under the near-constant weight of the
hammer until the head of the hammer is blocked from enter-
ing the column; this creep transition lasts approximately 10
seconds (Figure 2c-f). (The hammer weight is offset slightly
by the buoyant effect of the water displaced by the handle
as it descends, therefore the force applied is not perfectly
constant.) During this period it is helpful to emphasize the
dramatic increase in compressive strain taking place at the top
of the column, contrasted with negligible changes in strain at

the bottom. Column thickness reductions can only occur with
expulsion of water, so this is also an opportunity to emphasize
that fluid flows vertically upward, and that the pressure field
in the column must have been altered by the presence of the
hammer such that pressure increases with depth (over and
above the "background" hydrostatic pressure field). When

the head of the hammer comes to rest atop the acrylic tube
(Figure 3a), the column is subsequently held at constant
thickness and a stress relaxation transient begins (Figure 3b).
At this point it is useful to emphasize that stress relaxation
involves (mathematically speaking) diffusivee transport" of
strain from high concentrations near the top of the column to
relatively low concentrations at the bottom. A redistribution
of fluid and solid occurs such that strain, or solid content,
is transported downward while fluid is transported upward
(Figure 3c-f). At the end of stress relaxation, a compressed
mechanical equilibrium is established where strain is again
distributed uniformly throughout the column (Figure 4a).
Removal of the hammer from the column initiates another
creep transient (Figure 4b), this time expansive in nature and
under a constant zero load. In contrast to compressive creep,
this time the upper regions of the column are relatively high
in water content relative to the deeper regions (Figure 4c) as
fluid is transported downward and the blocks in the column
move upward to re-attain the free-swelling thickness (Figure
4d-f). It is interesting to note that the characteristic time over
which stress relaxation occurs (approximately 10 seconds for
the apparatus described) is significantly smaller than for the
expansive creep transient (approximately 100 seconds). These

Figure 3. Demonstration of stress relaxation. Compres-
sive creep under the weight of a 4 lb. sledgehammer

acrylic tube, stopping the hammer's downward motion
and defining time t=O for the ensuing stress relaxation
transient, a) Just before time t=O and b) t=O, from which
point the column thickness is constant. The initial
condition for stress relaxation involves large compres-
sive strains (extensive dehydration) in the upper region
of the column and relatively small strains in the lower
region. Diffusion of strain and the redistribution of fluid
and solid within the column to attain a new mechanical
equilibrium under uniform strain are evident at c) t=2,
d) t=4, e) t=6, andf) t=8 seconds.

rough quantifications are useful for comparison to theoretical
models for creep and stress relaxation to be made subse-
quently (below) and for evaluation of the accuracy of models
of the poroelastic properties of the demonstration apparatus.
Poroelastic mechanics: a "diffusion" governing equa-
tion for strain For one-dimensional consolidation (in the
x-direction), the mechanics of poroelastic materials may be
summarized by four basic equations. Darcy's Law relates fluid
velocity (volume flux) U to gradients in pressure p

Combination of Eqs. (1)-(4) shows that for small departures

erned by a diffusion equation
de d2c

where the mechanical diffusivity DM is determined by mate-
rial properties at E.:
DM = HJk (l-e) (6)

For many poroelastic materials, HA and k are functions of
strain [Eq. (6)]; closer analysis of how these properties depend
upon the structure of the demonstration apparatus provides
insight into how these strain-dependencies arise.
Thickness and strain In the demonstration apparatus,
overall thickness is the distance from the bottom of the column
to the top of the uppermost polystyrene block. This includes
12 springs separating 13 blocks (Figures 2-4), resulting in
a thickness of approximately 91 cm in the free-swelling
state (Figure 2a). Ignoring the one extra block, the column
is essentially constructed of 12 repeating units where 1 unit
is a block and spring. If b represents block length and h, is
the space between adjacent blocks associated with the ith
repeating unit, then the local compressive strain (decrease in
thickness normalized to free-swelling thickness) within the
column is given by
h -hi (7)

where h0 is the space between blocks in the free-swelling state.
Therefore compressive strain is linearly related to hk in the
apparatus. At mechanical equilibrium, the apparatus exhibits
nearly uniform h throughout the column (perfect uniformity
is, however, not achieved since the polystyrene blocks are not
exactly neutrally buoyant), reflecting uniform strain.
Hydraulic permeability Hydraulic permeability may be
estimated by considering flows in the annular space between
polystyrene blocks and the acrylic tube, in series with zones
of very high permeability in the space between polystyrene
blocks. For fully developed, zero Reynolds number flows in
the annular space around the blocks, the relationship between
area-averaged (over the tube cross-section) flow and pressure
gradient provides a "block permeability" kb

kb q4-a4 (q2-a2)2 (8)
kb q-n (8)
8q2 8q2 Inq
where a is the outer radius of the blocks and q is the inner ra-

dius of the tube. This creeping flow calculation is reminiscent
of permeability estimation in other porous media"181; however,
an estimation of the Reynolds number for the apparatus de-
scribed indicates that it is of order 1, and therefore Eq. (8) can
only be considered a rough estimate. Nevertheless, assuming
that the pressure-flow relation for the space between blocks
results in a permeability which is much larger than kb, and that
for each repeating unit the permeabilities for the block and
the space between blocks may be treated like conductances
in series, one obtains

k=kb (b+h) (9)

This result, while approximate, nevertheless emphasizes that
the local permeability within the column (kI) depends upon
hi, or the local strain [Eq. (7)].
Elastic modulus The confined compression modulus in
the demonstration apparatus is given by the stress vs. strain
relation. Assuming a linear force-displacement relation for
the springs represented by the spring constant ks, the stress
associated with a change of the space between blocks from
h0 to h, is given by

i =k (h-h,) (10)
where A is the cross-sectional area inside the tube (A = nq2).
Combining this with Eq. (7) provides
H=k+h (11)

Boundary conditions and characteristic times The
demonstration apparatus represents a poroelastic continuum
undergoing one-dimensional confined compression, with an
impermeable surface at the bottom and a permeable surface
at the top. Since fluid flow at the bottom is impossible, com-
bination of Eqs. (1), (2), and (3) shows that x always
applies at that boundary. During creep transitions, constant
stresses applied at the top of the column (where the fluid is
constrained to be near atmospheric pressure) imply that strain
is constant there. Solution of Eq. (5) for these conditionsf5'1]
shows that the kinetics of creep transients are dominated by
a decaying exponential with time constant

4d 2 (12)

where d represents total column thickness. During stress
relaxation, column thickness is held constant which implies
no fluid flow and -= at both boundaries. Solution of Eq.
(5)15,13] then shows that the kinetics of stress relaxation are
faster than creep and dominated by a decaying exponential
with time constant 4r =4"'eP .These findings are consistent
Chemical Engineering Education

with the differing kinetics between creep and stress relaxation
observed in the demonstration apparatus, and they provide
some validation for estimates of its poroelastic properties
based upon its structure.
Observations with the demonstration apparatus indicated
that stress relaxation reached equilibrium over a characteristic
time of approximately 10 seconds (Figure 3), while expansive
creep took approximately 10 times longer (Figure 4). In light
of the above solutions to Eq. (5), two reasons for this are
evident. First, the kinetics of stress relaxation are four times
faster. Second, the measurements were made at different thick-
nesses since stress relaxation occurred at a compressed thick-
ness and expansive creep tended to free-swelling equilibrium.
Since the "strain diffusion" exponential time constants scale
with the square of thickness [Eq. (12)], this also contributed
to the slower kinetics of creep. For assessment of the accuracy
of estimates of poroelastic properties (above), insertion of the
above estimates for HA and k under free-swelling conditions
into Eqs. (6) and (12) provides Tcp = 56 s, which is reason-
ably consistent with observations (Figure 4). Discrepancies
between this estimate and the observed behavior are most

likely due to errors in the estimation of hydraulic permeability
[Eqs. (8) and (9)] and the fact that expansive creep involved
non-negligible departures from the free-swelling state so
that Dm [Eq. (6)] was not necessarily constant throughout.
Nevertheless, the reasonably close correspondence between
estimates and observations provides support for estimations
of poroelastic properties based upon the demonstration ap-
paratus structure.
Convective dispersion during a single load-release
cycle The sequence of compressive creep, stress relax-
ation, and expansive creep outlined above (Figures 2-4) can
be repeated with the addition of some dark food coloring to
the water above the column in order to illustrate convective
dispersion in deforming poroelastic materials. With the dem-
onstration apparatus in the free-swelling state, a few drops of
food coloring are added to the fluid above the uppermost block
and mixed (without disturbing the column itself) in order to
obtain a representation of an elevated concentration of solute
above the poroelastic material (Figure 5a). Several minutes
can pass without significant change, since transport of the
food coloring more deeply into the column occurs by diffusion
alone and is a relatively slow process. With compression, fluid
is expelled from the column, diluting the coloring in the space
above (Figure 5b). During stress relaxation (Figure 5c-d), the
boundary conditions of zero fluid flow are respected with the
visible result that colored fluid does not enter the column.
Then with expansive creep (Figure 5e-f), colored fluid is
drawn rapidly into the column and visibly dispersed through
its upper region. This dispersion of color through the column
provides a clear visual demonstration of the important effects
of fluid flows in enhancing solute transport in poroelastic
materials, above the transport rates achieved by diffusion
alone. Subsequent compression-release cycles result in ever
deeper penetration of colored fluid into the column, illustrat-
ing the dramatic effects that oscillatory compression can have
on enhanced solute transport in poroelastic materials (for
example, representing transport of nutrients, growth factors,
or other solutes through compressed articular cartilage(J9'201).

This demonstration apparatus is a valuable teaching tool for
helping students visualize the structural changes associated
with creep, stress relaxation, and other phenomena associ-
ated with poroelastic mechanics. Informal surveys conducted
following demonstrations have indicated that the physical
(as opposed to computer simulation) nature of the apparatus
make it particularly powerful in capturing students' attention
and imaginations. Furthermore, the demonstration appears
to remain vivid in students' memories as more complex
phenomena are discussed in lectures that follow. A formal
survey of student reactions to the demonstration apparatus
("demo") was also conducted in accordance with the require-
ments of the McGill University policy on the ethical conduct

theory were asked to complete the survey; 11 responded. Their
quantitative assessment of the helpfulness of the demonstra-
tion apparatus for their learning was very positive (Table 1).
In addition, their subjective comments (Table 2) provided
insights into the (apparently) student-specific ways that the
demonstration apparatus can play a role in improving enthu-
siasm, understanding, and intuition associated with the study
of poroelastic mechanics.

The time required for a fairly complete demonstration using
the apparatus, including compressive creep, stress relaxation,
and expansive creep, is about two minutes (Figures 2-4). This
duration is useful in a lecture context: the physical phenomena
occur at a rate that is slow enough to follow easily, but a full
compression-release cycle can be repeated several times in or-
der to emphasize different aspects of the mechanics involved
(e.g., fluid pressurization, fluid flow, consolidation, diffusion
of strain) without requiring extended waiting periods.
The apparatus can also be modified straightforwardly in
order to alter its kinetics. Such manipulations would provide
a basis for using the apparatus even more extensively as an
interactive lecture experiment (ILE), which has been proposed
as a way to further engage student learning through analysis
of demonstrations.[2] In this context, students could be asked
to relate apparatus structure to function. For example, as
suggested by Eqs. (8)-(1 1), changes in block radius a could
be used to manipulate the effective hydraulic permeability,
while a different choice for the spring constant k, could be
used to manipulate H A in order to alter the rates of creep and
stress relaxation [Eq. (12)]. Effects of material thickness on
poroelastic kinetics could also be examined using a different
number of block-spring units, without requiring any new
component parts.
It is also worth noting that behavior of the apparatus is
governed by the diffusion equation [Eq. (5)], and therefore
it can also be used to help visualize transport phenomena of
more general interest to chemical engineering students. Of
particular interest is the stress relaxation transient (Figure 3)
since it involves diffusive transport within a region of space
of constant thickness. Although the underlying physics is
completely different, solute diffusion and conductive heat
transfer are also described by the diffusion equation, with
solute concentration or material temperature, respectively,
appearing in place of the strain (e) in Eq. (5) (and with appro-
priate modifications to the origins of the diffusion coefficient).
Therefore if the "density" of polystyrene blocks is interpreted
to represent solute concentration, then the stress relaxation
transient (Figure 3) can be considered a representation of
the evolution of the solute concentration distribution within
a region of fixed thickness, with boundary conditions of zero

solute flux [see discussion of boundary conditions around
Eq. (12)]. Similarly, if the "density" of polystyrene blocks
is interpreted to represent temperature, then stress relaxation
can be considered a representation of the evolution of the
temperature distribution within a region of fixed thickness,
with boundary conditions of zero heat flux.

This demonstration apparatus is an effective tool for helping
students visualize poroelastic mechanical phenomena, and to
spark their interest in discovering structure-function relation-
ships in soft tissues, gels, and other materials. It is particularly
helpful because it stimulates attention, discussion, and imagi-
nation relating to poroelasticity at an introductory stage. This
provides students with a memorable physical demonstration
of complex phenomena before they confront the theory. This
demonstration strengthens their grasp of the dominant physics
before any equations are presented, then provides a reference
point to return to once they begin to master the theory and
their insights become quantitative.

Polystyrene blocks Individual blocks were machined from
a cylindrical bar of polystyrene (McMaster-Carr Part No.
8560K321). Blocks consisted of circular cylinders of length
50 mm and nominal diameter 50 mm (Figure la; measured di-
ameter 49.7 mm), with an axially centered protuberance (outer
diameter 7.1 mm) on one face and a recess (inner diameter
14.3 mm) on the other (Figure lb). The protuberance height
and recess depth were both 5 numm so that blocks could easily
be stacked on one another provided that they were all oriented
similarly (e.g., with the protuberance facing up). Protuberance
and recess diameters were determined empirically using the
constraint that they should interface snugly with conical com-
pression springs (details below) between the blocks.
Transparent column A clear acrylic (Plexiglas) tube
(McMaster-Carr Part No. 8486K515) with inner diameter
50.8 mm and outer diameter 63.5 mm was cut to 110 cm
length and mounted in an acrylic base (McMaster-Carr Part
No. 8560K321) of geometry 30.5 cm x 30.5 x 2.5 cm (Figure
ic). For mounting, a snug 63.5 mm diameter recession was
milled 1.5 cm deep into the center of the base so that one end
of the tube could be inserted perpendicularly. The tube was
"welded" to the base by treatment of both contacting surfaces
with dichloromethane.

Springs Conical compression springs were selected
because of their good force-deformation linearity over large
amplitude compression. Springs with unstretched length 31.8
mm, small inner diameter 7.3 mm, large outer diameter 15.2
mm, and spring constant 0.28 N/mm (McMaster-Carr Part
No. 1692K36) were chosen.
Assembly -Approximately 250 mL of tap water (viscosity
0.001 Pa-s) was poured into the empty column prior to inser-
tion of polystyrene blocks. With the column tilted to about 30
from horizontal, polystyrene blocks were then introduced to
the column, one by one, with their protuberances facing up
and already fixed to the small end of a conical spring. As each
block was introduced, its bottom surface could therefore be
attached to the large end of the conical spring attached to the
preceding block. A total of 13 blocks were introduced (and
12 springs). With all blocks introduced, the water volume
was then increased to approximately 580 mL, which was
sufficient to cover all polystyrene blocks with the structure
in a free-swelling state, but not so much as to cause spillage
when compression was applied.
Accessories Compression was applied to the structure
manually using a metal rod or the handle of a hammer inserted
down the axis of the tube. Very large amplitude compression
(to achieve near maximal removal of water from between
polystyrene blocks) with the rod was useful for expulsion
of air bubbles from the structure just after assembly. During
demonstrations, a 4 lb. sledgehammer with handle length 36
cm was used to apply a near-constant force to the structure
(to illustrate creep) or to maintain a fixed amount of overall
compression of the structure (to illustrate stress relaxation). To
demonstrate convective dispersion of small solutes in dynami-
cally compressed poroelastic media, food coloring was used.
Maintenance When not in use, the demonstration ap-
paratus was drained of water, disassembled, and stored dry
to avoid growth of algae or microbes.

Navigating the Grad School Application Process:


University of Minnesota
North Carolina State University

Through a simple step-by-step guide for navigating the
graduate school application process, a graduate student who's
been through the ringer and a faculty advisor who knows the
ropes offer advice to walk prospective grad students through
the process of successfully entering graduate school.

Summer: Start Stretching!
Go to Google and search "National Science Foundation
Graduate Research Fellowships" (NSF GRF). Call or
e-mail the fellowship advising office on your campus
and talk to them about this prestigious funding oppor-
tunity for grad school-bound researchers in science and
Apply for the NSF GRF. The essays take a long time to
perfect, so start working on them now.
Google "Hertz Fellowship" and "National Defense Sci-
ence and Engineering Graduate Fellowship" (NDSEG)
and take a look at them as well. Applying for many dif-
ferent fellowships makes completing grad school appli-
cations easy, as you'll have much of the essay material
already written. It also gives you a good chance to focus
and really think about the application process and your
future research.
Register for a GRE testing session about one month
from now. Just go ahead and set a date that currently
works, and then work the rest of your schedule around
preparing for it. Try to get one test in before October, so
that you can retake it in October if you don't do as well
as you'd like. You can only register for one test session
per month.
Vol. 47, No. 4, Fall 2013

If you pass on all other preparation for the GRE, com-
plete the full practice test in the free POWERPREP II*
software available from ETS ( Pretend that
you are in a real test situation, complete with timing of
sections and breaks. Doing practice tests in the computer
environment is much more effective than doing pen-and-
paper practice tests. The actual test is also long and quite
fatiguing, so getting exposed to the physical stress of the
real test environment is valuable.

Late October / Early November: Scouting
Start visiting departmental websites and make a list of
eight or so schools that you are considering by the be-
ginning of October. Leave this list flexible until the end
of November.
Go to the AIChE National Student Conference. If you
have completed undergraduate research, prepare a
research poster and present it at the poster session (the

Garrett R. Swindlehurst is a Ph.D. Candidate in chemical engineering at
the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. He received his B.S. in chemi-
cal engineering from North Carolina State University in 2009. His current
research interests lie in the intersection of inorganic colloids science and
microfluidics, with applications in immunology and emphasis on optical
characterization techniques. He also is interested in mentoring and works
with the University of Minnesota CEMS department to coordinate prospec-
tive student visitation weekends.
Lisa G. Bullard is a teaching professor and director of Undergraduate
Studies in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
at North Carolina State University. She received her B.S. in chemical
engineering from NC State and her Ph.D. in chemical engineering from
Carnegie Mellon University. She served in engineering and management
positions within Eastman Chemical Co. from 1991-2000. Her research
interests lie in the area of educational scholarship, including teaching and
advising effectiveness, academic integrity, process design instruction, and
the integration of writing, speaking, and computing within the curriculum.

G aM*emiin:-

application deadline is typically in early September).
When not at your poster, go to the graduate recruitment
fair and speak to professors from other departments.
They are at the conference to find the best students for
their graduate program, and if you're there, you can
get "in" with the admissions or recruitment chair with
a good one-on-one conversation. Receiving "offers" on
the spot has been known to happen with a good first im-
pression. Plus, your professors can introduce you to their
colleagues who may serve on admissions committees-
potentially garnering you another "in" with a program in
which you're interested.
SNOTE: When applying to "graduate school," you usually
have to simultaneously apply to both the department of
interest and the university's Graduate School, the col-
lege that manages graduate education. This can be easy
(there is a common online system for applying to many
Graduate Schools) or difficult (vastly different essays
required by the Graduate School and department). When
selecting your programs of interest, take a quick survey
to see into what category the application will fall-this
can help you manage your time in the long run.
SFinish your NSF application before working on any grad
school applications. More often than not, your statement
of intent to the program of your choice will be adapted
from some combination of your NSF essays.

Late November: Start Your Engines
Be on the lookout for e-mails from programs offering to
waive the application fee for their program. You may be
able to apply to these departments with minimal extra ef-
fort, and in doing so, perhaps you'll discover something
you didn't see in them before.
Choose four to eight schools to apply to and then talk to
your academic mentor of choice about your selections.
He or she can offer you feedback about the quality of the
program and its faculty.
Finalize the list of schools to which you're going to apply.
Bounce your thoughts and application choices off your
professors who are alumni of those departments. They
also will have good feedback about the strengths and
weaknesses of where they did their Ph.D. work.
Use an Excel spreadsheet to monitor your progress.
Keep track of the application parts you have to submit,
how/where/when to submit them, and money you have
paid for applications. Ultimately, having this checklist of
goals and progress will help you keep moving towards
your personal submission deadline.
Finish your Personal Statement and have as many people
as possible give you feedback-professors and peers
Make a count of how many official transcripts you need.

Order them all at once, early, and keep track of them.
Make sure you order them before fall semester grades
come in, unless you know you will be submitting appli-
cations after the New Year and that your fall grades will
only raise your GPA.

Early/ Mid-December: The Pre-Break Hustle
Complete the applications "horizontally," not "verti-
cally." Many of the applications are on similar hosting
websites, or at least have the same components, and will
let you save your progress. Doing each piece for all ap-
plications simultaneously is easier and will save time.
Finish all digital components in "soft" format first, i.e.,
not submitted yet. Then, in one big day, submit all the
applications at one time, once you know that they are
fully complete (this is where the Excel worksheet is
useful). Not only does it feel great to get them all in to-
gether, but you will make sure that you don't lose track
of anything.
The same applies for items required in paper form,
including official transcripts.
Now you're over the major hurdle. Take the rest of the
year off (aside from finishing fall classes!) and look
forward to hearing back from some schools over break.

Late January/ Early February: Let the Games Begin
By now, you have some acceptance rolling in. Rejoice
with each one, for it is a fantastic potential future for
you! Beers or other celebratory measures are optional
but recommended.
Begin making a calendar of all the potential visit
weekends for programs that accepted you. It's time to
begin piecing together your schedule puzzle for Touring
Season. Note any potential conflicts in scheduling among
your top choices.
For each of your top three to four programs, make it an
utmost priority to respond that you will attend one of
their scheduled visitation weekends. These organized
weekends are much more fun and well-planned than
private visits, and the professors have more time to meet
with you.
For programs high on your priorities list with only one
visitation weekend, go ahead and book it. You have to
make the best decision with the information that you
have available at the time.
Hopefully, you will hear back from all of your programs
by the end of February. By then, you might also have
taken a visitation weekend already, which brings us to
our next point...

What's not to like? Granted...

* ...some people get weary of traveling. If you do, visit
only the schools you are really serious about. This is
something you just have to gauge for yourself-there
are only so many weekends from mid-February to mid-
April. Four visits are about average, while some people
can manage doing seven. Establish a touring schedule
that works for you.
* Make lots of friends on these visits. Meet everyone, and
ask them about their visits and impressions. Talking
about it will help you make a decision in the end, and
maybe get you a future roommate.
* Finish all coursework before you leave for a trip. You
won't have time or energy to work on anything on the
trip, despite your best intentions.
* Take lots of notes. It's tedious at the time, and you won't
think there's any way you could forget that professor or
project, but you will. Spending the flight back from each
weekend noting down your impressions is a good idea.
Those notes are tools to prompt phone calls to professors
or students later, and they will ultimately help you make
a decision.

* Choosing a graduate program is the chemical engineer-
ing career equivalent of accepting a marriage proposal.
Analogously, it may be the most important decision you
have ever had to make. There are many factors to weigh,
but in the end, it's your decision alone. Here are a few
* Talk to someone about it. In fact, talk to everyone about
it. If you have a sympathetic friend, complaining about
how hard the decision is may even help ease the stress.
Either way, just actively thinking about the decision
in this way will help you approach your best-reasoned
choice-or otherwise, the gut feeling that you've always
been moving towards anyway.
* Make your decision in early April if possible. Your first
choice school will be grateful, and your other candidate
schools will appreciate knowing of your decision not to
attend so they can roll your offer over to another appli-
cant prior to April 15.
* Once you've made a decision, don't second guess your-
self. Finish strong, enjoy your graduation festivities, and
look forward to the grad school race ahead. But remem-
ber, it's a marathon, not a sprint! 0
