Abstract

This article describes analytical and web-based models of gas separation using polymer membranes. Emphasis is placed on using simple analytical models to develop physical insight and a more powerful, web-based simulation tool to address realistic examples of gas separation using polymer membranes. Several examples are provided to serve as in-class exercises or homework problems.
