    The use of process simulation and McCabe-thiele modeling in teaching distillation is described. A student can use process simulation to model a distillation column without understanding the physical process of distillation. The McCabe-Thiele modeling technique provided a compact framework for visualizing the process and illustrating concepts and phenomena. It is stated that the process simulation is used as a tool for inductive presentation of concepts to promote a through understanding of the physical process.
