The notebook BTX_Distillation_Dynamics.nb computes the composition of benzene, toluene and p-xylene versus time in all column plates. The steady state values are plotted versus the plate number for all three components. This Mathematica program is adapted from an example given in Chemical Engineering Dynamics by Ingham et al., Wiley-VCH, 2000.
