Clark, William M.
The main purpose of this project was to utilize the computer modeling software, Comsol Multiphysics 3.3, to recreate the Cosmic Cannon experiment that was studied in the chemical engineering thermodynamics class. By setting up the Cosmic Cannon and getting it running again, it allowed us to revisit all the calculations and ideas that the chemical engineering students dealt with not too long ago. It was a main goal to take a look at the results that were calculated from the experiment itself and then reproduce the same results through the computer model.
