The purpose of this thesis is to develop a Fortran Computer Program to simulate the operation of a Linde "Double Column" for the separation of air into oxygen and nitrogen. The model outputs the number of contact stages required, the reflux ratio, the heat loads (condenser and reboiler, and the five profiles of temperature, pressure, vapor flow rate, liquid flow rate, and light component composition. From this data, the proposed design can be evaluated, and the effect of varying operating conditions explored.
