“Athena Visual Studio combines strong and efficient numerical solvers with straightforward syntax coding and GUI. This allows also non-experts to solve complex chemical engineering problems. I am a happy user of the package for both consultancy and teaching since almost 20 years.”
Rob Berger - Consultant in Catalysis & Reactor Engineering and Reaction Kinetics
"Athena Visual studio plays a critical role in my research group's efforts to quantify the kinetics of heterogeneous catalytic reactions, by providing reliable tools for parameter estimation, error analysis, and optimal experimental design."
Rajamani Gounder, Ph.D. - Larry and Virginia Faith Assistant Professor
Davidson School of Chemical Engineering
"We use Athena to derive fundamental models for complex gas-solid reactions from experimental data. The statistical analysis features are user-friendly and are a critical research tool for discriminating which models best describe the data."

Eighteen years ago, I started to use Athena for developing a sophisticated methodology of multi-parameter estimation for the characterization of the pore structure of catalyst carriers. Since then, Athena has been a valuable tool for our research concerning, among others, the migration of pollutants in subsurface and study of advanced methods of soil and groundwater remediation. It’s worth mentioning the extensive use of Athena for the multi-scale numerical simulation of multiphase transport and reactive processes in porous media, and inverse modeling of datasets from relevant laboratory experiments.
