Analysis, projection, and design of chemical processes. Verification and control of facilities and systems whose purpose is to carry out chemical processes. Basis of chemical engineering. Mass balances. Balances on processes of nonreactive systems. Balances on reactive processes. Chemical operations. Reaction kinetics. Reaction engineering.
Analysis of chemical and physical rate processes using conservation of material and energy within multiple-equipment systems. Concepts of control volume, basis, mass conservation, element balances, and energy conservation in open and closed systems are applied in both steady-state and transient situations. Thermodynamic properties of fluids and fluid mixtures are addressed along with chemical reaction and phase equilibria. The use of spreadsheets and computational software for solving multiple non-linear algebraic and initial-value ordinary differential equations is introduced. Elementary concepts in process economics are discussed and illustrated.
This course introduces chemical processes and their quantitative analysis using macroscopic mass and energy balances. Simple design problems are drawn from the processing industry. Industrial accidents and chemical safety are illustrated.
This course provides the initial building block in the chemical engineering curriculum. It introduces quantitative engineering and design thinking using conservation laws and real fluid properties.
