Material and Energy balances for an entire process flowsheet
Detailed heat exchanger design
Sizing of pumps and compressors
|Unit title||Unit code||Requirement type||Description|
|Process Fluid Flow||CHEN10031||Pre-Requisite||Recommended|
|Process Engineering Fundamentals||CHEN10041||Pre-Requisite||Recommended|
|Process Heat Transfer||CHEN10092||Pre-Requisite||Recommended|
The unit aims to:
To demonstrate the application of material and energy balances to a complete chemical process. To integrate material from first year courses on fluid flow, heat transfer, chemical kinetics and thermodynamics. To provide an introduction to equipment design.
ILO 1.Identify principal successive steps required in the commencement of a process design
ILO 2.Explain how the principles of mass and energy balance, fluid flow, heat transfer, thermodynamics, chemical reactors and physical separations are interrelated and combined both in the design of specific pieces of equipment and in a composite plant.
ILO 3.Interact and communicate with his/her peer group when tackling common engineering tasks.
ILO 4.Manage his/her allotted time to meet task deadlines
ILO 5.Demonstrate a capacity for independent critical thinking.
