This module prepares
students for small scale plant and equipment design. Students will learn to
apply the various engineering principles to design of a chemical plant to meet
required design and cost specifications. The included topics are: equipment
design and specification, process design economics and process optimization
This module introduces students to chemical process plant design and the integration of basic engineering principles in the overall designing of a process plant. Students participating in this module will focus on the topics: Introduction to process design; flowsheet synthesis and development; and health, safety and environmental issues.
This module covers the main aspects of momentum, energy and mass transfer in chemical processes at advanced level with emphasis on the following topics: general equations of transport phenomena, continuity equation, equations of change for isothermal systems at microscopic and macroscopic level.
This module is designed to give students an introductory understanding of the characteristics of bulk particles and how these characteristics determine such prosperities as its density and conductivity, the surface per unit volume and the interaction between particles and fluids (liquids and gases). The module will also focus on some physical unit operations involving particle enlargement or reduction and particle separation and the design of these processes equipment.
This course introduces the students to the foundation of chemical engineering at the intermediate level.
Topics include: the role Chemical Engineers, engineering calculations, process and process variables, fundamentals of material and energy balances, single phase systems, multi-phase systems, and energy balances in non reactive.
The Unit operations IV module covers heat transfer and its application to chemical processes at the intermediate level. Students are exposed to equipment design, selection and specification for exploitation of the effects of the various modes of heat transmission.
This module introduces the students to equilibrium stage and continuous contact mass transfer operations. Principles and design guideline for the most typical mass transfer equipment are illustrated. Emphasis is given to unit operations such as gas absorption, distillation, liquid –liquid extraction, adsorption and drying of solids.
