OverviewThis course covers Isothermal Homogeneous Reactor Design: Concepts of mole (mass) balances over reactions with ideal flow patterns (plug flow, mixed flow, batch, semi-batch, membrane, bio-chemical, reactors with recycle). Combining and sequencing reactor types. Reaction rate laws, reaction kinetics and elementary reactions. Designing reactors with ideal flow pattern for single and multiple reactions and bio-chemical reactions. Interpreting and analysing experimental reaction data.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
