Hours & Credits
OverviewAdvanced thermodynamics and separations. In this course, the student will learn to apply his or her fundamental knowledge of transport phenomena with concepts in thermodynamics to develop models for industrial separation operations, in conjunction with additional study of thermodynamics of phase equilibria for multi-component systems. The modelling will include graphical, shortcut, and rigorous models for stagewise operations. Separation operations examined include liquid-liquid extraction, binary and multicomponent distillation, azeotropic, extractive and reactive distillation; solid-liquid extraction and absorption. The student will learn how to synthesize separation sequences in a way to conserve energy and minimise capital losses.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
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.
