Chemical Process Calculations

Valid for: 2015/16

Decided by: Education Board C

Date of Decision: 2015-04-20

Main field: Technology.

Compulsory for: K1

Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish

A key competence for engineers is to be able to break down large
problem complexes into smaller problems that are computable. For a
chemical engineer, formulating balances for mass and energy is a
method both for breaking down large problem complexes and for
describing problems mathematically.

The aim with this course is that the student should acquire a basic
ability to use mass and energy balances to describe simple systems
relevant for a chemical engineer and to be able to use computing
techniques to solve these systems.

Knowledge and understanding

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to setup basic chemical engineering models using steady-state material and energy balances
- be able to set up unsteady material and energy balances for
chemical engineering processes with one unit

Competences and skills

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to solve models in chemical engineering using numerical methods
- be able to calculate the solution to the chemical engineering relationships with computer aids

*Basic chemical engineering:* Material balances.
Mutilphase systems. Energy balances. Unsteady processes

*Computional methods:* Matlab. Numerical methods for linear
equation systems, non-linear equation, integrals, non-linear
equation systems, interpolation and differential equations.
