Chemical Process Calculations

Valid for: 2019/20

Decided by: PLED B/K

Date of Decision: 2019-03-29

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.

Grading scale: TH - (U,3,4,5) - (Fail, Three, Four, Five)

Assessment: Computer excercises and final examination. The grade is based on material and energy balances.

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.
