Course description and aims

「Summary]
Chemical engineering is some studies to make control chemical plants on an appropriate condition and to design a series of apparatuses (a reaction device or separation device) constituting a chemical process reasonably. In addition, separation and purification of the products obtained from a reactor is one of the most important operations in a chemical process. In this class, the separation principle, the basic design method and the basic operation of the separation technologies, distillation, liquid-liquid extraction, gas absorption, drying and humidity conditioning that are the representative separation technologies in the chemical process, particularly a petrochemistry process) are commented in this class.
[Scope]  
Understanding of the separation technologies and learning how to design separation facilities

Student learning outcomes

Understanding of the separation principle, the basic design method and the basic operation of the separation technologies, distillation, liquid-liquid extraction, gas absorption, drying and humidity conditioning) that are the representative separation technologies in the chemical process, particularly a petrochemistry process).

Keywords

Class flow

At the beginning or the end of each class, solutions to exercise problems that were assigned during the previous or present class is reviewed. To prepare for class, students should read the course schedule section and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.

Course schedule/Required learning

Textbook(s)

Distribution of the documents prepared by the instructor

Reference books, course materials, etc.

Some documents are distributed at the time of a lecture start as needed and the class is performed a commentary using Power point. The Power point file to use in a lecture discloses it beforehand through OCW.

Assessment criteria and methods

We evaluate an understanding degree of the students by the results of practice in the classes and the final exam.
