A chemical process consists of reaction and separation units, and the reaction unit is one of the important units in the chemical process. In Chemical Engineering II, the fundamentals of Chemical Engineering which have been learned in Chemical Engineering I, are further developed. First, review typical three type reactors, Batch Reactor, CSTR, and PFR. Then, we learn Chemical Reaction Engineering for reactors consisting of multiple continuous vessels, multi-tube reactors, recycling systems, and autocatalytic reactions. Furthermore, we deal with the reaction engineering of complex reactions involving multiple reaction components and the reaction engineering of non-isothermal reaction systems (exothermic and endothermic reactions).
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand the basics in the reactor design with recycle system
2) Understand the basics in the reactor design with series of reactor system
3) Understand the reactor design in multiple reaction system
4) Understand basics of the non-isothermal reaction
Mass-balance, Reaction rate, Reactor design, Reversible reaction, self-catalytic reaction, multi-component reaction, Non-isothermal reaction system
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purpose.
In every class, a summary of the previous lecture is given.
Towards the end of class, students are given exercise problems related to what is taught on that day to solve.
