Course description and aims

[Summary of Lecture] The course focuses on the evaluation methods and improvement of energy processes and operations. Based on the fundamentals of heat transfer, students learn how to evaluate the efficiency of various energy processes and to improve heat transfer rate. The course also deals with energy processes in which chemical reactions and phase changes takes place.
[Aim of Lecture] This lecture aims for students to have an ability to evaluate the efficiency of various energy processes and how to utilize energy effectively and to improve heat transfer rate by the analyses based on thermodynamics and heat transfer mechanisms.

Student learning outcomes

[Target of Lecture] Target of this lecture is to understand methodology to utilize energy effectively and to improve heat transfer rate by the analyses based on thermodynamics and heat transfer mechanisms which are required for energy operations in chemical engineering.

Keywords

energy processes, evaluation and improvement of efficiency, energy transformation

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

The first part of the lecture is the explanation of topic scheduled. Towards the end of class, students tackle exercise problems related to the topic taught on that day. Before coming to class, students should read the course schedule and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Textbook(s)

None required.

Reference books, course materials, etc.
