15 Credits SPRING



Aims/Description: This course aims to develop knowledge and expertise in basic principles of chemical engineering design. In the Spring semester, the module is extended to the development of energy balances as applied to a wide range of chemical processes such as mixers, distillation columns, evaporators and reactors. The module also provides elementary techniques for the evaluation of vapour-liquid and gas-liquid equilibria, and gives an introduction to the unit operation - distillation.
