Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Objectives of subject: Systematic training of mass and energy balances of technological processes and application of transport processes at engineering modeling are key stones of this course. Hydrodynamics processes (filtration, sedimentation, fluidization, mixing, pumping), heat transfer processes(heat exchangers, energy losses, boiling, condensation) and mass transport processes(crystallization, absorption, distillation, drying, adsorption and equilibrium dynamics) are three base classes which course is concentrated on. Problem of chemical reactors is mentioned only shortly. Acquired knowledge: - The ability to recognize technological problem and propose a strategy for its solution, - Make energy and material balance, - The ability to describe the process of filtration, drying, evaporation and distillation, - Design an optimal heat exchanger. Acquired skills: - The ability to design construction device parameters, - Ability to perform the material and energy balance adequately complicated technological systems, - The ability to design an optimal conditions for the operation of devices such as heat exchangers, vaporizers, jet dryers, filters and the like, - The ability to obtain information for performing the simulation and optimization calculations on existing equipment with regard to fluctuating parameters of input parameters, - Ability to apply theoretical knowledge to more complex technological processes, - Ability to identify physical quantities the necessary to describe the process and found in chemical engineering the tables and diagrams.

Summary

Qualitative description of industrial and natural processes and using this knowledge for apparatus design are main goals of this course. Pies of knowledge from inorganic and organic technology will be developed as well as mass, momentum and heat transfer. Fundamental skills from field of physics, chemistry, physical chemistry and mathematics are highly expected.
