Chemical Engineering Design I (CEAC 405) Course Details

Course Name: Chemical Engineering Design I
Code: CEAC 405
Pre-requisite Course(s): CEAC 302 or CEAC 304
Objective: A principal objective of this class is to describe modern strategies for the design of chemical products and processes, with a systematic approach. Thermodynamics, momentum, heat and mass transfer, and chemical reaction kinetics principles will be utilized to create chemical products and processes that satisfy societal needs while returning a profit. Information required to simulate an equipment, product or process will be given, as are the basics of using a process simulator.
Content: Problem solving strategies, flowsheets, hierarchical approach to process design, batch operations, understanding process conditions, design heuristics, pump and compressor performance, heat exchanger design and performance, separator design and performance, reactor design and performance.
