Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to analyze and solve problems in the area of chemical process engineering, with the focus on homogeneous and heterogeneous reaction systems in reactors and processes.

After successful completion of the course, students are able to:

  • provide the basic equations of mass and heat transfer, to make the simplifying assumptions sufficient for a given problem, to develop a mass, species and energy balance and to simplify the equations for this problem;
  • Describe basic and advanced terms of chemical reaction engineering (reaction rates, ideal and real reactor models, reaction networks, residence time distributions, ...) and state the most important descriptive equations;
  • describe the differences between homogeneous and heterogeneous reaction systems in combination with heat and mass transfer and specify different models which are used to simulate them mathematically (e.g. develop a Digital Twin);
  • outline the meaning and benefit of dimensionless Quantities using simple examples and, in addition to the classic dimensionless Quantities (Nusselt, Reynolds, Prandtl, ...) to use the concept of Chemical Similarity and its areas of application.

Subject of course

The contents of this lecture is to understand the modern tools of chemical engineering to optimize an existing or to design a new process. Emphasis will be given on practical, relevant problems from the field of chemical engineering e.g. scale-up, the importance of lab-scale studies.
