Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to explain basic parameters of chemical reaction engineering, to setup mass and energy balance for ideal reactor models as stirred tank reactor, plug flow reactor, stirred tanks in series as well as reactor combinations and to determine residence time distribution models for ideal and real reactors

Subject of course

Definition of basic terms used in Chemical Process Engineering, reaction analysis - classification of reactions, preparation of simple material and energy balances, introduction to reactor design, single ideal reactors (stirred tank reactor, continuous stirred tank reactor, plug flow reactor), design for single reactions, size comparison, basic multiple-reactor systems (reactors in series and or in parallel, equal-size mixed reactors in series), residence time distribution of fluid in chemical reactors (age distribution of fluid leaving a reactor, F-curve), simple energy balances for isothermal and adiabatic operations.
