CHE542 Chemical Reactor Design

[3–0, 3 cr.]

Introduction to the principles of reactor design. Non-continuous (batch) and continuous reactors (plug-flow, continuous stirred tank reactors and packed-bed reactors) are introduced in addition to semi-batch and membrane reactors. Design of reactors is practiced by using the chemical reaction engineering algorithm with its five building blocks. Classical reaction kinetics including rates, mechanisms and temperature effects are studied.
