MEE761 Intro to Plant Design
[3–0, 3 cr.]
This is an introductory course to chemical plant design for mechanical engineers. The main objective of this course is to give mechanical engineers a survey of some of the methods and practices that chemical engineers employ in plant design. The course covers topics employed normally by chemical engineers for designing chemical plants, which include the structure of chemical processes, economic evaluation, process circuit analysis and some fundamental chemical engineering calculations, and an introduction to flowsheet synthesis. These concepts will be illustrated on some selected plant design case studies.
