This course gives a conceptual overview of chemical reaction engineering. First, it lays a solid foundation of the underpinning principles of mass, and energy balances, along with the essentials of heat, and mass transfer and fluid flow. Design principles for ideal, isothermal, batch reactors and flow reactors are then explained. Various complexities such as non-ideal flow, non-isothermal conditions and heterogeneous catalysis are presented, and suitable methods of accounting for each complexity are explained
By the end of this course, you will:
- be able to apply simple mass and energy balances to chemical reactors
- understand the importance of heat, mass, and momentum transfer in reaction engineering
- understand the design method for common types of ideal homogeneous and heterogeneous reactor
- appreciate reactor complexities, such as nonisothermal, and non-isobaric operation
- be aware of chemical reaction hazards, reactor scale-up, and control strategies
- understand the challenges of heterogeneous catalysis.
Who will benefit
This course will benefit people who have a background in chemistry or chemical engineering who would like to understand more about the design and operation of chemical reactors.
