|1. Introduction to Chemical Engineering.
||Fundamentals of chemical engineering. Representative examples of processes in the chemical industry. Definitions of common use: (non) continuous operation, (non) steady-state, equilibrium stages, contact between phases, etc.
|2. Fundamentals of unit operations.
||Classification of unit operations. Mass transfer-, heat transfer-, simultaneous mass and heat transfer-, and momentum transfer- operations. Representative examples of unit operations. Equipment description.
|4. Introduction to balance equations.
||General problem-solving strategies. Different types of balances. Dimensions, units, and their conversion.
|6. Mass balances on reactive processes.
||Simple and multiple reactions. Recycle, purge, and by-pass. Steady- and non-steady- state..
|8. Chemical reactors and bioreactors.
||Ideal batch reactors and continuous reactors. Constant and variable volume/density reactors. Design equations. Non-ideal flow. Multiple reactors. Rate equations. Determination of kinetic data.
