교과목개요

Developing and solving material balance equations are basic and fundamental steps to design almost all chemical processes including separation, reaction, heating, and cooling processes. In this class, students will be acquiring various knowledges associated with these subjects. Especially definitions of system variables including both intensive and extensive variables are introduced at the begining of the class followed by the methods of converting one unit into another for each variables. Later, the concept of the degree of freedom is provided as it is required to set up independent material balance equations for a given process. Finally, various practical examples are introduced for students to pratice developing and solving material balance equations. Computer softwares specifically developed to solve material balance equations is to be taught tthrough the cumputer lab classes.

교수목표

1. Understanding various unit systems for mass, concentration, temperature, and pressure.

2. Understanding unit conversions between different unit systems.

3. Understanding how to set up material balance equations for different types of processes and to solve the equations.

4. Understanding the relations between intrinsic variables for several phases at equilibrium with each other.

주요 학습내용 및 수업진행방법

This class will be taught in English, therefore, students are strongly required to study text materials beforehand for each class. This class is composed of two sessions; two-hr/week theory class in which various theroretical backgrounds of process calculations will be dealt with and one hr/week computer lab class where teaching and practicing of computer softwares (Aspen plus or Pro-II) developed for process calculations will be performed on one computer for each student in the computer lab. After teaching each chapter of the text, students will be given one-hr quize on the selected but modified examples in the text. Mid-term and final examinations will also be taken in the middle and at the end of the semester.
