교과목개요

In this class, basic knowledge and skills required to perform material balance calculations for various chemical processes will be explained. In the beginning part, process variables including temperature, pressure, concentrations and energy will be considered with their different unit systems. In the middle, method to develop material balace equations for processes will be taught. Lastly, many different chemical processes including separations, distillations, reactors, mixers, etc, will be considered for material balance calculations. The concept of degree of freedom will also be very important in this class.

교수목표

1. Understanding units and dimensions for process variables.

2. Understanding the condept of degree of freedom for chemical processes.

3. Experience how to develop and solve material balance equations for chemical processe

주요 학습내용 및 수업진행방법

This class will be taught in English, therefore, students are strongly required to study text materials beforehand for each class hour. 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 another two- hr/week computer lab class where teaching and practicing of computer softwares (Aspen plus) 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.
