CH402 (Version: 2019 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
CH402 CHEM ENG PROCESS DESIGN 2019 2 Chemistry & Life Science 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=3.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course provides a capstone experience that brings together material from previous courses to examine contemporary problems in chemical engineering process design. The course provides instruction in the conceptual design of processes to achieve design goals, as well as the economic optimization of the process. The course emphasizes the use of computer simulations, theory of unit operations, process control, safety, environmental and economic factors. The effect of changes in design on the process economics will be investigated. Written design reports for the capstone design project are required.
LESSONS: 40 @ 55 min (3.000 Att/wk) LABS: 7 @ 120 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
The completion of significant out-of-class design problems requiring the equivalent of 2.5 credit hour of student effort. Compensatory time is provided to complete the design requirement.

SCOPE
This course provides a capstone experience that brings together material from previous courses to examine contemporary problems in chemical engineering process design. It provides instruction in the conceptual design of process networks to achieve a design goal as well as the optimization of the network. It emphasizes use of computer simulations, theory of selected unit operations, process control and environmental and economic factors. The effect of changes in design on the economics of chemical production will be investigated. In addition, political and social aspects of chemical engineering design will be incorporated into the analysis of the capstone design project.
