Leerdoelen  At the end of the course, the student is able to:


Omschrijving  Mass and heat transport play a key role in process technology, think of mixing solutions in a reactor tank, pumping fluid from one vessel to another or heat loss to the environment. A question you should be able answer at the end of the course is for instance, how much power is needed to keep a reactor vessel at a certain temperature given the specific heat capacity of water, the volume of the tank, the heat loss to the environment and the rate at which the tank is perfused with fresh medium of lower temperature. Every student in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, or Industrial Engineering & Management should know and identify the basic principles of transport processes. You should be able to understand and communicate effectively with the persons who do! The emphasis of the course is on analyzing a practical problem, translate the process in a model, i.e., mathematical terms, solve the mathematics and interpret the conclusions derived from the calculation. Because we want (and need!) to quantify rather than qualify transport phenomena, mathematics is needed. Nevertheless, the basic principles will be outlined following a phenomenological rather than strictly mathematical approach. Emphasis will be on application and understanding. Therefore, laws need NOT to be known by heart as a formula sheet will be provided during the exam. Topics:

Entreevoorwaarden  The course unit assumes no prior knowledge acquired from previous course units but does require a solid understanding an ability to apply the Physics and Mathematics (Wiskunde B) at a level as defined by the Dutch VWO end terms.  
Opmerkingen  This course will move from year 2 to year 1. In year 1 the course will be taught in semester 2b. In 2223, the course will be taught in year 2 for the final time, this will be in semester 1b. Enrolling in both courses in not allowed.
