Leerdoelen  At the end of the course, the student is able to: 1. Perform mass balance calculations for singlephase model reactors in case of single or multiple reactions in order to determine conversion levels as well as other reactor design parameters such as selectivity, yield and reactor size. 2. Determine the rate law for a chemical reaction from the experimental data in singlephase model reactors. 3. Perform energy balance calculations for singlephase model reactors in order to determine conversion levels as well as other reactor design parameters such as reactor temperature and heat exchange arrangement. 4. Apply software tools (e.g., Polymath) to model isothermal or nonisothermal singlephase model reactors in order to design, evaluate or improve the reactor design. 5. Develop their critical thinking skills. 

Omschrijving  The following subjects will be treated: • Classification of chemical reactors. • Introduction to singlephase model reactors, calculation of conversion levels in singlephase model reactors by applying mass balance. • Tools for the selection and optimisation of singlephase model reactors in case of multiple reactions. • Energy balance to describe nonisothermal singlephase model reactors. • Software tools for modelling singlephase model reactors.

Entreevoorwaarden  This course takes place in the semester Ia of year 2, which assumes that the students have acquired sufficient knowledge especially from the following two courses at year 1:  Calculus for Chemistry and Introduction to Process and Product Technology for the degree programme BSc Chemical Engineering. 

Opmerkingen  The final mark for the course consists of two elements: written exam (80 %) the final computer assignment (20 %). Minimum passing scores are 5 for the written exam, 5 for the computer assignment, and the rounded final score of 6. To practice, at least two computer preassignments are handed over to the students during the course. These are compulsory but not graded. General feedback on the preassignments is given during the lectures and individual feedback is given on request.
