ERT 316/3 REACTION ENGINEERING
Reaction Engineering is concerned with the exploitation of reactions on a commercial scale. Its goal is to familiarize with different designs of reactors. It also emphasizes qualitative arguments, simple reactor sizing method, graphical procedures, and frequent comparison of capabilities of the major reactor types. Simple ideas are treated first, and then extended to more complex problems.
Ability to categorize design equation for most common industrial reactors and calculate the rate law and rate law parameters.
Ability to calculate Residence Time Distribution (RTD) functions in non-ideal reactors.
Ability to develop conversion and sizing for chemical reactors and to explain steady-state isothermal reactor.
Ability to evaluate the difference of catalysis and catalytic reactions.
