Course detail

Chemical Engineering I

FCH-BCA_CHI1Acad. year: 2018/2019

Chemical and biochemical processes and apparatus fundamentals. Lectures are complemented by the computational and laboratory exercises. Mass balance, fluid flow, pumping, filtration, fluidization, mixing and particulate solids processing (characterisation of particulate systems, grain size measurment, comminution, separation, conveying systems, mechanics of particulate solids, storage systems).

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will obtain the basic knowledge about the Fluids and Particle Solids Unit operations of Chemical Engineering which take place in the design and pass judgments of the separate processes of the chemical and other production technologies in the laboratory and production plant size as well.

Prerequisites

Mathematics - vector algebra, differentials and integrals basis; Physics - basis of mass point, hydrodynamics, thermodynamics and diffusion basis; Instumentaions - physics quantities measurement, transmission and processing;

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course uses teaching methods in form of Lecture - 2 teaching hours per week, seminars - 2 teaching hours per week. The other activities - 2 teaching hours per week for Practicum of Chemical Engineering. The e-learning system (LMS Moodle) is available to teachers and students.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Graded course-unit credit system. The student evaluation depends on the active attendance and the correctly solved separate numerical set of theoretical exerceces. The exam consists of the numerical part and the oral examination, studens have to show basic theoretical, numerical and practical knowledge in the branch. The use of defined literature materials in the numerical part of exem are allowed.
