Chemical Engineering Calculation I
FCH-MAO_CEE_1Acad. year: 2019/2020
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 mathematical aparatus of 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.
Mathematics - vector algebra, differentials and integrals basis; EXCEL use;
Physics - basis of mass point, hydrodynamics, thermodynamics and diffusion basis;
Instumentaions - physics quantities measurement, transmission and processing;
Recommended optional programme components

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course uses teaching methods in form of individual consultation. 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 calculation exerceces. The exam consists of the oral examination, studens have to show basic theoretical, numerical and practical knowledge in the branch of chemical engineering praxis.
Language of instruction
