Learning Outcomes
Students will be able to design either a process device or an entire process. More precisely they will be able to design: - new devices using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) - a process apparatus or an entire production process using appropriate process simulation software (AspenPlus)
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
  • Work in an international context
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team
  • Be critical and self-critical
Course Content (Syllabus)
The course deals with the design, simulation and optimization of processes related to the production of a wide range of products such as food, petrochemicals etc. The course includes: - Process design using a Process Simulator (ASPENplus). . - Process equipment design using a commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code. - Design of Experiment (DOE) techniques to determine the necessary "experiments" that adequately describe the effect of design variables on a particular response variable. - Response surface methodology (RSM)techniques - Case studies
