Chemical reactors (AGH year 1)

Module description

The aim of the course is to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the theory of chemical reactors engineering and enhanced skills in formulation and analysis of mathematical ideal models of reactors. The classes aim is to enhance calculation of chemical reaction kinetics and homogeneous reactors.
The course includes: Mass balance of reactor. Stoichiometry of elementary and complex reactions. Thermal effects of reaction. Chemical reaction equilibrium.
Reaction kinetics. Elements of calculation isothermal reactors and reactors with thermal effects. Ideal Reactors: Batch Reactor, Continuous Stirred-Tank Reactor (CSTR) and Continuous Plug-Flow Reactor (PFR).Distribution of residence time in the reactors. Reactors of liquid-liquid system.Pseudohomogeneous and heterogeneous models. Industrial reactors. Flow reactors with mixer and tubular reactors. Fixed, moving and fluidized-bed reactors.
Problems for students to solve e.g.:
-select the most appropriate chemical reactor
-depending of mode of operation.

Auditorium classes
Calculation of current composition of reaction mixture. Determination of kinetic equations from experimental data. Modelling of the batch chemical reactors, the
isothermal continuous stirred tank reactors and isothermal cascades, the continuous plug-flow reactors.
