  • The design and optimization of critical steps in chemical processes, such as reactors and separators, requires a profound understanding of the behavior and limitations of process steps . The aim of the course is to deepen the student's competence in the field of transport phenomena and their applications in chemical engineering, biotechnology and ecological systems. This is in order to make the student become a competent professional person with the ability to analyze and design advanced process systems.
    Particular emphasis is placed on analysis of the transport of momentum, heat and mass in systems with multiple phases, such as catalytic reactors and protein chromatography, and the analysis of flow systems and fluid dynamics impact on the transport of mass and heat, such as biotechnology reactors and mixing.
  • The course covers momentum, heat and mass transfer in advanced applications collected from chemical engineering, biotechnology and ecological systems.
    The following areas are covered:
    • Mass transport in ideal and non-ideal flow and mixing. Especially, mixture effects in mixing tanks and reactors are studied.
    • Mass and heat transport at flerfastillämpningar. Special attention is given to gas/solid - and liquid/solid phases with applications in heterogeneous catalysis, adsorption and chromatography.
    • Mass and momentum transport in microscale is studied with computational software. Especially studied are fluid dynamics effects on chemical and biotechnology mixing systems and reactors.
    The presented theory is illustrated and visualized both computationally via computer exercises and in practice via simple laboratory work.
    An important element of skill training and attitude are some smaller projects on the course key concepts. These are also part of the examination.
