Syllabus
Prerequisites: The student has to own the knowledge about mathematics and chemistry. In particular the student should be able to solve exercises related to: calculation of derivatives and integrals, study of systems of linear equations.
Target skills and knowledge: To understand the fundamental concepts of mass conservation balances, to be able to translate physical phenomena into mathematical terms and to appreciate the reasons for having to resort to semi-empiricism in order to quantify complex problems in mass transfer.
Assessment criteria: Written exam:
- correctness of the calculation methodology and the final solution;
- rigor and synthesis in the presentation of the results;
- order and readability of the elaborate and the graphs.
Oral exam:
- knowledge and understanding of the topics covered in the course;
- ability to analyze and solve practical examples with the methods set out during the course, demonstrating reasoning skills in discussing results with clarity and appropriate use of technical terminology.
Course unit contents: Transport processes: the similarities among momentum, heat and mass transfer. Mass transfer at the macroscpic level : macroscopic balances for isothermal batch, semi-batch and flow systems; recycle. Mass transfer at the microscopic level : diffusivity and the mechanisms of mass transport; equations of change for multicomponent systems; dispersion. Elementary topics in chemical reactor design: reaction rate,order of reaction, the continuity equation for ideal reactors (batch, CSTR, PFR); the continuity equation for non-ideal reactors (dispersed model). Interphase transport in mixtures: phase equilibria, transfer coefficients, separation processes (absorption, adsorption).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Learning activities consist of frontal lectures, both for the theoretical part and for the application of the theory to practical cases and exercises .
The main tools used by the teacher will be: projection of digital notes (power point), available on the web and blackboard.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Notes from lectures, available on web.
Textbooks (and optional supplementary readings)
