Basic concepts, ideal reactors, interpreting batch reactor data - no volume change, batch reactor data - complex reactions, batch reactor data - variable volume and differential method. Ideal reactor performance - batch reactor, ideal reactor performance - mixed flow reactor, ideal reactor - plug flow reactor, ideal reactor - performance comparison. Multiple reactors - mexed and plug flow reactors of identical size, multiple reactors - reactors of varying sizes, recycle plug flow reactor. Temperature effects - non-adiabatic operation, temperature effects - adiabatic operation, temperature instability. Non-ideal flow in reactors: residence time distributions, tracer tests, conversion in non-ideal reactors. Segregation and tank-in-series models for non-ideal reactors
On completion of this subject students should be able to:
|Assessment:||One written 3-hour end-of-semester examination (70%); a written 2-hour mid-semester test and a reactor design assignment (30%). An overall mark of 50% and a mark of 40% or more in the end of semester examination are needed to pass the subject|
