This subject extends chemical engineering flowsheet calculations to include energy balances. The concept of conservation of energy is developed as the basis for determining energy flows in and around chemical processing systems, evaluation of enthalpy changes with and without phase change, simplified energy balances for batch, steady-state and adiabatic systems, estimation of heats of reaction, combustion, solution and dilution, energy balances in reacting systems, simultaneous material and energy balances. The application of chemical engineering software packages is extended to perform energy balances. The subject will include exercises in process optimisation and the solution of ill-defined process problems.
