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. Performing computer-aided balances in the chemical engineering software package HYSYS is covered, as well as the use of Microsoft Excel in engineering calculations. Students are also taught concepts in process safety, with an emphasis on calculations related to fires and explosions. The subject will include exercises in process optimisation and the solution of ill-defined process problems.
