Students completing this subject will develop experience in critical thinking by tackling ill-defined engineering tasks as well as organising and prioritising tasks to meet deadlines. Their analytical and written communication skills will be enhanced. They will gain an appreciation of the tools and resources used in the design of process plants. Their understanding of issues relating to project management and plant safety will be deepened.
Content: Practice in conducting chemical plant feasibility and design studies through a series of assignments in the following areas: process plant feasibility analysis, sensitivity of process economics to external influences, consideration of technological, market, environmental and other effects on project viability. Integrated process design of chemical plants including the necessary documentation and the consideration of control strategy for safe operation. Discussion of the various tools and resources available for design of chemical processes, and critical analysis of information sources. Issues relating to project and safety management. Preparation and presentation of professional-quality technical reports.
On completion of this subject students should be able to:
Eleven variously weighted assignments spread across the semester; some are completed within the subject's weekly 3-hour class sessions.
