ChE 372 Unique # 14640 Course Syllabus CHE 372: Chemical Reactor Analysis and Design Unique Number: 14640 Instructor : Teaching Assistant : Dr. Hal Alper Johnny Blazeck CPE 5.408; P: 471-4417 CPE 5.128 Office Hrs: Office Hrs: M 2 - 4 PM T 10 – 11 AM (CPE 5.128) F 2 - 3 PM Th 1:30 – 3:30 PM (CPE 4.446) [email protected] [email protected] Grader : Lacy Bishline [email protected] Lectures: M, W, F 12:00 – 1 PM (CPE 2.218) Please be punctual. Attendance is strongly suggested as there will be unannounced quizzes (see quizzes section below). Most lectures (and some quizzes) will be based on reading assignments that you should complete prior to coming to class. Recitation: W 3 – 4 PM (CPE 2.220) Please be punctual. Attendance is not compulsory but is strongly encouraged as there will be unannounced quizzes (see quizzes section below). Your TA will be going over practice problems and answering questions at these sessions. Course Goals and Overview: Chemical Reactor Analysis and Design is a unique, capstone course in the chemical engineering curriculum that distinguishes this field from other engineering disciplines. In this regard, this course can be seen as a culmination of your undergraduate education in chemistry, material and energy balances, transport phenomena, numerical methods, and thermodynamics. Overall, this course will provide an introduction to the principles and calculation techniques used to analyze and design chemical reactors for the production of petrochemicals, advanced materials, polymers, and biochemicals. This course is designed to: Provide you with the fundamentals of material and energy balances as applied to chemical reactor design for ideal reactors Offer practice in defining problems, analyzing data, and designing chemical processes Provide you with an understanding of rate laws and their derivation. Provide you with an appreciation for the topics of heterogeneous catalysis, biological catalysis and non-ideal reactor schemes. Course Prerequisites: A grade of at least a C in ChE 322, 348, and 354. A comprehensive knowledge of transport phenomena is essential. This course relies on shell balances and the constituent equations to develop the material and energy balances
