Course purpose

The aim of this advanced course is to deepen and extend the knowledge of a group of operations where transport phenomena are the basis for design. Some operations of importance for environmental work will be treated. The emerging field of process analytical technology (PAT) is introduced.  

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • understand basic principles of mixing, crystallization, process analytical technology, drying and absorption
  • ability to select appropriate techniques for the processes above
  • formulate and solve problems related to the processes above

Changes made since the last occasion

Allow more students to work on PAT using different predictive tools ranging from simple statistical analysis and linear regression models, to multivariate analysis for students who have suitable background.

Examination form

Written examination, 20200317 8:30-13:30, approximately 50/50 theory and calculation. Compulsory laboratory and project work. Re-exam is given during re-exam period in August.

Grades
Points:   0-29        30-39        40-49        50-60
Grade:     fail                3                     4                      5

Old exams will be distributed and a few examination problems will be solved during the demonstration exercises. It is not an open book examination, but formula sheet will be handed out at the examination. I will upload a copy of the formula sheet on Canvas so you can get familiar with it beforehand.
