Subject is based on:

Mathematics, Physical chemistry


BMEGEVGAV03: Chemical Engineering Fundamentals

BMETE90AX17: Mathematics A2c


Aim of the subject:

Chemical unit operations are basic building units of chemical processes. This first course provides and introduction to the hydrodynamical and thermal processes only. This includes material and heat balance, momentum balance, fluid mechanics, concepts of fluid behaviour, Bernoulli equations, transportation of fluids, hydrodynamic models, flow in pipes and channels, steady flow, rheology, viscosity, boundary-layer formation, friction factor, pressure flow through equipment, pressure drop across packed towers. Hydrodynamical unit operations: flow in pipes, mixing, sedimentation (settling), filtration, fluidization, Thermal operations: heat conduction, heat convection, radiation. Rate of heat transfer, heat transfer coefficient (film theory), Nusselt, Reynolds, Prandtl analogy. Dimensional analysis. Heat transfer of condensation. Double pipe and shell and tube heat exchangers. Evaporation, boiling point rise. Standard and multiple-effect evaporators, vapour compression.
