Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
The paper builds on the introduction to engineering design taught in ENGEN180. This paper covers mass balances around reactors, biological systems and separation processes used by chemical and environmental engineers in process design for chemical, biological and materials manufacturing plants and for water and waste water treatment systems. Students will be taught CAD tools for block flow diagrams, process flow diagrams, process and instrumentation diagrams, and batch and continuous process modelling using software tools. The students will apply these techniques to solve process design problems. Students in this course will also design and build a car powered by a chemical reaction for participation in a competition at the Engineering Design Show in October, and winners will participate in the ChemE car competition run by IChemE.
