Computing in Chemical Engineering Lab
This computing lab introduces the basics of computer programming and its applications to solutions of chemical engineering problems. You will use advanced programs for chemical engineers, including a powerful chemical process simulator to formulate chemical engineering problems and develop computational solutions.
Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer Lab
Concepts in fluid mechanics fluid mechanics and heat transfer as they relate to chemical engineering are explored in this lab. Tools and equipment to evaluate process measurements, fluid statics and dynamics, metering of flows, heat exchanger design and analysis and more are evaluated. Computational topics include feed loop design and solutions of boundary value problems in momentum and heat transport.
Separations, Reaction and Prototyping Lab
This course explores the operation and optimization of the production of chemicals using chemical reactors and the separation and purification of products using distillation columns, adsorption columns and filtration. The laboratory equipment demonstrates larger scale chemical plant operations. In this lab, you will also get to work as a team in designing, building and demonstrating prototypes of this equipment.
