(A high level overview of the aims of the course, student activities, nature of assessment.)
This course aims to introduce students to non-ideal reactors which do not follow the models developed for ideal systems. Then, methods to design different types of non-ideal reactors based on residence time distribution theory. As the course progresses, students are exposed to catalysis and catalytic reactor design. Students will be given home assignment time to time. They will be also asked to solve some problem on the board to see whether they did the assignment problem themselves or copied from someone else. Student’s assessment will be based on his/her performance in the quizzes, exams and home assignments. Students will also be judged based on their involvement in the discussion during the class.
