Course Overview

This course covers the details and irreversibilities found in real life chemical reactors due to the nature of design mass and heat transfer and competing phenomena within the ideal vessels. Transport phenomena, kinetics thermodynamics computational chemistry and CFD simulation are used to accurately represent the real life environment and flows within real reactors.

Who should take this course

This course is a great match for:

Chemists, Chemical Engineers, Industrial Engineers with a background in chemical reactions and reactors. Academic students and personnel looking to increase their understanding in the field.
