ChE-403 / 4 crédits

Enseignant: Luterbacher Jeremy

Langue: Anglais


Summary

The theoretical background and practical aspects of heterogeneous reactions including the basic knowledge of heterogeneous catalysis are introduced. The fundamentals are given to allow for the use of chemical reactors to study reaction kinetics and test various mechanistic assumptions.

Content

Keywords

Reactor design, non-ideal reactors, heterogeneous catalysis, residence time distribution, transport limited reactions and microkinetic analysis.

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

Module “Chemical Engineering” in Bachelor cycle

 

Assessment methods

Two written controls during the semester; each control is based on the assessment via 100 points, totally 200 points; the final grade is calculated as: (total pointsx5 /200 +1); the threshold is 111.

For example: (111x5/200+1→ 4.0)

**********

Deux contrôles écrites pendant le semestre; chaque contrôle est basé sur l'évaluation par 100 points, totalement 200 points; la note finale est calculée comme la suite: (points x 5 /200+1);

par exemple : (111x5/200+1→ 4.0)
