CHEME 4320

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

Laboratory experiments in fluid dynamics, heat transfer, mass transfer, separations, process control, and other unit operations fundamental to large-scale chemical processing. Data collection, analysis, and interpretation. Technical report writing. Process design and scale-up based on pilot-plant data.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: CHEME 3230, CHEME 3240, CHEME 3320, and CHEME 3900.

Outcomes
  • Design experiments and choose operating conditions to acquire data for solving a stated technical problem. (a,b,c,k)
  • Operate pilot-plant equipment and collect data accurately and safely. (b,k)
  • Use rigorous statistical methods, e.g. linear regression analysis and propagation of errors, to identify sources of uncertainty in measured variables and in parameters derived from curve-fits. (a,b)
  • Prepare graphs, data tables, and process flowcharts for concise, unambiguous presentation of results. (e,g,k)
  • Use results of small-scale, pilot-plant experiments for preliminary design of large-scale process equipment. (a,c,e)
  • Write laboratory reports that use graphs, data tables, process flowcharts, and equations to describe the methodology and present the results of data collection, data analysis, and process design. (a,g)
  • Work in four-person teams throughout. (d,g)
