Advanced Chemical Engineering Design Practice Final Year Design - CENG97006
The Design Project has the objective of giving students experience of advanced design practice by carrying out a complex design task in as realistic a way as possible. The desired learning outcomes include producing a comprehensive design in response to an open-ended brief, while working in a large team, under realistic time pressure and on the basis of limited information.
The main aims of the Design Project are to help students:
• develop skills in complex design problem-solving including technical, safety, environmental and economic aspects
• develop skills in the effective management of work and decision making in large groups
• develop skills in the presentation (oral and written) of complex techno-economic results
Safety and Loss Prevention - CENG96005
This course introduces hazards which are most often encountered in industrial process plants; it offers students an opportunity to acquire basic skills in all but one of the main areas of Safety and Loss Prevention. The core lecture programme deals with elementary stress analysis (“mechanics”), process safety and plant reliability; a parallel stream introduces fundamental concepts of corrosion, a particularly important hazard. Environmental impact is considered in CE3-06 Environmental Engineering.
The aim of the course is to enable students to recognise, analyse and where possible quantify, by core engineering knowledge and numerical methods, the sound conditions and limits of design and operation that will ensure the integrity and continuation of production of process plant, without unacceptable impact on its environment.
