Transport Processes in Biological Systems - CE4-31

Aims

This is an elective course offered to the fourth year MEng students and as a module for MSc courses in Advanced Chemical Engineering. The aim of the course is to introduce the basic principles and concepts of fluid flow, heat and mass transfer relevant to physiological and biological systems, as well as more advanced mathematical models. The course is designed to place an emphasis on developing a quantitative understanding of the underlying physical, chemical and biological phenomena. Practical problems and case studies will be included.

Heat Transfer - CE2-02-1

Aims

The aim of the project is to integrate knowledge gained from CE2 Reaction Engineering I and CE1 Chemical Engineering with CE2 Process Dynamics and Control and apply this to the design of a reactor for chemical conversion with an appropriate control structure.

Further aims are to become familiar with the control systems simulations package Simulink and to gain proficiency in the use of MATLAB for real reaction rate equations and numerical integration. Simulink will enable study of dynamic effects on control of the reactor designed in this project. This project will also provide reaction engineering experience applicable to the final year design project.
