AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Formative aims: To study the thermodynamics of open or variable-composition systems with reference to the specifics of  non ideal systems.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Formative aims: To study the thermodynamics of open or variable-composition systems with reference to the specifics of  non ideal systems. In particular, the course will furnish the means of determining thermodynamic properties, beginning with volumetric data, and calculating the chemical equilibrium among phases and in reacting systems to be utilised in the study of effective process engineering systems.The transversal skills in terms of communication skills, ability to work in team and learning skills will be acquired through numerical exercises to be carried out in a group and discuss during  the final exam.

TEACHING METHODS

Didactic works: The course consists of about  35 hours of lessons and 25 hours of practical work conducted in the classroom.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Main contents: Fugacity in gas and liquid mixtures. Excess properties and activity coefficients. Estimate of activity coefficients for binary and multicomponent systems. Duhem Margules equation. Tests for thermodynamic consistency. Fugacity coefficients for pure component and in mixture. State equations. The law of corresponding states: two and three parameter equations. Thermodynamic properties from volumetric data. Estimation of fugacity coefficient. Departure functions. Some numerical examples. Fluid phase equilibrium in non-ideal binary and multicomponent systems. Some numerical examples. Reaction equilibrium for non-ideal systems.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

Examination procedure:  An oral exam and a discussion and evaluation of numerical exercises performed independently by the student.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The student's assessment involves an oral test in which two questions are asked about the topics presented in the lesson and discussed the numerical exercises performed by the student independently. The student will have to demonstrate how to set and solve numerically the phase and reaction equilibrium problems for non-ideal systems and estimate the thermodynamic properties of pure components or non-ideal mixtures.

Prerequisites:  It is anticipated that students will have a solid grounding in mathematics, chemistry, physics,  thermodynamics of ideal system to be able to deal with the subject matter, but no formal prerequisite is required.
