On successful completion, students will be expected to be able to: 1. Explain and apply proficiently the kinetic rate laws for sizing different types of reactors. 2. Formulate and apply algorithms to design isothermal and non-isothermal reactors for simple and multiple reactions. 3. Understand the principles of heterogeneous reaction engineering
On successful completion, students will be expected to be able to:
Teaching is delivered by frontal lectures in the classroom. 30 hours will be devoted to the presentation of theoretical content while 20 hours to the solution of problems and numerical exercises. Transversal skills will be acquired through the solution of numerical exercises to be carried out in groups with the help of commercial software packages.

The exam will consists in an oral discussion on one of the subject presented during the course, in particular the design of a specific multiphase chemical reactor.
The student must identify the operating conditions for a particular chemical reactor when operating parameters change. Elements which will be considered for the evaluation will include: familiarity with the subject, clarity of presentation, tackling of unusual problems
