    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Basic knowledge  for the analysis of systems through the formulation of conservation equations of matter and energy. Basic knowledge for the design of the main equipment (continuous and discontinuous contact) used in physical separations (absorption, distillation, humidification, drying, concentration by evaporation). Fundamental principles of the separation operation for liquid-liquid extraction. Elements of kinetics of chemical reactions; basic notions for the general design of full mixing (CSTR) and piston flow (PFR) reactors.
    At the end of the course, the student will have acquired the knowledge to design (in genera terms) the main equipment of the chemical industry. In particular, the student will be able to:
    a) know the principles of mass transport phenomena between heterogeneous fluid phases
    b) know the operating principles of the main unit operations of the chemical process industry (absorption, distillation, humidification, drying ...)
    c) apply the knowledge acquired to: a) design the most important equipment, b) perform troubleshouting analysis

    TEACHING METHODS

    Teaching is provided through lectures; some numerical exercises will be carried out in class. During the year, homework assignments will be assigned to help students to acquire the concepts covered in class.

    The teaching material distributed by the teacher will be made available on AulaWeb.

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    Tools and methodologies for process analysis. Basic knowledge on material transport phenomena, highlighting their key role in the behavior of the most common unit operations. Basic concepts for understanding and describing the phenomena that regulate the main unit operations for physical separation (absorption, humidification, distillation). Introduction to the operations of separation by concentration (by evaporation). The most important process variables will be introduced for each unit operation, highlighting their role in affectingthe performance of the equipment.

    Basic concepts for understanding the phenomena that regulate the behavior of ideal reactors. Elements of chemical kinetics applied to reactors: micro and macrocinetic conditions, series and parallel reactions, autocatalytic reactions. Types of ideal isothermal reactors: discontinuous, full mixing (CSTR) and piston flow (PFR). Performance comparison and guidelines for choosing the optimal reactor.

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Oral exam only. Admission to the oral exam only if: a) the project assigned during the year;
    and b) the reports relating to practical laboratory exercises are delivered to the teachers
    Enrollment must be done by registering online and sending an e-mail to the  teachers within 7 days from the date of the oral exam. The online registration for the exam can be done at the web page: https://servizionline.unige.it/studenti/esami/prenotazione.

     

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The Commission is made up of at least two members, two of which are the teachers responsible for teaching; the oral exam lasts at least 30 minutes. In these ways, the Commission is able to verify the achievement of the teaching objectives of the course. In the event that these are not achieved, the student is invited to deepen the study by requesting any additional explanations from the teacher in charge.

    The overall assessment also takes into account the ability to apply theoretical knowledge in solving problems of industrial interest.
