Chemical Engineering Essentials from Academic Authors - Session Five: A Structure of Isothermal Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) Design

AIChE’s Leadership Webinars
Leadership Development Conference
Originally delivered Mar 9, 2011

Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) is a subject that is readily adapted to solving problems through algorithms rather than memorization of the numerous equations for each reactor type. The algorithm for isothermal reactor design (Mole Balance, Rate Law, Stoichiometry, Combine and Evaluate) which is analogous to ordering from a 'Fixed Price' French menu, is presented along with the key equations for each of the components of the algorithm. The design of Batch Reactors, Continuous Stirred Tank Reactors, Plug Flow Reactors, Packed Bed Reactors, Semi-Batch Reactors and Membrane Reactors is discussed along with corresponding uses and simplifying assumptions.
