Chemical Reaction Engineering Part Two: Non-Isothermal Design and Analysis
- Type: Archived Webinar
- Level: Advanced
- PDHs: 1.00
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. In this webinar, an algorithm is presented for the design of chemical reactors with heat effects. User-friendly forms of the energy balance equations for single reactions are given for Batch Reactors (BRs), Plug Flow Reactors (PFRs) and Continuous Stirred Tank Reactors (CSTRs).
The application of these equations to reactors operating adiabatically and also with heat exchange is discussed along with a case study of a runaway reaction and explosion.
Isothermal Reactor Design is discussed in Chemical Reaction Engineering Part One, which can also be viewed in the ChemE On Demand archive.
Scott Fogler is Past President of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers for 2010. He received his B.S. from the University of Illinois and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Colorado. He is the Ame and Catherine Vennema professor of chemical engineering and the Arthur F. Thurnau professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He is also the author of the 'Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering', which is the dominant book in this area worldwide, and co-author with Steven LeBlanc of the book 'Strategies for Creative Problem Solving'.
