(145h) Laboratory and Design Projects in Energy Sustainability Based on Industrial Operations and Data (Power Plants, Sugar Mills, Pilot Plants)
AIChE Annual Meeting
Monday, October 30, 2017 - 2:36pm to 2:54pm
The modules/projects are appropriate to classes ranging from the early Soph. to late Sr. year.Â Many can be seamlessly used in the 2-4 week cycle of a typical engineering laboratory course, and even more can be used in lecture-based courses from the Soph. to Senior level, in some cases in as little as 1-3 class periods, as assignments or projects. Several suggested assignments of varying duration are provided, with solutions, in the secure area. Ten faculty at five universities have adapted the modules for use in several classes (Thermo, Intro Mass and Energy Balances, Process Dynamics, Jr. and Sr. Labs, Heat and Mass Transfer), yielding valuable student and faculty feedback. More than 500 students have been affected to date.
