Chemical Reaction Engineering and Reactor Design II
This course covers the kinetics of heterogeneous reactions, catalysis and catalytic reactors, external transport processes in heterogeneous reactions, and internal transport processes in porous catalysts. Reactor types include packed- bed, fluidized-bed, trickle-bed and slurry reactors. The theory and design fundamentals of two-phase and three-phase catalytic reactors, and kinetics, models and design of fluid-particle non-catalytic reactors will be studied. PREREQ: ENGR 3436. (lec 3, tut 1.5, lab 1) cr 3. Students may not retain credit for both ENGR 4447 and ENGR 3447.
