Annotation -
The course is focused on basic chemical-engineering calculations. Utilizations of equations of state and thermodynamic models which are implemented in chemical-engineering simulators are demonstrated. Theory background for calculations and basic equations are given in lectures. Computational skills are taught with the help of the Maple software. Real behaviour of fluids is usually considered in computational problems which are mainly focused on oil treatment.

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

  • calculate state behaviour of real fluids and mixtures
  • calculate phase equilibria in two-component systems (considering real behaviour)
  • solve chemical equilibrium in simplified systems

(all calculations performed in the Maple software or Wolfram Mathematica)
