Annotation -
The subject is focused on the analysis of behaviour of chemically reacting systems and design of chemical reactors. The students are introduced to basic concepts, mass and energy balances of reacting systems in steady and dynamic states. Further the students are acquainted with the analysis of heterogeneous reactions both catalytic and non catalytic together with chemical reactor models used in heterogeneous reaction applications. The important part of subject is the design of chemical reactor based on laboratory kinetic data.

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

Develop mass and energy balances of reacting systems.

Describe the behavior of chemical reactors on the basis of mathematical models.

Create the model of static and dynamic behavior of chemical reactors on the basis of numerical solution of mathematical models.

Interpret the experimental kinetic data on the basis of kinetic models.
