Last update: Jahoda Milan doc. Dr. Ing. (14.11.2018)

The students will be able to

  • orientate oneself in the problematic of chemical reactors,
  • to understand of transport and reaction processes taking place in different types of reactors,
  • to formulate and solve mathematical models of heterogeneous reactors,
  • to orientate in up-to-date taking of heterogeneous reactors technologies.
