Introduction to Multiphase Systems
- ECTS credits10
- Teaching semesterSpring
- Course codeENERGI353
- Number of semesters1
- LanguageEnglish. Norwegian if only Norwegian students attend.
Objectives and Content
The subject introduces multiphase systems in the processing industry. The course includes: momentum transport in and between continuous (fluid) and disperse (bubbles, drops or particles) phases, applications to multiphase flow phenomena, heat and mass transfer between continuous and dispersed phases applications (e.g. to contacting towers), chemical reaction with simultaneous transport of momentum, heat and mass between the phases, and applications to multiphase reactors.
On completion of the course
the student should have the following learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence:
- Is able to explain the basic types of multiphase reactors in process industries
- Can calculate simple chemical multiphase reactors
- Can develop simple mathematical models in multiphase flows
- Can quantify exchanges of momentum, heat and material in the separate phases and between phases in multiphase systems
- Can calculate response times and coupling parameters in multiphase systems
- Can explain issues regarding formulating momentum-, energy- and material balance in multiphase systems
- Can identify multiphase flows in process industries and nature
- Can apply fundamental mathematical models in process industries
