Course content
- Basic concepts of process engineering. - Balance based on mass and number of moles. - Heat balance of technological processes. - Flow of the fluid. - Bernoulli's equation of the real fluid. - Flow of the fluid through pipe. - Similarity of systems and processes. - Mechanisms of heat transfer. - Fourier's law of the heat transfer by conduction. - Thermal conductivity of the materials. - Heat transfer, heat-transfer coefficient. - Heat transfer without phase change. - Heat transfer during condensation and boiling. - Heat transmission: heat transfer from the fluid A to the wall, then conduction though the thickness of the wall and finally the heat transfer from the wall to fluid B.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Lecturing, Dialogic (Discussion, conversation, brainstorming), Simple experiments
  • Preparation for examination - 30 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The subject is aimed at the introduction into the topic of process engineering. Students will acquire knowledge of principal concepts about balance, flow of the liquid and mechanisms of heat transfer.
The student has knowledge about technological operations and processes. He/she can interpret new information from chemical engineering and is able to effectively use it to solve the problems in production and research areas.
Knowledge of subjects Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.

Assessment methods and criteria
Grade (Using a grade system), Composite examination (Written part + oral part)

Requirements for credit: three calculation tests during the semester, completion of laboratory exercises (number of received points for the protocols depends on the presentation of the measured data, measurement evaluation and discussion of the results, formal and graphical level, timeliness of the protocol submission). Examination requirements: demonstrate knowledge of the discussed topics, oral and written exam with focus on calculation. The result of a subject examination is expressed on a six-point scale: A "výborně" (i.e. "excellent"), B "velmi dobře" (i.e. "very good"), C "dobře" (i.e. "good"), D "uspokojivě" (i.e. "satisfactory"), E "dostatečně" (i.e. "sufficient"), F "nedostatečně" (i.e. "fail").
