Course Content

The course will present different process synthesis methods including their strengths and weaknesses. The focus of the course will be on the heuristic-numeric approach for conceptual design. An extended set of heuristic rules will be presented for the design and selection of reactors and separation steps. In addition, rules for the design of complex flowsheets will be presented which includes the design of recycle structures. A technical process is used to train the students in applying the rules.

Aquired Competences

The students are able to structure the conceptual design process applying synthesis and analysis steps. They can decide under which constraints a special process synthesis method should be used. Moreover, they are able to apply systematic methods to design and evaluate process concepts for new production processes.
