Course description:
Chemical reactors play a central role in all chemical processes. The control of
chemical changes for practical applications is a defining concept in processes
engineering. Reaction engineering entails the manipulation of chemical
reactions by adjusting the size and shape of a reactor, the flow conditions, and
the operating conditions (temperature, pressure, etc.).

Possible goals might be to minimize reactor size, to optimize the yield of a


certain product, to avoid byproduct production, or to make a process safer or
more environmentally friendly.

In this course, you will learn to interpret chemical reaction rate data and to use
those data to develop performance equations for single and multiple reactor
systems.

What you should review ?

Most of the equations that arise in reaction engineering are either sets of algebraic equations,
or first-order ordinary differential equations. It would be a good idea to review how to solve
ordinary differential equations. Can you solve this?

Numerical solution will be required for some problems in this class. The problems will be sets
of ordinary differential equations. The default numerical package for this course will be
SCILAB. It will help you to review the syntax that SCILAB uses, especially to solve differential
equations. You may use another numerical package at your own risk (I will help as much as I
can, but I may not be familiar with other packages).
The other processes engineering course most closely related to this one is heat and mass
transport. If you do not remember how to do differential balances, you should review how
today. Limits on reactor design also come from the thermodynamics of reacting systems.
Review the calculation of equilibrium coefficients for chemical reactions from
thermodynamics.
Student Responsibility:

Students enrolled in this class have completed eight out ten semesters of their
undergraduate education. In less than two years you are likely to be employed or
pursuing a graduate degree. Thus you are expected to behave professionally and to treat
both the instructor and fellow students with respect. I will do my best to treat you in a
similar manner.

The major responsibility that you have for learning this material is to read the book and
do the homework. If you do this, it will be very difficult for you to fail this class.
Behavior in the classroom:

- For institutional rules, attendance is mandatory. It will list every day.

- The use of mobile phones in the classroom is not


allowed, it is recommended to lower the volume of this
and to answer a call, you can leave class.

- The use of tools such as "WhatsApp" during class is not


permitted.

To conciliate the theoretical and practical knowledge


acquired in the development of the subject (Reactor
Design), will be conduct a technical visit to a company of
the industrial sector of the city of Cartagena.

Students who want to attend must be officially registered,


since with their academic and financial enrollment they
acquire civil liability insurance, essential to enter in the
facilities of most the companies in the “Mamonal”
Petrochemical complex.
