Chemical Engineering Design B
This course is Part B of a multi-sequence. Part A must be successfully completed before undertaking Part B.
Students prepare a design for a chemical engineering process which includes aspects related to equipment, location costs and regulatory issues. The design report resulting is equivalent to a feasibility study. Students work in groups, with the objective of establishing communication skills and will need to make deadlines, ‘engineering’ decisions, perhaps for the first time, and yet must recognise the effect of uncertainties in their decisions on the viability of the design.

Semester 2 - 2018
On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
Each group is required to:
Prepare a preliminary flow sheet with reasoned (including economic) arguments for the scheme selected and a complete work program.
On the basis of the preliminary flow sheet, carry out a chemical engineering design of the proposal in sufficient detail for the preparation of capital and operating costs, and an estimate of the return on the investment.
Submit a consolidated design project report. This will be comprised of individual student submissions and will include:
The work program is structured into different phases with deadlines for submission of each phase.
Complete process selection, process description and preliminary process design including flowsheet. More details will be published on blackboard.
Detailed design of a major process component (one per student). Final report should include the Phase I report. In the finished product, a clear indication of who carried out the work has to be given. More details will be published on blackboard.
|Multi-Term Sequence||This course is part of a multi-term sequence. Both Part A and Part B must be completed to meet the requirements of the sequence. Part A and Part B must be completed in consecutive terms. Students must complete Part A before completing Part B. Students must complete the sequence within a twelve month period. If students complete Part A but are unable to complete Part B within the timeframe, they must re-enrol in Part A.|
|Replacing Course(s)||This course replaces the following course(s): CHEE4940B. Students who have successfully completed CHEE4940B are not eligible to enrol in CHEE4945B.|
|Assumed Knowledge||Completion of all Year 1-3 courses.|
* This assessment has a compulsory requirement.
