Process Evaluation and Design I
The course uses design projects to explore process flow diagrams and initial equipment design estimates based on process and unit operation material and heat balances. Studies include equipment cost estimation methods that are developed into process economic evaluations and profitability analysis. A very important aspect of the course is the emphasis on safety, health and loss prevention in the design process. The course concludes with process and equipment design using ASPEN and/or Simulation Science's PROvision/PRO-II and an examination of optimization techniques.
