  1. Lecture 14Chemical Engineering Director of Undergraduate Studies: Professor Kofke, 510 Furnas Director of Graduate Studies: Professor Mountziaris, 905 Furnas Chair Professor Lund, 306 Furnas

  2. Looking Back to the Turn of the Last Century... • Fear that soon it would not be possible to feed all the people in the world. • Chemical Engineers solved the problem • Haber (1918 Nobel Prize)/Bosch (1931 Nobel Prize) • Process for synthesis of ammonia • 350 to 500 ºC & ~ 1.1 Tons/in2 • And now at the turn of the 20th century: • Global warming • Protection of the environment • Depletion of natural resources (synthetic fuels)

  3. Ammonia Synthesis Plant

  4. Jobs CEs Do • Flow (pump/compressor size, pipe size, pressure drops through equipment) • Reactor Design/ Reaction Engineering • Heating, Cooling, Refrigeration, Heat Transfer • Materials (polymers, metals, ceramics, catalysts) synthesis and/or selection • Separation (reactants, final products) by many methods (distillation, absorption, adsorption, crystallization, etc.)

  5. Jobs CEs Do • Plant Design / Process Optimization • Safety • Plant Operation • Environmental / Waste Treatment • Sales, Marketing, Distribution • Law, Medicine, Management • Education


  6. Tools CEs Use • Mathematics (algebra, calculus, differential equations, numerical methods) • Chemistry (inorganic, organic, physical) • Mass, Energy and Momentum Balances • Thermodynamics and Kinetics • Transport Phenomena / Transfer Operations • Unit Operations • Process Control & Optimization • Process Simulators • Modeling and Computation
