CH E 350 - Process Heat Transfer

Course Description

An integrated study of the fundamentals and the quantitative design techniques involving heat transfer in chemical processes.

CH E 350 - Process Heat Transfer (3): The objective of the course is to introduce to students heat transfer mechanisms in solids and fluids and their chemical process applications. At the conclusion of the course, the student should possess the ability to model steady and unsteady heat transfer in simple systems, and design heat exchangers and simple heat exchanger networks. The development of the material of this course requires use of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, scheduled earlier in the curriculum, and sets the basis for the design of reactors and separation processes, which are covered in subsequent courses.

Course Prerequisites

  • CH E 210 with minimum grade of "C"
