Fundamentals of Selection, Synthesis and Design of Thermal Separation Processes
Oldenburg, 14-16 (17) April 2015
Program and registration form
Senior Lecturer: Prof. h.c. Dr. J. Rarey
With the ever increasing application of of process simulation software tools like Aspen Plus®, Hysis®CHEMCAD®, Pro/II®, UNISIM® etc., engineers are confronted with the vast complexity of the underlying models and thermodynamic relationships. A sound knowledge and intuitive understanding of process engineering fundamentals is vital for the development (synthesis), design and optimization of chemical processes. It is generally accepted, that any flaw in the underlying models and parameters usually leads to unrealistic simulation results.
Within this popular course (approx. 1000 participants in the last 15 years) professionals from industry and academics will become familiar with the possibilities and limitations of currently used methods and models. The course will focus on those aspects, which we consider to be of primary importance for the successful modeling of single separation units or whole chemical plants.
Besides the thermodynamic properties of pure components, especially the behavior of multicomponent mixtures will be covered with special attention to phase equilibria, also those of electrolyte systems.
The course will be distributed in 4 parts:
Practical tutorials are included to deepen the understanding of the various topics. The course will be held in English.
