Processes simulation and analysis


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts) :
- the basics of chemical engineering simulation tools at various scales
- life-cycle analysis and carbon balance
- the basics of multidimensional analysis
The student will be able to:
- select the appropriate simulation tool with respect to the scale of investigation
- use their knowledge to analyse the results of a commercial simulation tool
- simulate industrial processes in steady state
- perform the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of an existing process, interpret the results
- use the FLUENT software to simulate single phase flows
- use the PROSIM Plus software to simulate general steady state processes
- use the UMBERTO software to perform a global analysis of a process within its environment.
- gather knowledge from various fields to choose the modelling approach, perform the set-up of the simulation and analyse the results
- perform an optimisation study with PROSIM
- set up simulations of unsteady-state processes with PROSIM Batch and FLUENT

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
