Fluid Properties and Mass Transfer


At the end of this module, the student will be able to write and use the thermodynamic
equations leading to enthalpy, entropy and fugacity determination in multiphase fluid
systems. These thermodynamic concepts will be applied to calculate the potential
exchange and mass transfer properties usually considered to model and solve mass
transfer unit operation.
Students will understand the notion of mass transfer coefficient, and will be able to
estimate this coefficient in a particular application.
At the end, the student will be able to write and solve the mass balance equation corresponding
to industrial gas/liquid contactors such as bubble columns, scrubbers or packing towers.

Needed prerequisite

Thermodynamics: fundamentals and application to phases equilibria

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...
