Hydraulics and dispersed systems


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts):
- basic concepts of unit operations associated with momentum transfer phenomena
for dispersed systems (bubbles, drops, particles)
- basic concepts of fluid flow (in pipes, through a porous medium)
- principle of dimensional analysis
- mass and energy balance
The student will be able to apply these concepts:
- to the design of different unit operations: sedimentation, filtration
- to the calculation of hydrodynamics of a packed tower, of a fluidised bed
- to the design of a hydraulic network, to the choice of a pump

Needed prerequisite

Transport phenomena and reactions in fluids

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...
