GTU Chemical engineering B.E sem 7 syllabus

(1) Summer Internship (3170001):




(2) Chemical Reactions Engineering II (3170501):



Rationale: The course is intended to familiarize the students with concepts of gas-solid catalytic and non-catalytic reactors and gas-liquid reactors, concepts of catalysis kinetics and mechanistic aspects of catalysts, design and rating of catalytic reactors and design aspects of Gas-Liquid Reactors.


(3) Process Equipment Design (3170502)



Rationale: Equipment design involves determination of all linear dimensions of equipment like diameter, length, etc. It also includes determination of thickness and weight of different parts of equipment. Readymade software’s are available for the design of equipment’s. However, to use these soft wares effectively and correctly fundamental knowledge of this subject is required. With rapid rate of increase in the advancement of knowledge, it is important that the students should know also about the latest development in the design of equipments. Students who like to work as Design Engineer, Process Engineer or as Process Development Engineer, knowledge of this subject is essential. It is also useful for Production Engineer working in process plant for trouble shooting of problem related to operation of equipment.


(4) Computer Aided Process Synthesis (3170507):



Rationale: The design-synthesis activities focus on the practical application of the fundamentals and integrates the considerations of numerous options to form a complete manufacturing system. The design engineer needs to know the basics of fluids, heat transfer, separations, and reactor engineering for selection of the steps as individual operations and their integration to form an efficient process synthesis. Energy integration is the most important component of process synthesis for design optimization. Heat Integration, reactor network, separation trains, batch scheduling are the focus areas for effective process synthesis. The study of this course will help students to take their understanding of basic subjects to a new and higher level.


(5) Nanoscience and Technology (3170509):



Rationale: To provide an idea on the fundamentals of nanotechnology with a approach towards the synthesis, characterization and applications of nanomaterials. Nanotechnology is a new and rapidly emerging branch. It is a field of research and originality related to creation of new materials and devices. Students will learn the concept of nanotechnology, different techniques for synthesizing nanomaterials, characterization of nanomaterials and its applications in different fields.


(6) Process Intensification (3170510):



Rationale: Process intensification is the paths for development of more sustainable chemical processes. Process intensification leads to a substantially smaller, cleaner, safer, and more energy efficient technology. Process intensification concerns engineering methods and equipment only; development of a new chemical route or a change in composition of a catalyst is not covered under process intensification. Process intensification consists of the development of novel apparatuses and techniques to bring improvements in manufacturing and processing, substantially decreasing equipment size/production-capacity ratio, energy consumption, or waste production; ultimately resulting better sustainable technologies. Process intensifying equipment covers novel reactors, intensive mixers, and heat-transfer and mass-transfer devices. Process intensifying methods covers new or hybrid separations, integration of reactions and separations, heat exchange, phase transition and/or new process-control methods such as intentional unsteady-state operations.


(7) Transport Phenomena (3170511):



Rationale: This course will highlight coupling between three transport phenomena with applications in various disciplines in engineering and science, and will demonstrate to the students the common mathematical structure of transport problems.


(8) Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics (3170512):



Rationale: The course deals with the numerical solution of equations governing fluid flow in chemical engineering applications. In all these fields, one needs to deal extensively with fluid flow related phenomena and one needs to resolve flow-related features of the processes and equipment. Although the equations governing fluid flow have been formulated, it is only in recent years that these are being solved in the practical applications in which the flow occurs. The course deals with the basic techniques that enable the numerical solution of these equations.


(9) Process Modelling, Simulation and Optimization (3170513):



Rationale: The Process Modelling, Simulation and Optimization of chemical engineering processes is a subject of major importance for the knowledge of transport processes; improved design process and its kinetics. The subject comprises of three parts: modelling, simulation and optimization. Modelling and simulation emphasize on the concept of modelling of chemical engineering processes, parameter estimations, decomposition of networks, application of numerical methods, data regression, convergence promotion, specific-purpose simulation, dynamic simulation, etc. Optimization includes the concept; i.e., how one develops mathematical statements for the objective function (usually economic model) to be minimized or maximized and the equality and inequality constraints (the process model) and selection of optimization technique, which is best suited to the problem characteristics.


(10) Mechanical Design of Process equipment’s (3170514):



Rationale: Equipment design involves modifications and additions to existing plants or creating design layouts of plant/equipment’s. With rapid rate of increase in the advancement of knowledge, it is important that the students should know the relevant application for equipment design. It has been observed conclusively that practice in using the reference literature and software has helped the students to secure jobs and also to perform better in profession.


(11) Piping Design  (3170515):



Rationale: Piping design and engineering is a key area in various streams of engineering. Piping and accessories constitute over 25% of the total capital investment in the chemical process industry, petroleum and petrochemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, power plants, and so on. The present course is intended to familiarize undergraduate students about the fundamental design aspects of piping components and their applications in process industries.


(12) Process Auxiliaries and utilities (3170516):



Rationale: Process auxiliaries and utilities involve the understanding of designing the process plants or creating design layouts of plant. It also includes the fundamentals of chemical engineering viz. development of flow diagrams, importance of various design consideration, various utility systems, and key selection considerations during the development and design of any process. This subject is intended to familiarize students with the basics as well as advanced understanding of various process auxiliaries and utilities used in chemical plant and how they integrate with the process facilities and overall operation.
