After completing Chapter 12 of the text and associated DVD material the reader will be able to:
  • Describe the algorithm for CSTRs, PFRs, and PBRs that are not operated isothermally.
  • Size nonadiabatic CSTRs, PFRs, and PBRs.
  • Describe and compare the different traits for PFRs with the following different heat exchange taking place
    1. Adiabatic
    2. Constant ambient exchange temperature
    3. Co-current heat exchange
    4. Counter current heat exchange
  • Carry out an analysis to determine the Multiple Steady States (MSS) in a CSTR along with the ignition and extinction temperatures.
  • Analyze multiple reactions carried out in CSTRs, PFRs, and PBRs which are not operated isothermally in order to determine the concentrations and temperature as a function of position (PFR/PBR) and operating variables.
