Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course will start with an introduction of the concept of micromodelling. It will be followed by reaction kinetics and their models, interfacial phenomena and some of the models, mass transfer as well as heat transfers and different modeling approaches. The basic principles of interlinking the micro-models will also be briefly discussed.

Intended learning outcomes

The course is focused on the reaction kinetics, interfacial phenomena, basic concept of transport phenomena in fluids and the interlinking of these micro-blocks. After the study of this course, the students are expected to have an insight into the micro modelling approach towards process models.
