    The goalObjective is to adopt additional knowledge related to Chemical Reactor Design and to expand knowledge gained in course on Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering. New learing units include: non-isothermal reactor operation, the concept of non-ideal reactors, design of reactors for catalytic and non-catalytic processes
    The outcomeAfter this course students are capable to solve and analyse most common problems related to analysis of chemical reactor operation, modelling, simulation and also reactor design
    Contents of lecturesIndustrial chemical reactors; Multiple steady states and hysteresis behaviour of non-isothermal CSTR; Stability of CSTR multiple steady states, phase diagram and bifurcation analysis; Optimal non-isothermal operation of PFR and CSTR; Real / non-ideal reactors, flow maldistribution and analysis of non-ideal reactors; Kinetics of heterogeneous catalytic reactions; Mass transfer effects on the rate of heterogeneous catalyzed reactions; Chemical reactor design for heterogeneously catalyzedreactions; Chemical reactor design for gas - solid reactive systems; Chemical reactor design for gas - liquid systems (chemisorption)
    Contents of exercisesCalculations and problem solving related to: Multiple steady states and non-isothermal CSTR hysteresis; Stablity of multiple steady states, phase diagram and bifurcation analysis; Optimal operation of non-isothermal PFR and CSTR; Non-ideal chemical reactors and their analysis; Reactor design for catalytic reactions; Reactor design for gas - solid reacting systems; Reactor design for gas - liquid reacting systems;
