Course frequency: <p>Annually</p><p><br/></p>
First time: 2011H
Preferential right:

Master's degree students in Technology (M-MPP, M-IØ, M-MF, M-BA, M-VM).

Course contents:
The focus in the course will be dimensjoning of different industrial processes. Lectures will be given in distillation, gas absorption and stripping, drying, mechanical/physical separation methods, liquid extraction of solid material and membranes. Calculations,dimensioning and energy balances will be an important part of the course. The industrial processes are chosen because they are relevant in the oil industry, chemical industry, waste water treatment and food industry.
Learning outcome:

The student shall be able to calculate the physical dimensjons of industrial processes, in addition to being able to carry out mass and energy balances.

Learning activities:
The course is based on a combination of lectures, calculations and self-study.
Teaching support:
The teacher is available for extra support and advice during office hours, and can also be reached by telephone and e-mail.

Special requirements in Science

Reduction of credits:
Part 1 of the course is identical with part 1 in FYS 250 technical physics. For students taking both courses there will be 5 credits reduction.
Type of course:
Lectures: 26 hours, 2 hours per week and calcation exercises with guidance: 26 hours, 2 hours per week. .
The external and internal examiner jointly prepare the exam questions and the correction manual. The external examiner reviews the internal examiner's examination results by correcting a random sample of candidate¿s exams as a calibration according to the Department's guidelines for examination markings.
Allowed examination aids: Calculator handed out, no other aids
Examination details: One written exam: A - E / Ikke bestått
