COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course objectives

Gaining knowledge in application of basic measurements in process engineering, conducting measurements of fluid flow, pressure and temperature, analysis of experimental data and writing final reports, basic use of Microsoft Office Excel in data processing.

Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course

Enrolled in or passed the course Transport Phenomena

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)

After finishing the laboratory exercises, student is expected to know:
- how to determine and measure fluid flow
- how to calibrate an orifice plate and rotameter in order to use them as a flow meter in a pipeline
- how to measure a pressure drop in a pipeline and determine pipe roughness and friction coefficients
- how to conduct appropriate measurements needed to calculate particle sedimentation rate
- how fluidization is conducted and where can it be applied
- what are the major resistances in heat and transfer and know the basics in how to reduce them

Course content broken down in detail by weekly class schedule (syllabus)

Laboratory exercises:
Exercise 1: Determination of fluid flow type and the critical Reynolds number (1 hour)
Exercise 2: Applying the Bernoulli’s theorem: Dynamic and Surface Flow Meters - Calibration of orifice plate and rotameter (2 hours)
Exercise 3: Determination of pressure drop in the pipeline (2 hours)
Exercise 4: Determination of particle sedimentation rate in a stationary fluid (2 hours)
Exercise 5: Determination of fluidized bed characteristics (2 hours)

Grading and evaluating student work in class and at the final exam

Student is obligated to attend 100% of all laboratory exercises. During the semester and after a certain exercise, student is obligated to write a report consisted of description of exercise assignment, apparatus, calculations and graphs based on measurements conducted in laboratory and appropriate conclusions. Upon completion of all exercises, a final (written) test will be held. Minimum score is 50%.
