IMCT505 – Process Theory and Applications
Please contact the Student Enrolment & Information Centre to determine a module's availability
Process Theory and Applications
To provide the student with advanced knowledge of process control with underpinning knowledge of process chemistry, heat transfer mechanisms, thermodynamic and fluids processes and industrial applications so that they can relate control strategies to different applications and understand the role of process parameters and behaviour in equipment selection.
- Directed hours
- Self directed hours
- Total learning hours
- Learning Outcomes
- Thermodynamic processes and their practical applications
Boiler and turbine processes
Modes and applications of heat transfer
The properties of steam under varying conditions and applications
Real fluid flow as applied to a process application
- -Thermodynamic processes and their practical applications;
-Modes and applications of heat transfer - convection, conduction, radiation; heat exchanger types and performance;
-Steam properties under varying conditions and applications;
-Boiler & turbine processes;
-Real fluid flow, head loss calculations, pump selection to fit flow requirements;
- Teaching and Learning Strategy
- Learning will be by way of structured distance learning, either by hardcopy written material and assessment/s or by on-line learning and assessment. Students will also undertake a range of related practical assessments to reinforce process theory. Students will be provided with essential learning material and will be encouraged to research some aspects by way of library/database and/or internet searches for pertinent material.
- Assessment Criteria
- Written Assessment70
Achievement of a pass grade in both the written and practical assessments.
