Description

Mass balances are used widely in engineering and environmental analyses and it is used to design chemical reactors, to analyze alternative processes to produce chemicals, as well as to model pollution dispersion and other processes of physical systems. Closely related and complementary analysis techniques include the population balance, energy balance and the somewhat more complex entropy balance. These techniques are required for thorough design and analysis of systems such as the refrigeration cycle.
This course is designed to help students to have fundamental knowledge of chemical engineering and application of this knowledge in the solving of material and energy balances of chemical processes including ideal gas, chemical reaction and degree of freedom. 
After completing this course, students will understand how to solve chemical process problems involving several unit operations, gases and liquids, recycle, bypass or purge streams and chemical reactions.

Instructor

Dr Srinivas Shastri

PhD, MBA, BSc(Eng)

Srinivas has worked in a variety of roles ranging from process engineering to academia and has gained experience in a number of areas. He has worked across cultures in India, Singapore, New Zealand and Aaustralia.

Srinivas started off as a process engineer and then moved to industrial research culminating in the development of a model of the complex hydrometallurgical process of hydrogen reduction of nickel. as a research engineer, Srinivas worked on an optimization solution for a refinery in Singapore before embarking on research into alarm Management. The software was successfully implemented in a large refinery, and the research group has spun off into a company. In a faculty role, he had the pleasure of mentoring and developing young engineers while continuing to build strong links with industry. Entering the alternative energy industry, he led the modelling effort of the shale to liquid process and significantly contributed to the design of a 115,000 bpd commercial facility.

Srinivas is currently developing, in addition to traditional process engineering support, areas of alternative energy technologies, scoping studies, and is actively involved in Business Development.
