A student can: - Select, size and scale-up different mixing devices (stirred tanks, in-line mixers) for blending and multiphase mixing (solid-liquid mixing, liquid and gas dispersions) based on short-cut design methods. - Understand basics of fluid rheology and can adapt the information to mixing design. - Understand computational fluid dynamics (CFD) calculations and is able to solve basic fluid mixing problems with CFD programs.


Design methods and scale-up of fluid mixers, rheology, mixing effects in chemical reactions.
Theoretical basis of CFD and chemical engineering aspects.
