Introduction of a Population Balance Based Design Problem in a Particle Science and Technology Course for Chemical Engineers
Ehrman, Sheryl H.; Castellanos, Patricia; Dwivedi, Vivek; Diemer, R. Bertrum
Chemical Engineering Education, v41 n2 p88-92 Spr 2007
A particle technology design problem incorporating population balance modeling was developed and assigned to senior and first-year graduate students in a Particle Science and Technology course. The problem focused on particle collection, with a pipeline agglomerator, Cyclone, and baghouse comprising the collection system. The problem was developed by a representative from industry and a University of Maryland faculty member with input from the graduate student teaching assistant as well as students via anonymous feedback.
