Course Objectives

To provide an understanding of basic concepts & principles of separation processes and fundamental knowledge of mass transfer operations. Illustrate how to solve the problems by using fundamental relations involved in process industries. To master the skills of applying this knowledge to perform calculations of design and operation for separation related unit operations. To be able to identify the suitable process for particular separation problem

Suggestions

Always read the text with pencil, paper and calculator in hand; work through the details of the basic concepts and mathematical formulations and supply any missing steps.

Whenever necessary, go back to the textbooks to brush up on fundamentals and basics etc. This is an excellent time to...
