CME3124 : Chemical Engineering Laboratory OIP
- Offered for Year: 2018/19
- Module Leader(s): Dr Yuen Ling Ng
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||5|
This module allows students to study important chemical engineering principles in the laboratory. The experiments demonstrate important concepts from the Fluids, Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, Dynamics & Control and Mass Transfer modules.
Outline Of Syllabus
Students will complete and write reports on an experiment from each of the following areas: Transfer Processes, Control, Reactor Engineering, Separation Processes and Heat Exchangers.
|Guided Independent Study||Assessment preparation and completion||1||35:00||35:00||Preparation and production of laboratory reports|
|Scheduled Learning And Teaching Activities||Practical||5||3:00||15:00||Chemical Engineering Labs|
Teaching Rationale And Relationship
A lab handbook is issued to each student. This contains an explanation of the concepts underlying each experiment and a description of how to perform the experiment.
Private study time is given for completing lab reports and for studying the handbook in preparation for the next experiment. The practical time allows the students time to understand how to operate the experiments and measure good quality data. Demonstrators discuss the concepts and theories underlying the experiments with the students during the practicals.
This module takes place in the period between the end of Year 1 examinations and the end of Year 2.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
|Practical/lab report||2||M||100||Practical lab reports (2 reports, 2000 words each & diagrams & charts)|
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
Assessment is used to measure the understanding and the acquired practical ability students gain in understanding and carrying out experiments.
During the OIP each group (of 3 students) will complete 5 labs.
As labs are completed students record data and results in their lab books.
Students will then be allocated two major reports to write up.
