First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics. PVT behavior of pure substances, Equations of State for Gases and Liquids. Phase Equilibria. Mass and Energy and Entropy Balances for Open and closed Systems, Reversibility and Equilibrium. Application of Thermodynamics to Flow Processes. Heat Effects due to Chemical Reactions and during Combustion. Relations between thermodynamic quantities.
CME 315 Numerical Methods for Chemical Engineering Analysis
Mathematical modeling lies at heart of chemical engineering. Understanding, predicting, designing, optimizing, and controlling chemical processes and phenomena all require the development of good mathematical models. This course provides students with the concepts, processes, and tools for an introduction to such chemical engineering calculations with a mathematical software package (Mathematica). In addition, this course offers students opportunities to learn how to use the software for statistics problems, which are crucial for scientific experiments as well as business.
CME 322 Heat and Mass Transfer
Heat transfer by conduction, convection, radiation exchange, and the use of conservation of energy law to solve many heat transfer problems. Principles and theory of diffusion, mass transfer in non-stationary and stationary mediums. Similarity between mass and heat transfer will also be emphasized.
CME 369/ESM 369 Polymer Engineering
ESM 533 Polymeric Materials
This course provides students with an opportunity to learn fundamentals of polymer science and engineering. Topics covered include classification of polymers, structures of polymers, morphology of polymers, thermodynamics of polymers, phase separation and phase transition of polymers, crystallization of polymers, and commercial polymer production and processing.
