Module content
Lectures:

1. Introduction to the Phenomenon of Fluidization
2. Industrial applications of Fluidized Beds
3. Fluidization and Mapping of Flow Regimes
4. Fluidized Bubbling Bed Modeling
5. Solid Vertical Transport in Gas Phase
6. High Velocity Fluidization
7. Particle–to-Gas Heat and Mass Transfer
8. The RTD and Size Distribution of Solids in Fluidized Beds
9. The Design of Noncatalytic Gas-Solids Reactors

Project classes:

Each student will be provided with a set of pdfs containing lectures and technical data concerned with fluidization phenomenon. Students are then required to use the data for the process calculation and specific problems solution. The students will use MathCad engineering code for this practical activity.

Method of calculating the final grade:

Grading:
Evaluation is a shared responsibility between the teacher and the student. The purpose of the
evaluation is to demonstrate how well the student has learned specific course materials, the principles, concepts and terms relevant to the fluidization field, and to determine the students’ ability to apply that knowledge to specific engineering problems.
Grading formula: FG=PMWFlectest*w*PMGlectest+ PMWFpwork*w*PMGpwork
Where:
• FG-final grade
• PMWFlectest – Lecture test weighting factor – 0,6
• PMGlectest – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to lecture test
• PMWFpwork – Project delivered work weighting factor – 0,4
• PMGpwork – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to project delivered work
w – student’s activity; w=1; attending at least 80% of lectures, w = 0,7 more than 50% and less than 80%, w = 0,3 for more than 50% unjustified absences.
All LO weighting factors associated with part of the module (PM) equal 1.

Additional information:

The overall assessment consist of two steps:
1. Assessment of fulfilling of module learning outcomes and OLOs.
2. Assessment and grading of the quality of students work.
EIT OLOs assessed in the industrial internship:
• Making value judgments and sustainability competencies (EIT OLO 1)
• Entrepreneurship skills and competencies (EIT OLO 2)
• Creativity skills and competencies (EIT OLO 3)

• Research skills and competencies (EIT OLO 5)
• Intellectual transforming skills and competencies (EIT OLO 6)

The Method of assessments indicated in point description of learning outcomes for modulen icludes assessment of learning outcomes and OLOs
