Overview

Chemical process plants include a number of important equipment such as reactors, distillation columns, absorbers, heat exchangers, evaporators, crystallizers, etc. Design of such equipment should be carried out a priory to set-up a process plant and thus, it is basic step in a chemical process. Mechanical design of equipment addresses the stress and strain produced in different parts of the equipment such as shell, head, support, etc. due to operating conditions of the process. The success and failure of the process depends on how perfectly stress and strain are considered while designing. Thus, the present course enables one to learn about the mechanical design of chemical process equipment. 

INTENDED AUDIENCE:
Undergraduate students. However, this course will also be helpful for those who have substantial industrial experience while working in chemical processes and designing process equipment.

by Ali completed this course, spending 12 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
This is a well structured course about the subject of equipment mechanical design. It starts with the basics and advance towards more detailed aspects of design. The main parts of a process equipment were studied, along with the design procedures of each. However, this is an ample subject, which comprises a lot of other information not given in this course, and also necessary to be considered during the design of a process equipment, but for an introduction, is a very good course. Indian code is used, so, if you work in the western hemisphere, like I do, some ASME code revision on your own sho…
