CHE 364S CHE 364S. Chemical Process Safety. 3 Hours.
Emphasizes quantitative engineering analysis based on the application of mass and energy balances, fluid mechanics of incompressible, compressible and two-phase fluids, heat transfer and conservation of energy, diffusion and dispersion under highly variable conditions, reaction kinetics, and process control. Subjects include various probabilistic and statistical methods to characterize accident and loss performance, techniques for process hazard analysis, risk assessment, and accident investigations. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Chemical Engineering 364S and 379 (Topic: Chemical Process Safety) may not both be counted. Offered on the letter-grade basis only. Prerequisite: Chemical Engineering 319 (or 353), 253K, and 354.
