Course

T= his course deals with separations based on the concept of equilibrium-staged processes, and as such requires thorough knowledge of thermodynamic phase equilibrium. Also required are competence in material and energy balances= and computer programming and usage. Anyone deficient in any of these areas can expect to do very poorly in this course.

 

 

Textbook

The principal textbook for t= his course is "Equilibrium Staged Separations" by Phillip C. Wankat, Prentice Hall 1988, ISBN: 0-13-500968-5

 

 

The secondary textbook for t= he course is "Transport Processes and Unit Operations, 4th ed.," by Christie Gea= nkoplis, 2003, ISBN: 0-13-101367-X. Most of the readings and required homework assignments are from Wankat;

 

A= nother book that you may find useful is "Properties of Gases and Liquids, 5= th ed." By Reid, Prausni= tz and O'Connell; it is an invaluable source of physical/thermodynamic prope= rty data.

 

 

Homework

Assigned homework problems w= ill have their solutions written on the blackboard by randomly selected stude= nts. Grade for homework will be under class participation.

 

Students may not obtain the solutions from a fellow student after they have been called upon. Students may, of course, work on the homework assignments together (and are, in fact, encouraged t= o do so); however, each student should come to class prepared to present each problem and thus should have their own copy (not a Xerox copy) of the homework solution(s).

 

In addition, pertinent problem(s) during the Workshop sessions will be solve= d as an aid to study. These problem(s) cover generally the same material. Howe= ver, solutions to the assigned homework problems from the text will not be made available in order to try to protect their integrity for future semesters= .

 

 

Projects

T= his is an engineering design class, and as such projects are central to the cour= se. In this course, there will be three projects that together will constitut= e a large portion of your grade for the course. The 2nd and the 3rd will be team efforts, so choose your teams carefully. Each team shall have two= or three members.

 

 

Grading

Final grades are calculated as follows:

 

Project 1:

100 points

Presentation 1

50 points

Exam 1

100 points

Project 2

100 points

Presentation 2

  50 = points

Exam # 2

150 points

Project 3

200 points

Class participation

  50 = points

Final exam

200 points

 

Final course grades will be assigned on the following basis:

910+ - 1000  A

870+ -   910  B+

800+ -   870  B

770+ -   800  C+

700+ -   770  C

600+ -   700  D

      0 -    600 F

 

These will be difficult to a= ttain. There is little chance that these cutoffs will be altered as a result of overall class performance (i.e., no curve).

 

G= rade I (incomplete) and one comprehensive make-up exam will be given only under extraordinary circumstances and at the sole discretion of the instructor<= /span>

Policy on Cheat= ing

Students found cheating/plagiarizing will be immediately referred to the Dean of Students and the NJIT Committee on Professional Conduct and subject to Disciplinary Probation, a permanent marking on the record, possible dismissal and a grade of 'F' in the course. All submitted assignme= nts are carefully checked for similarities, and plagiarism and guilty students will be identified. You have chosen the field that requires that high= est degree of ethics.  You will = be held to the highest standard.

Electronic Copi= es

All reports and presentations material must be sent via email attachment.  Your reports will be processed t= hrough Turnitin.Com to check for similarities between your report, your classmate’s reports, prior student reports, and the entire internet.  Mass similarities= will be considered a violation of the ethics policy.
