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, 5th 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.  The grade for homework will be u= nder 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 Homework Review sessions will be solved as an aid to study. These problem(s) cover generally the same material. However, solutions to the assigned homework problems from the t= ext 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

Exam 1

150 points

Project 2

200 points

Project 3

250 points

Class participation

  50 = points based on homework solutions presented, questions, tardiness, and attend= ance in class

Final exam

250 points

Bonus

Awarded for extra work to the amount lost.

Penalties

25% of grade for each day late including weekends.=

 

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 pr= esentations 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.
