Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

After the course the student can:
describe industrial problem as a system in terms of its thermodynamic variables,
use thermochemical properties of systems and their analytical expressions in the simulation of properties and processes,
analyse and model experimental data in the calculations of chemical equilibria,
assess experimental data and use the Calphad method

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Thermodynamic modelling and simulation project work comprises the use of selected software and its use in a complex industrial-type application or a specific assessment work.
