    Learning outcomes

    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 chemical equilibrium calculations. 

    ◦ E6115 deepens the contents of courses E6100 and E6105 in thermodynamic analysis of experimental data.

    Teaching methods
