Title:Equipment Design
Long Title:Equipment Design
Module Code:CHEP8009
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Intermediate
Field of Study: Chemical & Process Eng
Valid From: Semester 2 - 2017/18 ( January 2018 )
Module Delivered in 1 programme(s)
Next Review Date: January 2023
Module Coordinator: NIALL MORRIS
Module Author: CILIAN O SUILLEABHAIN
Module Description: Students learn about properties of materials, selection of materials for specific applications and how to avoid and deal with corrosion issues. Students learn how to design pressure vessels using a pressure vessel standard. This includes identifying operational scenarios and allowing for these in the design.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Solve problems involving forces, moments and stress.
LO2 Explain and apply the basic philosophy behind pressure vessel standards.
LO3 Identify different operating scenarios and accommodate these in the design process.
LO4 Undertake an industrial design exercise using an appropriate EU or American Pressure Vessel Code.
LO5 Select an appropriate material for a particular application taking cognisance of operating conditions and corrosion issues.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed

Requirements

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.
