Level of study:
Prerequisites for registration:
tudents have to take 3 various laboratory works, work out and defence reports from each of laboratory work, results presentation - one by public oral presentation.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The course Laboratory exercises of chemical and energetical engineering is connected with information obtained on lectures and seminars. Laboratory work teach students measure experimental data by liquid and gas flowing, flow rate measurements, presure drop and centrifugal pump output, heat transfer and thermal insulation properties. Evaluate data and prepare reports from each laboratory work.
Measuring of heat flux and thermal conductivity of isolation
Measuring of convection heat transfer coefficient, calculation of overal heat transfer coefficient inside heat exchanger
Measuring of velocity profiles of flowing air
Calibration of flowmeeters for measuring of liquid floe rate
Measuring of pressure drop of flowing liquid inside the pipe
Measuring of centrifugal pump and pipe characteristics
