Modules start 7 June 2019

Overview

The course offers a unified approach to the broad subject of process equipment scale-up. It starts with an introduction to dimensional analysis. This leads to describing complex phenomena using dimensionless groups. The principle of similarity is the basis used for creating identical processes at different length scales. The adopted approach is practical, drawing on several examples and exercises from a wide range of process engineering. The course will benefit anyone who is interested in learning more about the principles of successful scale-up and will be relevant to the R&D community working at the lab- and pilot scale. It will also be of potential benefit to design engineers, and to operating engineers who are considering plant modifications.

By the end of this course, you will be able to apply dimensional analysis to physical and chemical processes, be able to describe a physical process with a complete set of dimensionless group, be able to use the principle of similarity to reproduce identical processes at different length-scales and know how to cope with variable physical properties in scale-up.

Trainer

Jamie Cleaver

PhD, CEng, FIChemE, consultant

Jamie's background as a lecturer and his extensive experience of chemical engineering employers and the workplace give him a unique perspective as a trainer and facilitator of soft skills for chemical engineers.

He has a strong technical background, with a first degree in chemical engineering from the University of Surrey and a PhD from the University of Cambridge. After his PhD he followed a natural path into academic research and spent 16 years lecturing chemical engineering at the University of Surrey.

Through coordinating the professional training placement scheme for chemical engineering students, he was able to see first-hand the huge potential benefit to individuals and organisations that could be achieved by professional skills training.

"Jamie has proven skill and knowledge sets, which have impacted both myself and colleagues in my company in a positive manner. He comes highly recommended." UOP

"I found Jamie to be responsive, proactive, with the strategic understanding to align my business needs with a learning environment. Thoroughly good guy to work with." SNC-Lavalin

"Jamie is an engaging and inspirational trainer who works hard to help his delegates realise their potential." Evolve-Leadteam Ltd
