From most recent to earliest

  • 28 Feb: midterm grades are posted in Avenue; they will be returned at class.
  • 26 Feb: grades for the assignments (1 and 2) have been uploaded to Avenue. Grades for assignment 3 will be available after assignment 3B is graded. Grades for the midterm will be available on Thursday. Please bring any discrepancy to my attention right away.
  • 25 Feb: please review the example covered in class on 25 February. Ensure that you understand how the problem was derived and then coded into your choice of Polymath, Python or MATLAB. Run the code for your choice and duplicate the plots shown.
  • 22 Feb: Tutorial 5 is posted. Please have a copy of MATLAB, Python and/or Polymath installed on your laptops. If you can't get it working, bring your computer to Monday's tutorial and I will help getting it working.
    • The tutorial is due as assignment 3B on 28 February.
    • Some demo source code to help you in the tutorial is now available.
  • 22 Feb: Solutions to the midterm are posted. At the very least, please read the comments on the first 2 pages; we also went through the solutions in the class on 14 February.
  • 14 Feb: please bring your laptops to the tutorial on Monday/Tuesday (25 and 26 Feb). We will learning to use Python, MATLAB and/or Polymath.
  • 13 Feb: a copy of the midterm has been posted. Please bring it to class on Thursday ... we will be reviewing it.
  • 11 Feb: Solutions to assignment 3 are now posted to help you prepare for the midterm.
  • The tutorials on Monday on Tuesday are a chance for you to review any questions from your studies for the midterm. Come with questions and concepts you don't understand. I cannot make it to the Tuesday tutorial (but Vida is there). Plenty of space on the Monday tutorial.
  • Important: Details about the midterm are posted.
  • Tutorial 4 has been posted; it is due as assignment 3A on 11 February.
    • Only questions 1, 2 and 3 are due for hand-in. Question 4 should be attempted on your own though.
    • No late hand-ins on this one, because solutions will be posted right away so you can study for the midterm on 13 February.
    • Note that in question 1, the correct value for \(K_C= 100\,\text{mol.m}^{-3}\).
  • Complete solutions have been posted for assignment 2.
  • For the class on Thursday, 31 January
  • 28 Jan: Assignment 2 is posted and is due in class on 30 January.
  • 27 Jan: Tutorial 3 is available now.
  • 24 Jan: The slides on undergraduate projects with the MACC
  • If you want to receive these announcements on your cell, but don't have a Twitter account, text: follow 3k4reactors to this number 21212 and you'll get a text message instead of a tweet.
  • Assignments are due in class on Monday night, 21 Jan, or submit it electronically (do not submit in the Chem Eng dropbox).
    • To submit electronically, you should start and complete your assignment in Google Docs. Then share the assignment with the 2 gmail addresses given in the link above.
  • There's been a request that the course slides be made available for the entire week. This is unfortunately not possible as the slides are being prepared as the course proceeds, being finished just before class. An unfortunate side-effect of teaching a course for the first time and updating the material.
  • The course videos and audio are available regarding the course overview. In the future I won't announce these. Click on the link in the Administrative section above.
  • The first assignment/tutorial is posted. See you on Monday/Tuesday in the tutorial slot.
  • Slides for the overview class are available.
  • The course outline is now available.
  • The first class is Monday, 07 January in T13, room 127 at 17:30.
  • Welcome to the website for 3K4, Introduction to Reactor Design.
