Course Aim
After completing the course, the student shall be able to

• describe and explain the unit processes which are common within high temperature processes
• describe and apply the theoretical bases for high temperature processes
• from a theoretical and practical view give an account for the extraction of the most common metals
• describe techniques for gas cleaning in high temperature processes and hypothetically design and justify the selections of equippment
• in oral and written presentation suggest solutions to technical problems related to high temperature processes

Lectures, exercises, laboratory experiments, project tasks related to the industry and study trips to metallurgical process industries are all included in the course. Thermodynamic calculations using FactSage.

In the education lectures are combined with exercises, laboratory experiments, project tasks and study trips.
The lectures and exercises will give the students the opportunity to practically and theoretically describe high temperature processes and train the ability to make calculations related to the processes. Laboratory experiments and project tasks related to the industry are carried out as group work. As the laboratory experiments are carried out, the students will perform and evaluate tests and in a written report present the sequence of work and the results attained. Performing the project task the students will, based on computer simulations and other course contents, suggest and justify choices of process techniques for industrial high temperature processes. The project task is shown in oral and written presentation.
The study trips connect contents from lectures, laboratory exercises and project task with applications in the industry.

Approved results for laboratory exercise and project task including oral and written presentation. For laboratory exercise and project task the marks not approved or approved are given. The knowledge in high temperature processes is controlled with a written exam in which the grades U, 3, 4 or 5 are given.
Students who have failed an examination on five occasions will not be allowed further resits.

Compulsory attendance at the first lecture, laboratory exercise, study trips, project introduction and project presentations. The course is given at basic level and is included in the MSc programme in Chemical Engineering. A study guide for the course is found in Fronter.
