Additional Exercises

1:Perform a search on propylene glycol. What is the worldwide demand? What is the current sales price? Enumerate some of the uses of this product.
2:Consider the simple CSTR model used in Section M8.4. Transfer functions for the 100-ft3 and 5000-gallon reactor were given.
  1. Find the heat transfer area, diameter, and UA for a 1000-ft3 reactor (with an operating volume of 850 ft3), designed with the same residence time and height/diameter ratio as the other reactors. Also, find the required jacket temperature to achieve the reactor temperature of 101.1°F.

  2. Find the state space model and calculate the eigenvalues for the 1000-ft3 reactor. Find the transfer function and calculate the poles. You should find that this reactor is open-loop ...
