Abstract

Faculty at three universities are collaborating in a unique approach to teaching multiphase transport phenomena (MTP). This MTP curriculum development program draws on the research experiences from nine laboratories at Michigan State University, The University of Akron, and the University of Tulsa. The objective of the program is to teach undergraduate and graduate students practical use of multiphase computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The impact of multiphase flow research on solving practical engineering problems is an integral part of the learning experience. Industrial participants in the project provide specific design problems related to emerging technologies. Specific projects suggested by the industrial sponsors for the first cycle are: Performance of a large tank separator (Chevron), Optimization of design and operation of degassing tanks (Dow Chemical), Optimization and Comparison of hydrocyclone shapes (Krebs Engineers), Mixing of suspensions in a tank during the filling stage (Pharmecia), and Distribution of a two-phase refrigerant to heat exchanger tubes (The Trane Company), Design of a Slurry Bubble Column (Eastman Chemical Company). Students are taught the fundamentals of CFD at a 1-week intensive short course in the summer. In the Fall semester the student take a web based course on multiphase transport phenomena theory and applications. Also in the Fall semester the students are assigned to teams to work on design problems posed by sponsor companies and apply their skills in CFD. The results of the first cycle of this project are presented in this paper. Lessons learned and suggestions for improvement are discussed.
