Kinetic modelling includes fundamental aspects such as stoichiometry, kinetics and thermodynamics in the analysis of chemical reactor behaviour. Microkinetic models help to consolidate the fundamental information about a catalytic reaction.
During this course with a focus of chemical reaction and reactor engineering, ex-cathedra sessions are alternated with interactive tutorials during which user-friendly software tools are used, e.g., KASTER and Athena Visual Studio.
