Food Process Design
752-3022-00LFood Factory Planning and DesignW3 credits2GP.  Beck, S. Padar
AbstractThe focus is directed on the interaction (and interdependency) of the different crafts involved, mainly construction, building services, and installation engineering. Hygienic requirements have to be designed and finally are implemented in order to achieve international standards (GMP, IFS, BRC). Insight is given into contract and payment handling.
ObjectiveStudents learn about the tasks and responsibilities of the specialists (engineers, planners), organizations and distributors involved. Knowledge is provided on the coordination and guidance of people involved. An insight into hygienic and technical specifications as well as the regulatory framework is given. Finally, the implementation of a functional, ecological and cost efficient solution is discussed.
Lecture notesVorlesungsunterlagen (besprochene Folien, ca. 190 Seiten) können von der Lehrdokumentenablage MyStudies heruntergeladen werden.
752-3024-00LHygienic DesignW2 credits2GJ. Hofmann
AbstractThe lecture course Hygienic Design covers the special requirements in the design of equipment and components used in food production. Material science and surface treatments are as important as the cleaning mechanisms of these surfaces. Explanations of basic design requirements in food production areas, as well as the relevant regulations associated, are covered in this course.
ObjectiveTo identify and evaluate hazards of food safety which can come from the equipment used in the food processing. Understanding of the most important design principles for easy cleaning of machinery and equipment.
752-3104-00LFood Rheology IIW3 credits2GP. A. Fischer
AbstractFood Rheology II addresses special chapters in rheology such as suspension and emulsion rheology, constitutive equations, extensional rheology, optical methods in rheology, and interfacial rheology.
ObjectiveThe rheology of complex materials such as solutions, emulsions, and suspension will be discussed. In addition, several advanced rheological techniques (extension, rheo-optics, interfacial rheology) will be introduced and discussed in light of material characterization of complex fluids.
ContentLectures will be given on structure and rheology of complex fluids (8h), constitutive equations (2h), optical methods in rheology (4h), extensional rheology (4h), and interfacial rheology (6h).
Lecture notesNotes will be handed out during the lectures.
LiteratureProvided in the lecture notes.
Prerequisites / NoticeAttending Food Rheology I is beneficial but not mandatory. A short repetition of the basic principles of rheology will be given in the beginning of Food Rheology II.
389-5000-00LComputational Fluid Dynamics for Non-Newtonian Flows Restricted registration - show details
Does not take place this semester.
W3 credits2GE. J. Windhab
AbstractSolving inelastic non-Newtonian flow problems using finite volume techniques. Topics include an introduction to fluid dynamics, a discussion of non-Newtonian viscosity models, and a discussion of numerical issues, such as accuracy, convergence, and stability. Topics also include two-phase flow problems with moving interfaces, turbulence modeling, and spray modeling.
ObjectiveIntroduction to the foundations of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for non-Newtonian fluid systems. The course provides participants with theoretical background in CFD methods, discusses applications in various fields, and provides hands-on experience using CFD software via practical computer exercises.
Content1. Tensor review and Fluid dynamics review
2. Rheology and constitutive equations for non-Newtonian systems
3. Boundary conditions including moving boundaries
4. Basic concepts of Finite Volume Method
5. Finite Volume Methods applied to flow problems
6. Introduction to the OpenFOAM CFD software package
7. Numerical issues such as convergence, stability and accuracy
8. Applications, e.g. multi-phase flows, turbulence and sprays
Lecture notesLecture notes will be distributed electronically
Prerequisites / NoticeThe course includes computer exercises using the open source software OpenFOAM. Participants are expected to have sufficient computer skills and access to a laptop for the in-class computer exercises.
