Course Introduction
Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering 4624

Chemical Process Dynamics and Control

Course Objectives
This course will introduce you to the behavior and control of dynamic chemical process systems. At the end
of the course you should have an intuitive feel for how dynamic systems behave with and without automatic
controllers, the characteristics of a good controller, and methods for designing control systems. The course
will use mathematical principles and tools such as differential equations and Laplace transforms to help in
understanding the dynamics and control of process systems. The rst part of the course will focus on
process dynamics, the second on basic principles of process control, and the last on some advanced theory
and practice of automatic process control.
Course Policies
Course material
All students are encouraged to read the relevant material before it is taught in class. The course
schedule (https://osu.instructure.com/courses/8525/assignments/syllabus) provides details about when
specic sections will be covered.
Homework policies
There will be weekly homework assignments. These will usually be due at the beginning of class on
Tuesdays. If you are late, please come to the front to submit your homework. Submissions at or
after the end of class may not be accepted.
Homework solutions will be posted on Carmen three days after the due date.
The policy for late HW submissions is as follows. Submissions before the solution is posted will get
75% credit. Note that the solution will posted three days after the homework is due.
Three mini-quizzes will be given to evaluate your understanding of concepts covered in a recent
homework. The best two will be included in your grade. These will be very short, 5 or 10 minute tests. If
you do your homework and understand what you are doing you should not have to study for a miniquiz. Make-up mini quizzes will not be provided.
Electronic devices - Use of electronic devices in class for anything other than the material being covered
in class can be highly distracting not only to the user but to his/her neighbors as well. The following
policy is meant to strongly discourage such disruption.
The use of electronic devices for anything other than the material being covered in the lecture is
strictly prohibited.

Academic Misconduct
Academic integrity is absolutely essential to maintaining an environment that fosters excellence in teaching,
research, and other educational and scholarly activities. The Ohio State University presumes that all
students have read and understand the University's Code of Student Conduct and that all students will
complete all academic and scholarly assignments with fairness and honesty. Ignorance of this code is never
considered an excuse for academic misconduct. A faculty member who believes a student has committed
academic misconduct is obligated by University Rules to report the student to the Committee on Academic
Misconduct (COAM) Any students observing misconduct should report such to the course instructor. If
COAM nds that the student has violated the code, then sanctions in the most serious cases could include a
failing grade and suspension or dismissal from the University. The Code of Student Conduct denes
Academic Misconduct to include: violation of course rules; providing or receiving information during 2/3



Academic Misconduct to include: violation of course rules; providing or receiving information during
quizzes or exams; submitting plagiarized work; and falsication, fabrication, or dishonesty in reporting
research results. If you have access to homework solutions prepared by students who took this course
in previous years, my suggestion is to throw them away - if you rely on these to prepare your own
solution, that is plagiarism. The same obviously is true for students who somehow manage to obtain a
copy of the solutions manual for a textbook.
Collaboration on homework assignments is encouraged in this class - discussing problems with classmates
can be a great way to learn. However, unless instructed otherwise, each student must submit their own
individual solution. If you have any questions please contact the instructor for clarication.
For additional information, see the Code of Student Conduct:
http://studentaffairs.osu.edu/resource_csc.asp (http://studentaffairs.osu.edu/resource_csc.asp) and the
COAM (http://oaa.osu.edu/coam/home.html) home page.
Disability Services
Students with disabilities that have been certied by the Oce for Disability Services (ODS) will be
appropriately accommodated. For example, with proper certication a student may be given additional time
for exams.
Important: it is the responsibility of the student inform the instructor as soon as possible of their needs. Do
not assume that the instructor already knows about your situation. All such information of this type is of
course condential and never revealed to other faculty or students.
The ODS offers a wide variety of services to students with documented permanent or temporary disabilities.
All types of disability are covered, including physical (mobility, dexterity, endurance, etc.), perceptual,
cognitive (attention, distractibility, communication, etc), and behavioral.
The Oce for Disability Services is located in 150 Pomerene Hall, 1760 Neil Avenue; telephone 292-3307,
TDD 292-0901. See their website for detailed information: http://www.ods.ohio-state.edu/
