Learning outcomes
The course aims at giving students the advanced knowledge about the design of pipelines for transport of solid/liquid/gaseous fuels from the location of extraction to the one of use with particular focus on their operation and maintenance. The course also provides design and optimization tools to analyze process and service plants in the industrial sector with particular focus on environmental issues and prevention tools. The course completes the previous engineering education and provides the students with the awareness of the multidisciplinary context of the mechanical engineering
In order to apply the acquired knowledge, students should be able to critically analyze the design problems and to suggest solution to complex problems in the field of industrial plants. The main skills acquired in the course are: 1. Ability to face complex projects in the field of industrial plants; 2. Ability of planning and manage the fulfillment of a project; 3. Ability to monitor the environmental aspects related to the operation of a manufacturing plant
The deepen knowledge of industrial plants will improve the judgement autonomy of students and their communications skills with particular regard to the use of a proper, high level, engineering terminology. The study of industrial plants under a technical and economic point of view provide the students with the awareness of the multidisciplinary context of the mechanical engineering so that they will be able to communicate and cooperate in different context both with engineers and non-engineers

Basic concepts for multiphase pipeline calculations. Energy equation for two-phase flow gas-liquid mixtures. Predication of flow patterns.. Liquid holdup effect. Pressure drop calculation for two phase pipelines. Approach to pipeline design calculations. Refrigeration plants. Refrigeration processes and refrigeration systems. Approach to design calculation. Concentration of liquid foods. Single and multiple stages evaporator systems. Thermo-compression systems. Natural and forced circulation concentrators.. Drying of solids: principles, classification and selection of dryers. Industrial gas cleaning. Centrifugal separators. Filtration by fibrous filters. Electrostatic precipitation. Industrial furnaces. Approach to design calculation.

Development of the examination
The evaluation of the students learning is assessed through a written test and an oral examination. In the written examination, students must realize the concept design of two complex systems with assigned data input, a process plant and service facility. The criteria and models developed during the course of Industrial thermomechanical plants will be used to solve the problems. In the oral examination, after a critical analysis of the written test, questions about innovative design methods and the design criteria will be asked. All topics covered during the course will be evaluated.

During the exams the students have to demonstrate the knowledge of specific criteria and corresponding analytical methods governing the choice, design and implementation of defined process equipment and service facilities. It must also be able to critically analyze and propose measures and innovative and cost-effective solutions.

During the exams, the critical capacity, the autonomy and the student capability to critically analyze and propose innovative solutions to solve complex problems will be evaluated. It will also be assessed the ability to articulate and implement, with appropriate terminology, original ideas in technical and other contexts.

The minimum vote of eighteen thirty, is awarded to students who demonstrate sufficient capacity to solve problems of a certain complexity and sufficient knowledge of methods and criteria explained during the course. The vote of thirty thirtieths is assigned to students who, in both examinations, have demonstrated full independence, mastery, high critical sense in solving the proposed problems. Praise is reserved for those who also showed particular of language ability and synthesis capability.
