Course Aims
The aim of this course is to teach how to model biological process utilized in composting and biogas technology and to gain ability to apply software model program into real systems.
Course Goals
The target this course is to gain research and development and problem solving ability to students in compost and biogas plants using modeling and simulation techniques
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
1) Understanding basic definitions about the composting and biogas systems,
2) To write energy, mass, momentum equations defining composting and biogas process,
3) Modeling composting process for reactors and windrow systems and apply to real systems,
4) Modeling biogas process for reactors and apply to real systems,
5) To identify the problems encountered in the real systems using models
Course Contents
This module is concerned with how to write kinetic, energy, mass, momentum equations necessary for modeling and simulation of composting and biogas process and how to transform these equations into software media.

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
