Level of Study
Objectives and Content
The course aims understanding of combustion as a physcial phenomena related to safety, energyproduction and enviroment
The course descreibes experimental description of combustion, thermo dynamical foundation, chemical kinetics, flame temperatures, equations and models for mass and energy transport, ignition and quenching, laminar and turbulent combustion in premixed flames and diffusion flames, droplet and dust combustion, creation of pollutants, detonations, modelling of gas explosions and simulation of explosions with the CFD simulator FLACS.
On completion of the course
the student should have the following learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence:
- Is able to explain phenomena, concepts and theories related to combustion of gases, liquids and particle
- Is able to descreieb premixed and nonpremixed combustion, with and without turbulence.
- Is able to discuss how pollutants are formed and can be restricted
- Is able to calculate the adiabatic flame temperature of a gas mixture
- Can use transport equatioms to model combustion
- Can apply fundamental mathematical models to decreibe combustion
