Study of combustion science based on the background of chemistry, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Stoichiometry, energetics of chemical reactions, flame temperature, equilibrium product analyses, chemical kinetics and chain reactions.
The student, upon successful completion of this course, will be able to:
- Discuss the fundamental physical and chemical principles of various combustion phenomena independent of an application.
- Address various combustion problems by extending the earlier-gained knowledge of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat/mass transfer.
- Make quantitative and qualitative estimates of characteristics of various combustion processes.
