  • The aim of the course is to provide a fundamental understanding for the physical processes in combustion. Important areas are thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, radiation, transport processes. From this basic understanding combustion phenomena and systems can be analysed such as autoignition, flame propagation, extinction, and pollutant formation. Improved understanding of combustion processes is highly important to improve efficiency and decrease harmful emissions, which is of global importance since 90% of the energy usage in the world can be related to combustion processes.
  • Introduction, thermochemistry, chemical equilibrium, adiabatic flame temperature, chemical kinetics, ignition processes, combustion physics, premixed and diffusion flames, turbulent combustion, pollutant formation, combustion diagnostics, and practical combustion systems.
    Compulsory tasks: Written exercise, Laboratory exercise in Combustion, and Project. Subject for project is chosen after discussion with teacher. Project must be presented orally and in a written report.
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to explain how thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, radiation, and transport processes lead to different characteristics for combustion processes.
    be able to describe the physical processes taking place for different combustion phenomena and in practical combustion systems.
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to analyse a combustion process with regard to efficiency and pollutants
    be able to calculate parameters such as temperature and species concentrations from thermochemical data of a combustion system.
    be able to write reports from laboratory exercises with analysis of measurement data and discussion about uncertainties
    be able to write a project report on a topic in the combustion area and present it orally.
    be able to assimilate the important information in scientific papers of more bascis character and in an advanced English text book.
    be able to solve problems with help from other sources than the course material, for example previous courses within the laser/optics area.
Judgement and Approach
