Introduction to Combustion (ENGR 451)

Term: 2023-2024 - SPRING


Mon-Wed-Fri, 10:00 AM - 10:50 AM (1/8/2024 - 5/5/2024) Location: MAIN SORK 201A


This course covers the fundamental concepts of combustion science and engineering. Modern-day combustion science combines thermodynamics, chemistry, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer concepts, and it is used for the design of many energy and propulsive applications. Topics include: equilibrium thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, mass transfer, laminar premixed and diffusion flames, deflagration and detonation, flame stability, pollutants, and canonical 1st-Law applications.
