Acquisition of the theoretical, technical, methodological and practical skills necessary for the experimental investigation of combustive processes. Acquisition of the theoretical basis of the modern measurements and diagnostic techniques applicable to the combustion field as well as of operative skills in utilizing an experimental infrastructure and the measurement techniques theoretically introduced, taking advantage of the equipment present at the Savona Campus. The course foresees also the setting-up of a simple combustor project and its characterization by means of the most proper experimental techniques.
Classroom frontal lectures introducing to the theorethical aspects related to the experimental methods
Laboratory lectures during which the students, under the theacher supervision, will have to set up and carry out the required experimental activities and, finally, collect the experimental data.
In order the students can safely and profitably attend the laboratory lectures, these will be held with small (maximum 5-6 people) groups of students.
Collected data will be post processed by the students and presented in a report.
In the case of an extention of the sanitary emergency due to COVID-19, the frontal lectures will be held telematically by means of the Microsoft Teams platform. The laboratory activity will be carried out by the theacher who will produce video tutotrials made, afterwords, available to the students taking advantage, again, of the Microsoft Teams platform. The raw experiemntal data will be, finally, provided to the stuidents in order to be postoprocessed.
Theory of Measurement and Errors – Outlines.
Introduction to the main measurement techniques (hot wire anemometry, Laser Doppler Velocimetry, Phase Doppler Anemometry, Particle Image Velocimetry; Laser Induced Fluorescence, Laser Induced Incandescence, Rayleigh thermometry).
Laboratory activities (utilization of an experimental infrastructure and of the measurement techniques theoretically introduced, development and realization of a simple combustor project and its characterization by means of the most proper experimental techniques).
Teaching materials and notes by the teacher.
Office hours: Students can contact the teacher by e-mail to arrange for day and reception hours at the teacher's office.
