OVERVIEW

The course deepens the physical aspects of different types of combustion by theoretical models and experimental data, and analyses requirements and design solutions of combustors for aeronautical applications.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides the basic knowledge on combustion theoretical modeling and diagnostic techniques, and the applied know-how relevant for engineering applications.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course the student will be able

- to understand the physical aspects of the combustion and their influence on flame size, stability and ignition;

- to know and apply simple combustion models for premixed and diffusion flames of gas, liquid droplets and solid particles;

- to discuss the requirements of the combustors for aeronautical applications and to identify appropriate design solutions;

- to understand the background physics and the implementation problems of the optical techniques for combustion diagnostics;

- to analyse experimental and numerical results in combustors

TEACHING METHODS

Theoretical and applied lectures: presentation and discussion of the theoretical contents, experimental and numerical results.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Principles of combustion, theoretical models and experimental data: detonation waves; premixed laminar and turbulent flames; ignition; flame stabilization; laminar and turbulent gaseous diffusion flames; combustion of a single liquid fuel droplet; atomization and sprays; burning of solids.
