1999 Catalog Data:

A study of the application of burners, fuels, and control
equipment to industrial kilns and furnaces. Emphasis will be
given to current industrial equipment and

practices. Topics
include fuel chemistry, combustion analysis, ratio control
systems, flow and pressure measurement and control, burners,
flames, and heat transfer.


Prerequisites:

CH 102




Corequisites:

CME 318


Textbooks:

North American Combustion Ha
ndbook, 3rd Edition, Vol. I & II,
North American Mfg. Co, 1988.


Coordinator:



Dennis R. Dinger, Professor of Ceramic & Materials Engineering


Course Objectives:

To develop the abilities of the students to design and control
industrial combustion systems
, including the sizing and selection
