Descri pt i on

The module introduces students to the fundamentals and applications of combustion.
Students are expected to have a background in either chemical or
engineering
thermodynamics. The module covers: reaction stoichiometry, combustion
thermodynamics, reaction kinetics and dynamics, transport phenomena, liquid and
solid combustion, pollutant formation, and computational methods. Analytical and
numer
i
cal
problem
-
solving techniques are developed through homework assignments,
projects and comput
er labs.

Indicative Content

(Marketing Description and content)

The module introduces students to the fundamentals and applications of combustion.
Students are expected to have a background in either chemical or engineering
thermodynamics. The module covers: reaction stoic
hiometry, combustion
thermodynamics, reaction kinetics and dynamics, transport phenomena, liquid and
solid combustion, pollutant formation, and computational methods. Analytical and
numerical problem
-
solving techniques are developed through homework
assign
ments, projects and computer labs.

Workload:

ECTS credits represent the student workload for the programme of study, i.e. the total time
the student spends engaged in learning activities. This includes formal teaching, homework,
self
-
directed study and assessment.


Modules are assigned credits that are whole number multiples of 5.

One credit is equivalent to 20
-
25 hours of work. An undergra
duate year’s work of 60 credits is
equivalent to 1200 to 1500 hours or 40 to 50 hours of work per week for two 15 week
semesters (12 weeks of teaching, 3 weeks study and formal examinations).
