One of the major factors that help in determining the performance of a diesel engine is the chemical kinetics. In this module, we want you to do this evil bird several 0d reactors which will be used to predict the ignition delay of Poplar fuel's. You will compare the predicted values against experimental data.
While designing combustion systems the flame speed plays an important role in determining their performance. In this Module, you will learn how to calculate flame speeds. Note that this parameter depends upon the type of reaction mechanism that is being employed and the thermodynamic conditions in the combustion chamber. You will also perform a sensitivity analysis that helps you determine which of the elementary reactions are going to affect the flame speed the most.
Advanced topics in combustion
In this module, you will learn the following topics
- Perfectly stirred reactor
- Steady-state combustion and its relevance for gas turbine applications
- Extinction and blow off limits
- Premixed, diffusion and partially premixed flames
Introduction to 3D combustion
If you have made it so far, then you are in a position to understand the core concepts that are used while simulating combustion in complex 3D geometry. Here you will learn about the current trends in cutting-edge tools that industries have access to.
