Combustion I + II


Lecture Part I

Part I consists of lectures (V4) which are held during the summer term. Topics of the lectures are the following:

  • Mass and Energy Balance in Combustion Systems
  • Calculation of Adiabatic Flame Temperatures and Chemical Equilibria
  • Systematic Reduction of Reaction Kinetics for Hydrogen and Methane Flames
  • Ignition in Homogeneous Systems
  • Fluid Dynamics and Basic Equations for Flames
  • Laminar Premixed Flames: Burning Velocities and One-Step-Asymptotics
  • Asymptotic Structure for the 4-Step Premixed Methane Flame: Lean Flammability Limits
  • Laminar Premixed Flames: Flame Shapes and Instabilities
  • Laminar Diffusion Flames: Flame Structure
  • Laminar Diffusion Flames: Different Flow Geometries

Lecture Part II

Part II consists of lectures (V4) which are held during the winter term. The lectures focus on turbulent combustion and modelling aspects:

  • Turbulent Combustion: Introduction and Overview
  • Laminar Flamelet Models for Non-Premixed Turbulent Combustion
  • Turbulent Diffusion Flames: Experiments and Modelling Aspects
  • Laminar Flamelet Models for Premixed Turbulent Combustion
  • Turbulent Burning Velocities: Experiments and Correlation of Data
  • Partially Premixed Combustion: Lifted Flames
