The theory of combustion based on thermodynamics and fluid dynamics is presented using a text book written in English. Calculations of both heat and adiabatic flame temperature using JANNAF database will be demonstrated. The goal of this course is to get the quantitative understanding of the combustion phenomenon.
Combustion plays an important role in various engines such as jet engines, gas turbine, rocket engines and so on. The physical chemistry of the combustion phenomenon will be demonstrated systematically and be able to applied in practical case. Furthermore recent topics on combustion research will be discussed.
