Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The course is a follow-up to Thermomechanics from bachelor study. It summarizes and extends knowledge of energy parameters of fuels and balance calculations of combustion and complements them with the basics of combustion reaction kinetics. Following is the issue of the generation of pollutants in combustion, including the minimization of CO2 production. Furthermore, the students will be acquainted with the principles of the construction of combustion plants for selected types of fuels (solid, liquid, gaseous), normative methodology for determining efficiency, including the possibility of increasing it. The conclusion is devoted to modern technologies - gasification, gas turbines, fuel cells. The course includes two extensive laboratory exercises. In addition to the basic textbooks, domestic and foreign professional publications are available.

Subject syllabus:

The subject represents a continuation of the Bc second year studies, Basics for Combustion. It summarises and deepens the knowledge of fuel energy parameters, and combustion balance calculations, and completes them by basics of combustion kinetics. Issues of harmful substance formation by combustion, inclusive CO2 abatement, follow.
