Turbulent Combustion: Theory And Modelling

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur and NPTEL via Swayam

This course may be unavailable.


Combustion is still the world's dominant energy conversion technology. The fundamental knowledge of combustion is expected to improve the design of the industrial combustion systems by enhancing the flame stability, improving the combustion efficiency, and reduction in pollutant formation. In this course, an integrated understanding of theoretical, and numerical aspects of combustion especially in the field of unsteady turbulent combustion would be covered. The discussion would continue on basic techniques and recent progress in the fields of turbulent combustion while establishing important connections with the underlying combustion basics.INTENDED AUDIENCE: Aerospace, Automobile, Chemical and Power Generation and Defense Industries.PREREQUISITES: Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Basic Combustion, Basic turbulence
