Combustion and radiation modelling


No of hours per week: 4  [2 + 2], one term   ECTS: 5

Lecturers: prof.dr.sc. Neven Duić - Neven.Duic@fsb.hr
  doc.dr.sc. Milan Vujanovic - milan.vujanovic@fsb.hr
  prof.dr.sc. Daniel Schneider - Daniel.Schneider@fsb.hr
Assistent: Hrvoje Mikulcic - hrvoje.mikulcic@fsb.hr

Study: graduate study of mechanical engineering
Course: Modelling in Engineering and Computational Simulations
Term: III term

Course type:
Field-related

Knowledge assessment:
continous [colloquy, programs]

Type of exercises:
Laboratory

Exam prerequisites:
Thermodynamics I, Fluid Mechanics I
  Course objective:
Introduction to processes of combustion and heat radiation, and methods for their calculations inside furnaces, boilers and combustion chambers. The objective is to provide the required foundation for students involved in research on any aspect of reacting flow, combustion and radiation, to be familiar with mathematical modelling and numerical simulations, which can then serve as guidance toward greater understanding of combustion and radiation processes that is required for producing combustion devices with ever higher efficiency and with lower pollutant emissions.
