Module Detail
Title Combustion Science and Engineering
(maximum 50 characters)
Description
The module introduces students to the fundamentals and applications of combustion.
Students are expected to have a background in either chemical or engineering
thermodynamics. The module covers: reaction stoichiometry, combustion
thermodynamics, reaction kinetics and dynamics, transport phenomena, liquid and
solid combustion, pollutant formation, and computational methods. Analytical and
numerical problem-solving techniques are developed through homework assignments,
projects and computer labs.

PART B
Workload:
ECTS credits represent the student workload for the programme of study, i.e. the total time
the student spends engaged in learning activities. This includes formal teaching, homework,
self-directed study and assessment.
Modules are assigned credits that are whole number multiples of 5.
One credit is equivalent to 20-25 hours of work. An undergraduate year’s work of 60 credits is
equivalent to 1200 to 1500 hours or 40 to 50 hours of work per week for two 15 week
semesters (12 weeks of teaching, 3 weeks study and formal examinations).

Module Learning Outcomes
(CAN BE EXPANDED)
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to:
1 Perform calculations of combustion stoichiometry
2 Use the 1st law of thermodynamics to calculate fuel heating value
3 Use the 2nd law of thermodynamics to calculate equilibrium compositions and
flame temperatures for combustion
4 Calculate the chemical kinetic rates of combustion reactions
5 Use detailed chemical mechanisms to predict combustion characteristics of fuels
under realistic conditions
6 Solve mixed diffusion-kinetic controlled combustion problems
7 Understand the interaction between fluid dynamics and chemical reactions
8 Solve combustion problems for liquid and solid fuels
9 Evaluate efficiency and environmental performance of energy conversion
technologies
