Aero-thermo-chemical balance equations
Simplified calculation of a laminar diffusion flame
Turbulent transport
Propagation of a flame, inflammation temperature, flammability limit, deflagration
speed, flame stability.
• Application to furnaces

Abilities :


Description and operational vocabulary


the products of a combustion reaction, the effects of a reaction kinetics, the different types of flame, the transport phenomena involved in a combustion 


the propagation and the shape of a flame, the methods of NOx reduction, the adjustment of a flame
