Combustion Analysis

Combustion Analysis

1 hr. Online Course

Level: Intermediate

Item#: RV-10837

SME: Gordan Feric

Average Rating

3 16
Today, global warming is becoming more evident and it is being said that it is primarily caused by CO2 emissions. A detailed combustion analysis can be very useful in determining different fuel and technology scenarios that would result in the reduction of current CO2 emissions. Combustion has a high degree of importance in engineering.
 
This 1-hour interactive online course covers complete and adiabatic combustion of carbon, hydrogen, sulfur, coal, oil and gas, with no heat loss, with standard air as the oxidant at stoichoimetric conditions. Six separate combustion cases are covered and basic combustion performance trends are presented
Course Objectives
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Recognize the complete and adiabatic stoichiometric combustion of carbon, hydrogen, sulfur, coal, oil and gas, with no heat loss, with standard air as the oxidant, combustion products composition on both weight and mole basis, flame temperature, stoichiometric oxidant to fuel ratio and fuel higher heating value
  • Discuss basic energy conversion engineering assumptions and equations
  • Define basic elements of the combustion process, its h- T diagram, the definition of fuel higher heating value (HHV) and flame temperature as well as combustion reactants and products physical properties – enthalpy vs temperature
  • Identify general combustion performance trends

Exciting course.
The exam could be more targeted at understanding the fundamentals rather than memorising results of combustion analysis

A few sample calculations would have been helpful-for example, how to calculate flame temperature

The course is very academic
By on May, 28, 2021
The course is very academic. I was hoping it was more real life - like testing of boiler efficiency. What is the objective of an actual combustion analysis test and what do the results tell us.
Too much detailed information to remember to take an exam

This is a fair amount of rote learning

This is a fair amount of rote learning. Not sure I really learned anything...
It would have helped a lot to have some audio explanation
By (Engineer, Professional Organization) on Nov, 08, 2021
It would have helped a lot to have some audio explanation. This was a good review of combustion, but if I weren't already familiar with the subject, I would have been lost.

no audio and exam questions were not discussed on the figures, if the exam questions were based on audio, I could no hear them

just not that great of a course

just not that great of a course. Learned something, but i wouldn't pay for this.
