CHE-803 Combustion & Propulsion
Campus SCME
Programs PG
Session Fall Semester 2016
Course Title Combustion & Propulsion
Course Code CHE-803
Credit Hours 3.0
Course Objectives To provide a sound understanding of how to select an appropriate fuel for a given combustion application and how to classify and recognize the properties of solid, liquid and gaseous fuels. Knowledge of the mechanisms and properties of both flames controlled by mixing as well as reaction, and the influence of principal operating parameters on combustion efficiency, intensity, range of stability, etc will also be developed via this course.
Detail Content Introduction to Combustion, Classification of fuels. Explosions in Closed Vessels. The Chemistry of Combustion, Combustion of Hydrocarbons Flames and Combustion Waves, Detonation Waves in Gases. Special aspects of Gaseous combustion. Combustion in Mixed & Condensed Phases. Rocket propulsion. Selection of propellants: Solid, Liquid or hybrid & Rocket Motor Design
