Grundlagen der Verbrennung


This course will provide an introductory overview to the fundamentals of combustion. Students will gain familiarity with the basic concepts responsible for sustaining and controlling a combustion front. The course will build from the governing equations describing the unique balance of transport processes in a flame and will begin to explore some of the unique features occurring in these complex phenomena.

4 SWS IV (6LP), Language: English


    • Thermodynamics of multi-component gas-phase systems.
    • Introduction to reaction kinetics, including: chemical equilibrium, reaction rates, Arrhenius reaction rates, law of mass action, steady approximations for radicals, and partial equilibrium assumptions.
    • Reaction networks and emissions formation pathways.
    • Flame theory and governing equations. Derivation of governing equations and analytic approaches to laminar burning velocity.
    • Laminar premixed and diffusion flames, with emphasis on flame structure, stabilization, and phenomena.


    The fundamental and theoretical aspects of the course will be covered in twice-weekly integrated online lectures. These lectures will present the theoretical concepts and will incorporate exercises (in groups and/or under-supervision) to demonstrate the key concepts. During the semester, students will be obligated to complete ~5 homework assignments (alone or in small groups at the student’s discretion). A written, open-book, open-note final exam will compose the last component of the evaluation.
