Combustion chemistry

Individual course

If you are taking this course as part of a FITech minor, please note that all minors will be offered for the last time in the academic year 2021-2022. Please check the individual courses for updates regarding future availability.

The challenges of combustion processes are today more and more related to chemistry.

This course:

  • Introduces industrial scale combustion systems and the chemistry associated with the formation of main emission components.
  • Introduces fundamental theoretical tools, including the use of expert software, for studying chemistry in combustion processes.
  • Provides theoretical basis for working in academia or industry with chemical issues of combustion processes.

After completing this course, the students are expected to be able to:

  • Define terms and concepts relevant to industrial combustion.
  • Describe the basic principles of industrial combustion systems and the chemistry within them, including the formation of main emission components.
  • Apply fundamental chemical theories for interpreting emissions from combustion processes.
  • Analyse combustion-related problems using expert software by following given instructions.

Intensive studies organised in Turku.
