After this lecture, the students are able
- to explain the ongoing processec during ignition (self - and ignition).
- to describe the basic processes involved in the combustion of liquid and solid fuels.
- to clarify the mechanisms that lead to the formation of pollutants.
- to describe turbulent reactive flows using simple models.
- to explain the origin of the engine knocking.
- to sketch basic numerical methods for simulation of reactive flows.
