On a daily basis we talk to companies in the likes of Tata Elxsi and Mahindra to fine tune our curriculum.

Week 01 - Fundamental of Chemistry

  • In this module, you will learn about different fuel types, species nomenclature, and concepts such as:
    • Molecular weight
    • Moles
    • Density
    • Mass Fraction, Mole Fraction, and PPM
    • Vapour pressure
    • Equation of State
    • The air-to-fuel ratio
    • Equivalence ratio
  • This module covers the various properties of thermodynamics as well as combustion, which is very useful in modeling combustion. The relationship between various properties helps you make the right decision, and the results are compared with the numerical data of those properties. The module also covers the units of the above entities and their significance. 

Week 02 - Intermediary Thermodynamics

  • This module provides the opportunity to refresh your basics in thermodynamics and learn several intermediary concepts such as:
    • Enthalpy of reaction
    • Adiabatic flame temperature
    • Lower and higher heating values
  • This module will cover concepts that are helpful in understanding the derived properties of chemical kinetics and will help understand the rate of reactions and their impact on reactor systems. 
  • The above parameters can be a good starting point for optimizing the reactor system. The theoretical calculation of the above parameters will help you understand the practicality of the system we are designing.

Week 03 - Equilibrium Chemistry

  • Equilibrium chemistry models are very commonly used to construct simplified combustion models. In this module, you will learn the following:
    • Full Equilibrium
    • Water Gas Equilibrium
    • Pressure effects
    • Understanding NASA's thermodynamic data files
  • This module will teach the difference between homogeneous and heterogeneous equilibrium. Understanding equilibrium will allow you to understand if a chemical reaction is at equilibrium and in which direction the chemical reaction must proceed to attain equilibrium. 
  • It helps you to understand the new equilibrium attained when a change in concentration of either a reactant or a product is made to a system initially at equilibrium. Besides, this module will also teach you to read NASA or any other standard data that helps design the reactor system. 

Week 04 - Elementary Reactions

  • This module will introduce you to chemical kinetics and you will learn the following topics:
    • Global and elementary reactions
    • Rate of a reaction
    • Forward rate and backward rate
    • CHEMKIN formatted mechanism file
  • In this module, we define the reaction rate and a few associated terms and introduce the simplest type of chemical reaction, which is a single-step reaction known as an elementary reaction. We will investigate the various factors that determine the rate of an elementary reaction, which allows you to calculate rate constants and explain their temperature dependence.

Week 05 - Introduction to Python and Cantera

  • In this module, you will study Python, an extremely popular programming language.
  • You will learn Python by writing programs related to chemical kinetics.
  • Once you can write simple programs in Python, we will introduce you to Cantera.
  • With Cantera, you will be able to simulate different types of combustion systems.
  • Cantera is an extremely popular tool that is used in several universities and organizations for research and industrial purposes.

Week 06 - Ignition Delay Calculation

  • Ignition delay is the time lag between the start of injection and the start of combustion when the air-fuel mixture is ignited. It is one of the major factors that help in determining the performance of an IC engine. In this module, we will teach you to build several zero-dimensional reactors. These types of simulations will be used to predict the ignition delay and flame speeds of popular fuels.
    The objective of the module is to study the dependence of ignition delay time on
    • Cylinder ambient gas temperature 
    • Cylinder ambient gas pressure
    • Injection pressure 
    • Injector nozzle orifice diameter

Week 07 - Flame Speed Calculation

  • While designing combustion systems, flame speed plays an important role in determining their performance.
  • In this module, you will learn how to calculate flame speeds.
  • Note that this parameter depends upon the type of reaction mechanism that is being employed and the thermodynamic conditions in the combustion chamber.
  • You will also perform a sensitivity analysis that helps you determine which of the elementary reactions is going to affect the flame speed the most. 

Week 08 - Advanced Topics in Combustion

  • In this module you will learn the following topics:
    • Perfectly stirred reactor
    • Steady-state combustion and its relevance for gas turbine applications
    • Extinction and blow off limits
    • Premixed, diffusion, and partially premixed flames

Week 09 - Introduction to 3D Combustion

  • In this module, you will be trained in the core concepts that are used while simulating combustion in complex 3D geometry.
  • Here you will learn about the current trends along with the cutting-edge tools that are used in the industry.
