Annotation -
The aim of the subject is to acquaint students with advanced methods of material and energy balance of the combustion of all types of fuel. The subject also deals with chemical equilibrium and chemical kinetics of combustion reactions and reactions leading to the formation of environmental pollutants. The course also deals with modern low-emission technologies of energy use of fuels.
