AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Acquisition of the theoretical, technical and methodological skills necessary for the understanding and proper interpretation of most industrially and energetically relevant combustion phenomena. Acquisition of theoretical tools useful to the comprehension of the physical phenomena to which the combustion processes are subjected to, as well as on the implications connected with their industrial exploitation. Acquisition of fundmentale skills related to environmental issues, linked to the combustive processes. Basic competences on the main combustion diagnostic techniques.

TEACHING METHODS

Classroom and laboratory frontal lectures.

As a consequence of the possible extention of the sanitary emergency due to the COVID-19, it is possible that the lectures will be held telematically by means of the Microsoft Teams platform.
