Fuels, Furnaces and Refractories are the study of the sources and efficient use of energy available to modern industry. This Course introduces furnaces and refractories and explains the various design and operation aspects.
1. The thermodynamics, physics, chemistry, and kinetics of combustion of fuels.
2. The burner design.
3. The heat transfer and flow of gases through furnaces and flues.
4. Ways of controlling energy supply rates and temperatures.
5. The refractory materials, which are heat-resisting substances
