4.4 Fuels and Combustions

- Hydrocarbon fuel and oxidation process.

- Some definitions in this course.
1. Air fuel ratio: The ratio of the mass of the air to the mass of the fuel for a combustion process.
2. Complete combustion: If all carbon in the fuel oxidized to CO2, all hydrogen oxidized to H2O, and all
sulphur oxidized to SO2.
3. Incomplete combustion: If the combustion products contain any unburned/oxidized fuel or components
such as C, H2, CO, or OH.
4. Stoichiometric or theoretical air: The minimum amount of air needed for the complete combustion of a
5. Stoichiometric or theoretical combustion: The ideal combustion process during which a fuel is burned
completely with theoretical air.
6. Excess air: The amount of air in excess of the stoichiometric amount.
7. Deficiency of air: The amounts of air less than the stoichiometric amount.
8. Standard reference state: 1 atmospheric pressure or 1 bar and 25 ºC.
- Some assumptions in this course.
1. Air is completely dry, unless the humidity is mentioned.
2. In 4.76 kmol of air consists ONLY of 1 kmol of oxygen and 3.76 kmol of nitrogen, unless is mentioned
3. Combustion is complete, unless is mentioned otherwise.
4. No work done in a combustion chamber, unless is mentioned otherwise.
5. All reactants and products of combustion are behaved as an ideal gas.
6. Standard reference state is referring to reference state used in by thermodynamics property tables in the
