I would like to draw your attention to the Short Course on Applied Combustion Technology, which is being offered in Utah from May 23rd through May 25th.

This same course was offered last year and was sold out.  Those that attended gave very favorable evaluations and the course was considered a great success.

“Applied Combustion Technology:
Problem Solving for the Utility and Process Industries”

May 23rd through May 25th , 2005

Brigham Young University, Provo, UT

A Short Course Offered by:

Brigham Young University – Reaction Engineering International – University of Utah

This course addresses applied combustion technology. A team of international experts provides insights into most applied combustion technology topics, with an emphasis on stationary systems and low-grade, ash-forming fuels (coal, biomass, black liquor, etc.). Discussions center around how fuel properties, operating conditions, and furnace design impact environmental and operational performance such as NOx emissions and fouling and slagging. In addition to presentations, participants can elect to attend laboratory demonstrations of many of the principles and sessions discussing software-based approaches to problem solving. A Workshop session provides opportunities for problem discussions and solutions with course instructors and other participants in particular areas of interest. A copy of presentation notes and accompanying documents provided to each participant supplements the discussions. Participants should gain an improved understanding of combustion and pollutant formation processes and specific ideas of how they can improve operations evaluate pollutant control technologies.

The short course targets people responsible for the specification, design, and operation of utility boilers, industrial furnaces, refinery process heaters, incinerators, cement kilns, black liquor recovery boilers, gasifiers, and related pollution control or similar equipment.
An undergraduate engineering degree or its equivalent is recommended. Advanced skills in computing and/or modeling, beyond those covered in a typical undergraduate engineering curriculum, are not required. Personal assistance to individual participants, will be provided by instructors and demonstrators, as needed.

A block of rooms at substantial discount have been reserved at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, Provo, UT (801) 377-4700. Registration forms and further information are available through the web at http://www-acerc.byu.edu/News/ShortCourse.

The course objectives etc are listed below, and the entire program is shown on the PDF attachment.  Please forward this announcement to others in your organization and please register your attendees as soon as possible.

Editors Note: This course falls within the Technical Objectives of the IFRF – consequently a new Classification has been added to the IFRF Calendar of Technical Events – Education and Training – from which the reader can download the present documentation and updates in the future.
