A seminar is a golden opportunity for learning and self-development for any student. I consider myself very lucky and honored to have so many wonderful people lead me through in completion of this seminar.

It gives me great pleasure in expression my profound and sincere gratitude to our HOD Prof. P.D.Solanki, and my batch in charge Prof. I. H. Boraniya without whose help it would have been impossible to complete this seminar.

My grateful thanks to my guide Prof. Bharti. V. Dave, who in spite of being extraordinarily busy with her duties, took time out to hear, guide and keep us on the correct path. I do not know where I would have been without them.

“You can ever do right things you want and you can ever do it for the right reasons you want. But if you don’t have right and proper guidance, you can never hit the target.” For that i thank my professors for guiding me in the proper way and to give proper shape to my work, because,
“Every stone is a masterpiece, if it is properly shaped.”

Since two-three decades, hydrogen has been identified as a versatile potential fuel competent to the conventional fuel such as gasoline. In order to implement it fully and to develop the combustion based power devices which may supply much higher energy density than others, the understanding of hydrogen air combustion mechanism is very essential. In this seminar, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) based numerical simulations have been performed to study the combustion of non-premixed hydrogen-air mixture with different equivalence ratios and different mass flow rates and its effect on different species formation, peak temperature & NOx formation. The performance of the combustor is evaluated by using CFD package FLUENT under adiabatic wall condition. Here we used generalized finite rate chemistry model to analyze the hydrogen-air combustion system. The combustion is modeled using a global one step reaction...
