Detailed coverage of advanced combustion topics from the authorof Principles of Combustion, Second Edition

Turbulence, turbulent combustion, and multiphase reacting flowshave become major research topics in recent decades due to theirapplication across diverse fields, including energy, environment,propulsion, transportation, industrial safety, and nanotechnology.Most of the knowledge accumulated from this research has never beenpublished in book form—until now. Fundamentals of Turbulentand Multiphase Combustion presents up-to-date, integrated coverageof the fundamentals of turbulence, combustion, and multiphasephenomena along with useful experimental techniques, includingnon-intrusive, laser-based measurement techniques, providing a firmbackground in both contemporary and classical approaches. Beginningwith two full chapters on laminar premixed and non-premixed flames,this book takes a multiphase approach, beginning with more commontopics and moving on to higher-level applications.

In addition, Fundamentals of Turbulent and MultiphaseCombustion:

  • Addresses seven basic topical areas in combustion and multiphaseflows, including laminar premixed and non-premixed flames, theoryof turbulence, turbulent premixed and non-premixed flames, andmultiphase flows

  • Covers spray atomization and combustion, solid-propellantcombustion, homogeneous propellants, nitramines, reactingboundary-layer flows, single energetic particle combustion, andgranular bed combustion

  • Provides experimental setups and results wheneverappropriate

Supported with a large number of examples and problems as wellas a solutions manual, Fundamentals of Turbulent and MultiphaseCombustion is an important resource for professional engineers andresearchers as well as graduate students in mechanical, chemical,and aerospace engineering.
