The long-awaited new edition of the leading resource on combustion engineering
The definitive volume on combustion engineering for nearly two decades, Principles of Combustion has now been thoroughly revised and expanded to address major advances in the field in recent years. This Second Edition offers a thorough treatment of the essentials of chemically reacting flow systems, with broad applications in such areas as power generation, jet and rocket propulsion, household and industrial heating, fire prevention and safety, pollution control, and materials processing.
Emphasizing theoretical modeling for analytical or numerical solutions, this book covers chemical thermodynamics and kinetics, conservation equations for multicomponent reacting systems, deflagration and detonation waves, premixed laminar flames, gaseous diffusion flames and combustion of fuel droplets, and related topics. This Second Edition features:
Enhanced with more than 300 drawings, tables, and photographs—as well as extensive appendixes—this classic text offers a complete reference on combustion processes for the next generation of professionals and students in the areas of mechanical, chemical, and aerospace engineering.About the Author:
