CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Combustion Engineering, a topic generally taught at the upper undergraduate
and graduate level in most mechanical engineering programs, and many chemical
engineering programs, is the study of rapid energy and mass transfer usually
through the common physical phenomena of flame oxidation. It covers the physics
and chemistry of this process and the engineering applications-from the
generation of power such as the internal combustion automobile engine to the
gas turbine engine. Renewed concerns about energy efficiency and fuel costs,
along with continued concerns over toxic and particulate emissions have kept
the interest in this vital area of engineering high and brought about new
developments in both fundamental knowledge of flame and combustion physics as
well as new technologies for flame and fuel control.
*New chapter on new combustion concepts and technologies, including discussion
on nanotechnology as related to combustion, as well as microgravity combustion,
microcombustion, and catalytic combustion-all interrelated and discussed by
considering scaling issues (e.g., length and time scales).
*New information on sensitivity analysis of reaction mechanisms and generation
and application of reduced mechanisms
*Expanded coverage of turbulent reactive flows to better illustrate real-world
*Important new sections on stabilization of diffusion flames. For the first
time, the concept of triple flames will be introduced and discussed in the
context of diffusion flame stabilization
