CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Fire and combustion presents a significant engineering challenge to
mechanical, civil and dedicated fire engineers, as well as specialists in the
process and chemical, safety, buildings and structural fields. We are reminded
of the tragic outcomes of 'untenable' fire disasters such as at King's Cross
underground station or Switzerland's St Gotthard tunnel. In these and many
other cases, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is at the forefront of active
research into unravelling the probable causes of fires and helping to design
structures and systems to ensure that they are less likely in the future.
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is routinely used as an analysis tool in
fire and combustion engineering as it possesses the ability to handle the
complex geometries and characteristics of combustion and fire. This book shows
engineering students and professionals how to understand and use this powerful
tool in the study of combustion processes, and in the engineering of safer or
more fire resistant (or conversely, more fire-efficient) structures.
No other book is dedicated to computer-based fire dynamics tools and systems.
It is supported by a rigorous pedagogy, including worked examples to illustrate
the capabilities of different models, an introduction to the essential aspects
of fire physics, examination and self-test exercises, fully worked solutions
and a suite of accompanying software for use in industry standard modeling
· Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is widely used in engineering analysis;
this is the only book dedicated to CFD modeling analysis in fire and combustion
· Strong pedagogic features mean this book can be used as a text for graduate
level mechanical, civil, structural and fire engineering courses, while its
coverage of the latest techniques and industry standard software make it an
important reference for researchers and professional engineers in the
mechanical and structural sectors, and by fire engineers, safety consultants
· Strong author team (CUHK is a recognized centre of excellence in fire eng)
deliver an expert package for students and professionals, showing both theory
and applications. Accompanied by CFD modeling code and ready to use simulations
to run in industry-standard ANSYS-CFX and Fluent software.
