CAIRO BOOKS's Description
As an increasing number of professionals and graduate students enter the field
of solid-based power generation, they all require an command of process and
equipment, as well as the theory behind it all. However, their informational
needs and understanding differ based on their experience and the task at hand.
Solid Fuels Combustion and Gasification: Modeling, Simulation, and Equipment
Operations, Second Edition explores evolving solid fuel combustion and
gasification techniques that are leading to much lower sulfur and nitrogen
oxide emissions. It also shows how to increase the efficiency of processes
dealing with materials such as coal, biomass, solid residues, etc. Many of the
successes of these methods are the result of process optimization resulting
from mathematical modeling and simulation. This book introduces and explores
these techniques, taking a moderate approach that is neither too narrow nor too
basic, making it useful to graduate students, engineers, and professionals.
It illustrates the modeling and constructive and operational aspects of
equipment used in combustion and gasification of solid fuels. It was written
based on the idea that developing models and computer simulators is the optimal
method to acquire real and testable understanding of a subject in the area of
Model complexity is extended only as far as needed to achieve a reasonable
representation of the equipment described in the book, and the author provides
specific and carefully selected case studies that:
Cover many industrial processes involving combustion or gasification of solid
fuels Provide easy-to-follow examples on how to set simplifying assumptions
regarding the operation of real industrial equipment Enable relatively quick
introduction of fundamental equations without the need for unnecessarily
The main strategy of the book is to teach by example, and the basic methods
illustrated here can be used for modeling a wide range of processes and
equipment commonly found in industry. It is a carefully constructed volume
which presents essential concepts that minimize the need for other texts, and
it can also be used as an introduction to more complex models.
