Book Description

Although there is a large body of research literature pertaining to the environmental implications of combustion processes, this book is the first to present a concise treatment of fundamental issues that can be quickly and easily used by entry-level researchers. The book is arranged so that it logically flows from fundamentals to pollutants, through theory, and on to modeling. Chapters cover combustion fundamentals, gaseous pollution, and heterogeneous combustion. Combustion theory in the form of Activation Energy Asymptotics is included for the lay reader, followed by a presentation of reduced mechanisms in the context of burning, a topic of environmental significance. Turbulent combustion modeling is also discussed.
