This book provides a rigorous treatment of the coupling of chemical reactions and fluid flow. Combustion-specific topics of chemistry and fluid mechanics are considered and tools described for the simulation of combustion processes. This edition is completely restructured. Mathematical Formulae and derivations as well as the space-consuming reaction mechanisms have been replaced from the text to appendix. A new chapter discusses the impact of combustion processes on the atmosphere, the chapter on auto-ignition is extended to combustion in Otto- and Diesel-engines, and the chapters on heterogeneous combustion and on soot formation are heavily revised.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"This book, now in its fourth edition, is intended as a text for beginning graduate students who are interested in some of the basic elements of combustion processes. …Throughout the book, the level of mathematics is fairly elementary. Thus, the subject can be followed by the targeted audience. … The authors have done an excellent job of organization. … In summary, I enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it. I may consider adopting it as a required text when I teach combustion again." (Peyman Givi, AIAA Journal, Vol. 45 (10), 2007)
