Combustion under sufficiently fuel-lean conditions can have the desirable attributes of high efficiency and low emissions. Lean Combustion: Technology and Control offers readers both the fundamentals and the latest developments in increased fuel economy and in decreased emissions, while still achieving the desired power output and performance. This volume brings together research and design of lean combustion systems across the technology spectrum in exploring the state of the art in lean combustion.

The book describes advances in the understanding of ultra-lean fuel mixtures and how new types of burners and approaches to managing heat flow can reduce problems often found with lean combustion (such as slow, difficult ignition, and frequent flame extinction). In addition to abundant references and examples of recent real-world applications, new to this edition are significantly revised chapters on IC engines and stability/oscillations, and a brand new chapter on case studies and examples. Written by a team of experts, this contributed reference book teaches readers to maximize efficiency and minimize both economic and environmental costs.

  • A comprehensive collection of lean burn technology across the application space, allowing readers to compare and contrast similarities and differences
  • Extensive update on IC Engines including compression ignition (diesel), spark ignition, and after-treatment
  • Extensive update to Stability/Oscillations chapter
  • Includes a new chapter on Case Studies/Examples
  • Covers new developments in lean combustion using high levels of pre-heat and heat recirculating burners, as well as the active control of lean combustion instabilities

Meet the Author

Derek Dunn-Rankin is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. He is the author of the first edition of Lean Combustion. His current research activities include a study of the electrical aspects of microgravity combustion; an effort to develop techniques to measure the size of airborne droplets and particles using laser light scattering; and development of a hydrogen-enhanced IC engine. Dr. Dunn-Rankin also is studying combustion control, the formation of droplet streams at high ambient density, and acoustic interactions with burning droplets. He acted as the co-editor for the Academic Press Combustion Treatise Series from 1997-2002, and is an Associate Editor for the journals Combustion Science and Technology and International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences. He is also an International Executive Board Member and Secretary of the Combustion Institute and has been the UCI Student Chapter Advisor of the Society of Automotive Engineers since 1989

Dr. Peter Therkelsen is a postdoctoral fellow working in the Environmental Energy Technologies Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, focusing on the development and deployment of responsible energy efficiency and generation technologies. He is a graduate of UC Irvine, with B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He has conducted experimental and modeling studies of small scale HCCI engines, hydrogen gas turbine engines, and coal combustion. Additionally, he has participated in studies of high altitude fuel cells for commercial aircraft and energy-efficient utility size gas turbine engine control algorithms
