Overview

Introduction to Combustion: Concepts and Applications / Edition 3

The need for an introductory text on combustion, specifically structured for an undergraduate readership, has served as the motivation for writing this book. The offering of an introductory course at Penn State and the development of an introductory textbook were conceived jointly, and this book is the result of those developments.
