About this Textbook

Fundamentals of Combustion Processes serves students as a textbook for an upper-division undergraduate and graduate level combustion course in mechanical engineering. The authors focus on fundamental theory of combustion and provide a simplified discussion of basic combustion parameters and processes such as thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, ignition, diffusion, and pre-mixed flames. The text includes applications, example exercises, suggested homework problems, and videos of laboratory demonstrations.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The authors attempt to explain the phenomena of combustion from the basic principles of thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics and chemistry. The book covers various aspects of combustion in a concise manner. … the book is well written with sufficient explanation for the ease of the readers. … it certainly is a graduate text on combustion. In addition, it may attract wide readership from researchers and practicing engineers.” (K. N. Shukla, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1225, 2012)
