About this Textbook

Combustion is an old technology, which at present provides about 90% of our worldwide energy support. Combustion research in the past used fluid mechanics with global heat release by chemical reactions described with thermodynamics, assuming infinitely fast reactions. This approach was useful for stationary combustion processes, but it is not sufficient for transient processes like ignition and quenching or for pollutant formation. Yet pollutant formation during combustion of fossil fuels is a central topic and will continue to be so in the future. This book provides a detailed and rigorous treatment of the coupling of chemical reactions and fluid flow. Also, combustion-specific topics of chemistry and fluid mechanics are considered and tools described for the simulation of combustion processes.

The actual fourth edition presents a completely restructured book: 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 earth’s 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 appear heavily revised.

Reviews

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)
