About this book

This research monograph presents both fundamental science and applied innovations on several key and emerging technologies involving fossil and alternate fuel utilization in power and transport sectors from renowned experts in the field. Some of the topics covered include: autoignition in laminar and turbulent nonpremixed flames; Langevin simulation of turbulent combustion; lean blowout (LBO) prediction through symbolic time series analysis; lasers and optical diagnostics for next generation IC engine development; exergy destruction study on small DI diesel engine; and gasoline direct injection. The book includes a chapter on carbon sequestration and optimization of enhanced oil and gas recovery.  The contents of this book will be useful to researchers and professionals working on all aspects on combustion.

Prof. Avinash Kumar Agarwal: Prof. Avinash Kumar Agarwal joined IIT Kanpur in 2001. Prof. Agarwal was at ERC, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA as a Post-Doctoral Fellow (1999 – 2001). His areas of interest are IC engines, combustion, alternative fuels, hydrogen, conventional fuels, lubricating oil tribology, optical diagnostics, laser ignition, HCCI, emission and particulate control, and large bore engines. Prof. Agarwal has published more than 200 peer reviewed international journal and conference papers. He is associate editor of ASME Journal of Energy Resources Technology, and International Journal of Vehicle Systems Modelling and Testing. He has edited “Handbook of Combustion” (5 Volumes; 3168 pages), published by Wiley VCH, Germany. Prof. Agarwal is a Fellow of SAE (2012), Fellow of ASME (2013) and a Fellow of INAE (2015). Prof. Agarwal is the recipient of Prestigious Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize-2016 in Engineering Sciences.

Dr. Santanu De: Dr. Santanu De is Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Kanpur since December 2014. He received a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the North Bengal University in 2002, and an M. Tech. from IIT Kanpur in 2004, both in Mechanical Engineering. He received his PhD in Aerospace Engineering from IISc, Bangalore in 2012. Prior to joining IIT Kanpur, he served for two years at MTU as a postdoctoral research associate, and one year at the University of Stuttgart. His primary areas of research are numerical modeling of turbulent combustion, spray atomization and combustion, coal gasification and combustion. He is Associate Editor for the ‘Journal of Energy, Environment and Sustainability’.
