About this Textbook

Combustion is an old technology, which at present provides about 90% of our worldwide energy support (e.g., in traffic, electrical power generation, heating).
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 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 are described for the simulation of combustion processes. Fachgebiet: Fundamentals of Engineering Science Zielgruppe: Research and Development
