Combustion: From Basics to Applications.
Combustion: From Basics to Applications
Maximilian Lackner, Arp[sz]d B. Palot[sz]s, and Franz Winter
After reviewing the history of combustion, this textbook introduces the properties and physicochemical characteristics of gaseous, liquid, and solid fuels, the conservation of energy equations, transport processes, chemical reaction mechanisms, and the environmental impacts of pollution. A survey of measurement methods compares the different techniques for investigating combustion processes, and the applications chapter describes the operation of burners, industrial boilers, furnaces, engines, and gasifiers. Color photographs of equipment, installations, and components are provided. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
