Fundamentals of Combustion Processes is designed as a textbook for an upper-division undergraduate and graduate level combustion course in mechanical engineering. The authors focus on the 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 exploration of applications, example exercises, suggested homework problems and videos of laboratory demonstrations
A simplified and straightforward presentation of complex combustion principles and applications Includes lab demonstrations that demonstrate combustion concepts in action on extras Provides clear examples and suggested exercises with additional author resources Solutions Manual for instructors will be posted on extras.springer.com
