About the Authors
  • This survey of the current state of the art in computational models for turbulent reacting flows carefully analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of the various techniques described. Rodney Fox focuses on the formulation of practical models as opposed to numerical issues arising from their solution. He develops a theoretical framework based on the one-point, one-time joint probability density function (PDF). The study reveals that all commonly employed models for turbulent reacting flows can be formulated in terms of the joint PDF of the chemical species and enthalpy.

    • Provides a unified modern treatment of computational fluid dynamics models for turbulent reacting flow
    • Emphasizes models that can handle detailed finite-rate chemistry as opposed to specialized applications (e.g., combustion)
    • The only text available that treats CFD models for reacting flows from the standpoint of chemical reactor design

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...I strongly recommend this book, and I feel it would make an excellent addition to any personal or public library." AIAA Journal

    "Through his research over the past decade, Fox has become a master of the material described in the book, and has made significant contributions to the subject. The writing is clear and authoritative, and contains ample historical and modern references. The book is attractively pressented and has a good index." Journal of Fluid Mechanics
