Combustion involves change in the chemical state of a substance from a fuel-state to a product-state via chemical reaction accompanied by release of heat energy. Design or performance evaluation of equipment also requires knowledge of the rate of change of state. This rate is governed by the laws of thermodynamics and by the empirical sciences of heat and mass transfer, chemical kinetics and fluid dynamics. Analytic Combustion is written for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professionals in mechanical, aeronautical and chemical engineering. Topics were carefully selected and presented to facilitate learning with emphasis on effective mathematical formulations and solution strategies. The book features over 60 solved numerical problems and analytical derivations and nearly 145 end-of-chapter exercise problems. The presentation is gradual, starting from thermodynamics of pure and mixture substances, and chemical equilibrium, building to a uniquely strong chapter on application case studies.Read more
- Over 150 end-of-chapter exercises, with solutions to the exercises available
- Chapter 7 on thermochemical reactors is notably strong
- Chapters 4, 5 and 6 deal with practical applications
