Combustion Science and Engineering (Computational Mechanics by Kalyan Annamalai,Ishwar K. Puri

By Kalyan Annamalai,Ishwar K. Puri

scholars embarking on their stories in chemical, mechanical, aerospace, strength, and environmental engineering will face continuously altering combustion difficulties, akin to toxins keep watch over and effort potency, all through their careers. imminent those demanding situations calls for a deep familiarity with the basic idea, arithmetic, and actual ideas of combustion. according to greater than twenty years of educating event, Combustion technological know-how and Engineering lays the mandatory basis whereas utilizing an illustrative, hands-on technique.

Taking a down-to-earth viewpoint, the e-book avoids heavy arithmetic within the first seven chapters and in bankruptcy 17 (pollutants formation and destruction), yet considers molecular thoughts and delves into engineering information. It starts off with an summary of thermodynamics; fundamentals of thermochemistry and chemical equilibrium; descriptions of reliable, liquid, and gaseous fuels; chemical kinetics and mass move; and functions of idea to useful platforms. starting in bankruptcy eight, the authors supply an in depth therapy of differential sorts of conservation equations; analyses of gasoline combustion together with jet combustion and boundary layer difficulties; ignition; flame propagation; interactive and workforce combustion; pollutant formation and regulate; and turbulent combustion.

In addition, this textbook contains plentiful examples, illustrations, and workouts, in addition to spreadsheet software program in combustion on hand for obtain. This software program permits scholars to determine the examples present in the textual content. Combustion technology and Engineering imparts the talents and foundational wisdom beneficial for college kids to effectively method and clear up new problems.
