Book Description:
Combustion Engineering, a topic generally taught at the upper
undergraduate and graduate level in most of the universities
for mechanical engineering, automobile engineering
disciplines, combustion is the study of rapid energy and mass
transfer usually through the common physical phenomena of
flame oxidation. Combustion book by the authors Irvin
Gassman and Richard A. Yetter covers the physics and
chemistry of this process and the engineering applications
from the generation of power such as the internal combustion
automobile engine to the gas turbine engine. Renewed concerns
about energy efficiency and fuel costs, along with continued
concerns over toxic and particulate emissions have kept the
interest in this vital area of engineering high and brought
about new developments in both fundamental knowledge of flame
and combustion physics as well as new technologies for flame
and fuel control.
