Description - Fundamentals of Turbulent and Multiphase Combustion by Kenneth Kuan-yun Kuo
Detailed coverage of advanced combustion topics from the author
of Principles of Combustion, Second Edition
Turbulence, turbulent combustion, and multiphase reacting flows
have become major research topics in recent decades due to their
application across diverse fields, including energy, environment,
propulsion, transportation, industrial safety, and nanotechnology.
Most of the knowledge accumulated from this research has never been
published in book form until now. Fundamentals of Turbulent
and Multiphase Combustion presents up-to-date, integrated coverage
of the fundamentals of turbulence, combustion, and multiphase
phenomena along with useful experimental techniques, including
non-intrusive, laser-based measurement techniques, providing a firm
background in both contemporary and classical approaches. Beginning
with two full chapters on laminar premixed and non-premixed flames,
this book takes a multiphase approach, beginning with more common
topics and moving on to higher-level applications.
In addition, Fundamentals of Turbulent and Multiphase
Addresses seven basic topical areas in combustion and multiphase
flows, including laminar premixed and non-premixed flames, theory
of turbulence, turbulent premixed and non-premixed flames, and
Covers spray atomization and combustion, solid-propellant
combustion, homogeneous propellants, nitramines, reacting
boundary-layer flows, single energetic particle combustion, and
granular bed combustion
Provides experimental setups and results whenever
Supported with a large number of examples and problems as well
as a solutions manual, Fundamentals of Turbulent and Multiphase
Combustion is an important resource for professional engineers and
researchers as well as graduate students in mechanical, chemical,
and aerospace engineering.
