Combustion Engineering's goal is to present the fundamentals of combustion science with application to today's energy challenges. Using combustion applications to reinforce the fundamentals of combustion science. Combustion is a critical issue impacting energy utilization, sustainability, and climate change. The challenge is to design safe and efficient combustion systems for many types of fuels in a way that protects the environment and enables sustainable lifestyles. Emphasizing the use of combustion fundamentals in the engineering and design of combustion systems, this text provides detailed coverage of gaseous, liquid, and solid fuel combustion, including focused coverage of biomass combustion. Presenting a renewed emphasis on fundamentals and updated applications to illustrate the latest trends relevant to combustion engineering, the authors provide a number of pedagogic features, including: Numerous tables with practical data and formulae that link combustion fundamentals to engineering practice. Concise presentation of mathematical methods with qualitative descriptions of their use. Coverage of alternative and renewable fuel topics throughout the text. Extensive example problems, chapter-end problems, and references --Book Jacket.
