Fundamentals of Combustion Processes is designed as a textbook for an upper-division undergraduate and graduate level combustion course in mechanical engineering. The authors focus on the fundamental theory of combustion and provide a simplified discussion of basic combustion parameters and processes such as thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, ignition, diffusion and pre-mixed flames. The text includes exploration of applications, example exercises, suggested homework problems and videos of laboratory demonstrationsMost fuels currently used in combustion systems are derived from non-renewable fossil sources. Use of these afossil fuelsa contributes to global warming effects because of the net-positive amount of carbon dioxide emissions inherent to their anbsp;...
