A hands-on, integrated approach to solving combustion problemsin diverse areas An understanding of turbulence, combustion, and multiphasereacting flows is essential for engineers and scientists in manyindustries, including power genera-tion, jet and rocket propulsion,pollution control, fire prevention and safety, and materialprocessing. This book offers a highly practical discussion ofburning behavior and chemical processes occurring in diversematerials, arming readers with the tools they need to solve themost complex combustion problems facing the scientific communitytoday. The second of a two-volume work, Applications of Turbulentand Multiphase Combustion expands on topics involving laminarflames from Professor Kuo's bestselling book Principles ofCombustion, Second Edition, then builds upon the theory discussedin the companion volume Fundamentals of Turbulent and MultiphaseCombustion to address in detail cutting-edge experimentaltechniques and applications not covered anywhere else. Special features of this book include: Coverage of advanced applications such as solid propellants,burning behavior, and chemical boundary layer flows A multiphase systems approach discussing basic concepts beforemoving to higher-level applications A large number of practical examples gleaned from the authors'experience along with problems and a solutions manual Engineers and researchers in chemical and mechanical engineeringand materials science will find Applications of Turbulent andMultiphase Combustion an indispensable guide for upgrading theirskills and keeping up with this rapidly evolving area. It is alsoan excellent resource for students and professionals in mechanical,chemical, and aerospace engineering.
