Detailed coverage of advanced combustion topics from the authorof Principles of Combustion, Second Edition Turbulence, turbulent combustion, and multiphase reacting flowshave become major research topics in recent decades due to theirapplication across diverse fields, including energy, environment,propulsion, transportation, industrial safety, and nanotechnology.Most of the knowledge accumulated from this research has never beenpublished in book form—until now. Fundamentals of Turbulentand Multiphase Combustion presents up-to-date, integrated coverageof the fundamentals of turbulence, combustion, and multiphasephenomena along with useful experimental techniques, includingnon-intrusive, laser-based measurement techniques, providing a firmbackground in both contemporary and classical approaches. Beginningwith two full chapters on laminar premixed and non-premixed flames,this book takes a multiphase approach, beginning with more commontopics and moving on to higher-level applications. In addition, Fundamentals of Turbulent and MultiphaseCombustion: Addresses seven basic topical areas in combustion and multiphaseflows, including laminar premixed and non-premixed flames, theoryof turbulence, turbulent premixed and non-premixed flames, andmultiphase flows Covers spray atomization and combustion, solid-propellantcombustion, homogeneous propellants, nitramines, reactingboundary-layer flows, single energetic particle combustion, andgranular bed combustion Provides experimental setups and results wheneverappropriate Supported with a large number of examples and problems as wellas a solutions manual, Fundamentals of Turbulent and MultiphaseCombustion is an important resource for professional engineers andresearchers as well as graduate students in mechanical, chemical,and aerospace engineering.

This book describes the most widely applicable modeling approaches. Chapters are organized in six groups covering from fundamentals to relevant applications. The book covers particle-based methods and also discusses Eulerian-Eulerian and Eulerian-Lagrangian techniques based on finite-volume schemes. Moreover, the possibility of modeling the poly-dispersity of the secondary phases in Eulerian-Eulerian schemes by solving the population balance equation is discussed.

Das Fachbuch Verbrennung vermittelt einen Überblick über die Grundlagen von Verbrennungsprozessen und trägt zu einem Verständnis ihrer Auswirkungen auf praktische Anwendungen bei. In den ersten Kapiteln finden sich die physikalisch-chemischen Grundlagen. Anhand verschiedener laminarer Flammentypen werden die Wechselwirkungen zwischen chemischer Reaktionskinetik, molekularen Transportprozessen und Strömung beschrieben. Bei der Behandlung turbulenter Verbrennungsprozesse werden aktuelle Verfahren zur Beschreibung der Kopplung zwischen chemischer Reaktion und turbulentem Strömungsfeld verwendet. Anwendungen sind das Motorklopfen und die Schadstoffbildung. Die dritte Auflage wurde im Hinblick auf die aktuelle Forschung erweitert und aktualisiert.

This 2005 book is targeted to graduate students and researchers at the cutting edge of investigations into the fundamental nature of multiphase flows. It is intended as a reference book for the basic methods used in the treatment of multiphase flows. The subject of multiphase flows encompasses a vast field, a host of different technological contexts, a wide spectrum of different scales, a broad range of engineering disciplines, and a multitude of different analytical approaches. The aim of Fundamentals of Multiphase Flow is to bring much of this fundamental understanding together into one book, presenting a unifying approach to the fundamental ideas of multiphase flows. The book summarizes those fundamental concepts with relevance to a broad spectrum of multiphase flows. It does not pretend to present a comprehensive review of the details of any one multiphase flow or technological context; references to such reviews are included where appropriate.

Numerical Prediction of Flow, Heat Transfer, Turbulence and Combustion: Selected Works of Professor D. Brian Spalding focuses on the many contributions of Professor Spalding on thermodynamics. This compilation of his works is done to honor the professor on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Relatively, the works contained in this book are selected to highlight the genius of Professor Spalding in this field of interest. The book presents various research on combustion, heat transfer, turbulence, and flows. His thinking on separated flows paved the way for the multi-dimensional modeling of turbulence. Arguments on the universality of the models of turbulence and the problems that are associated with combustion engineering are clarified. The text notes the importance of combustion science as well as the problems associated with it. Mathematical computations are also presented in determining turbulent flows in different environments, including on curved pipes, curved ducts, and rotating ducts. These calculations are presented to further strengthen the claims of Professor Spalding in this discipline. The book is a great find for those who are interested in studying thermodynamics.
