Book Preface

This book is a valuable scientific and technical reference for engineers and scientists as well as for postgraduate students in the academic community. Moreover, the book will help to establish a link between principles and practical applications in the field of combustion. It can also be used as a bibliography to present the background of different combustion researchers.

The book contains brief descriptions of fundamental and combustion processes, followed by an extensive survey of the combustion research technology. It also includes mathematical modeling of the processes covering mainly premixed and diffusion flames, where many chemical and physical processes compete in complex ways, for both laminar and turbulent flows. This provides a unique bridge between combustion fundamentals and combustion technology, which should make the book a valuable technical reference for many engineers and scientists. Moreover, the book gives the reader sufficient background of basic engineering sciences such as chemistry, thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. The mentioned research and mathematical models fit between small-scale laboratory burner flames, and large-scale industrial boilers, furnaces and combustion chambers. The materials of this book have been collected from previous relevant research and some selected papers of the authors and co-workers, which have been presented mainly in different refereed journals, international conferences and symposiums.

Furthermore, the book includes some of the many recent general correlations for the characteristics of laminar, turbulent, premixed and diffusion flames in an easily usable form. The authors believe that further progress in optimizing combustion performance and reducing polluting emissions can only be treated through understanding of combustion chemistry. Therefore, the book involves combustion chemistry models that validate experimental data for different fuels. These models are sufficiently accurate to allow confident predictions of the flame characteristics.
