An Introduction to Combustion: Concepts and Applications

Suitable for junior/senior undergraduates or graduate students in mechanical engineering and practicing engineers, this title provides easy-to-understand analyses of basic combustion concepts and an introduction of a variety of practical applications that motivate or relate to the various theoretical concepts.

Introduction to Combustion is the leading combustion textbook for undergraduate and graduate students because of its easy-to-understand analyses of basic combustion concepts and its introduction of a wide variety of practical applications that motivate or relate to the various theoretical concepts. This is a text that is useful for junior/senior undergraduates or graduate students in mechanical engineering and practicing engineers.
The third edition updates and adds topics related to protection of the environment, climate change, and energy use. Additionally, a new chapter is added on fuels due to the continued focus on conservation and energy independence.
