Field Modeling Approach -- Part I. Mathematical Equations -- Part II. Turbulence -- Additional Considerations in Field Modeling -- Part III. Combustion -- Part IV. Radiation -- Further Considerations in Field Modeling -- Part V. Soot Production -- Part VI. Pyrolysis -- Advance Technique in Field Modeling -- Other Challenges in Fire Safety Engineering.
Summary: Fire and combustion presents a significant engineering challenge to mechanical, civil and dedicated fire engineers, as well as specialists in the process and chemical, safety, buildings and structural fields. We are reminded of the tragic outcomes of 'untenable' fire disasters such as at King's Cross underground station or Switzerland's St Gotthard tunnel. In these and many other cases, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is at the forefront of active research into unravelling the probable causes of fires and helping to design structures and systems to ensure that they are less likely in the future. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is routinely used as an analysis tool in fire and combustion engineering as it possesses the ability to handle the complex geometries and characteristics of combustion and fire. This book shows engineering students and professionals how to understand and use this powerful tool in the study of combustion processes, and in the engineering of safer or more fire resistant (or conversely, more fire-efficient) structures.
