Fundamentals of Combustion Processes [electronic resource] / by Sara McAllister, Jyh-Yuan Chen, A. Carlos Fernandez-Pello. - New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer, 2011. - XXIV, 304 p. online resource. - Mechanical Engineering Series, 0941-5122 . - Mechanical Engineering Series, .

Preface -- Nomenclature.-  Fuel -- Thermodynamics of Combustion -- Chemical Kinetics -- Review of Transport Equations and Properties -- Ignition Phenomena -- Premixed Flames -- Non-Premixed Flames (Diffusion Flames) -- Droplet Evaporation and Combustion.-  Emissions -- Premixed Piston IC Engines.– Diesel Engines -- Labs -- Properties of Fuels -- Properties of Air at 1 atm -- Properties of Ideal Combustion Gases -- Elementary Reaction Mechanisms -- Summary of Limits of Flammability -- Minimum Ignition Energy -- Antoine Equation -- Flash Points for Common Fuels -- Properties of Some Alcohol Fuels and Ammonia.

Fundamentals of Combustion Processes serves students as a textbook for an upper-division undergraduate and graduate level combustion course in mechanical engineering. The authors focus on fundamental theory of combustion and provide a simplified discussion of basic combustion parameters and processes such as thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, ignition, diffusion, and pre-mixed flames. The text includes applications, example exercises, suggested homework problems, and videos of laboratory demonstrations.
