Provides an accessible, comprehensive treatment of pollutant formation due to combustion processes
Stresses combustion basics, thereby illustrating the underlying theory behind application
Discusses both theory and experimental results, giving a more complete perspective on the subject
Includes extensive examples and solutions throughout, guiding the reader through the application of theory and other critical concepts
Contains a comprehensive list of references
Although there is a large body of research literature pertaining to the environmental implications of combustion processes, this book is the first to present a concise treatment of fundamental issues that can be quickly and easily used by entry-level researchers. The book is arranged so that it logically flows from fundamentals to pollutants, through theory, and on to modeling. Chapters cover combustion fundamentals, gaseous pollution, and heterogeneous combustion. Combustion theory in the form of Activation Energy Asymptotics is included for the lay reader, followed by a presentation of reduced mechanisms in the context of burning, a topic of environmental significance. Turbulent combustion modeling is also discussed.
