Combustion Engineering, Second Edition maintains the same goal as the original: to present the fundamentals of combustion science with application to today’s energy challenges. Using combustion applications to reinforce the fundamentals of combustion science, this text provides a uniquely...

Energetic Materials: Thermophysical Properties, Predictions, and Experimental Measurements

1st Edition

Veera Boddu, Paul Redner
December 07, 2010

The development, processing, and lifecycle environmental impact analysis of energetic materials all pose various challenges and potential dangers. Because safety concerns severely limit study of these substances at most research facilities, engineers will especially appreciate a tool that...

Industrial Combustion Testing

1st Edition

Charles E. Baukal, Jr.
July 29, 2010

Until now, anyone conducting industrial combustion tests had to either rely on old methods, go scurrying through the literature to find proven applicable methodologies, or hire top-shelf consultants such as those that work for cutting-edge companies like John Zink. Manufacturers can no longer take...
