Industrial Boilers and Heat Recovery Steam Generators: Design, Applications, and Calculations

1st Edition

V. Ganapathy
October 16, 2002

Filled with over 225 boiler/HRSG operation and design problems, this book covers steam generators and related systems used in process plants, refineries, chemical plants, electrical utilities, and other industrial settings. Emphasizing the thermal engineering aspects, the author provides...

Applied Combustion Diagnostics

1st Edition

April 26, 2002

The editors have assembled a world-class group of contributors who address the questions the combustion diagnostic community faces. They are chemists who identify the species to be measured and the interfering substances that may be present; physicists, who push the limits of laser spectroscopy and...

Advances in Chemical Propulsion: Science to Technology

1st Edition

Gabriel D. Roy
October 25, 2001

Complex, vast, and multidisciplinary, chemical propulsion has been the subject of extensive investigation over the past few decades. Under the leadership of Gabriel Roy, this has been particularly true at the Office of Naval Research (ONR), where his team has focused on the three primary goals of...

Practical Guide to Industrial Boiler Systems

1st Edition

Ralph Vandagriff
April 18, 2001

This volume covers the fundamentals of boiler systems and gathers hard-to-find facts and observations for designing, constructing and operating industrial power plants in the United States and overseas. It contains formulas and spreadsheets outlining combustion points of natural gas, oil and solid...

Computational Fluid Dynamics in Industrial Combustion

1st Edition

Charles E. Baukal, Jr., Vladimir Gershtein, Xianming Jimmy Li
October 26, 2000

Although many books have been written on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and many written on combustion, most contain very limited coverage of the combination of CFD and industrial combustion. Furthermore, most of these books are written at an advanced academic level, emphasize theory over...

Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion

1st Edition

Charles E. Baukal, Jr.
May 26, 2000

Industry relies heavily on the combustion process. The already high demand for energy, primarily from combustion, is expected to continue to rapidly increase. Yet, the information is scattered and incomplete, with very little attention paid to the overall combustion system. Designed for practicing...

Combustion and Gasification of Coal

1st Edition

A. Williams
May 11, 2000

This book provides an overview of two of the most common uses of coal: combustion and gasification. First, it outlines problems and possible solutions, and then the nature of coal is described. The book goes on to describe the technical aspects of combustion of pulverized coal and the combustion...

Enclosure Fire Dynamics

1st Edition

Bjorn Karlsson, James Quintiere
September 28, 1999

The increasing complexity of technological solutions to both fire safety design issues and fire safety regulations demand higher levels of training and continuing education for fire protection engineers. Historical precedents on how to deal with fire hazards in new or unusual buildings are seldom...
