Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0408041137, Hardcover)

This work covers the basic theory of spray combustion. Although the emphasis is on the fundamental aspects, some industrial applications have been outlined, and where possible the text is augmented by appendices expanding certain quantitative aspects of the book. The development of spray combustion has effectively followed two separate paths, one concerned with engine applications in which the aerospace applications have dominated the field, the second has been concerned with stationary equipment such as furnaces and boilers. Generally, textbooks have been concerned with one area or the other and the object of this book is to outline the fundamentals of the combustion of sprays in a unified way which may be applied to any existing or future technological application. During the last decade the necessity of controlling the emission of pollutants has assumed greater significance in all aspects of combustion. More recently the requirements have been for pollution control and increased combustion efficiency. In the future it will be necessary to burn fuels which are of low or variable quality or synthetic fuels having properties differing greatly from present-day fuels. For all these developments a greater understanding of spray combustion is required.
