Sharply focused on the material relevant to practicing engineers, Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion culls the extant literature to provide a single source of reference on the practical aspects of heat transfer that directly apply to industry. It minimizes theory and maximizes applications in a coherent presentation of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer topics.
Centering his discussions on atmospheric combustion and gaseous fuels, the author moves from the fundamentals through advanced applications in a systematic exposition presented in three major sections:
The basics of heat transfer in combustion - with chapters on the modes of heat transfer, computer modeling, and experimental techniques
General concepts of heat transfer in industrial combustion systems - including heat transfer from flame impingement, from burners, and in furnaces
Specific applications of heat transfer in industrial combustion - such as lower temperature applications, higher temperature applications, and advanced applications such as submerged combustion
The theoretical perspective of most of the available literature has created a clear need for a practical elucidation of heat transfer as it applies to industrial combustion systems. With its unified treatment, detailed coverage, and extensive references, Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion fills this important niche.
* Focuses on the practical aspects of heat transfer pertinent to industrial applications rather than on theory and mathematics
* Integrates thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics
* Includes coverage of flame impingement, including experimentation, measurement, and solutions to these kinds of problems
* Explores the use of oxygen to enhance combustion
* Offers hundreds of illustrations
