In Flame Structure and Processes, renowned physical chemist Robert M. Fristrom comprehensively documents the numerous experimental techniques used to study flame microstructure, and provides an interdisciplinary overview of how such research is revealing exciting new information aboutcombustion and high temperature processes. Using premixed laminar flames as models for studying individual high temperature chemistries, physical processes, and their interactions, Fristrom expertly details experimental and mathematical methods for analyzing overall flame structure or any otherhigh temperature reacting flow system. Specialized techniques required to obtain high spatial resolution under extreme temperature conditions are also described. Fristrom goes on to discuss what is currently known about flame chemistry, physical processes common to all flames, and combustion. Anextensive bibliography and many useful tables round out the book. The only up-to-date book solely devoted to flame structure and processes, this book will be welcomed by students and professionals in chemical/mechanical engineering and physical chemistry.
Robert M. Fristrom is at Applied Physics Laboratory, The Johns Hopkins University.

Editorial Reviews

"After covering studies of historical interest, the book describes current research on flame sampling techniques, burner systems, and the analysis of flame data . . . . This ample coverage of the subject is augmented with an extensive bibliography, including over 50 pages of key references,and numerous tables. There is something here for everyone and this book is likely to be as useful to the interested browser as it certainly will be to specialists in flame and combustion studies."--Chemistry in Britain
