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.
