The combustion of fossil fuels remains a key technology for the foreseeable future. It is therefore important to understand combustion mechanisms, in particular, the role of turbulence within this process. This monograph presents a thorough introduction to the field of turbulent combustion. After an overview of modeling approaches, Peters considers the three distinct cases of premixed, nonpremixed, and partially premixed combustion, respectively. By demonstrating the current theories of turbulent combustion within a cohesive presentation, this book makes a unified contribution to engineering and applied mathematics.

From Our Editors

The concern for our environment makes it necessary to understand the combustion of fossil fuels. In order to understand fossil fuels, one must first understand combustion mechanics. N. Peters introduces readers to the subject, provides an overview of modelling approaches and examines the latest information and developments in Turbulent Combustion. Peters examines three cases that deal with premixed, nonpremixed and partially premixed combustion. This book will be of interest to students and professionals in the fields of engineering and applied mathematics.

Editorial Reviews

"...this book gives a superb account of the modern developments in turbulence models for reacting flows, and masterfully blends asymptotics, numerics, and experiments into a cohesive description of turbulent combustion...easy and enjoyable to read." SIAM Review
