Experimental Combustion: An Introduction (Paperback)D. P. Mishra (author)
- We can order this
Fulfilling the need for a classical approach, Experimental Combustion: An Introduction begins with an overview of the key aspects of combustion-including chemical kinetics, premixed flame, diffusion flame, and liquid droplet combustion-followed by a discussion of the general elements of measurement systems and data acquisition and analysis. In addition to these aspects, thermal flow measurements, gas composition measurements, and optical combustion diagnostics are covered extensively.
Building upon this foundation in the fundamentals, the text addresses measurements, instruments, analyses, and diagnostics specific to combustion experiments, as well as:
Describes the construction, working principles, application areas, and limitations of the necessary instruments for combustion systemsFamiliarizes the reader with the procedure for uncertainty analysis in combustion experimentsDiscusses advanced optical techniques, namely particle image velocimetry (PIV), laser Doppler anemometry (LDA), and planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) methods
From stoichiometry to smoke meters and statistical analysis, Experimental Combustion: An Introduction provides a solid understanding of the underlying concepts and measurement tools required for the execution and interpretation of practical combustion experiments.

"... other books available in this area do not cover the detailed topics covered here. Energy and combustion is a hot issue. It is expected to be even hotter with more demand in this area as we search for cleaner methods of energy conversion from chemical to thermal energy."

"Providing a collection of measurement techniques that are generally never combined into one book makes this book unusual and valuable for anyone wanting to learn about various methods that could be used to characterize flame combustion or other gaseous combustion events."
