Title: Combustion, flames and explosions of gases. Third edition

Abstract

The fundamental principles of gas combustion are examined in a comprehensive introduction for chemists, physicists, and engineers. Topics addressed include the chemistry and kinetics of H/sub 2/-O/sub 2/, CO-O/sub 2/, and hydrocarbon-O/sub 2/ reactions; combustion waves in laminar and turbulent flow; air entrainment and the burning of gaseous-fuel jets; and detonation waves in gases. Consideration is given to flame emission spectra, ionization and electric-field effects in flames, the state of the burned gas, industrial heating, and internal-combustion engines. Extensive diagrams, graphs, photographs, and tables of numerical data are provided.
