Description: This is the Third Edition of Glassman's frequently adopted text, Combustion. This popular textbook was developed from Dr. Glassman's notes for his Princeton University course on Combustion. The book is unique in providing fundamental physical insights into the underlying principles of combustion while encompassing applications to engine technology, fire safety, materials synthesis as well as detailed environmental considerations. Enhancements in this Third Edition includes numerous figures developed from computational codes, to further clarify the underlying chemical and physical concepts in the text. Problem sets are included in each chapter and a solutions manual will be available. Te enlarged appendixes now detail available combustion codes.

"This book has now become one of the most important textbooks and teaching aids to combustion. It will remain as a record of the great debt that combustion science and technology owes to the teachings of Professor Glassman". -- International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer

This Third Edition of Glassman's classic text clearly defines the role of chemistry, physics, and fluid mechanics as applied to the complex topic of combustion. Glassman's insightful introductory text emphasizes underlying physical and chemical principles, and encompasses engine technology, fire safety, materials synthesis, detonation phenomena, hydrocarbon fuel oxidation mechanisms, and environmental considerations. Combustion has been rewritten to integrate the text, figures, and appendixes, detailing available combustion codes, making it not only an excellent introductory text but also an important reference source for professionals in the field.
-- Explains complexcombustion phenomena with physical insight rather than extensive mathematics
-- Clarifies postulates in the text using extensive computational results in figures
-- Lists modern combustion programs indicating usage and availability
-- Relates combustion concepts to practical applications
