    Kyle Boelte: IMG Selfies, Memoir, and the World Beyond the Self



    When I was a teenager in Colorado during the late '90s, I liked to climb 14ers — 14,000-foot mountains. I'd often hike with friends, and at... Continue »

Solid Fuels Combustion and Gasification

by

Solid Fuels Combustion and Gasification Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bridging the gap between theory and application, this reference demonstrates the operational mechanisms, modeling, and simulation of equipment for the combustion and gasification of solid fuels. Solid Fuels Combustion and Gasification: Modeling, Simulation, and Equipment Operation clearly illustrates procedures to improve and optimize the design of future units and the operation of existing industrial systems with recommendations and guidelines from a seasoned professional in the field.

Supplies an abundance of examples, models, and exercises for step-by-step instruction on the modeling and simulation of combustion and gasification machinery

Of critical importance to the industrial and design engineer, Solid Fuels Combustion and Gasification Clearly displays methods to build computer simulation programs that will effectively predict equipment performance Offers methods to formulate sound mathematical models for boilers, gasifiers, furnaces, and incinerators Shows how to interpret simulation results for the best design and operation of combustion and gasification equipment Describes key aspects of solid and gas combustion phenomena Provides detailed discussions of the basic and auxiliary equations used in specific projection models Includes applications of moving and fluidized beds

The author of numerous professional publications, he holds several patents and is a member of the American Chemical Society, the Brazilian Society of Chemical Engineering, and the advisory committees of several national and international meetings on energy. An experienced consultant, he has worked for respected organizations such as the Institute of Gas Technology, Chicago, Illinois. He received the B.Sc. (1973) and M.Sc. (1981) degrees in chemical engineering from the University of S o Paulo, Brazil, and the Ph.D. (1987) in chemical engineering from the University of Sheffield, England.

Book News Annotation:

Bridging the gap between theory and application, De Souza-Santos (mechanical engineering, State University-Campinas, Brazil) explains the operational mechanisms, modeling, and simulation of equipment for the combustion and gasification of solid fuels. Despite the focus on combustion and gasification, basic methods illustrated here can be employed for modeling a range of other processes or equipment in the processing industry. The book will be useful for graduate students, engineers, and other professionals entering the area of solid fuel combustion and gasification who need an introduction to mathematical modeling and simulation.

Synopsis:

Correlating theory and application, Solid Fuels Combustion and Gasification demonstrates the operational mechanisms, modeling, and simulation of equipment for the combustion and gasification of solid fuels. This reference illustrates how to optimize the design of future units and the operation of existing systems with recommendations and guidelines from a seasoned professional in the field. It shows how chemical and physical transformations, equipment design and operational conditions, and transport phenomena interact for correct simulation and forecasting of system operations, and displays methods to build computer simulation programs to predict equipment performance.
