Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion

by

Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Industry relies heavily on the combustion process. The already high demand for energy, primarily from combustion, is expected to continue to rapidly increase. Yet, the information is scattered and incomplete, with very little attention paid to the overall combustion system. Designed for practicing engineers, Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion eclipses the extant literature with an emphasis on the aspects of heat transfer that directly apply to industry.

From a practical point of view, the editor organizes relevant papers into a single, coherent resource. The book encompasses heat transfer, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics, including the little-covered subjects of the use of oxygen to enhance combustion and flame impingement. Maximizing applications and minimizing theory, it covers modes of heat transfer, computer modeling, heat transfer from flame impingement, from burners, low temperature, high temperature, and advanced applications, and more.

The theoretical focus of most literature has created a clear need for a practical treatment of the heat transfer as it applies to industrial combustion systems. With detailed coverage and extensive references, Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion fills this void.

Features

Book News Annotation:

A mechanical engineer with a company based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Baukal has compiled practical information from the existing literature to provide his fellow engineers a single-volume reference on aspects of heat transfer that apply directly to industry. He minimizes theory and maximizes applications of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and other dimensions of heat transfer, focusing on atmospheric combustion and gaseous fuels. The sections cover the basics, general concepts of heat transfer in industrial combustion systems, and special applications. He includes discussions of flame impingements including experimentation, and using oxygen to enhance combustion.

Synopsis:

Designed for the professional engineers, Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion focuses on the aspects of heat transfer that directly apply to industrial applications. It fills a need for a practical treatment of the subject as it applies to industrial combustion systems. Organized into three parts, the text first considers the basics of heat transfer in combustion, then deals with the general concepts of heat transfer in industrial combustion systems, and finally addresses specific applications of heat transfer in industrial combustion.
