Modeling of Combustion Systems
A Practical Approach
by Joseph Colannino

Modeling of Combustion Systems provides concrete answers to real problems and is tailor-made to suit the needs of practicing engineers.

Features:

  • Provides a simple, hands-on approach to semi-empirical modeling that presumes a minimal mathematical background
  • Illustrates the discussion with more than 60 fully worked examples, over 100 figures, and nearly 100 tables
  • Includes more than 600 equations for various aspects of combustion such as fuel flow, heat flux, NOx, and CO
  • Explains how to derive a model from first principles and how to fill in gaps with adjustable parameters and actual data from operation
  • Offers guidance on data analysis, statistical testing, choice and design of experiments, and accurate modeling
