This book, as stated in Preface, is intended to “fill a gap in the literature for books on heat transfer in industrial combustion, written for the practicing engineers.” This reviewer would like to congratulate the author for a well-written and a comprehensive book on industrial combustion. This book covers the three modes of heat transfer and their relevance to industrial combustion. It also covers the modeling strategies, including the thermodynamic equilibrium approximation, for example, using the robust NASA equilibrium code; correlations for heat calculation; and CFD-base multidimensional modeling. In addition, this book gives a comprehensive...
