Topics in Environmental and Safety Aspects of Combustion Technology
234 × 156mm
The book covers a number of quite diverse topics and has underlying chemistry, especially combustion chemistry, as a unifying theme across the chapters. There is frequent reference to the research literature, and accounts of many case studies. The text is backed up by numerous figures and tables. There are over 40 numerical examples in an appendix, highly suitable for tutorial use, with full worked solutions in a second appendix.
