About this book

Introduction

Combustion systems are confined fields of compressible fluids where exothermic processes of combustion take place, subject to conditions imposed at their boundaries. The subject of Dynamics of Combustion Systems is presented in three parts:

Part 1. Exothermicity – considering the thermodynamic effects due to evolution of exothermic energy in a combustion system

Chapter 1. Thermodynamic Aspects
Chapter 2. Evolutionary Aspects
Chapter 3. Heat Transfer Aspects
Chapter 4. Chemical Kinetic Aspects

Part 2. Field– exposing the dynamic properties of flow fields where the exothermic energy is deposited

Chapter 5. Aerodynamic Aspects
Chapter 6. Random Vortex Method
Chapter 7. Gasdynamic Aspects
Chapter 8. Gasdynamic Fronts

Part 3. Explosion – revealing the dynamic features of fields and fronts due to rapid deposition of exothermic energy

Chapter 9. Blast Waves
Chapter 10. Self-Similar Blast Wave
Chapter 11. Phase Space Method
Chapter 12. Detonations

Keywords

Compressible Fluids Energy Conversion Exothermic Processes Explosions Fluid Dynamics Reaction combustion heat transfer
