About the Authors
  • Combustion involves change in the chemical state of a substance from a fuel-state to a product-state via chemical reaction accompanied by release of heat energy. Design or performance evaluation of equipment also requires knowledge of the RATE of change of state. This rate is governed by the laws of thermodynamics and by the empirical sciences of heat and mass transfer, chemical kinetics and fluid dynamics. Theoretical treatment of combustion requires integrated knowledge of these subjects and strong mathematical and numerical skills. ANALYTIC COMBUSTION is written for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professionals in mechanical, aeronautical, and chemical engineering. Topics were carefully selected and presented to facilitate learning with emphasis on effective mathematical formulations and solution strategies. The book features over 60 solved numerical problems and analytical derivations and nearly 145 end-of-chapter exercise problems. The presentation is gradual starting from Thermodynamics of Pure and Mixture substances, Chemical Equilibrium, building to a uniquely strong chapter on Application Case-Studies.

    • Over 150 end-of-chapter exercises, with solutions to the exercises available
    • Chapter 7 on thermochemical reactors is notably strong
    • Chapters 4, 5 and 6 deal with practical applications

    Anil W. Date, Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay
    Anil W. Date received his Ph.D. in Heat Transfer from Imperial College London. He has been a member of the Thermal and Fluids Group of the Mechanical Engineering Department at IIT Bombay since 1973. Professor Date has taught both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in thermodynamics, energy conversion, heat and mass transfer and combustion. He is actively engaged in research and consulting in enhanced convective heat/mass transfer, stability and phase-change in nuclear thermo-hydraulics loops, numerical methods applied to computational fluid dynamics, solidification and melting and interfacial flows. Professor Date has published in the International Journal of Heat Mass Transfer, the Journal of Enhanced Heat Transfer, the Journal of Numerical Heat Transfer, the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer and has carried out important sponsored and consultancy projects for national agencies. He has been Editor for India of the Journal of Enhanced Heat Transfer. Professor Date has held visiting professorships at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany and City University of Hong Kong and has been Visiting Scientist at Cornell University and UIUC, USA. He has delivered lectures and seminars in Australia, the UK, the USA, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Hong Kong and China. Professor Date founded the Center for Technology Alternatives for Rural Areas (CTARA) in IIT Bombay in 1985 and assumed its headship again in 2005. He derives great satisfaction from applying thermo-fluids and mechanical science to rural technology problems and has inspired several generation of students to work on such problems and taught courses in science, technology, and society and appropriate technology. He was elected Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering (FNAE, 2001), received the Excellence in Teaching Award of IIT Bombay in 2006 and was chosen as the first Rahul Bajaj Chair-Professor of Mechanical Engineering by IIT Bombay in 2009. Professor Date is the author of Introduction to Computationa
