About the Authors
  • Reactive flows encompass a broad range of physical phenomena, interacting over many different time and space scales. Such flows occur in combustion, chemical lasers, the earth's oceans and atmosphere, and in stars. Because of a similarity in their descriptive equations, procedures for constructing numerical models of these systems are also similar, and these similarities can be exploited. Moreover, using the latest technology, what were once difficult and expensive computations can now be done on desktop computers. This new edition of a highly successful book presents algorithms useful for reactive flow simulations, describes trade-offs involved in their use, and gives guidance for building and using models of complex reactive flows. It takes account of the explosive growth in computer technology and the greatly increased capacity for solving complex reactive-flow problems that has occurred since the previous edition was published more than fifteen years ago. An indispensable guide on how to construct, use, and interpret numerical simulations of reactive flows, this book will be welcomed by advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and a wide range of researchers and practitioners in engineering, physics, and chemistry.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book takes account of the explosive growth in computer technology and the greatly increased capacity for solving complex reactive flow problems that have occurred since the first edition was published in 1987. It presents algorithms useful for reactive flow simulations, describes tradeoffs involved in their use, and gives guidance for building and using models of complex reactive flows. The text covers both new topics and significant changes in the treatment of radiation transport, coupling, grids and representations, and turbulence." International Aerospace Abstracts

    "I find this book a very useful refrence since it is written by people with first hand experience in 'dirty computation,' who can apreciate the practical problems a numerical modeller may face up with." The Aeronautical Journal, Ning Qin, Cranfield University
