Description

This study documents the experimental techniques developed to study flame microstructure, presenting the results and outlining the impact that these studies have had on the fields of combustion and high temperature processes. Premixed laminar flames are the simplest, and show the full range of combustion processes. They are ideal models for studying individual high temperature chemistries, physical processes, and their interactions, and are therefore used to illuminate the processes common to flames. Experimental methods for measuring and mathematical methods for analyzing laminar flame structure are presented and the understanding of flame processes is stressed throughout.

Review quote

"The publication of this book represents a significant contribution to the literature in the field of combustion." --Applied Mechanics Review"After covering studies of historical interest, the book describes current research on flame sampling techniques, burner systems, and the analysis of flame data . . . . This ample coverage of the subject is augmented with an extensive bibliography, including over 50 pages of key references, and numerous tables. There is something here for everyone and this book is likely to be as useful to the interested browser as it certainly will be to specialists in flame and combustion studies."--Chemistry in Britain "The publication of this book represents a significant contribution to the literature in the field of combustion." --Applied Mechanics Review"After covering studies of historical interest, the book describes current research on flame sampling techniques, burner systems, and the analysis of flame data . . . .
