 Preface

This book is primarily intended for introducing combustion to senior undergraduate and junior graduate students in mechanical and chemical engineering.  Some undergraduate knowledge of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics is required to appreciate the material covered.

Turbulence-Flame Interactions

Spark-ignited premixed laminar & turbulent flames

 

Relative flame / eddy size

Shortly after ignition, r < Λ
@ a later time, r > Λ
