Combustion and Mass Transfer: A Textbook with Multiple-Choice Exercises for Engineering Students is a 20-chapter lecture text that covers various aspects of combustion and mass transfer. Each of the 20 chapters is provided with a set partly analytical and multiple-choice tutorial exercises, designed to assist the student to understand the material of the lectures. The opening chapters deal with the importance of combustion and mass transfer processes. The succeeding chapters survey the concepts and principles of droplet vaporization, droplet combustion, liquid-propellant rocket, and laminar and turbulent jet. These topics are followed by discussions of laminar and turbulent diffusion flame, kinetically-influenced phenomena, chemical kinetics, and spontaneous ignition. The remaining chapters consider the basic concepts of stirred reactor, flame stabilization, laminar flame propagation, spark ignition, and coal-particle combustion. This book is intended for undergraduate mechanical engineering students.
