Description

Energy and Combustion Science is a collection of papers that covers advancement in the field of energy and combustion science. The materials presented in the book are organized thematically into parts. The text first covers the issues, concerns, problems of the contemporary combustion technology. The subsequent parts of the book cover various areas in combustions science, namely, pollution, gas, oil, coal, and engines. Most of the articles in the book are concerned with the byproduct of fuel combustion. The text will be of great use to students, researchers, and practitioners of disciplines that deal with the energy and combustion technology.
