1 - 2 weeks availability
An introduction to far-reaching developments in theoretical combustion, with special emphasis on flame stability, a topic that has, to date, benefited most from the application of modern asymptotic methods. The authors provide a modern view of flame theory, and a complete description of the longstanding ignition and explosion problems, including the solutions that were made available independently by Kapila and Kassoy through activation-energy asymptotics, the main theme of this monograph.
Pre-asymptotic combustion revisited; Governing equations, Asymptotics, and deflagrations; General deflagrations; SVFs and NEFs; Stability of the plane deflagration wave; Cellular flames; Pulsating flames; Counterflow diffusion flames; Spherical diffusion flames; Free-boundary problems.
