This Second Edition retains all the same primary objectives as the original text: First, to present basic combustion concepts using relatively simple and easy-to -understand analyses; and second, to introduce a wide variety of practical applications which motivate or relate to the various theoretical concepts. The overarching goal is to provide a textbook which is useful for both formal undergraduate study in mechanical engineering and in related fields, and informal study by practicing engineers.

Features:

- The addition of additional topics and more in-depth coverage of advanced topics. Additional topics include Multicomponent Diffusion, Counterflow Diffusion Flames, and a discussion of the Molecular Structure of Fuels.
- Updated software is now Windows 95/98 compatible.
- New problems have been added to many chapters and several additional examples are now included in the text. Those problems requiring, or benefiting from the use of a computer are clearly marked as so.
