Summary and Info
Authored by some of the most prestigious international researchers, this book contains 21 papers that address five general catagories of combustion science: flame theory, heterogeneous combustion, unsteady and cellular combustion, turbulent combustion, and explosions and detonations. The book is dedicated to Yakov B. Zel'dovich, an eminent researcher known for his theoretical works on combustion and detonation, who served as the first Chairman of the Scientific Council of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. The first five papers give a perspective of the developments in flame theory, and the critical role that Zel'dovich played in them. The second section examines the issues of heterogeneous combustion and the recent advances in the field. The third section addresses material dealing with unsteady cellular combustion, and the fourth investigates turbulent combustion. The final section treats the subject of detonations and explosions.
