Environmental, cost, and fuel consumption issues add further complexity, particularly in the process and power generation industries. Dedicated to advancing the art and science of industrial combustion, The John Zink Hamworthy Combustion Handbook, Second Edition: Volume One – Fundamentals gives you a strong understanding of the basic concepts and theory.Under the leadership of Charles E. Baukal, Jr., top combustion engineers and technologists from John Zink Hamworthy Combustion examine the interdisciplinary fundamentals—including chemistry, fluid flow, and heat transfer—as they apply to industrial combustion.What’s New in This EditionExpanded to three volumes, with Volume One focusing on fundamentalsExtensive updates and revisions throughoutUpdated information on HPI/CPI industries, including alternative fuels, advanced refining techniques, emissions standards, and new technologiesExpanded coverage of the physical and chemical principles of combustionNew practices in coal combustion, such as gasificationThe latest developments in cold-flow modeling, CFD-based modeling, and mathematical modelingGreater coverage of pollution emissions and NOx reduction techniquesNew material on combustion diagnostics, testing, and trainingMore property data useful for the design and operation of combustion equipmentCoverage of technologies such as metallurgy, refractories, blowers, and vapor control equipmentNow expanded to three volumes, the second edition of the bestselling The John Zink Combustion Handbook continues to provide the comprehensive coverage, up-to-date information, and visual presentation that made the first edition an industry standard. Featuring color illustrations and photographs throughout, Volume One: Fundamentals helps you broaden your understanding of industrial combustion to better meet the challenges of this field.For the other volumes in the set, see The John Zink Hamworthy Combustion Handbook, Second Edition: Three-Volume Set.
