Flows of Reactive FluidseBook - 2010
This work presents basic concepts and methods in heterogeneous and reactive flows in areas such as fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and chemistry. The book benefits students, researchers, and engineers wishing to investigate problems of reactive flows.
The modeling of reactive flows has progressed mainly with advances in aerospace, which gave birth to a new science called aerothermochemistry, as well as through developments in chemical and process engineering. This work examines basic concepts and methods necessary to study reactive flows and transfer phenomena in areas such as fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and chemistry. The book presents tools of interest to graduate students, researchers in mathematical physics, and engineers who wish to investigate problems of reactive flows. Portions of the text may be used in courses on the physics of liquids or in seminars on mechanics.
