This monograph focuses on the science of combustion, exploring its technological, social, and philosophical aspects. Presented here is a systematic overview of the field, with up-to-date treatments of topics of central importance: diffusion flames, deflagrations, detonations, flammability, and explosions. Special emphasis is given to turbulent combustion so that the many different approaches to this multifaceted subject can be exposed and categorized in a systematic manner. The author offers his projections for future developments, including identification of outstanding research areas. This book is a concise and penetrating overview of the field of combustion history and research, and will be of interest to motivated non-specialists interested in more than a facile exploration of the subject.

"May serve as a supplementary text in graduate courses on combustion or as a guide to future research pursuits for specialists in the field." --Mechanical Engineering Bookshelf "An overview of combustion science for a scientifically literate audience new to the field. Contains updated, revised material." --SciTech Book News "The authors are to be commended for their effect and success in presenting the intricate details of a highly interdisciplinary and complex subject to nonspecialists. The publisher has done a superb job of printing and reproducing illustrations. The table of contents and the subject index are well prepared....recommended for adoption as a supplementary text for a first-level graduate course in combustion or as an introductory guide for those interested in theoretical research in combustion science." --Applied Mechanics Review "A renewed appreciation of the basic underlying principles guiding the large diversity of combustion problems. I warmly recommend Fundamental Aspects of Combustion. You will enjoy both its enthusiasm and eruditeness.
