About the Authors
  • A Gallery of Combustion and Fire is the first book to provide a graphical perspective of the extremely visual phenomenon of combustion in full color. It is designed primarily to be used in parallel with, and supplement existing combustion textbooks that are usually in black and white, making it a challenge to visualize such a graphic phenomenon. Each image includes a description of how it was generated, which is detailed enough for the expert but simple enough for the novice. Processes range from small scale academic flames up to full scale industrial flames under a wide range of conditions such as low and normal gravity, atmospheric to high pressures, actual and simulated flames, and controlled and uncontrolled flames. Containing over 500 color images, with over 230 contributors from over 75 organizations, this volume is a valuable asset for experts and novices alike.

    • Contains over 500 full-color images of all aspects of combustion including actual and simulated flames and fires
    • Includes low gravity, atmospheric, and pressurized flames relevant in space, industrial, and propulsion applications, respectively
    • Designed to supplement combustion textbooks

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This is an excellent and impressive collection of color photographs depicting combustion processes in various types of flames, fires and practical devices, and is intended to complement the resources in literature. The gallery is valuable to enthuse students and new researchers to combustion field, as well as to serve as pictorial diagnostics for experienced investigators. This book fills a long-standing void in combustion literature.' Subramanyam Gollahalli, University of Oklahoma

    ‘A Gallery of Combustion and Fire is the culmination of over a decade of efforts by the authors to collect and curate a voluminous selection of the most beautiful and captivating images of combustion in its many forms. The material presented in this book is both insightful and visually inspiring to the researcher and to the layperson alike. I enjoyed this book tremendously and congratulate the authors on a job well done.’ Nick Glumac, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
