Introduction to Combustion Textbook Recommendation

  1. Feb 16, 2014 #1
    Hello

    I am interested in self-teaching basic combustion concepts. Is there a good textbook available that introduces combustion at an undergraduate level for someone with high school chemistry knowledge?

    Thanks very much

    I think this is currently the best book on combustion available: C.K. Law - Combustion Physics
    https://www.amazon.com/Combustion-Physics-Chung-K-Law/dp/0521154219

    But it is a shared first place with the book from Kenneth Kuo:
    https://www.amazon.com/Principles-Combustion-Kenneth-Kuan-yun-Kuo/dp/0471046892

    A book with slightly less mathematics is the book from Warnatz, Maas and Dibble:
    https://www.amazon.com/Combustion-Fundamentals-Simulation-Experiments-Pollutant/dp/3540259929

    A more theoretical book is the book of F.A. Williams - Combustion Theory
    https://www.amazon.com/Combustion-Theory-Edition-Science-Engineering/dp/0201407779

    Hi

    Thanks for the recommendation. I am currently looking at Introduction to Combustion by Stephen R. Turns, if you know of it, how does it compare with the ones recommended above?

    Thanks
