Item description for Theoretical and Numerical Combustion, Second Edition by Thierry Poinsot & Denis Veynante...
Presents basic techniques and recent progress in numerical combustion while establishing important connections with the underlying combustion basics. Fully updated to reflect the latest advances in combustion research. Mirrors evolution of unsteady simulation methods such as LES codes for partially premixed flames and complex geometry burners. Includes extended descriptions of wave equations in reacting flows, physics of combustion instabilities, acoustic/combustion coupling; and a new chapter devoted to LES in real combustors, including comparisons with experimental data.

Reviews - What do customers think about Theoretical and Numerical Combustion, Second Edition?
Very good book Mar 5, 2004
Two experts on combustion share the knowledge and break difficult issuses down to provide a deep understanding of the phenomena. I would recomend it as text and reference book to anyone with basic knowledge in fluid dynamics. Only drawback: It won't tell you which turbulent combustion model to use in which application.
Landmark text on modern Combustion Feb 7, 2004
Written by 2 combustion experts from Ecole Centrale Paris (one of the top engineering schools of France and I'd say of the world). These two scientist work on the open field of numerical modeling of reacting, turbulent flows.
These guys know what they are doing, not only get the math right but also are exposed to a great deal of experimental research carried on at Ecole Centrale. This is extremely important: they are able to validate their models and do not just produce numerical computations.
