4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book (Ahmed Al Makky), 12 Nov. 2009
Mr. Ahmed Al Makky (uk) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
its an excellent book, it needs to be organized a bit in chapter content because as the reader will find out,that he is referred to other chapters during the reading (so you be finding your self jumping from one chapter to another). Its an advanced book and for a beginner its not advisable to read from. Even for an intermediate it might be difficult. The book is rich with information. The reader should have advanced knowledge in combustion and also a good back ground in computational fluid dynamics field. The book seemed to favor the LES method for its given examples. The books interest was most focused on low Mach number combustion, so density change issues were not focused on.The issue of radiation has not been taken into account and was not allocated a chapter. A chapter on combustion acoustics is a useful one especially for those interested in studying combustion stabilities. If the reader has read a large sum of research papers (related to combustion) the material in the the book can give the reader a systematic way of looking to the field and that will help him in organizing his material and thoughts. I hope that was helpful.
