COMBUSTION OF HEAVY LIQUID FUELS

The book is intended for the engineers working in the field of liquid-fuel combustion control and also for advance students in related courses of study. The fundamental laws governing liquid-fuel atomization and combustion are discussed and optimal combustion conditions are analyzed. The combustion characteristics of individual fuel droplets, as functions of the external conditions and fuel properties, the droplet combustion process in a flame length and the quality of atomization are examined. In addition, atomization quality is covered, and nozzle systems and the construction of nozzles are analyzed, Methods of designing centrifugal and pneumatic nozzles, and methods of controlling atomization fineness and the quality of the combustion process are also offered.(Author)
