By W. Sirignano, A. Merzhanov, L. De Luca

Authored by means of the most prestigious foreign researchers, this e-book includes 21 papers that tackle 5 common catagories of combustion technological know-how: flame conception, heterogeneous combustion, unsteady and mobile combustion, turbulent combustion, and explosions and detonations. The e-book is devoted to Yakov B. Zel'dovich, an eminent researcher recognized for his theoretical works on combustion and detonation, who served because the first Chairman of the clinical Council of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. the 1st 5 papers provide a viewpoint of the advancements in flame thought, and the severe function that Zel'dovich performed in them. the second one part examines the problems of heterogeneous combustion and the hot advances within the box. The 3rd part addresses fabric facing unsteady mobile combustion, and the fourth investigates turbulent combustion. the ultimate part treats the topic of detonations and explosions.

A. Frank-Kamenetskii and A. G. Merzhanov, among others. Fully cognizant of this work, Zel'dovich addressed one of the most difficult ignition problems of all7'8 namely, ignition by a hot isothermal surface. This problem involves intricacies of asymptotic analysis not encountered in other ignition problems, ultimately leading from partial differential equations to an integral equation. The first paper by Zel'dovich on this subject7 is also one of the first applications of asymptotic methods in the scientific literature.
