An Introduction to Combustion with Applications Using Cantera

Created with first-year graduate students and entry-level engineers in mind, this book opens the door to understanding the principles and practices of combustion calculations. The book integrates combustion with the open-source software Cantera, used for solving problems involving chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and transport processes. It serves as an invaluable primer for this software, offering a step-by-step guide to its installation and application, supplemented with numerous examples interwoven throughout the chapters. This hands-on approach provides real-world context to the theoretical knowledge and empowers readers to apply learned concepts practically.

Ideal for novices in the field, this book also offers value to experts seeking an accessible reference or a guide for using Cantera software. So, whether you're a student, an engineer, or a researcher, this book is your springboard into the vast and dynamic field of combustion science.
