reference books on combustion
hi,people,could you recommend some good reference books and technical papers on two-phase reacting flow, especially on liquid oil spray combustion, and turbulence modeling for combustion? thank you.

Re: reference books on combustion
There is a good textbook by Prof.K.K.K.Kuo "Principles of Combustion"1986,John Wiley & Sons,(Chapter 8. combustion in two-phase flow systems, which covers the spray combustion)

Re: reference books on combustion
Hi, as Jhon said Kuo (principal of combustion) is one of the most interesting books.

A. H. Lefebvre, "Atomization and sprays" Hemisphere, New York,1989.

For papers there is :

G. M. Faeth, "Evaporation and Combustion of Sprays" Progress in combustion and science, Vol. 9, pp. 1-76, New York, 1983.
