Hello to all,

Could the forum members suggest some good books books on theoretical and computational combustion, both introductory and advanced. In particular, I am interested for a few books for the seasoned Fluids/CFD analyst who wishes to get into combustion.

Best regards Achilles Vassilicos

One good theoretical text is "An Introduction to Combustion" by Stephen R. Turns. Quite readable and easy to follow.

There's also the excellent book of Poinsot et al. I'm not sure I have the exact title but it should be "Theoretical and Numerical Combustion"... I'm only sure of the author and I don't have the ref with me. but the book is good.
