Download Fundamentals of Combustion by Joseph M. Powers, The goal of the notes is to provide a solid mathematical foundation in the physical chemistry, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics of combustion. The notes commit to fill gaps in the existing literature in providing increased discussion of detailed kinetics models which are in common use for real physical systems.
