Solid Flame Combustion (in Russian)
Chernogolovka: Izd. ISMAN, 2000, pp. 224, 27 tables, 116 figs., 409 refs.

In this book, scientific fundamentals of the solid flame combustion (SFC) are considered. Solid flame combustion is a specific type of the solid compounds combustion yielding solid products (materials). Some issues of the combustion phenomenology, mechanism and theory of steady and unsteady modes of wave propagation, effect of physical fields on the combustion processes, combustion chemistry, and structural macrokinetics are discussed. Some data on study of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) and its application in industrial-scale processes are presented.

The book can be interesting for research workers active in the field of chemical physics, macroscopic kinetics and combustion, materials science, and metallurgy, as well as for college teachers and engineers.
