Combustion Information

Does anyone know I good combustion text, or better yet a seminar or course somewhere that focuses on ceramics?  

RE: Combustion Information

Do you want combustion, kiln/furnaces, refractories, sintering...?

For general combustion, 3 well-known references:
Combustion, 3rd edition (December 1996)
by Irvin Glassman
Hardcover, 631 pages, Academic Press, ISBN: 0122858522

North American Combustion Handbook, 3rd edn.
(supposed to be very good for natural gas-fired equipment)

The John Zink Combustion Handbook

For the other subjects, start with the American Ceramic Society bookstore: http://www.ceramics.org/publications/books/mainmenu.asp
E.g., for sintering:
Sintering Theory and Practice
by Randall M. German. see details at

RE: Combustion Information

I remember a few summers ago there was a combustion course offered to my boss (while i was still a student).  I believe it was at Clemson Univ, in the USA.  They have a big brick research facility there.

look into that, if it's not there I will find out more.

RE: Combustion Information

Babcock & Wilcox offers some good courses in Akron OH:


B&W also issue a book called "Steam".  It is in its 40th edition.  It is a solid reference book for combustion and power plants in general.
