Unsteady Combustion is divided into three parts: combustion-induced oscillations; internal combustion engines; and experimental techniques and modelling. Part 1 of the book deals with combustion instabilities, pulsed combustors, and active control of unsteady motions, and constitutes an excellent survey of the range of problems central to combustion instabilities. Internal combustion engines will undoubtedly be the prime movers in ground transportation for many years, if not decades to come. The major problems in practice are fuel efficiency and the emission of pollutants: all of the papers in Part 2 address these two problems. The third part of the book deals with quite general laser diagnostics and modelling aspects, including computer simulations which, while a young subject, hold out the promise of a long and important future.
