Chapter 3 is on turbulent flames arising when the fuel and oxidant gases are admitted into the combustor separately, ie, diffusion flames. In these flames, whose characteristics are independent of the very fast chemistry, all scalars such as temperature, species concentrations, and density are uniquely related to a conserved scalar known as the mixture fraction. This is illustrated for the: classical problem of Burke and Schumann; candle flame; counterflow diffusion flame; and one-dimensional unsteady laminar mixing layer.
Here, too, a map is presented to show the different conditions pertaining to the mixture fraction distribution, its root mean square fluctuation and the scalar dissipation rate which would result in flames that are either contiguous reaction zones or separated flamelets.
The mixture fraction distribution is obtained in a model for a turbulent jet diffusion flame. A one-page-long discussion of the length of a buoyant turbulent gas jet diffusion flame seems to serve a purpose none other than simply interrupting the important exposition on the mixture fraction distribution. Experimental measurements of composition and temperature as functions of the mixture fraction are presented.
The chapter is concluded with modeling of laminar and turbulent flamelets, predictions of reactive scalar fields for pollutant formation, and quick surveys of modeling gas turbine combustion, burners and diesel engines. Chapter 4, the shortest and most qualitative one in this book, is on turbulent combustion of partially premixed gases.
Here alone, and quite passingly, liquid fuel vaporization and combustion is mentioned. Another situation in which the mixture is partially premixed arises in the lift-off and stabilization at the lift-off height of turbulent jet diffusion flames.
LES of turbulent combustion: on the consistency between flame and flow filter scales
Combustion in these mixtures of nonuniform composition poses special practical, modeling and computational challenges. This chapter is, in the main, made up of the topics of: triple flames in ignition and stabilization of lifted turbulent jet diffusion flames; scaling and numerical simulation of lift-off heights; and modeling turbulent flame propagation in mixtures of nonhomogeneous mixtures. The coverage on these topics seems to be done in strokes of a rather broader brush, briefer, and mathematically less detailed than that on other topics in the earlier chapters. The unavailability of a nomenclature makes reading of this book a bit difficult.

Topical indexing is less than adequate. This book probably will have only a limited use as an advanced graduate textbook, for it does not appear quite helpful for someone seeking freshly to be introduced to the science of gas flames.

The scope and level of its contents make it an excellent repository of important developments in a difficult topical area. Every library must have a copy of it. People who are deeply involved in studying turbulent combustion of gases, and those who already know the material fairly well will enjoy and benefit from it.
Having said all the good things and some minor not-so-good things about it, this reviewer believes that Turbulent Combustion will probably be counted among the most significant steps of progress in turbulence—progress for which Feynman so fondly longed. It will serve as a thorough, ready, and reliable reference for all combustion experts and modelers.
