Abstract : The publication presents the proceedings of the Thirteenth Symposium (International) on Combustion which was held at the University of Utah at Salt Lake City, Utah, 23-29 August 1970. 110 edited papers presented at the meeting by prominent combustion scientists and engineers from 19 countries are included encompassing major advances in both fundamental and applied technology in the areas of combustion and flame phenomena, as well as application of combustion with emphasis on fire hazards and pollution. Topics included studies of kinetics of elementary chemical reactions, chemical kinetics in shock tubes, hydrocarbon oxidation and combustion, chemi-ionization and electrical properties of flames, air pollution, engine combustion and emissions, oscillatory (unstable) combustion and emissions, oscillatory (unstable) combustion, laminar and turbulent flame propagation, flame structure, mechanisms of ignition and quenching, metal particle combustion, solid organic materiel combustion, solid propellant combustion, and fire spread.
