Prior to this chapter, this book has focused on combustion between fuel and oxidizer in the gas phase. However, in many practical combustion processes the fuel starts as a liquid, or as a solid, which is then burnt by a gaseous oxidizer. Examples of the combustion of liquids include that in jet aircraft engines, Diesel engines, and oil fired furnaces. Examples of combustion of solids include that of coal, wood (in forest and building fires), plastics, and trash.
