Combustion of Two-Phase Reactive Media addresses the complex phenomena involved in the burning of solid and liquid fuels. In fact, the multiplicity of phenomena characteristic of combustion of two-phase media determine the contents. The three parts deal with: the dynamics of a single particle; combustion wave propagation in two-phase reactive media; and thermal regimes of combustion reactors. The book generalizes the results of numerous investigations into the ignition and combustion of solid particles, droplets and bubbles, combustion wave propagation in heterogeneous reactive media, the stability of combustion of two-phase media, as well as the thermal regimes of high-temperature combustion reactors. It merges findings from the authors' investigations into problems of two-phase flows and material from graduate-level courses they teach at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.

I couldn't give you the faintest notion of what we talked about, for I really don't know. What I longed to ask, but couldn't very well, was about how often this dreary ceremony had got to be gone through. Will it have to be weekly, or monthly, do you suppose, in order to carry conviction to the mind of the Cambrian farmer? LETTER XXI July 4th. You complain of my silence; and I thought I had been exercising the most commendable self-control in refraininof from writing. "Why," I thought, "should I bore her with constant letters? Nothing happens to me; I have nothing fresh to tell; I have seen no one new; I have described the place and its neighbourhood. She can't be anxious about me; she knows I am never ill, and the amiable design to starve me out came to an end almost before I had realised its existence. If I write, I shall only write about myself and my own feelings, which is bad for me, and self-indulgent, and morbid, and I shall probably grumble, and very likely make her unhappy." So I refrained even from bad words, but I beg you to believe that it was pain and grief to me. Oh, Milly dear, I wish I hadn't written those last words, they'll shock you. I knew I should do something in bad taste like that, if I wrote in my present mood. But if I tear this up and begin again, I may say something worse, so let us compound for that, and proceed. It is a pity your demand for a letter has come just when my mood is dark, for I have been very tolerably calm and happy, for the1 most part, during the last few weeks. It is quite surprising to me, in looking back, to find how few fits of bitterness and depression I have had since I came to Wales, in spite...
This volume provides a comprehensive examination of key issues regarding global communication, focusing particularly on international news and strategic communication. It addresses those news factors that influence the newsworthiness of international events, providing a synthesis of both theoretical and practical studies that highlight the complicated nature of the international news selection process. It also deals with international news coverage, presenting research on the cross-national and cross-cultural nature of media coverage of global events, in the interdisciplinary context of research on political communication, war coverage, new technologies and online communication. The work concludes with a focus on global strategic communications: in the age of globalization, global economies and cross-national media ownership, chapters here provide readers with some of the most up-to-date research on international advertising, public relations and other key issues in international communications.
With contributions from many of the leading scholars in the field of international media communication research, this collection presents a valuable resource for advancing knowledge and understanding of the complicated international communication phenomenon. It will be of value to upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in mass media and communication programs, and to scholars whose research focuses on global communication research.
