The term "heterogeneous" in this chapter is used loosely
to refer to systems in which there are two phases.
Under this classification, the subject of heterogeneous
combustion is so broad that it is impossible to cover
every aspect of it in this chapter. Therefore, only a
limited selection of topics will be discussed: liquid
droplet combustion, spray combustion, combustion of coal
and coal-slurry particle, and smoldering combustion. As
a reflection of the author's interest, emphasis will be
on liquid droplet combustion and combustion of coal and
coal-slurry particles. Discussions on other topics of
heterogeneous combustion (e.g., combustion of metal
particles, fixed-bed combustion, and fluidized-bed
combustion) will not be included because of the
voluminous amount of materials to be covered in this
