- Chemistry : The science of matter, or of the electrical or electrostatical interactions of matter.
- Engineering : The profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to economically use the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind.
- Chemical engineering : The field of engineering that deals with industrial and natural processes involving the chemical, physical or biological transformation of matter or energy into forms useful for mankind, economically and safely without compromising the environment
- Air : A colorless, odorless and tasteless mixture of gases consisting mostly of nitrogen (N2) and oxygen (O2) which is the part of Earth's atmosphere that humans and all other animals breathe in order to obtain the oxygen needed to sustain life.
- Air-fuel ratio : Add brief definition or description
- Deflagration : Rapid, but not explosive (i.e., subsonic) self-sustaining combustion in explosive materials, especially low explosives such as black gunpowder and desensitized smokeless powder; the combustion wave propagates by thermal conduction; can produce explosion if confined but is more likely to produce controllable gases
- Fire : The rapid oxidation of a combustible material releasing heat, light, and various reaction products such as carbon dioxide and water.
- Flue gas : The gas that exits to the atmosphere via a flue which may be a pipe, channel or chimney for conveying combustion product gases from a fireplace, oven, furnace, boiler or steam generator.
- Flue gas desulfurization : The technology for removing sulfur dioxide from the flue gases resulting from the combustion of coal or fuel oil in power plant steam generators or other large combustion sources.
- Flue gas emissions from fossil fuel combustion : Discussion and listing of the comparative amounts of flue gas (exhaust gas) generated by the combustion of coal, fuel oil and natural gas.
- Flue gas stack : A vertical pipe, channel or chimney (also referred to as a smokestack) through which combustion product gases (flue gases) are exhausted to the atmosphere. Includes the draft (draught) effect of hot gases flowing through tall stacks (chimneys).
- Gas turbine : Add brief definition or description
- Heat of combustion : The energy released as heat when a substance undergoes complete combustion with oxygen.
- Industrial furnaces : Add brief definition or description
- Internal combustion engine : A device for generating mechanical energy from the combustion of a fuel and external oxygen
- Jet engine : A reaction engine that discharges a high velocity jet of fluid to generate thrust in accordance with Newton's laws of motion.
- Pyrolysis : Add brief definition or description
- Pyrophoric : Add brief definition or description
- Rocket engine : A means of generating thrust, for propulsion or for adjusting a position, based on the hot gases expelled by a mixture of chemicals that does not need an external oxygen source
- Staged combustion cycle (rocket) : Add brief definition or description
- Stoichiometry : Add brief definition or description
