#### Transport Phenomena in Porous Media

Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 230.00Research into thermal convection in porous media has substantially increased during recent years due to its numerous practical applications. These problems have attracted the attention of industrialists, engineers and scientists from many very diversified disciplines, such as applied mathematics, chemical, civil, environmental, mechanical and nuclear... more...

#### Quantum Transport Calculations for Nanosystems

Pan Stanford Publishing 2014; US$ 149.95As electric devices become smaller and smaller, transport simulations based on the quantum mechanics become more and more important. There are currently numerous textbooks on the basic concepts of quantum transport, but few present calculation methods in detail. This book provides various quantum transport simulation methods and shows applications... more...

#### Energy Localisation and Transfer

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 154.00This book provides an introduction to localised excitations in spatially discrete systems, from the experimental, numerical and mathematical points of view. Also known as discrete breathers, nonlinear lattice excitations and intrinsic localised modes, these are spatially localised time periodic motions in networks of dynamical units. Examples of such... more...

#### Thermodynamics of Flowing Systems

Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 329.99This much-needed monograph presents a systematic, step-by-step approach to the continuum modeling of flow phenomena exhibited within materials endowed with a complex internal microstructure, such as polymers and liquid crystals. By combining the principles of Hamiltonian mechanics with those of irreversible thermodynamics, Antony N. Beris and Brian... more...

#### Scaling Analysis in Modeling Transport and Reaction Processes

Wiley 2007; US$ 165.00This book is unique as the first effort to expound on the subject of systematic scaling analysis. Not written for a specific discipline, the book targets any reader interested in transport phenomena and reaction processes. The book is logically divided into chapters on the use of systematic scaling analysis in fluid dynamics, heat transfer, mass transfer,... more...

#### Multicomponent Interfacial Transport

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; Not AvailableThis excellent and novel scientific work has given an area of key research a significant step forward. The systematic documentation of the approach to describing phase transitions will facilitate further applications of the theory to important problems. more...

#### Porous Media

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95This book examines the relationship between transport properties and pore structure of porous material. Models of pore structure are presented with a discussion of how such models can be used to predict the transport properties of porous media. Portions of the book are devoted to interpretations of experimental results in this area and directions for... more...

#### Dispersive Transport Equations and Multiscale Models

Springer New York 2012; US$ 99.00IMA Volumes 135: Transport in Transition Regimes and 136: Dispersive Transport Equations and Multiscale Models focus on the modeling of processes for which transport is one of the most complicated components. This includes processes that involve a wdie range of length scales over different spatio-temporal regions of the problem, ranging from the... more...

#### Interfacial Transport Phenomena

Springer US 2007; Not AvailableTransport phenomena is used here to describe momentuin, energy, mass, and entropy transfer [1, 2]. It includes thermodynamics, a special case of which is thermosiaiics. Interfacial transport phenomena refers to momentum, energy, mass, and entropy transfer within the immediate neighborhood of a phase interface, including the thermodynamics of the interface.... more...

#### Numerical Methods in Multidimensional Radiative Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; Not AvailableTraditionally, radiative transfer has been the domain of astrophysicists and climatologists. In nuclear technology one has been dealing with the ana- gous equations of neutron transport. In recent years, applications of radiative transferincombustionmachinedesignandinmedicinebecamemoreandmore important. In all these disciplines one uses the radiative... more...
