Transport theory

  • Advances in Transport Phenomenaby Liqiu Wang

    Springer 2009; US$ 279.00

    This book details major advances by theoretical, numerical and experimental studies from a molecular, microscopic, mesoscopic or macroscopic point of view across the spectrum of transport phenomena, from scientific enquiries to practical applications. more...

  • Computational Methods in Transportby Frank Graziani

    Springer 2008; US$ 129.00

    The focus of this book deals with a cross cutting issue affecting all transport disciplines, whether it be photon, neutron, charged particle or neutrino transport. That is, verification and validation (V&V). In other words, are the equations being solved correctly and are the correct equations being solved? Verification and validation assures a scientist,... more...

  • Energy Localisation and Transferby Thierry Dauxois; Anna Litvak-Hinenzon; Robert MacKay; Anna Spanoudaki

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 251.00

    This 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...

  • Generalized Boltzmann Physical Kineticsby Boris V. Alexeev

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 210.00

    The most important result obtained by Prof. B. Alexeev and reflected in the book is connected with new theory of transport processes in gases, plasma and liquids. It was shown by Prof. B. Alexeev that well-known Boltzmann equation, which is the basement of the classical kinetic theory, is wrong in the definite sense. Namely in the Boltzmann equation... more...

  • Interfacial Transport Phenomenaby John C. Slattery; Leonard Sagis; Eun-Suok Oh

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 269.00

    Gives a presentation of transport phenomena or continuum mechanics focused on momentum, energy, and mass transfer at interfaces. This work includes a discussion of transport phenomena at common lines or three-phase lines of contact, and a theory for the extension of continuum mechanics to the nanoscale region immediately adjacent to the interface. more...

  • An Introduction to the Boltzmann Equation and Transport Processes in Gasesby Gilberto M. Kremer

    Springer 2010; US$ 149.00

    This book deals with the classical kinetic theory of gases. Its aim is to present the basic principles of this theory within an elementary framework and from a more rigorous approach based on the Boltzmann equation. The subjects are presented in a self-contained manner such that the readers can understand and learn some methods used in the kinetic... more...

  • Lecture Notes on Mathematical Theory of the Boltzmann Equationby Nicola Bellomo

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 152.00

    This is a collection of four lectures on some mathematical aspects related to the nonlinear Boltzmann equation. The following topics are dealt with: derivation of kinetic equations, qualitative analysis of the initial value problem, singular perturbation analysis towards the hydrodynamic limit and computational methods towards the solution of problems... more...

  • Multicomponent Interfacial Transportby Kirill Glavatskiy

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    A thermodynamically consistent description of the transport across interfaces in mixtures has for a long time been an open issue. This research clarifies that the interface between a liquid and a vapor in a mixture is in local equilibrium during evaporation and condensation. It implies that the thermodynamics developed for interfaces by Gibbs can be... more...

  • Numerical Methods in Multidimensional Radiative Transferby Erik Meinköhn; Rolf Rannacher

    Springer 2008; US$ 179.00

    Offers an overview of the numerical modelling of radiation fields in multidimensional geometries. This book covers advances and problems in the mathematical treatment of the radiative transfer equation, a partial integro-differential equation of high dimension that describes the propagation of the radiation in various fields. more...

  • Porous Mediaby F. A.L. Dullien; Howard Brenner

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    This 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...
