Mechanics of engineering. Applied mechanics

Most popular at the top

  • Modelling of Mechanical Systemsby Francois Axisa

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 240.00

    This first volume is concerned with discrete systems ? the study of which constitutes the cornerstone of all mechanical systems, linear or non-linear. It covers the formulation of equations of motion and the systematic study of free and forced vibrations. The book goes into detail about subjects such as generalized coordinates and kinematical conditions;... more...

  • Fluid Dynamics with a Computational Perspectiveby Paul A. Durbin; Gorazd Medic

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 40.00

    This book, first published in 2008, provides a development of fluid flow theory and how computations are formulated and effected. more...

  • Computational Contact Mechanicsby Peter Wriggers

    Springer 2006; US$ 129.00

    Provides the necessary continuum mechanics background which includes the derivation of the contact constraints. This book discusses constitutive equations stemming from tribology which are valid at the contact interface. It is written for graduate, Masters and PhD students, but also for engineers in industry. more...

  • Stability and Convergence of Mechanical Systems with Unilateral Constraintsby Remco I. Leine; Nathan van de Wouw

    Springer 2007; US$ 179.00

    Stability of motion is a central theme in the dynamics of mechanical systems. While the stability theory for systems with bilateral constraints is a well-established field, this monograph represents a systematic study of mechanical systems with unilateral constraints, such as unilateral contact, impact and friction. Such unilateral constraints give... more...

  • Optimization and Computational Fluid Dynamicsby Dominique Thevenin; Gabor Janiga

    Springer 2008; US$ 149.00

    The numerical optimization of practical applications is an issue of growing importance in research and industry. It allows both the exploration of non-trivial configurations differing widely from all known solutions and the step-by-step improvement of existing designs. The purpose of this book is to introduce the state of the art concerning this issue,... more...

  • Particle Image Velocimetryby Andreas Schroder; Christian E. Willert

    Springer 2008; US$ 349.00

    Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is a non-intrusive optical measurement technique which allows capturing several thousand velocity vectors within large flow fields instantaneously. Today, the PIV technique has spread widely and differentiated into many distinct applications, from micro flows over combustion to supersonic flows for both industrial needs... more...

  • Particle-laden Flowby B.J. Geurts; H. Clercx; Wim S.J. Uijttewaal

    Springer 2007; US$ 239.00

    The dispersion of particles in a flow is of central importance in various geophysical and environmental problems. The spreading of aerosols and soot in the air, the growth and dispersion of plankton blooms in seas and oceans, or the transport of sediment in rivers, estuaries and coastal regions are striking examples. These problems are characterized... more...

  • Engineering Fluid Mechanicsby Hiroshi Yamaguchi

    Springer 2008; US$ 239.00

    This book is intended to serve as a unique and comprehensive textbook for scientists and engineers as well as advanced students in thermo-fluid courses. It provides an intensive monograph essential for understanding dynamics of ideal fluid, Newtonian fluid, non-Newtonian fluid and magnetic fluid. These distinct, yet intertwined subjects are addressed... more...

  • Solving Engineering System Dynamics Problems with MATLABby Rao V. Dukkipati

    New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2007; US$ 35.00

    Solving Engineering System Dynamics Problems with MATLAB book is designed as an introductory undergraduate course for engineering students of all disciplines. Engineering system dynamics is a multidisciplinary subject and presents a system dynamics methodology based on mathematical fundamentals and stresses physical system modeling. The classical methods... more...

  • Fluid Dynamics of Cavitation and Cavitating Turbopumpsby Luca D'Agostino; Maria Vittoria Salvetti

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    The book focuses on the fluid dynamics of cavitation with special reference to high power density turbopumps, where it represents the major source of performance and life degradation and often generates the conditions for the onset of dangerous fluid dynamic instabilities. To this purpose the first part of the book covers the more fundamental aspects... more...
