  • 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-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$ 279.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Computational Contact Mechanicsby Peter Wriggers; Tod A. Laursen

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    Topics of this book span the range from spatial and temporal discretization techniques for contact and impact problems with small and finite deformations over investigations on the reliability of micromechanical contact models over emerging techniques for rolling contact mechanics to homogenization methods and multi-scale approaches in contact problems.... 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...

  • III European Conference on Computational Mechanicsby Jorge A. C. Ambrosio; J. Folgado; J. A. C. Martins

    Springer 2008; US$ 289.00

    Contains the edited version of the Abstracts of Plenary and Keynote Lectures and Papers, and a companion CD-ROM with the full-length papers, presented at the III European Conference on Computational Mechanics: Solids, Structures and Coupled Problems in Engineering (ECCM-2006). This book includes contributions by active researchers in this field. more...

  • Fundamentals of Fluid-Solid Interactionsby Xiaodong (Sheldon) Wang

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 170.00

    This book focuses on the computational and theoretical approaches to the coupling of fluid mechanics and solids mechanics. In particular, nonlinear dynamical systems are introduced to the handling of complex fluid-solid interaction systems, For the past few decades, many terminologies have been introduced to this field, namely, flow-induced vibration,... more...

  • De buik beter in beeldby Jaap Stoker

    Amsterdam University Press 2005; US$ 10.50
