  • DESider ? A European Effort on Hybrid RANS-LES Modellingby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 399.00

    Preface ?In aircraft design, efficiency is determined by the ability to accurately and rel- bly predict the occurrence of, and to model the development of, turbulent flows. Hence, the main objective in industrial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is to increase the capabilities for an improved predictive accuracy for both complex flows and complex... more...

  • Flow Boiling in Microgap Channelsby Tamanna Alam; Poh Seng Lee; Li-Wen Jin

    Springer 2013; US$ 54.99

    Flow Boiling in Microgap Channels: Experiment, Visualization and Analysis presents an up-to-date summary of the details of the confined to unconfined flow boiling transition criteria, flow boiling heat transfer and pressure drop characteristics, instability characteristics, two phase flow pattern and flow regime map and the parametric study of microgap... more...

  • Theory of Concentrated Vorticesby S. V. Alekseenko; P.A. Kuibin; V. L. Okulov

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 239.00

    Vortex motion is one of the basic states of a flowing continuum. Intere- ingly, in many cases vorticity is space-localized, generating concentrated vortices. Vortex filaments having extremely diverse dynamics are the most characteristic examples of such vortices. Notable examples, in particular, include such phenomena as self-inducted motion, various... more...
