#### Molecular And Particle Modelling Of Laminar And Turbulent Flows

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 132.00Turbulence is the most fundamental and, simultaneously, the most complex form of fluid flow. However, because an understanding of turbulence requires an understanding of laminar flow, both are explored in this book. Groundwork is laid by careful delineation of the necessary physical, mathematical, and numerical requirements for the studies... more...

#### Nonlinear Hyperbolic Waves in Multidimensions

Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 164.95The propagation of curved, nonlinear wavefronts and shock fronts are very complex phenomena. Since the 1993 publication of his work Propagation of a Curved Shock and Nonlinear Ray Theory, author Phoolan Prasad and his research group have made significant advances in the underlying theory of these phenomena. This volume presents their results and provides... more...

#### Elasticity and Plasticity of Large Deformations

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 109.00This careful and detailed introduction to non-linear continuum mechanics and to elasticity and plasticity, with a unique mathematical foundation, starts right from the basics. It incorporates and provides introductions to tensor calculus and general continuum mechanics. more...

#### Elasticity of Transversely Isotropic Materials

Springer 2006; US$ 269.00Presents an analysis of problems of transversely isotropic materials that have applications in civil, mechanical, aerospace, materials processing and manufacturing engineering. This work also discusses the coupling effects of inner/outer fluids and surrounding elastic media on the free vibration of cylindrical and spherical shells. more...

#### Wave Propagation, Observation and Control in 1-d Flexible Multi-Structures

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 69.95Presents a detailed study of partial differential equations on planar graphs modeling networked flexible mechanical structures. Designed as a self-contained introductory course on control and observation of networks, this volume contains advanced topics and techniques which may be of interest for researchers in this area. more...

#### Probabilistic Methods In Fluids, Proceedings Of The Swansea 2002 Workshop

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 273.00This volume contains recent research papers presented at the international workshop on ?Probabilistic Methods in Fluids? held in Swansea. The central problems considered were turbulence and the Navier?Stokes equations but, as is now well known, these classical problems are deeply intertwined with modern studies of stochastic partial differential equations,... more...

#### Asymptotic Methods In Nonlinear Wave Phenomena

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 176.00This book brings together several contributions from leading experts in the field of nonlinear wave propagation. This field, which during the last three decades has seen important breakthroughs from the theoretical point of view, has recently acquired increased relevance due to advances in the technology of fluids e.g. at microscale or nanoscale and... more...

#### Frontiers In Turbulence And Coherent Structures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 339.00This book is based on the proceedings of the COSNet/CSIRO Workshop on Turbulence and Coherent Structures held at the Australian National University in Canberra in January 2006. It codifies recent developments in our understanding of the dynamics and statistical dynamics of turbulence and coherent structures in fluid mechanics, atmospheric and oceanic... more...
