  • Small-Scale Gas to Liquid Fuel Synthesisby Nick Kanellopoulos

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 169.95

    Aimed at overcoming significant costs and technical barriers prohibitive to the extensive use of conventional gas-to-liquid (GTL) processes for the exploitation of small and/or isolated natural gas reservoirs, the next-generation GTL technologies presented in this text reduce the expenses associated with air fractioning and syngas production. Showcasing... more...

  • The Foundations of Mathematicsby Ian Stewart; David Tall

    Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 23.99

    The transition from school mathematics to university mathematics is seldom straightforward. Students are faced with a disconnect between the algorithmic and informal attitude to mathematics at school, versus a new emphasis on proof, based on logic, and a more abstract development of general concepts, based on set theory. The authors have many years'... more...

  • Inelastic Behavior of Materials and Structures Under Monotonic and Cyclic Loadingby Holm Altenbach; Michael Brünig

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This book presents studies on the inelastic behavior of materials and structures under monotonic and cyclic loads. It focuses on the description of new effects like purely thermal cycles or cases of non-trivial damages. The various models are based on different approaches and methods and scaling aspects are taken into account. In addition to purely... more...

  • A Primer on the Geometry of Carbon Nanotubes and Their Modificationsby Sadegh Imani Yengejeh; Seyedeh Alieh Kazemi; Andreas Öchsner

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99

    This volume presents a comprehensive system for categorizing carbon nanotubes and their modifications in terms of nano sheets, nanotubes, microscopic and atomic modifications. In addition, the material and geometric properties of these nano-configurations are addressed. Lastly, it introduces a number of common software packages for geometry generation... more...

  • Fluid Mechanics of Viscoplasticityby Raja R. Huilgol

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 129.00

    In this book, we shall consider the kinematics and dynamics of the flows of fluids exhibiting a yield stress. To highlight the principal characteristics of such fluids, the first chapter emphasizes the role played by the yield stress. Next, a careful description of the continuum mechanics behind the constitutive equations for incompressible and compressible... more...

  • Liquid Explosivesby Jiping Liu

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 179.00

    The book drawing on the author?s nearly half a century of energetic materials research experience intends to systematically review the global researches on liquid explosives. The book focuses on the study of the conception, explosion mechanism, properties and preparation of liquid explosives. It provides a combination of theoretical knowledge and... more...

  • Damage Growth in Aerospace Compositesby Aniello Riccio

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    Providing a state-of-the-art evaluation of key European research projects in the field, this book presents the latest and most advanced numerical approaches to simulating damage evolution in aerospace composites, including non-destructive methodologies. more...

  • Basics of Aerothermodynamicsby Ernst Heinrich Hirschel

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00

    This successful book gives an introduction to the basics of aerothermodynamics, as applied in particular to winged re-entry vehicles and airbreathing hypersonic cruise and acceleration vehicles. The book gives a review of the issues of transport of momentum, energy and mass, real-gas effects as well as inviscid and viscous flow phenomena. In this... more...

  • Instability and Control of Massively Separated Flowsby Vassilis Theofilis; Julio Soria

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00

    This book contains the outcome of the international meeting on instability, control and noise generated by massive flow separation that was organized at the Monash Center, in Prato, Italy, September 4-6, 2013. The meeting served as the final review of the EU-FP7 Instability and Control of Massively Separated Flows Marie Curie travel grant and was... more...

  • Auxetic Materials and Structuresby Teik-Cheng Lim

    Springer Singapore 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book lays down the foundation on the mechanics and design of auxetic solids and structures, solids that possess negative Poisson?s ratio. It will benefit two groups of readers: (a) industry practitioners, such as product and structural designers, who need to control mechanical stress distributions using auxetic materials, and (b) academic researchers... more...
