  • Radiative Heat Transfer in Turbulent Combustion Systemsby Michael F Modest; Daniel C. Haworth

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 54.99

    This introduction reviews why combustion and radiation are important, as well as the technical challenges posed by radiation. Emphasis is on interactions among turbulence, chemistry and radiation (turbulence-chemistry-radiation interactions ? TCRI) in Reynolds-averaged and large-eddy simulations. Subsequent chapters cover: chemically reacting turbulent... more...

  • Mechanothermodynamicsby Leonid Sosnovskiy; Sergei Sherbakov

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 99.00

    This monograph addresses the foundations of mechanothermodynamics and analyzes two of its key principles?damage of everything that exists has no conceivable limits, and effective energy (entropy) flows caused by loads of a different nature do not have a cumulative property; they interact dialectically. The authors examine a generalized model of energy... more...
