  • Macroscopic Transport Equations for Rarefied Gas Flowsby Henning Struchtrup

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 99.00

    The well known transport laws of Navier-Stokes and Fourier fail for the simulation of processes on lengthscales in the order of the mean free path of a particle that is when the Knudsen number is not small enough. Thus, the proper simulation of flows in rarefied gases requires a more detailed description. This book discusses classical and modern... more...

  • Hydrodynamics and Soundby M. S. Howe

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 60.00 US$ 49.20

    This book is ideal as a graduate textbook and reference for the advanced learner in fluid mechanics. more...

  • Pendulumby Amir D. Aczel

    Atria Books 2007; US$ 19.95

    In 1851, struggling, self-taught physicist Léon Foucault performed a dramatic demonstration inside the Panthéon in Paris. By tracking a pendulum's path as it swung repeatedly across the interior of the large ceremonial hall, Foucault offered the first definitive proof -- before an audience that comprised the cream of Parisian society, including the... more...

  • Wave Mechanics for Ocean Engineeringby Paolo Boccotti

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 290.00

    In a unitary way, this monograph deals with a wide range of subjects related to the mechanics of sea waves. The book highlights recent theoretical results on the dynamics of random wind-generated waves, on long-term wave statistics, and on beach planform evolution. A fresh approach is given to more traditional concepts. For example, new evidence from... more...

  • Gas Tables by S.M. Yahya

    New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2006; US$ 20.00

    The subject of compressible flow or gas dynamics deals with the thermo-fluid dynamic problems of gases and vapours. It is now an important part of the undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. Fundamentals of Compressible Flow covers this subject in fourteen well organised chapters in a lucid style. A large mass of theoretical material and equations... more...

  • The Detonation Phenomenonby John H. S. Lee

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 60.00 US$ 49.20

    This book introduces the detonation phenomenon for engineers with a background in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. more...

  • Panofsky on Physics, Politics, and Peaceby Wolfgang K.H. Panofsky; Jean Deken

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 79.99

    This volume contains an ?unsystematic account? of my past work; it is not intended to be an autobiography in the conventional meaning of the term. It is not even remotely a scholarly description of the momentous devel- ments in which I was able to participate; rather it is a recital of ?memorable? episodes, borrowing from the ?compulsory preface? of... more...

  • Fragmentation of Rings and Shellsby Dennis Grady

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 269.00

    For a brief period during the latter part of World War II, Nevill F. Mott led a theoretical group at Fort Halstead in the United Kingdom that tackled scientific issues related to pressing war-time concerns. Among later awards and honors, Mott was knighted and a recipient of the Nobel Prize. While at Fort Halstead, he undertook an effort to theoretically... more...

  • The Scientific Legacy of Beppo Occhialiniby Pietro Redondi; Giorgio Sironi; Pascuale Tucci; Guido Vegni

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 119.00

    The present volume is a collection of reviews, essays and personal reminiscences on Occhialini's scientific life and work. Through these recollections the reader will also gain a vivid impression of the pioneering days of elementary particle physics when new detection methods emerged, like the triggered cloud chamber and nuclear emulsions - two... more...
