#### Continuum Thermomechanics

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 65.31The general goal of this book is to deduce rigorously, from thefirst principles, the partial differential equations governing thethermodynamic processes undergone by continuum media under forcesand heat. Solids and fluids are considered in a unified framework.Reacting mixtures of fluids are also included for which generalnotions of thermodynamics... more...

#### Entropy Demystified

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 38.00In this unique book, Arieh Ben-Naim invites the reader to experience the joy of appreciating something which has eluded understanding for many years — entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The book has a two-pronged message: first, that the Second Law is not “infinitely incomprehensible” as commonly stated in textbooks of thermodynamics... more...

#### Thermodynamic Equilibria and Extrema

Springer New York 2006; US$ 119.75This book discusses mathematical models that are based on the concepts of classical equilibrium thermodynamics. These are intended for the analysis of possible results of diverse natural and production processes. Unlike traditional models, these allow readers to view the achievable set of partial equilibria with regards to constraints on kinetics,... more...

#### Free Convection Film Flows and Heat Transfer

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 152.41This book presents recent developments in systematic studies of hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer in laminar free convection, accelerating film boiling and condensation of Newtonian fluids, as well as accelerating film flow of non-Newtonian power-law fluids (FFNF). A novel system of analysis models is provided with a developed velocity component... more...

#### Interfacial Convection in Multilayer Systems

Springer New York 2006; US$ 88.06This book contains a systematic investigation of the convection in systems with interfaces. For the first time, it classifies all of the known types of convective instabilities in such systems, and discusses the peculiarities of multilayer systems. The book provides an overview of the wide variety of steady and oscillatory patterns, waves, and other... more...

#### Molecular Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomena

McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 165.00 US$ 144.38Many newly developing fields of science and engineering, including nanotechnology, protein engineering, microfluidics, etc., require an in-depth molecular understanding and description of matter. Molecular Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomena: Complexities of Scales in Space and Time provides a rigorous molecular and statistical mechanical basis... more...

#### The Art of Cryogenics

Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 255.00Cryogenics is the study of low temperature interactions - temperatures well below those existing in the natural universe. The book covers a large spectrum of experimental cases, including basic vacuum techniques, indispensable in cryogenics. Guidance in solving experimental problems and numerous numerical examples are given, as are examples of the... more...

#### Convective Heat Transfer

Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 285.00Interest in studying the phenomena of convective heat and mass transfer between an ambient fluid and a body which is immersed in it stems both from fundamental considerations, such as the development of better insights into the nature of the underlying physical processes which take place, and from practical considerations, such as the fact that these... more...

#### Statistical Mechanics of Nonequilibrium Liquids

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 46.00 US$ 37.72Graduate-level book on the analysis of molecular dynamics as applied to equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems. more...
