  • Fire Performance Analysis for Buildingsby Robert W. Fitzgerald; Brian J. Meacham

    Wiley 2017; US$ 140.00 US$ 121.33

    A building fire is dynamic. A continually changing hostile fire environment influences time relationships that affect fire defenses and risks to people and building functions. The fire and fire defenses in each building interact with different sequences and distinct ways. Risks are characterized by the building’s performance. Significantly... more...

  • Plasma Electrodynamicsby A. I. Akhiezer; I. A. Akhiezer; R. V. Polovin; D. Ter Haar

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 72.95

    Plasma Electrodynamics, Volume 1: Linear Theory is a seven-chapter book that begins with a description of the general methods of describing plasma, particularly, kinetic and hydrodynamic methods. Chapter 2 discusses the linear theory of magneto-hydrodynamic waves. Chapter 3 describes the non-linear magneto-hydrodynamic waves, both simple waves and... more...

  • Non-Linear Theory and Fluctuationsby A. I. Akhiezer; I. A. Akhiezer; R. V. Polovin

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 72.95

    Plasma Electrodynamics, Volume 2: Non-Linear Theory and Fluctuations deals with the theory of nonlinear waves in a collisionless plasma, including the quasilinear theory, the theory of plasma turbulence, and the theory of electromagnetic fluctuations in a plasma. Topics covered range from nonlinear high-frequency waves in a cold plasma to the theory... more...

  • Acoustics of the Seabed as a Poroelastic Mediumby Nicholas P. Chotiros

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 46.64

    This book presents a concise description of the acoustics of ocean sediment acoustics, including the latest developments that address the discrepancies between theoretical models and experimental measurements. This work should be of interest to ocean acoustic engineers and physicists, as well as graduate students and course instructors. The seabed... more...

  • Relativity Mattersby Johann Rafelski

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 75.93

    Rafelski presents Special Relativity in a language deemed accessible to students without any topical preparation - avoiding the burden of geometry, tensor calculus, and space-time symmetries ? and yet advancing in highly contemporary context all the way to research frontiers. Special Relativity is presented such that nothing remains a paradox or just... more...

  • Mechanics of Aeronautical Solids, Materials and Structuresby Christophe Bouvet

    Wiley 2017; US$ 125.00 US$ 108.33

    The objective of this work on the mechanics of aeronautical solids, materials and structures is to give an overview of the principles necessary for sizing of structures in the aeronautical field. It begins by introducing the classical notions of mechanics: stress, strain, behavior law, and sizing criteria, with an emphasis on the criteria specific... more...
