Shock Focusing Phenomena

Shock Focusing Phenomena

Author: Nicholas Apazidis, Veronica Eliasson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/01/2019

One of the main reasons for continuing interest in shock focusing is its ability to concentrate energy in a small volume and produce extreme temperatures and pressures in fluids in a controlled laboratory environment. The phenomenon of shock wave focusing leading to extreme conditions in fluids during micro- and nanosecond time intervals is a spectacular example of mechanics at small length and time scales revealing the major properties of shock dynamics including high-temperature gas phenomena. Production of high-energy concentrations in gases and fluids with star-like temperatures and extreme pressures by means of a stable imploding shock is of great interest not only in its own right but also because of the connection to a multitude of phenomena in nature, technology and medicine.

Approaches to Entropy

Approaches to Entropy

Author: Jeremy R. H. Tame Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/12/2018

This is a book about thermodynamics, not history, but it adopts a semi-historical approach in order to highlight different approaches to entropy. The book does not follow a rigid temporal order of events, nor it is meant to be comprehensive. It includes solved examples for a solid understanding. The division into chapters under the names of key players in the development of the field is not intended to separate these individual contributions entirely, but to highlight their different approaches to entropy. This structure helps to provide a different view-point from other text-books on entropy.

Modeling and Simulation of Turbulent Combustion

Modeling and Simulation of Turbulent Combustion

Author: Santanu De Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/12/2018

This book presents a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art models for turbulent combustion, with special emphasis on the theory, development and applications of combustion models in practical combustion systems. It simplifies the complex multi-scale and nonlinear interaction between chemistry and turbulence to allow a broader audience to understand the modeling and numerical simulations of turbulent combustion, which remains at the forefront of research due to its industrial relevance. Further, the book provides a holistic view by covering a diverse range of basic and advanced topics-from the fundamentals of turbulence-chemistry interactions, role of high-performance computing in combustion simulations, and optimization and reduction techniques for chemical kinetics, to state-of-the-art modeling strategies for turbulent premixed and nonpremixed combustion and their applications in engineering contexts.

Non-equilibrium Evaporation and Condensation Processes

Non-equilibrium Evaporation and Condensation Processes

Author: Yuri B. Zudin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/12/2018

This monograph presents a comprehensive treatment of analytical solutions to problems in the area of non-equilibrium evaporation and condensation processes. The book covers, among others, topics such as systems of conversation equations for molecular fluxes of mass, momentum and energy within the Knudsen layer, spherical growth of vapor bubbles in volumes of highly superheated liquid. The target audience primarily comprises research experts in the field of thermodynamics and fluid dynamics, but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students alike.

Warmeleitung Und -Transport

Warmeleitung Und -Transport

Author: Nikolaus Hannoschoeck Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/10/2018

Warme wird in Maschinen und verfahrenstechnischen Anlagen, in der thermischen Energietechnik und in der Bauphysik genutzt oder muss, dort wo sie stoert, aus Systemen weggefuhrt werden. Dieses Lehrbuch handelt vom Warmetransport und Temperaturfeldern und ihrer Berechnung. Der erste Teil ist eine praxisnahe Einfuhrung und orientiert sich an Aufgabenstellungen, wie sie typisch fur den Maschinenbau, die Verfahrenstechnik und die Bauphysik sind. Weitere Kapitel gehen detailliert auf den Warmeaustausch an Grenzflachen und die Berechnungsverfahren fur den stationaren und instationaren Warmetransport ein. Der Anhang enthalt ein grosses Verzeichnis von thermophysikalischen Materialwerten, wie man sie fur die Arbeit in der Praxis benoetigt.

Chemical Thermodynamics and Information Theory with Applications

Chemical Thermodynamics and Information Theory with Applications

Author: Daniel J. (Loyola University, Chicago, Illinois, USA) Graham Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/09/2018

Thermodynamics and information touch theory every facet of chemistry. However, the physical chemistry curriculum digested by students worldwide is still heavily skewed toward heat/work principles established more than a century ago. Rectifying this situation, Chemical Thermodynamics and Information Theory with Applications explores applications drawn from the intersection of thermodynamics and information theory-two mature and far-reaching fields. In an approach that intertwines information science and chemistry, this book covers: The informational aspects of thermodynamic state equations The algorithmic aspects of transformations-compression, expansion, cyclic, and more The principles of best-practice programming How molecules transmit and modify information via collisions and chemical reactions Using examples from physical and organic chemistry, this book demonstrates how the disciplines of thermodynamics and information theory are intertwined. Accessible to curiosity-driven chemists with knowledge of basic calculus, probability, and statistics, the book provides a fresh perspective on time-honored subjects such as state transformations, heat and work exchanges, and chemical reactions.

Conjugate Problems in Convective Heat Transfer

Conjugate Problems in Convective Heat Transfer

Author: Abram S. (University of Michigan, USA) Dorfman Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/09/2018

Illustrates Calculations Using Machine and Technological Processes The conjugate heat transfer (CHT) problem addresses the thermal interaction between a body and fluid flowing over or through it. This is an essential consideration in nature and different areas of engineering, including mechanics, aerospace, nuclear engineering, biology, and meteorology. Advanced conjugate modeling of the heat transfer process is now used extensively in a wide range of applications. Conjugate Problems in Convective Heat Transfer addresses the latest theory, methods, and applications associated with both analytical and numerical methods of solution CHT problems and their exact and approximate solutions. It demonstrates how the true value of a CHT solution is derived by applying these solutions to contemporary engineering design analysis. Assembling cutting-edge information on modern modeling from more than 200 publications, this book presents more than 100 example applications in thermal treatment materials, machinery operation, and technological processes. Creating a practical review of current CHT development, the author includes methods associated with estimating heat transfer, particularly that from arbitrary non-isothermal surfaces in both laminar and turbulent flows. Harnesses the Modeling Power of CHT Unique in its consistent compilation and application of current knowledge, this book presents advanced CHT analysis as a powerful tool for modeling various device operations and technological processes, from relatively simple procedures to complex multistage, nonlinear processes.
