Dynamics of Blood Cell Suspensions in Microflows

1st Edition

Annie Viallat, Manouk Abkarian
December 13, 2019

Blood microcirculation is essential to our bodies for the successful supply of nutrients, waste removal, oxygen delivery, homeostasis, controlling temperature, wound healing, and active immune surveillance. This book provides a physical introduction to the subject and explores how researchers can...

The Science of Soccer

2nd Edition

John Wesson
December 02, 2019

Updated and revised throughout, this new edition of The Science of Soccer applies scientific analysis to football, giving us the answers to questions like "what's the chance of a team that wins the Premiership also winning the Cup? Can you predict how many goals will be scored? What's the best...

Constantine Pozrikidis
October 18, 2019

Spanning biological, mathematical, computational, and engineering sciences, computational biofluiddynamics addresses a diverse family of problems involving fluid flow inside and around living organisms, organs, tissue, biological cells, and other biological materials. Computational Hydrodynamics of...

Classical Mechanics in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics

1st Edition

Osamu Morita
August 26, 2019

This textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate students outlines and provides links between classical mechanics and geophysical fluid dynamics. It is particularly suitable for the mechanics and fluids dynamics courses of geophysics, meteorology, or oceanography students as well as serving as a...

Coanda Effect: Flow Phenomenon and Applications

1st Edition

Noor A Ahmed
August 23, 2019

Coanda effect is a complex fluid flow phenomenon enabling the production of vertical take-off/landing aircraft. Other applications range from helicopters to road vehicles, from flow mixing to combustion, from noise reduction to pollution control, from power generation to robot operation, and so...

Mathematical Aspects of Natural Dynamos

1st Edition

Emmanuel Dormy, Andrew M. Soward
August 19, 2019

Although the origin of Earth's and other celestial bodies' magnetic fields remains unknown, we do know that the motion of electrically conducting fluids generates and maintains these fields, forming the basis of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and, to a larger extent, dynamo theory. Answering the need...

Waves, Particles and Fields: Introducing Quantum Field Theory

1st Edition

Anthony C. Fischer-Cripps
July 06, 2019

This book fills a gap in the middle ground between quantum mechanics of a single electron to the concept of a quantum field. In doing so, the book is divided into two parts; the first provides the necessary background to quantum theory extending from Planck’s formulation of black body radiation to...

The Newman Lectures on Thermodynamics

1st Edition

John S. Newman, Vincent S. Battaglia
July 02, 2019

Prof. Newman is considered one of the great chemical engineers of his time. His reputation derives from his mastery of all phases of the subject matter, his clarity of thought, and his ability to reduce complex problems to their essential core elements. He has been teaching undergraduate and...

Thermodynamics of Magnetizing Materials and Superconductors

1st Edition

Vladimir Kozhevnikov
June 10, 2019

This book will help readers understand thermodynamic properties caused by magnetic fields. Providing a concise review of time independent magnetic fields, it goes on to discuss the thermodynamic properties of magnetizing materials of different shapes, and finally, the equilibrium properties of...

Flexible Kalina Cycle Systems

1st Edition

Tangellapalli Srinivas, N. Shankar Ganesh, R. Shankar
March 01, 2019

This volume provides a good understanding of the binary fluid system, highlighting new dimensions of the existing Kalina cycle system, a thermodynamic process for converting thermal energy into usable mechanical power. The book illustrates that providing new flexibility leads to new research...

Contact Dynamics: Method of Differential Specific Forces

1st Edition

Nikolay Goloshchapov
February 13, 2019

This volume describes the application of the method of the differential specific forces (MDSF). By using this new method, the solutions to the problems of a dissipative viscoelastic and elastic-plastic contacts between curvilinear surfaces of two solid bodies can be found. The novelty is that the...
