Mathematical Modelling of Waves in Multi-Scale Structured Media

Alexander B. Movchan, Natasha V. Movchan, Ian S. Jones, Daniel J. Colquitt
November 13, 2017

Mathematical Modelling of Waves in Multi-Scale Structured Media presents novel analytical and numerical models of waves in structured elastic media, with emphasis on the asymptotic analysis of phenomena such as dynamic anisotropy, localisation, filtering and polarisation as well as on the modelling...

Unitary Analysis, Synthesis, and Classification of Flow Meters

Horia Mihai Moțit
November 10, 2017

This book is the first to present flow measurement as an independent branch of the measurement techniques, according to a new global and unitary approach for the measurement of fluid flow field, starting from finding its unitary fundamental bases. Furthermore, it elaborates the method of unitary...

The Physics of Composite and Porous Media

T. J. T. (Tim) Spanos, Norman Udey
November 01, 2017

Building on the success of T.J.T. Spanos's previous book The Thermophysics of Porous Media, The Physics of Composite and Porous Media explains non-linear field theory that describes how physical processes occur in the earth. It describes physical processes associated with the interaction of the...

Handbook of Research for Fluid and Solid Mechanics: Theory, Simulation, and Experiment

Kaveh Hariri Asli, Soltan Ali Ogli Aliyev, Sabu Thomas, Deepu A. Gopakumar
November 01, 2017

This valuable volume provides a broad understanding of the main computational techniques used for processing reclamation of fluid and solid mechanics. The aim of these computational techniques is to reduce and eliminate the risks of mechanical systems failure in hydraulic machines. Using many...

Computational Transport Phenomena for Engineering Analyses

Richard C. Farmer, Ralph W. Pike, Gary C. Cheng, Yen-Sen Chen
October 31, 2017

Although computer technology has dramatically improved the analysis of complex transport phenomena, the methodology has yet to be effectively integrated into engineering curricula. The huge volume of literature associated with the wide variety of transport processes cannot be appreciated or...

Novel Compound Semiconductor Nanowires: Materials, Devices, and Applications

Fumitaro Ishikawa, Irina Buyanova
October 11, 2017

One dimensional electronic materials are expected to be key components owing to their potential applications in nanoscale electronics, optics, energy storage, and biology. Besides, compound semiconductors have been greatly developed as epitaxial growth crystal materials. Molecular beam and...

Wavelet Analysis in Civil Engineering

Pranesh Chatterjee
October 01, 2017

Wavelets as a Powerful Signal Processing Tool The principles of wavelets can be applied to a range of problems in civil engineering structures, such as earthquake-induced vibration analysis, bridge vibrations, and damage identification. This book is particularly useful for graduate students and...

Experimental Hydraulics: Methods, Instrumentation, Data Processing and Management, Two Volume Set

Marian Muste, Jochen Aberle, David Admiraal, Robert Ettema, Marcelo H. Garcia, Dennis Lyn, Vladimir Nikora, Colin Rennie
September 14, 2017

This two-volume book is a comprehensive guide to designing, conducting and interpreting experiments in a broad range of topics associated with hydraulic engineering. It is the first substantial effort in hydraulic engineering to assemble in one place descriptions of all the components of...

Handbook of Optofluidics

Aaron R. Hawkins, Holger Schmidt
August 30, 2017

Optofluidics is an emerging field that involves the use of fluids to modify optical properties and the use of optical devices to detect flowing media. Ultimately, its value is highly dependent on the successful integration of photonic integrated circuits with microfluidic or nanofluidic systems....

Fluvial Processes: 2nd Edition

Ana Maria Ferreira da Silva, M. Selim Yalin
August 08, 2017

A stream flowing in alluvium deforms its bed surface, forming ripples, dunes, bars, etc., and, in many instances, it deforms its channel entirely, thereby creating meandering or braiding patterns. It could be said that, in general, an alluvial stream and its deformable boundary undergo a variety of...

Mechanics of Liquid Nano- and Microdispersed Magnetic Media

V. M. Polunin, A. M. Storozhenko, P.A. Ryapolov
August 04, 2017

This book offers unique coverage of the mechanical properties of nano- and micro-dispersed magnetic fluids. Magnetic fluids are artificially created materials that do not exist in the nature. Researchers developing materials and devices are keenly interested in their "mutually exclusive" properties...

Drilling and Completion in Petroleum Engineering: Theory and Numerical Applications

Xinpu Shen, Mao Bai, William Standifird
June 29, 2017

Modern petroleum and petrotechnical engineering is increasingly challenging due to the inherently scarce and decreasing number of global petroleum resources. Exploiting these resources efficiently will require researchers, scientists, engineers and other practitioners to develop innovative...
