This book provides theoretical concepts and applications of fractals and multifractals to a broad range of audiences from various scientific communities, such as petroleum, chemical, civil and environmental engineering, atmospheric research, and hydrology. In the first chapter, we introduce...

The Physics of Composite and Porous Media

T. J. T. (Tim) Spanos, Norman Udey
November 13, 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...

Radiophysical and Geomagnetic Effects of Rocket Burn and Launch in the Near-the-Earth Environment

Leonid F. Chernogor, Nathan Blaunstein
October 23, 2017

Radiophysical and Geomagnetic Effects of Rocket Burn and Launch in the Near-the-Earth Environment describes experimental and theoretical studies on the effects of rocket burns and launchings on the near-the-Earth environment and geomagnetic fields. It illuminates the main geophysical and...

Spectral Methods in Geodesy and Geophysics

Christopher Jekeli
September 28, 2017

The text develops the principal aspects of applied Fourier analysis and methodology with the main goal to inculcate a different way of perceiving global and regional geodetic and geophysical data, namely from the perspective of the frequency, or spectral, domain rather than the spatial domain. The...

Tubular String Characterization in High Temperature High Pressure Oil and Gas Wells

Jiuping Xu, Zezhong Wu
August 30, 2017

High temperature, high oil pressure, oil and gas well completion testing have always been a technical challenge and basic theoretical research is one of the key factors needed to ensure a successful completion test. The completion test basic theory includes: a stress analysis of the completion...

Drilling and Completion in Petroleum Engineering: Theory and Numerical Applications

Xinpu Shen, Mao Bai, William Standifird

Physics of Coal and Mining Processes

Anatoly D. Alexeev
March 30, 2017

Around the world, on average, four coal miners die for each million tons of coal recovered. Improving the safety of mining work while responding to the need for increased coal production, however, is impossible without further development of the physics of mining processes. A relatively new branch...
