Download Boundary Value Problems in Mechanics of Nonhomogeneous by S.N. Antontsev, A.V. Kazhiktov, V.N. Monakhov PDF

By S.N. Antontsev, A.V. Kazhiktov, V.N. Monakhov

The target of this booklet is to document the result of investigations made via the authors into definite hydrodynamical versions with nonlinear structures of partial differential equations.

The investigations contain the implications relating Navier-Stokes equations of viscous heat-conductive gasoline, incompressible nonhomogeneous fluid and filtration of multi-phase combination in a porous medium. The correctness of the preliminary boundary-value difficulties and the qualitative homes of strategies also are thought of. The ebook is written should you have an interest within the thought of nonlinear partial differential equations and their functions in mechanics.

Download Turbulence in Fluids: Stochastic and Numerical Modelling by Marcel Lesieur PDF

By Marcel Lesieur

Turbulence is a deadly subject that's usually on the foundation of significant fights within the clinical conferences dedicated to it because it represents super diversified issues of view, all of that have in universal their complexity, in addition to an lack of ability to unravel the matter. it really is even tricky to agree on what precisely is the matter to be solved. tremendous schematically, opposing issues of view were encouraged in the course of those final ten years: the 1st one is "statistical", and attempts to version the evolution of averaged amounts of the circulate. This com­ has the fantastic path of Taylor and Kolmogorov, munity, which believes within the phenomenology of cascades, and strongly disputes the potential of any coherence or order linked to turbulence. at the different financial institution of the river stands the "coherence between chaos" group, which considers turbulence from a in simple terms deterministic po­ int of view, via learning both the behaviour of dynamical structures, or the steadiness of flows in quite a few occasions. To this neighborhood also are linked the experimentalists who search to spot coherent buildings in shear flows.

Download Labyrinth and Piano Key Weirs II by Sébastien Erpicum, Frédéric Laugier, Michael Pfister, Michel PDF

By Sébastien Erpicum, Frédéric Laugier, Michael Pfister, Michel Pirotton, Guy-Michel Cicero, Anton J. Schleiss

Dam engineering is at present experiencing a powerful revival of labyrinth orientated weirs. Labyrinth weirs, with a repetitive constructional personality and an elevated particular discharge capability, are an excellent technical-economical compromise. the concept that of Piano Key Weir (PKW), with alveoli constructed in overhangs from a discounted help quarter, allows the install of non-linear crests on the best of concrete dams. hence it removes the most quandary of classical labyrinth weirs, and allows their use to rehabilitate a variety of latest dams.

Since the 1st implementation of piano key weirs via Electricité de France on Goulours dam (France) in 2006, no less than 8 PKWs were inbuilt France, Vietnam and Switzerland. Their operation over many years has already supplied the 1st prototype facts. different tasks are less than examine, development or making plans in assorted international locations. On one other hand, examine courses are below growth everywhere in the world.

Following a primary variation in 2011, Labyrinth and Piano Key Weirs II – PKW 2013 collects up to date contributions from individuals with a variety of backgrounds, from engineers and researchers to teachers. Summarizing the final advancements on labyrinth orientated weirs, the e-book constitutes the cutting-edge in learn and alertness of piano key weir options, and should be important to execs and scientists attracted to Dams Engineering.

Download Thinking fluid dynamics with dolphins by Minoru Nagai PDF

By Minoru Nagai

This small quantity is the English variation of a eastern publication entitled "Learning fluid dynamics from dolphins". The identify is derived from the truth that "Dolphins swim too speedy to be defined scientifically". The first individual to obviously describe this phenomenon used to be the English biologist Sir James grey (J.Gray, 1936), and this secret is understood between physicists and experts in marine engineering as "Gray's paradox" or just because the "Mystery of dolphins". as well as dolphins, tuna, marlin and a few different fish also are recognized for swimming at notable excessive speeds. Treating either dolphins and fish jointly within the related name is tough simply because either animals have a ways various taxonomy - dolphins belonging to oceanic mammals and tuna and marlin belonging to teleostei fish. This ebook makes use of dolphins as symbolic animals that practice high-speed swimming. moreover, "dolphins" are selected because the major co-actor during this English version simply because western readers think an affinity for them. This booklet makes a speciality of readers, who're drawn to expertise and technology and who desire to concentrate on technological occupations. This ebook goals to introduce the constructing background of fluid dynamics, after which outlines the learn historical past and the current attractiveness of "Gray's paradox". eventually, the author's examine, via approximately 3 many years, is reviewed. This paradox advised within the early twentieth century has carried over into the twenty first century with no discovering a whole answer. it might be a superb excitement for the writer if the readers locate curiosity in fluid dynamics, a self-discipline that has built by means of overcoming a variety of paradoxes, or suppose the temper on the vanguard of the "intelligence" of mankind.

Download Turbulence : the legacy of A.N. Kolmogorov by Frisch, Uriel; Kolmogorov, Andreĭ Nikolaevich PDF

By Frisch, Uriel; Kolmogorov, Andreĭ Nikolaevich

Written 5 centuries after the 1st experiences of Leonardo da Vinci and part a century after A.N. Kolmogorov's first try and are expecting the houses of move, this textbook offers a contemporary account of turbulence, one of many maximum demanding situations in physics. "Fully constructed turbulence" is ubiquitous in either cosmic and typical environments, in engineering purposes and in lifestyle. uncomplicated displays of dynamical platforms principles, probabilistic tools (including the idea of enormous deviations) and fractal geometry make this a self-contained textbook. this can be the 1st booklet on turbulence to exploit glossy principles from chaos and symmetry breaking. The publication will entice first-year graduate scholars in arithmetic, physics, astrophysics, geosciences and engineering, in addition to expert scientists and engineers
