Download Fluid- und Thermodynamik: Eine Einführung by Kolumban Hutter PDF

By Kolumban Hutter

Auf der Grundlage eines allgemein verständlichen, beiden Gebieten gemeinsamen Konzepts wird eine Einführung in die Fluid- und Thermodynamik gegeben. Die Fluiddynamik umfaßt die Hydrostatik, die Hydrodynamik der idealen und viskosen Fluide sowie die laminaren und turbulenten Rohrströmungen. In der Thermodynamik werden nach Einführung der Begriffe und der Darstellung der thermischen Zustandsgleichungen idealer Gase der erste und zweite Hauptsatz behandelt, beginnend mit der für adiabate, einfache Systeme gültigen shape nach Caratheodory bis hin zur Bilanzaussage von Clausius Duhem mit Anwendungen auf wärmeleitende viskose Fluide und die kanonischen Zustandsgleichungen. In der Gasdynamik, in der die Akustik, die stationäre isentrope Stromfadentheorie und die Stoßtheorie behandelt sind, werden Fluid- und Thermodynamik miteinander verwoben.
Das Buch schließt - als Besonderheit in der Lehrbuchliteratur - mit einem Kapitel über Dimensionsanalyse und Modelltheorie. Es eröffnet neben der Erarbeitung technischer Fragestellungen ebenso den Blick für umweltrelevante Probleme. Viele Beispiele aus Technik und Naturwissenschaft unterstützen diese Blickweise.

Download Geotechnical Engineering of Dams, 2nd Edition by Robin Fell PDF

By Robin Fell

This booklet offers a entire textual content at the geotechnical and geological elements of the investigations for and the layout and development of recent dams and the overview and evaluate of current dams. The emphasis is on embankment dams, yet a lot of the textual content, rather these components relating to geology, can be utilized for concrete gravity and arch dams. The ebook goals to supply practicing dam engineers and geologists with a realistic process, in addition to to provide collage scholars an perception into the topic of dam engineering. The theoretical foundation upon which layout equipment were built is incorporated so readers boost a formal knowing of the restrictions of the equipment. All stages of research, layout and development are coated, from the preliminary overview of a damsite and the advance and conducting of a close web site research software, via to the initial and precise layout stages and eventually the development part. The evaluation of present dams, together with the research of dangers posed through these dams, is additionally mentioned. This utterly revised and considerably extended second version encompasses a long new bankruptcy at the review of the chance of failure of dams by way of inner erosion and piping.

Download Design and analysis of boiler and pressure vessel components by Maan H. Jawad, Robert I. Jetter PDF

By Maan H. Jawad, Robert I. Jetter

Many buildings function at increased temperatures the place creep and rupture are a layout attention, corresponding to refinery and chemical plant gear, elements in power-generation devices, and engine components. At larger temperatures the cloth has a tendency to suffer slow bring up in dimensions with time, that may finally bring about rupture. hence, the layout of such parts needs to think about the creep and rupture of the cloth. during this ebook, a quick advent to the overall rules of layout at increased temperatures is given with broad references mentioned for additional in-depth knowing of the topic. A key characteristic of the proposed booklet is using examples to demonstrate the sensible program of the layout and research tools provided. This booklet is acceptable for training layout engineers within the strength and method industries, rather these in concerned with strain apparatus, nuclear buildings, petrochemical apparatus, and their supervisors

Download Putting ''loafing streams'' to work: the building of Lay, by Harvey H. Jackson PDF

By Harvey H. Jackson

This can be the tale of the human attempt that went into finishing some of the most complicated feats of engineering in Alabama heritage, the development of 4 significant hydroelectric dams by means of the Alabama energy corporation.  Between 1910 and 1930 the Alabama energy corporation outfitted 4 significant hydroelectric initiatives: Lay Dam (1914), Mitchell Dam (1923), and Jordan Dam (1929) at the Coosa River and Martin Dam (1926) at the Tallapoosa River. whilst the generators all started spinning and electrical energy started to movement from the ability homes to farms, cities, and towns, Alabama moved from the nineteenth into the 20 th century.Constructed in distant components of the kingdom, the dams have been detailed tasks, but all of them had parts in universal. the corporate needed to construct transportation networks to get males and fabric to the websites. employees, expert and unskilled, black and white, have been recruited, introduced in, housed, and fed. whilst other halves and kids joined the boys, employee camps turned cities, with faculties, church buildings, clinical clinics, and leisure amenities. those cities have been without delay a mirrored image in their culture--and a glance right into a destiny that electrical energy might make possible.Putting "Loafing Streams" to paintings is the tale of lifestyles within the cities and at the jobs. This tale can assist us larger comprehend the impression of Alabama Power's early actions and the way Alabamians spoke back to the forces of industrialization.
