Finite Elements and Fast Iterative Solvers: with Applications in Incompressible Fluid Dynamics (Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computation)

The topic of this e-book is the effective answer of partial differential equations (PDEs) that come up while modelling incompressible fluid circulate. the fabric is geared up into 4 teams of 2 chapters each one, masking the Poisson equation (chapters 1 & 2); the convection-diffucion equation (chapters three & 4); the Stokes equations (chapters five & 6); and the Navier-Stokes equations (chapters 7 & 8).

Hydraulics in civil and environmental engineering

Now in its 5th variation, Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering combines thorough assurance of the elemental rules of civil engineering hydraulics with wide-ranging remedy of functional, real-world functions. This vintage textual content is punctiliously dependent into components to handle rules ahead of relocating directly to extra complicated issues.

For a given velocity field the streamlines are determined from the differential equations: dr Â vðx; tÞ ¼ 0 , dx1 dx2 dx3 ¼ ¼ v1 v2 v3 at constant time t ð3:1:17Þ The vorticity vector or for short the vorticity cðx; tÞ of the velocity field is defined as: c ¼ r Â v  rot v  curl v ð3:1:18Þ The significance of this concept will be discussed in Sect. 1. e. cðx; tÞ ¼ 0; in a region of the flow.

For the present example the viscosity l is only increased by 1 % relative to that of water. The reason why very small amounts of polymer additives to a Newtonian fluid like water have such a large effect on drag, is not completely understood.
