Advanced Transport Phenomena: Fluid Mechanics and Convective by L. Gary Leal

By L. Gary Leal

complex delivery Phenomena is perfect as a graduate textbook. It features a certain dialogue of contemporary analytic tools for the answer of fluid mechanics and warmth and mass move difficulties, concentrating on approximations in accordance with scaling and asymptotic equipment, starting with the derivation of simple equations and boundary stipulations and concluding with linear balance thought. additionally coated are unidirectional flows, lubrication and thin-film conception, creeping flows, boundary layer conception, and convective warmth and mass shipping at low and high Reynolds numbers. The emphasis is on simple physics, scaling and nondimensionalization, and approximations that may be used to procure options which are due both to geometric simplifications, or huge or small values of dimensionless parameters. the writer emphasizes developing difficulties and extracting as a lot details as attainable wanting acquiring specific suggestions of differential equations. The e-book additionally specializes in the options of consultant difficulties. This displays the book's aim of educating readers to contemplate the answer of delivery problems.
