Colloidal Dispersions (Cambridge Monographs on Mechanics) by W. B. Russel,D. A. Saville,W. R. Schowalter

By W. B. Russel,D. A. Saville,W. R. Schowalter

This publication covers the actual facet of colloidal technological know-how from the person forces performing among debris smaller than a micrometer which are suspended in a liquid, during the ensuing equilibrium and dynamic houses. various inner forces either appealing and repulsive act along side Brownian movement and the stability among all of them comes to a decision the part behaviour. On most sensible of this a number of exterior fields, reminiscent of gravity or electromagnetic fields, diffusion and non-Newtonian rheology produce advanced results, every one of that is of significant medical and technological curiosity. The authors goal to impart a valid, quantitative figuring out in keeping with primary thought and experiments with well-characterised version platforms. This huge grab of the basics lends perception and is helping to boost the intuitive experience had to isolate crucial positive aspects of the technological difficulties and layout severe experiments. the most necessities for realizing the booklet are uncomplicated fluid mechanics, statistical mechanics and electromagnetism, notwithstanding self contained stories of every topic are supplied at applicable issues. a few facility with differential equations is usually important. workouts are incorporated on the finish of every bankruptcy, making the paintings compatible as a textbook for graduate classes in chemical engineering or utilized arithmetic. it's going to even be necessary as a reference for people in academia or venture study in colloid science.

Theory and Applications of Nonviscous Fluid Flows

From the stories: "Researchers in fluid dynamics and utilized arithmetic will get pleasure from this e-book for its breadth of assurance, hands-on remedy of significant rules, many references, and old and philosophical feedback. " Mathematical studies

Energy Conversion (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Series)

Discussing tools for maximizing to be had strength, power Conversion surveys the newest advances in strength conversion from a wide selection of presently to be had power resources. The publication describes strength resources equivalent to fossil fuels, biomass together with refuse-derived biomass fuels, nuclear, sun radiation, wind, geothermal, and ocean, then offers the terminology and devices used for every strength source and their equivalence.

Boundary-Layer Theory

This re-creation of the near-legendary textbook through Schlichting and revised through Gersten offers a accomplished assessment of boundary-layer thought and its software to all parts of fluid mechanics, with specific emphasis at the circulate previous our bodies (e. g. plane aerodynamics). the recent version good points an up-to-date reference record and over a hundred extra adjustments during the ebook, reflecting the most recent advances at the topic.

Variational Formulation of Fluid and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics: Mechanics, Symmetries and Conservation Laws (Advances in Geophysical and Environmental Mechanics and Mathematics)

This publication describes the derivation of the equations of movement of fluids in addition to the dynamics of ocean and atmospheric currents on either huge and small scales by using variational equipment. during this manner the equations of Fluid and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics are re-derived utilising a unifying precept, that's Hamilton’s precept of Least motion.
