By Meinhard T. Schobeiri

Complete insurance of fl uid mechanics for engineering applications

This finished quantity leads you from crucial fluid mechanics innovations via to functional engineering purposes. After an summary of tensor research, the ebook discusses the kinematics of move movement and the conservation legislation of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. particular info on inviscid and viscous flows is through 4 chapters facing viscous stream. therapy of viscous circulate starts off with the laminar circulation, explains intimately the laminar turbulent transition, and prepares you to completely comprehend the fundamentals of turbulent circulation, its modeling, and purposes to a number of engineering cases.

All conservation legislation, their derivatives, and similar equations within the publication are written in coordinate invariant kinds. this lets you stick to step by step mathematical manipulations and arrive on the index notation and the part decomposition. not easy difficulties and tasks on the finish of every bankruptcy specialize in real-world engineering purposes. This booklet serves as either a basics textual content for graduate scholars and a pro advisor for operating engineers.

Advances in Chemical Engineering

The subject matter of the current quantity of Advances in Chemical Engineering is Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and goals to teach the cutting-edge of the applying of CFD in chemical engineering. the quantity is made of 5 complementary contributions, offering a mode of among an educational and a learn paper.

Engineering Heat Transfer, Third Edition

Such a lot warmth move texts comprise an identical fabric: conduction, convection, and radiation. How the cloth is gifted, how good the writer writes the explanatory and descriptive fabric, and the quantity and caliber of perform difficulties is what makes the variation. much more very important, despite the fact that, is how scholars obtain the textual content.

Fluid Flow for the Practicing Chemical Engineer (Essential Engineering Calculations Series)

This booklet teaches the basics of fluid move by means of together with either idea and the functions of fluid circulate in chemical engineering. It places fluid move within the context of alternative delivery phenomena similar to mass move and warmth move, whereas protecting the fundamentals, from basic circulation mechanics to the legislation of conservation.

Principles of Fire Behavior, Second Edition

This article covers the 4 types of fireplace: diffusion flames, smoldering, spontaneous combustion, and premixed flames. utilizing a quantitative approach, the text introduces the medical ideas of fireside habit, with assurance of warmth move, ignition, flame unfold, hearth plumes, and warmth flux as a harm variable.
