Download Flow and Transport in Porous Media and Fractured Rock: From by Muhammad Sahimi PDF

By Muhammad Sahimi

During this general reference of the sphere, theoretical and experimental methods to stream, hydrodynamic dispersion, and miscible displacements in porous media and fractured rock are thought of. assorted techniques are mentioned and contrasted with one another. the 1st technique is predicated at the classical equations of circulation and shipping, known as 'continuum models'. the second one procedure is predicated on smooth tools of statistical physics of disordered media; that's, on 'discrete models', that have turn into more and more well known over the last 15 years. The publication is exclusive in its scope, considering the fact that (1) there's presently no booklet that compares the 2 methods, and covers all vital points of porous media difficulties; and (2) contains dialogue of fractured rocks, which up to now has been taken care of as a separate subject.

parts of the booklet will be appropriate for a sophisticated undergraduate direction. The ebook should be perfect for graduate classes at the topic, and will be utilized by chemical, petroleum, civil, environmental engineers, and geologists, in addition to physicists, utilized physicist and allied scientists that take care of a number of porous media difficulties.

Download What was Mechanical about Mechanics: The Concept of Force by J. Christiaan Boudri (auth.) PDF

By J. Christiaan Boudri (auth.)

The Age of cause is left the darkish a long time of the historical past of mechanics. Clifford A. Truesdell) 1. 1 THE INVISIBLE fact OF CLASSICAL PHYSICS There are a few questions that physics because the days of Newton easily can't an­ swer. possibly crucial of those should be labeled as 'questions of eth­ ics', and 'questions of final meaning'. The query of humanity's position within the cosmos and in nature is pre-eminently a philosophical and non secular one, and physics turns out to have little to give a contribution to answering it. even though physics claims to have made very basic discoveries concerning the cosmos and nature, its drawback is with the coherence and order of fabric phenomena instead of with questions of suggest­ ing. every now and then thinkers corresponding to Stephen Hawking or Fritjof Capra emerge, who seem to declare overall world-view will be derived from physics. usually, even if, such authors don't really make any nice attempt to make strong on their declare to completeness: their solutions to questions of that means usually faded in compari­ 2 son with their solutions to traditional questions in physics. furthermore, to the level that they do try and resolution questions of which means, possible exhibit that they three draw on assumptions from outdoor physics.

Download Fracture Mechanics of Metals, Composites, Welds, and Bolted by Bahram Farahmand PDF

By Bahram Farahmand

This ebook was once written to function either a professional's evaluate of the full box of fatigue and fracture mechanics because it is at present practiced, and as an advent to the appliance of the Fracture Mechanics of Ductile Metals (FMDM) concept. specific merits comprise: program of fracture mechanics suggestions to steel constitution, composites, welds and bolted joints. wide dialogue of 2 welding suggestions presently utilized in aerospace and plane constitution, with emphasis given to cutting-edge friction stir welding ideas. existence overview of welded and bolted joints, with instance difficulties. harm tolerance and sturdiness review of composites, no longer present in the other e-book released during this sector. Presentation of Elastic-Plastic Fracture Mechanics (EPFM). program of multi-specimen and single-specimen strategies to procure fracture houses. advent to Fracture Mechanics of Ductile Metals (FMDM) concept to figure out residual energy strength of structural metals. dialogue of options to figure out the cloth fracture durability houses with no the necessity for laboratory checking out. this can be the 1st unmarried textual content to give functions of fatigue and fracture mechanics to metals and composites and in addition comprise functional purposes and instance difficulties. it will likely be an crucial reference for researchers, practitioners, and scholars alike.
