Title:Unsteady Computational Fluid Dynamics in Aeronautics [electronic resource]
Author(s): P.G Tucker
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The field of Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and hybrids is a vibrant research area. This book runs through all the potential unsteady modelling fidelity ranges, from low-order to LES. The latter is probably the highest fidelity forpractical aerospace sy stems modelling. Cutting edge new frontiers are defined. One example of a pressing environmental concern is noise. For the accurate prediction of this, unsteady modelling is needed. Hence computationalaeroacoustics is explored. It is also emerging that th ere is a critical need for coupled simulations. Hence, this area is also considered and the tensions of utilizing such simulations with the already expensive LES. This work hasrelevance to the general field of CFD and LES and to a wide variety of non-aero space aerodynamic systems (e.g. cars, submarines, ships, electronics, buildings). Topics treated include unsteady flow techniques LES and hybrids generalnumerical methods computational aeroacoustics computational aeroelasticity coupled simulations and tur bulence and its modelling (LES, RANS, transition, VLES, URANS). The volume concludes by pointing forward to future horizons and inparticular the industrial use of LES. The writing style is accessible and useful to both academics and industrial practitione rs. From the reviews: Tucker's volume provides a very welcome, concise discussion of current capabilitiesfor simulating and modellng unsteady aerodynamic flows. It covers the various possible numerical techniques in good, clear detail and presents a very wide range of practical applications beautifully illustrated in many cases. Thisbook thus provides a valuable text for practicing engineers, a rich source of background information for students and those new to this area of Research & Development, and an excellent state-of-the-art review for others.

Title:The Hunter [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Giancarlo Genta
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The 24th century: humankind has become a spacefaring civilization, colonizing the solar system and beyond. While no alien forms of life have yet been encountered in this expansion into space, colonists suddenly encounter machinesof alien origin - hug e robots able to reproduce themselves. Called replicators by the colonists, they seem to have but a single goal: to destroy all organic life they come in contact with. Since the colonial governments have no meansto fight this menace directly, they instead promise huge rewards to whoever destroys a replicator. As a result, the frontier attracts a new kind of adventurers, the Hunters, who work to find and destroy the replicators. Mike Edwards, avvskilled young maintenance technician and robotics expert at a faraway outpost, will not only become one of them - but be the very first one to unlock the secret behind the replicators origin and mission. The scientific andtechnical aspects underlying the plot - in particular space travel, robotics and self-replica ting spacecraft - are introduced and discussed by the author in an extensive non-technical appendix. An expert in space flight technology,with a special interest in space robotics and advanced space propulsion, Giancarlo Genta is a professor in the Depart ment of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of the Politecnico di Torino, in Turin, Italy. He is also director ofthe Italian SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) study center and is a full member of the International Academy of Astronautics. H e has written more than 300 scientific papers and 11 scientific books.Among his popularscience books are Space: The Final Frontier?, published by Cambridge University Press in 2002, and Lonely Minds in the Universe - The Search for Extraterrestrial Intell igence, published by Springer-Copernicus in June 2007. The Hunter,already published in Italian and Ukrainian, is his first novel

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph, written from a numerical analysis perspective, aims to provide a comprehensive treatment of both the mathematical framework and the numerical methods for flexible multibody dynamics. Not only is this fieldpermanently and rapidly growi ng, with various applications in aerospace engineering, biomechanics, robotics, and vehicle analysis, its foundations can also be built on reasonably established mathematical models. Regarding actualcomputations, great strides have been made over the last two decades, as sophisticated software packages are now capable of simulating highly complex structures with rigid and deformable components. The approach used in this bookshould benefit graduate students and scientists working in computational mechanics and related disciplines as well as those interested in time-dependent partial differential equations and heterogeneous problems with multiple timescales. Additionally, a number of open issues at the frontiers of research are addressed by taking a differe ntial-algebraic approach and extending it to the notion of transient saddle point problems

Note:Aerogels are the lightest solids known. Up to 1000 times lighter than glass and with a density as low as only four times that of air, they show very high thermal, electrical and acoustic insulation values and hold many entries inGuinness World Record s. Originally based on silica, R&D efforts have extended this class of materials to non-silicate inorganic oxides, natural and synthetic organic polymers, carbon, metal and ceramic materials, etc. Composite systemsinvolving polymer-crosslinked aerogels an d interpenetrating hybrid networks have been developed and exhibit remarkable mechanical strength and flexibility. Even more exotic aerogels based on clays, chalcogenides, phosphides, quantumdots, and biopolymers such as chitosan are opening new applicati ons for the construction, transportation, energy, defense and healthcare industries. Applications in electronics, chemistry, mechanics, engineering, energy production andstorage, sensors, medicine, nanotechnology, military and aerospace, oil and gas recov ery, thermal insulation and household uses are being developed with an estimated annual market growth rate of around 70% until 2015. The AerogelsHandbook summarizes state-of-the-art developments and processing of inorganic, organic, and composite aerogels , including the most important methods of synthesis, characterization as well as their typical applications and theirpossible market impact. Readers will find an exhaustive overview of all aerogel materials known today, their fabrication, upscaling aspect s, physical and chemical properties, and most recent advances towards applications and commercialproducts, some of which are commercially available today.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this monograph the authors develop a theory for the robust control of discrete-time stochastic systems, subjected to both independent random perturbations and to Markov chains. Such systems are widely used to providemathematical models for real pr ocesses in fields such as aerospace engineering, communications, manufacturing, finance and economy. The theory is a continuation of the authors work presented in their previous book entitledMathematical Methods in Robust Control of Linear Stochastic Syst ems published by Springer in 2006. Key features: - Provides a common unifying framework for discrete-time stochastic systems corrupted with both independent randomperturbations and with Markovian jumps which are usually treated separately in the control l iterature - Covers preliminary material on probability theory, independent random variables, conditional expectation and Markov chains -Proposes new numerical algorithms to solve coupled matrix algebraic Riccati equations - Leads the reader in a natural w ay to the original results through a systematic presentation - Presents new theoretical results with detailednumerical examples The monograph is geared to researchers and graduate students in advanced control engineering, applied mathematics, mathematical systems theory and finance. It is also accessible to undergraduate students with afundamental knowledge in the theory of stochastic systems

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The modeling of reactive flows has progressed mainly with advances in aerospace, which gave birth to a new science called aerothermochemistry, as well as through developments in chemical and process engineering. The methodsemployed, the phenomena inv estigated, and the aims of modeling differ for each field however, in all cases, the results obtained have considerably enriched the working knowledge of reactive flows. This work examines basic concepts andmethods necessary to study reactive flows and tr ansfer phenomena in areas such as fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and chemistry. Specific topics covered include: * Equations of state * Transfer phenomena and chemical kinetics *Balance equations of reactive flows * Dimensionless numbers and similarity * Chemical reactors * Coupled phenomena * Turbulent flow concepts * Boundary layers and fluid layers * Reactive and nonreactive waves * Interface phenomena *Multiphase flow concepts The book presents tools of interest to graduate students, researchers in mathematical physics, and engineers who wish to investigate problems of reactive flows. Portions of the text may be used in courses onthe physics of liquids or in seminars on mechanics

Title:Integrable Systems in Celestial Mechanics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Diarmuid Mathna
Date:2008
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This work presents a unified treatment of three important integrable problems relevant to both Celestial and Quantum Mechanics. Under discussion are the Kepler (two-body) problem and the Euler (two-fixed center) problem, thelatter being the more comp lex and more instructive, as it exhibits a richer and more varied solution structure. Further, because of the interesting investigations by the 20th century mathematical physicist J.P. Vinti, the Euler problemis now recognized as being intimately linked t o the Vinti (Earth-satellite) problem. Here the analysis of these problems is shown to follow a definite shared pattern yielding exact forms for the solutions. A central feature is thedetailed treatment of the planar Euler problem where the solutions are expressed in terms of Jacobian elliptic functions, yielding analytic representations for the orbits over the entire parameter range. This exhibits the rich andvaried solution patterns that emerge in the Euler problem, which are illustrated in the appendix . A comparably detailed analysis is performed for the Earth-satellite (Vinti) problem. Key features: * Highlights shared features in theunified treatment of the Kepler, Euler, and Vinti problems * Raises challenges in analysis and astronomy, placing this trio of problems in the modern context * Includes a full analysis of the planar Euler problem * Highlights thecomplex and surprising orbit patterns that arise from the Euler problem * Provides a detailed analysis and solution for the Earth-satellite probl em The analysis and results in this work will be of interest to graduate students inmathematics and physics (including physical chemistry) and researchers concerned with the general areas of dynamical systems, statistical mechanics, and mathematical physi cs and has direct application to celestial mechanics, astronomy,orbital mechanics, and aerospace engineering

Title:Principles of Engineering Mechanics [electronic resource] : Volume 2 DynamicsThe Analysis of Motion
Author(s): Millard F Beatty
Date:2006
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Separation of the elements of classical mechanics into kinematics and dynamics is an uncommon tutorial approach, but the author uses it to advantage in this two-volume set. Students gain a mastery of kinematics first a solidfoundation for the later study of the free-body formulation of the dynamics problem. A key objective of these volumes, which present a vector treatment of the principles of mechanics, is to help the student gain confidence intransforming problems into appropriate mathematical lan guage that may be manipulated to give useful physical conclusions or specific numerical results. In the first volume, the elements of vector calculus and the matrix algebra arereviewed in appendices. Unusual mathematical topics, such as singularity functi ons and some elements of tensor analysis, are introduced within the text. A logical and systematic building of well-known kinematic concepts, theorems, andformulas, illustrated by examples and problems, is presented offering insights into both fundamental s and applications. Problems amplify the material and pave the way for advanced study of topics in mechanical design analysis, advancedkinematics of mechanisms and analytical dynamics, mechanical vibrations and controls, and continuum mechanics of solids and fluids. Volume I of Principles of Engineering Mechanics provides the basis for a stimulating and rewardingone-term course for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students specializing in mechanics, engineering science, engineering physics, applied mathematics, materials science, and mechanical, aerospace, and civil engineering.Professionals working in related fields of applied mathematics will find it a practical review and a quick reference for questions involving basic kinematics
