Title:Electromagnetic Processing of Materials [electronic resource] : Materials Processing by Using Electric and Magnetic Functions
Author(s): Shigeo Asai
Date:2012
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This bookis botha course book and a monograph. In fact, it has developed from notes given to graduate course students on materials processing in the years 1989 to 2006. Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (EPM),originatesfroma branchof materials science and engineeringdeveloped in the1980s as a field aiming to create new materials and/or design processes by making use of various functions which appear when applying the electric andmagnetic fieldsto materials. It is based on transport phenomena, m aterials processing and magnetohydrodynamics. The first chapter briefly introduces the history, background and technology of EPM. In the second chapter, the concept oftransport phenomena is concisely introduced and in the third chapter the essential part of magnetohydrodynamics is transcribed and readers areshown that the concept of transport phenomenadoes not only applyto heat, mass andmomentum, but also magnetic field. The fourth chapter describes electromagnetic processing of electrically conductive ma terials such as electromagnetic levitation, mixing, brake, and etc., which are caused by the Lorentz force. Thefifth chapter treats magnetic processing of organic and non-organic materials such as magnetic levitation, crystal orientation, structural align ment and etc., which are induced by the magnetization force. This part is a new academicfield named Magneto-Science, which focuseson the development of super-conducting magnets. This book is written so as to be understood by any graduate student in engine ering courses but also to be of interest to engineers andresearchers in industries

Title:Turbulent Combustion Modeling [electronic resource] : Advances, New Trends and Perspectives
Author(s): Tarek Echekki
Epaminondas Mastorakos
Date:2011
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Turbulent combustion sits at the interface of two important nonlinear, multiscale phenomena: chemistry and turbulence. Its study is extremely timely in view of the need to develop new combustion technologies in order to addresschallenges associated w ith climate change, energy source uncertainty, and air pollution. Despite the fact that modeling of turbulent combustion is a subject that has been researched for a number of years, its complexity implies thatkey issues are still eluding, and a theoretica l description that is accurate enough to make turbulent combustion models rigorous and quantitative for industrial use is still lacking. In this book, prominent experts review most of theavailable approaches in modeling turbulent combustion, with particul ar focus on the exploding increase in computational resources that has allowed the simulation of increasingly detailed phenomena. The relevant algorithms arepresented, the theoretical methods are explained, and various application examples are given. The book is intended for a relatively broad audience, including seasoned researchers and graduate students in engineering, appliedmathematics and computational science, engine designers and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) practitioners, scientists at fundi ng agencies, and anyone wishing to understand the state-of-the-art and the future directions of thisscientifically challenging and practically important field

Title:Space Systems Failures [electronic resource] : Disasters and Rescues of Satellites, Rockets and Space Probes
Author(s): David M Harland
Ralph D Lorenz
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Praxis
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the 1960s and 1970s deep space missions were dispatched in pairs in case one was lost in launch or failed during its journey. Following the triumphs of the Viking landings on Mars in 1976 and both Voyagers spacecraftsuccessfully surveying the oute r giant planets of the Solar System, it was decided by NASA to cut costs and send out just a single probe. Although Magellan successfully mapped Venus by radar, it suffered from problems during theflight. Then came the loss of Mars Observer, whose engine exploded as it was preparing to enter Mars orbit because it was using technology designed for Earths satellites and the engine was not suited to spending several months inspace. Later came the high-profile losses of Mars Climate Observer and Mars Polar La nder - a consequence of the faster, better, cheaper philosophy introduced by Dan Goldin in 1993. Even the highly successful Galileo mission suffered amajor setback when its high-gain antenna (also based on satellite mission suffered a major setback when i ts high-gain antenna (also based on satellite communication technology) failed to deploy fully, greatly diminishing the craftsradio transmission capabilities, forcing the ground crew to re-programme the on-board computer to enable it to fulfil its mission and provide stunning images of Jupiter and its moons. In Space Systems Failures, David Harland (hereworking with co-author Ralph Lorenz) describes the many quite fascinating tales of woe involving failures of rockets, satellites and deep space missions i n his inimitable style, providing a unique insight into the trials andtribulations of exploration at the high frontier
