Title:Advanced Experimental and Numerical Techniques for Cavitation Erosion Prediction [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ki-Han Kim
Georges Chahine
Jean-Pierre Franc
Ayat Karimi
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the cavitation erosion phenomenon and state-of-the-art research in the field. It is divided into two parts. Part 1 consists of seven chapters, offering a wide range of computationaland experimental appr oaches to cavitation erosion. It includes a general introduction to cavitation and cavitation erosion, a detailed description of facilities and measurement techniques commonly used in cavitation erosion studies, anextensive presentation of various stages of cavitation damage (including incubation and mass loss), and insights into the contribution of computational methods to the analysis of both fluid and material behavior. The proposed approachis based on a detailed description of impact loads generated b y collapsing cavitation bubbles and a physical analysis of the material response to these loads. Part 2 is devoted to a selection of nine papers presented at theInternational Workshop on Advanced Experimental and Numerical Techniques for Cavitation Erosio n (Grenoble, France, 1-2 March 2011), representingthe forefront of research oncavitation erosion. Innovative numerical and experimentalinvestigations illustrate the most advanced breakthroughs in cavitation erosion research.

Title:Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaotic Phenomena: An Introduction [electronic resource]
Author(s): Bhimsen K Shivamoggi
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book starts with a discussion of nonlinear ordinary differential equations, bifurcation theory and Hamiltonian dynamics. It then embarks on a systematic discussion of the traditional topics of modern nonlinear dynamics --integrable systems, Poin car maps, chaos, fractals and strange attractors. The Bakers transformation, the logistic map and Lorenz system are discussed in detail in view of their central place in the subject. There is a detaileddiscussion of solitons centered around the Korteweg-d eVries equation in view of its central place in integrable systems. Then, there is a discussion of the Painlev property of nonlinear differential equations which seems to provide atest of integrability. Finally, there is a detailed discussion of the appli cation of fractals and multi-fractals to fully-developed turbulence -- a problem whose understanding has been considerably enriched by the application of theconcepts and methods of modern nonlinear dynamics. On the application side, there is a special emp hasis on some aspects of fluid dynamics and plasma physics reflecting the authors involvement in these areas of physics. A fewexercises have been provided that range from simple applications to occasional considerable extension of the theory. This book ha s grown out of the authors lecture notes for an interdisciplinary graduate-level course on nonlineardynamics. The basic concepts, language and results of nonlinear dynamical systems are described in a clear and coherent way. In order to allow for an inter disciplinary readership, an informal style has been adopted and the mathematicalformalism has been kept to a minimum. This book is addressed to first-year graduate students in applied mathematics, physics, and engineering, and is useful also to any theore tically inclined researcher in the physical sciences andengineering. This second edition constitutes an extensive rewrite of the text involving refinement and enhancement of the clarity a

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:Five Decades of Tackling Models for Stiff Fluid Dynamics Problems [electronic resource] : A Scientific Autobiography
Author(s): Radyadour Kh Zeytounian
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Rationality - as opposed to 'ad-hoc' - and asymptotics - to emphasize the fact that perturbative methods are at the core of the theory - are the two main concepts associated with the Rational Asymptotic Modeling (RAM) approach influid dynamics when t he goal is to specifically provide useful models accessible to numerical simulation via high-speed computing. This approach has contributed to a fresh understanding of Newtonian fluid flow problems and has openedup new avenues for tackling real fluid flow phenomena, which are known to lead to very difficult mathematical and numerical problems irrespective of turbulence. With the present scientific autobiography the author guides the readerthrough his somewhat non-traditional career first discovering fluid mechanics, and then devoting more than fifty years to intense work in the field. Using both personal and general historical contexts, this account will be of benefitto anyone interested in the early and contemporary developments of an important branch of theoretical and computational fluid mechanics

Note:Fluid flows are characterized by uncertain inputs such as random initial data, material and flux coefficients, and boundary conditions. The current volume addresses the pertinent issue of efficiently computing the flowuncertainty, given this initial randomness. It collects seven original review articles that cover improved versions of the Monte Carlo method (the so-called multi-level Monte Carlo method (MLMC)), moment-based stochastic Galerkinmethods and modified versions of the stochastic collocatio n methods that use adaptive stencil selection of the ENO-WENO type in both physical and stochastic space. The methods are also complemented by concrete applications such asflows around aerofoils and rockets, problems of aeroelasticity (fluid-structure int eractions), and shallow water flows for propagating water waves. The wealth of numerical examples provide evidence on the suitability of each proposedmethod as well as comparisons of different approaches

Note:The theoriesdescribing seemingly unrelated areas of physics have surprising analogies that have arousedthe curiosity of scientists and motivatedefforts toidentify reasons for their existence.Comparative study ofphysical theories has revealed the pres ence of a common topological and geometric structure. The Mathematical Structure of Classical and Relativistic Physicsis the first book to analyzethis structure in depth, thereby exposing therelationship between (a) global physical variables and (b) space and time elements such as points, lines, surfaces, instants, and intervals. Combining this relationship with the inner and outer orientation of space and time allows oneto construct a classification diagram for variables, equations, and other theoretical characteristics. The bookis divided into three parts. The first introduces the framework for the above-mentioned classification, methodicallydevelopingageometric and topologicalformulationapplicable to allphysical laws and properties the second applies t his formulation to a detailed study of particle dynamics, electromagnetism, deformable solids, fluid dynamics,heat conduction, and gravitation. The third part further analyses the general structure of the classification diagram for variables and equations of physical theories. Suitable for a diverse audience of physicists, engineers, andmathematicians, The Mathematical Structure of Classical and Relativistic Physics offers a valuable resource for studying the physical world. Written at alevel accessible t o graduate and advanced undergraduatestudents inmathematical physics, the book can be used as a research monograph across various areas of physics, engineering and mathematics, and as a supplemental text for a broad range of upper-level scientific coursew ork

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a complete revision of the part of Monin & Yaglom's famous two-volume work Statistical Fluid Mechanics: Mechanics of Turbulence that deals with the theory of laminar-flow instability and transition to turbulence.It includes the considera ble advances in the subject that have been made in the last 15 years or so. It is intended as a textbook for advanced graduate courses and as a reference for research students and professional researchworkers. The first two Chapters are an introduction to the mathematics, and the experimental results, for the instability of laminar (or inviscid) flows to infinitesimal (in practice small) disturbances. The third Chapter developsthis linear theory in more detail and describes its application to particular p roblems. Chapters 4 and 5 deal with instability to finite-amplitude disturbances: much of the material has previously been available only in researchpapers

Note:Many modern high-resolution schemes for Computational Fluid Dynamics trace their origins to the Flux-Corrected Transport (FCT) paradigm. FCT maintains monotonicity using a nonoscillatory low-order scheme to determine the boundsfor a constrained high- order approximation. This book begins with historical notes by J.P. Boris and D.L. Book who invented FCT in the early 1970s. The chapters that follow describe the design of fully multidimensional FCT algorithmsfor structured and unstructured grids, limiti ng for systems of conservation laws, and the use of FCT as an implicit subgrid scale model. The second edition presents 200 pages of additional material. The main highlights of the three newchapters include: FCT-constrained interpolation for Arbitrary Lag rangian-Eulerian methods, an optimization-based approach to flux correction, and FCT simulations of high-speed flows on overset grids. Addressing students andresearchers, as well as CFD practitioners, the book is focused on computational aspects and conta ins many numerical examples

Note:The proceedings represent the state of knowledge in the area of algorithmic differentiation (AD). The 31 contributed papers presented at the AD2012 conference cover the application of AD to many areas in science and engineeringas well as aspects of A D theory and its implementation in tools. For all papers the referees, selected from the program committee and the greater community, as well as the editors have emphasized accessibility of the presented ideasalso to non-AD experts. In the AD tools arena new implementations are introduced covering, for example, Java and graphical modeling environments or join the set of existing tools for Fortran. New developments in AD algorithms targetthe efficiency of matrix-operation derivatives, detection and exploit ation of sparsity, partial separability, the treatment of nonsmooth functions, and other high-level mathematical aspects of the numerical computations to bedifferentiated. Applications stem from the Earth sciences, nuclear engineering, fluid dynamics, and chemistry, to name just a few. In many cases the applications in a given area of science or engineering share characteristics thatrequire specific approaches to enable AD capabilities or provide an opportunity for efficiency gains in the derivative compu tation. The description of these characteristics and of the techniques for successfully using AD should makethe proceedings a valuable source of information for users of AD tools

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Mathematical Modeling for Complex Fluids and Flows provides researchers and engineering practitioners encountering fluid flows with state-of-the-art knowledge in continuum concepts and associated fluid dynamics. In doing so itsupplies the means to de sign mathematical models of these flows that adequately express the engineering physics involved. It exploits the implicit link between the turbulent flow of classical Newtonian fluids and the laminar andturbulent flow of non-Newtonian fluids such as thos e required in food processing and polymeric flows. The book develops a descriptive mathematical model articulated through continuum mechanics concepts for these non-Newtonian,viscoelastic fluids and turbulent flows. Each complex fluid and flow is examined in this continuum context as well as in combination with the turbulent flow of viscoelastic fluids. Some details are also explored via kinetic theory,especially viscoelastic fluids and their treatment with the Boltzmann equation. Both solution and modeli ng strategies for turbulent flows are laid out using continuum concepts, including a description of constructing polynomialrepresentations and accounting for non-inertial and curvature effects. Ranging from fundamental concepts to practical methodology, a nd including discussion of emerging technologies, this book is ideal for those requiring asingle-source assessment of current practice in this intricate yet vital field

Title:The Dirichlet Problem for Elliptic-Hyperbolic Equations of Keldysh Type [electronic resource]
Author(s): Thomas H Otway
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Partial differential equations of mixed elliptic-hyperbolic type arise in diverse areas of physics and geometry, including fluid and plasma dynamics, optics, cosmology, traffic engineering, projective geometry, geometricvariational theory, and the th eory of isometric embeddings. And yet even the linear theory of these equations is at a very early stage. This text examines various Dirichlet problems that can be formulated for Keldysh-type equations,one of the two main classes of linear elliptic-hyperb olic equations. Open boundary conditions (in which data are prescribed on only part of the boundary) and closed boundary conditions (in which data are prescribed on the entireboundary) are both considered. Emphasis is placed on the formulation of boundary conditions for which solutions can be shown to exist in an appropriate function space, and specific applications to plasma physics, optics, and analysison projective spaces are discussed

Note:Falling Liquid Films gives a detailed review of state-of-the-art theoretical, analytical and numerical methodologies, for the analysis of dissipative wave dynamics and pattern formation on the surface of a film falling down aplanar inclined substrate . This prototype is an open-flow hydrodynamic instability, that represents an excellent paradigm for the study of complexity in active nonlinear media with energy supply, dissipation and dispersion. It willalso be of use for a more general understanding o f specific events characterizing the transition to spatio-temporal chaos and weak/dissipative turbulence. Particular emphasis is given to low-dimensional approximations for such flowsthrough a hierarchy of modeling approaches, including equations of the b oundary-layer type, averaged formulations based on weighted residuals approaches and long-wave expansions. Whenever possible the link between theory and experimentis illustrated, and, as a further bridge between the two, the development of order-of-magnit ude estimates and scaling arguments is used to facilitate the understanding of basic, underlying physics. This monograph will appeal toadvanced graduate students in applied mathematics, science or engineering undertaking research on interfacial fluid mec hanics or studying fluid mechanics as part of their program. It will also be of use to researchers working on bothapplied, fundamental theoretical and experimental aspects of thin film flows, as well as engineers and technologists dealing with processes i nvolving isothermal or heated films. This monograph is largely self-contained and nobackground on interfacial fluid mechanics is assumed

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The subject of this book is the physics of vortices. A detailed analysis of the dynamics of vortices will be presented. The important topics of vorticity and molecular spin will be dealt with, including the electromagneticanalogy and quantization in superfluids. The effect of molecular spin on the dynamics of molecular nano-confined fluids using the extended Navier-Stokes equations will also be covered especially important to the theory andapplicability of nanofluidics and associated devices. The nan oscale boundary layer and nanoscale vortex core are regions of intense vorticity (molecular spin). It will be shown, based on molecular kinetic theory and thermodynamics,that the macroscopic (solid body) rotation must be accompanied by internal rotation o f the molecules. Electric polarization of the internal molecular rotations about the local rotation axis the Barnett effect occurs. In such aspin aligned system, major changes in the physical properties of the fluid result

Title:Turbulent Combustion Modeling [electronic resource] : Advances, New Trends and Perspectives

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:Computation of Viscous Incompressible Flows [electronic resource]

Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph is intended as a concise and self-contained guide to practitioners and graduate students for applying approaches in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to real-world problems that require a quantification of viscousincompressible flows. In various projects related to NASA missions, the authors have gained CFD expertise over many years by developing and utilizing tools especially related to viscous incompressible flows. They are looking at CFDfrom an engineering perspective, which is esp ecially useful when working on real-world applications. From that point of view, CFD requires two major elements, namely methods/algorithm and engineering/physical modeling. As for themethods, CFD research has been performed with great successes. In terms of modeling/simulation, mission applications require a deeper understanding of CFD and flow physics, which has only been debated in technical conferences and to alimited scope. This monograph fills the gap by offering in-depth examples for students and e ngineers to get useful information on CFD for their activities. The procedural details are given with respect to particular tasks from theauthors field of research, for example simulations of liquid propellant rocket engine subsystems, turbo-pumps and the blood circulations in the human brain as well as the design of artificial heart devices. However, those examplesserve as illustrations of computational and physical challenges relevant to many other fields. Unlike other books on incompressible flow simul ations, no abstract mathematics are used in this book. Assuming some basic CFD knowledge,readers can easily transfer the insights gained from specific CFD applications in engineering to their area of interest

Note:Chaos and nonlinear dynamics initially developed as a new emergent field with its foundation in physics and applied mathematics. The highly generic, interdisciplinary quality of the insights gained in the last few decades hasspawned myriad applicatio ns in almost all branches of science and technologyand even well beyond. Wherever quantitative modeling and analysis of complex, nonlinear phenomena is required, chaos theory and its methods can play a keyrole. This volume concentrates on reviewing the m ost relevant contemporary applications of chaotic nonlinear systems as they apply to the various cutting-edge branches of engineering. The book covers the theory as applied torobotics, electronic and communication engineering (for example chaos synchroniz ation and cryptography) as well as to civil and mechanical engineering, where its use in damage monitoring and control is explored). Featuringcontributions from active and leading research groups, this collection is ideal both as a reference and as a reci pe book full of tried and tested, successful engineering applications
