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:Physics of Societal Issues [electronic resource] : Calculations on National Security, Environment, and Energy
Author(s): David Hafemeister
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides the reader with essential tools needed to analyze complex societal issues and demonstrates the transition from physics to modern-day laws and treaties. This second edition features new equation-orientedmaterial and extensive data s ets drawing upon current information from experts in their fields. Problems to challenge the reader and extend discussion are presented on three timely issues: National Security:Weapons, Offense, Defense, Verification, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism Environment: Air/Water, Nuclear, Climate Change, EM Fields/Epidemiology Energy: Current Energy Situation, Buildings, SolarBuildings, Renewable Energy, Enhanced End-Use Efficiency, Transportation, Economics Praise for the first edition: This insight is n eeded in Congress and the Executive Branch. Hafemeister, a former Congressional fellow with wideWashington experience, has written a book for physicists, chemists and engineers who want to learn science and policy on weapons, energy, and the environment. Scientists who want to make a difference will want this book. RichardScribner, first Director, Congressional Science and Engineering Fellow Program, AAAS Hafemeister shows how much one can understand about nuclear weapons and missile issues through simpl e back-of-the-envelope calculations. He alsoprovides compact explanations of the partially successful attempts that have been made over the past 60 years to control these weapons of mass destruction. Hopefully, Physics of Societal Issues will help interes t a new generation ofphysicists in continuing this work. Frank von Hippel, Professor, Princeton, former Assistant Director, National Security, White House, OSTP Energy policy must be quantitative. People who don't calculate economic tradeoffs oftenchampi on simplistic hardware. The solution is more... nuclear power, or electric cars, or photovoltaics, etc. Some simple physics will s

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The goals of the 10th International Space Conference on Protection of Materials and Structures from Space Environment ICPMSE-10J, since its inception in 1992, have been to facilitate exchanges between members of the variousengineering and science dis ciplines involved in the development of space materials, including aspects of LEO, GEO and Deep Space environments, ground-based qualification, and in-flight experiments and lessons learned from operationalvehicles that are closely interrelated to discipl ines of the atmospheric sciences, solar-terrestrial interactions and space life sciences. The knowledge of environmental conditions on and around the Moon, Mars, Venus and the low Earthorbit as well as other possible candidates for landing such as asteroi ds have become an important issue, and protecting both hardware and human life from the effects of space environments has taken on a new meaning in light of theincreased interest in space travel and colonization of other planets. And while many material e xperiments have been carried out on the ground and in open space in the last 50 years (LDEF, MEEP, SARE, MISSE, AOP, DSPSE, ESEM, EURECA,HST, MDIM, MIS, MPID, MPAC and SEED), many questions regarding the environmental impact of space on materials remain e ither poorly understood or unanswered. The coming generations of scientists will have to continue this work andtackle new challenges, continuing to build the level of confidence humans will need to continue the colonization of space. It is hoped that the proceedings of the ICPMSE-10J presented in this book will constitute a small contributionto doing so

Note:Introduction to Global Optimization Exploiting Space-Filling Curves provides an overview of classical and new results pertaining to the usage of space-filling curves in global optimization. The authors look at a family ofderivative-free numerical alg orithms applying space-filling curves to reduce the dimensionality of the global optimization problem along with a number of unconventional ideas, such as adaptive strategies for estimating Lipschitzconstant, balancing global and local information to acce lerate the search. Convergence conditions of the described algorithms are studied in depth and theoretical considerations are illustrated through numerical examples. This workalso contains a code for implementing space-filling curves that can be used for constructing new global optimization algorithms. Basic ideas from this text can be applied to a number of problems including problems with multiextremaland partially defined constraints and non-redundant parallel computations can be organized. Professors, students, researchers, engineers, and other professionals in the fields of pure mathematics, nonlinear sciences studying fractals,operations research, management science, industrial and applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, economics, and t he environmental sciences will find this title useful .

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book comprises an assembly of benchmarks and examples for porous media mechanics collected over the last twenty years. Analysis of thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes is essential to many applications inenvironmental engineering, su ch as geological waste deposition, geothermal energy utilisation, carbon capture and storage, water resources management, hydrology, even climate chance. In order to assess the feasibility as well as thesafety of geotechnical applications, process-based m odelling is the only tool to put numbers, i.e. to quantify future scenarios. This charges a huge responsibility concerning the reliability of computational tools. Benchmarking is anappropriate methodology to verify the quality of modelling tools based on best practices. Moreover, benchmarking and code comparison foster community efforts. The benchmark book is part of the OpenGeoSys initiative - an open sourceproject to share knowledge and experience in environmental analysis and scientific computation

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is the first to identify and review the new field of study, sociology and complexity scienceor SACS for short. SACS is comprised of five cutting-edge areas of research: computational sociology, the British-basedSchool of Complexity (BBC), c omplex social network analysis (CSNA), sociocybernetics and the Luhmann School of Complexity (LSC). Together, these five areas represent the latest development in complexity science and sociological systemsthinking, offering researchers a powerful, new se t of tools for addressing the growing complexity of sociological inquiry. This book also showcases a new method for modeling social systems, called the SACS Toolkit. The SACS Toolkitcomes with a theoretical framework (social complexity theory), procedural algorithm (assemblage) and recommended toolset for modeling social systems (qualitatively, historically or numerically) from the ground-up. In fact, this bookuses the SACS Toolkit to review the new field of SACS. The third feature of this book is its com pendium of maps, graphs and figuresall located in one chapter. Demonstrating the visual ingenuity of complexity science method, thiscompendium provides a picture-book tour of the new field of SACS. Finally, this book comes with a companion websitean inter net resource for exploring the new science of complexity and its intersection with sociology and fordownloading the maps (in color) used in this book. Useful for teachers, students and researchers, this book articulates a possible future for social scient ific inquiry in the 21st century

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history biography, chronology, political and economic background with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics ofscience. The 5800-page Encyclo pedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopoliticalboundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia relates (as the author himself puts it) not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done. The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists , engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing:mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, eart h and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry),associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and mo re). The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas inthe leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 Science Progress Reports detailing scien tific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered fromthe wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times

Note:Computational Neuroscience is a burgeoning field of research where only the combined effort of neuroscientists, biologists, psychologists, physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and other specialists, e.g.from linguistics and medi cine, seem to be able to expand the limits of our knowledge. The present volume is an introduction, largely from the physicists' perspective, to the subject matter with in-depth contributions by systemneuroscientists. A conceptual model for complex networ ks of neurons is introduced that incorporates many important features of the real brain, such as various types of neurons, various brain areas, inhibitory and excitatory couplingand the plasticity of the network. The computational implementation on superc omputers, which is introduced and discussed in detail in this book, will enable the readers to modify and adapt the algortihm for their own research.Worked-out examples of applications are presented for networks of Morris-Lecar neurons to model the cortic al connections of a cat's brain, supported with data from experimental studies. This book is particularly suited for graduatestudents and nonspecialists from related fields with a general science background, looking for a substantial but hands-on introduc tion to the subject matter

Note:The ultimate introduction, textbook, and reference on decoherence and the quantum-to-classical transition. This detailed but accessible text describes the concepts, formalism, interpretation, and experimental observation ofdecoherence and explains ho w decoherence is responsible for the emergence, from the realm of quantum mechanics, of the classical world of our experience. Topics include: Foundational problems at the quantumclassical border The role of the environment and entanglement Environment- induced loss of coherence and superselection Scattering-induced decoherence and spatial localization Master equations Decoherence models Experimentalrealization of Schrdinger kittens and their decoherence Quantum computing, quantum error correction, and decoherence-free subspaces Implications of decoherence for interpretations of quantum mechanics and for themeasurement problem Decoherence in the brain. Written in a lucid and concise style that is accessible to all readers with a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics, this stimulating book tells the classical from quantum storyin a comprehensive and coherent manner that brings together the foundational, technical, and experimental aspects of decoherence. It will be an indispensable resource for newc omers and experts alike. Reads like a bestseller. Anengaging and intuitive treatment of a very important subject, combining the scope of a monograph with the clarity of a textbook and the intellectual excitement of a Sherlock Holmes adventure. Wojciech Zu rek, Los Alamos Everyone whoworks in the borderlands between quantum and classical physics, from philosophers of physics to quantum-computer technologists, will find much here to stimulate and inspire. Gerard Milburn, University of Queensland A thorough,r eadable, and very useful account of decoherence theory and its diverse applications. Valuable as a text and as a reference work, both for graduate

Note:The paradigms of dynamic games play an important role in the development of multi-agent models in engineering, economics, and management science. The applicability of their concepts stems from the ability to encompass situationswith uncertainty, inco mplete information, fluctuating coalition structure, and coupled constraints imposed on the strategies of all the players. This bookan outgrowth of the 10th International Symposium on Dynamic Gamespresentscurrent developments of the theory of dynamic game s and its applications to various domains, in particular energy-environment economics and management sciences. The volume uses dynamic game models of various sorts to approach and solveseveral problems pertaining to pursuit-evasion, marketing, finance, cl imate and environmental economics, resource exploitation, as well as auditing and tax evasions. In addition, it includes some chapters on cooperative games, whichare increasingly drawing dynamic approaches to their classical solutions. The book is themati cally organized into six parts: * zero-sum game theory * pursuit-evasion games * games of coalitions * new interpretations of theinterdependence between different members of a social group * original applications to energy-environment economics * manageme nt science applications This work will serve as a state-of-the art account of recent advances in dynamic gametheory and its applications for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in applied mathematics, engineering, economics, as well as envir onmental and management sciences

Note:Operations Research emerged as a quantitative approach to problem-solving in World War II. Its founders, who were physicists, mathematicians, and engineers, quickly found peace-time uses for this new field. Moreover, we can saythat Operations Researc h (OR) was born in the same incubator as computer science, and through the years, it has spawned many new disciplines, including systems engineering, health care management, and transportation science.Fundamentally, Operations Research crosses discipline domains to seek solutions on a range of problems and benefits diverse disciplines from finance to bioengineering. Many disciplines routinely use OR methods. Many scientificresearchers, engineers, and others will find the methodological presentations in th is book useful and helpful in their problem-solving efforts. ORs strengths are modeling, analysis, and algorithm design. It provides a quantitativefoundation for a broad spectrum of problems, from economics to medicine, from environmental control to sport s, from e-commerce to computational geometry. The primary purpose of TUTORIALS ON EMERGING METHODOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS INOPERATIONS RESEARCH is to provide a reference for practitioners and academics who seek a clear, concise presentation of developing methodologies, hence providing themselves with the capability to apply these methods to new problems.The field of Operations Research is always changing. Its changes are driven by the technology it uses and that it extends, and the applications that it af fects. Relevant changes in the field have a permanent effect on the conduct of ORand are vital to anyone who wants to be current in the field. Each chapter presents a new developing methodology in Operations Research. Each chapter examines each topic with clarity and depth, and organizes the examination around thefollowing questions: (1) What the developing methodology basically is about? (2) Why is it important? and (3) Where can I learn more?
