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

Title:Slow Viscous Flow [electronic resource]
Author(s): William E Langlois
Michel O Deville
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Leonardo wrote, 'Mechanics is the paradise of the mathematical sciences, because by means of it one comes to the fruits of mathematics' replace 'Mechanics' by 'Fluid mechanics' and here we are. - from the Preface to theSecond Edition Although the ex ponential growth of computer power has advanced the importance of simulations and visualization tools for elaborating new models, designs and technologies, the discipline of fluid mechanics is still large,and turbulence in flows remains a challenging prob lem in classical physics. Like its predecessor, the revised and expanded Second Edition of this book addresses the basic principles of fluid mechanics and solves fluid flow problemswhere viscous effects are the dominant physical phenomena. Much progress h as occurred in the nearly half a century that has passed since the edition of 1964. As predicted, aspects of hydrodynamics once considered offbeat have risen toimportance. For example, the authors have worked on problems where variations in viscosity and surface tension cannot be ignored. The advent of nanotechnology has broadened interest in the hydrodynamics of thin films, and hydromagneticeffects and radiative heat transfer are routinely encountered in materials processing. This monograph develops the basic equations, in the three most important coordinate systems, in a way that makes it easy to incorporate thesephenomena into the theory. The book originally described by Prof. Langlois as a monograph on theoretical hydrodynamics, written in the languag e of applied mathematics offers considerable new coverage including the second principleof thermodynamics, Boussinesq approximation, time dependent flows, Marangoni convection, Kovasznay flow, plane periodic solutions, Hele-Shaw cells, Stokeslets, rotlets , finite element methods, Wannier flow, corner eddies, and analysisof the Stokes operator

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The topic of the 2010 Abel Symposium, hosted at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, Oslo, was Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, the study of which is of fundamental importance in mathematics and in almost all ofnatural sciences, eco nomics, and engineering. This area of mathematics is currently in the midst of an unprecedented development worldwide. Differential equations are used to model phenomena of increasing complexity, and in areas thathave traditionally been outside the realm of mathematics. New analytical tools and numerical methods are dramatically improving our understanding of nonlinear models. Nonlinearity gives rise to novel effects reflected in the appearanceof shock waves, turbulence, material defects, etc., and offers challenging mathematical problems. On the other hand, new mathematical developments provide new insight in many applications. These proceedings present a selection of thelatest exciting results by world leading researchers

Title:Mean Field Theories and Dual Variation [electronic resource]
Author(s): Takashi Suzuki
Date:2009
Publisher:Paris : Atlantis Press
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:A mathematical theory is introduced in this book to unify a large class of nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) models for better understanding and analysis of the physical and biological phenomena they represent. Theso-called mean field app roximation approach is adopted to describe the macroscopic phenomena from certain microscopic principles for this unified mathematical formulation. Two key ingredients for this approach are the notions ofduality according to the PDE weak solutions and hie rarchy for revealing the details of the otherwise hidden secrets, such as physical mystery hidden between particle density and field concentration, quantized blow upbiological mechanism sealed in chemotaxis systems, as well as multi-scale mathematical exp lanations of the SmoluchowskiPoisson model in non-equilibrium thermodynamics, two-dimensional turbulence theory, self-dual gauge theory, andso forth. This book shows how and why many different nonlinear problems are inter-connected in terms of the propert ies of duality and scaling, and the way to analyze them mathematically

Title:Quality and Reliability of Large-Eddy Simulations [electronic resource]
Author(s): Johan Meyers

Pierre Sagaut
Date:2008
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Computational resources have developed to the level that, for the first time, it is becoming possible to apply large-eddy simulation (LES) to turbulent flow problems of realistic complexity. Many examples can be found intechnology and in a variety of natural flows. This puts issues related to assessing, assuring, and predicting the quality of LES into the spotlight. Several LES studies have been published in the past, demonstrating a high level ofaccuracy with which turbulent flow predictions can be attained, without having to resort to the excessive requirements on computational resources imposed by direct numerical simulations. However, the setup and use of turbulent flowsimulations requires a profound knowledge of fluid mechanics, numerical techni ques, and the application under consideration. The susceptibility of large-eddy simulations to errors in modelling, in numerics, and in the treatment ofboundary conditions, can be quite large due to nonlinear accumulation of different contributions over t ime, leading to an intricate and unpredictable situation. A full understanding of the interacting error dynamics in large-eddysimulations is still lacking. To ensure the reliability of large-eddy simulations for a wide range of industrial users, the devel opment of clear standards for the evaluation, prediction, and control of simulation errors in LES issummoned. The workshop on Quality and Reliability of Large-Eddy Simulations, held October 22-24, 2007 in Leuven, Belgium (QLES2007), provided one of the fi rst platforms specifically addressing these aspects of LES

Title:Large Eddy Simulation for Incompressible Flows [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Pierre Sagaut
Date:2006
Edition:Third Edition
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The first and most exhaustive work of its kind devoted entirely to the subject, Large Eddy Simulation presents a comprehensive account and a unified view of this young but very rich discipline. LES is the only efficient techniquefor approaching high Reynolds numbers when simulating industrial, natural or experimental configurations. The author concentrates on incompressible fluids and chooses his topics in treating with care both the mathematical ideas andtheir applications. The book addresses resear chers as well as graduate students and engineers. The second edition was a greatly enriched version motivated both by the increasing theoretical interest in LES and the increasing number ofapplications. Two entirely new chapters were devoted to the coupli ng of LES with multiresolution multidomain techniques and to the new hybrid approaches that relate the LES procedures to the classical statistical methods based on theReynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes equations. This 3rd edition adds various sections to the text such as a careful error analysis of filtered density function models and multiscale models. It also contains two new chapters dealing withthe mathematical representations of LES and the prediction of active and passive scalar dynamics, which are of considerable interest for engineering and geophysical modeling. The part on geophysical flow has much to offer on a criticalcurrent issue. To quote from the foreword to the third edition written by Charles Meneveau: ... this meticulously assembled and sig nificantly enlarged description of the many aspects of LES will be a most welcome addition to thebookshelves of scientists and engineers in fluid mechanics, LES practitioners, and students of turbulence in general.

Note:Large eddy simulation (LES) is a method of scientific computation seeking to predict the dynamics of organized structures in turbulent flows by approximating local, spatial averages of the flow. Since its birth in 1970, LES hasundergone an explosive development and has matured into a highly-developed computational technology. It uses the tools of turbulence theory and the experience gained from practical computation. This book focuses on the mathematicalfoundations of LES and its models and provides a connection between the powerful tools of applied mathematics, partial differential equations and LES. Thus, it is concerned with fundamental aspects not treated so deeply in the otherbooks in the field, aspects such as well-posedness of the models, thei r energy balance and the connection to the Leray theory of weak solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations. The authors give a mathematically informed and detailedtreatment of an interesting selection of models, focusing on issues connected with understandi ng and expanding the correctness and universality of LES. This volume offers a useful entry point into the field for PhD students in appliedmathematics, computational mathematics and partial differential equations. Non-mathematicians will appreciate it as a reference that introduces them to current tools and advances in the mathematical theory of LES
