Fluid Mechanics (Dover Books on Physics)
"The mixture of prose, mathematics, and beautiful illustrations is particul arly well chosen."  American Scientist This monumental text by a noted authority in the field is specially designe d to provide an orderly structured introduction to fluid mechanics, a field all too often seen by students as an amorphous mass of disparate equations instead of the coherent body of theory and application it should be. In ad dition, the book will help upgrade students' mathematical skills as they le arn the fundamentals of fluid mechanics. The text presents a unified method of analysis that poses fluid mechanics p roblems in precise mathematical language without becoming stiff or unnecess arily rigorous. This method involves three steps: First, the text carefully defines each problem so the student knows what is given and what is missin g. Second, each chapter treats the physical aspects of the problems so the student can visualize how things work in the real world. Third, the text re presents the physical model by appropriate mathematical symbols and operato rs, collects these into equations, and then solves them. The result is a su perb learning and teaching process that covers everything the engineer need s to know  nature of fluids, hydrostatics, differential and integral equat ions, dimensional analysis, viscous flows, and other topics  while allowin g students to see each element in its relation to the whole. Each chapter contains numerous examples incorporating problemsolving techniques, demonstrations to illustrate topical material, study questions, boxed equations of significant results, appropriate references to supplementary materia.

Thermoelasticity with Finite Wave Speeds (Oxford Mathematical Monographs)
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Generalized dynamic thermoelasticity is a vital area of research in continu um mechanics, free of the classical paradox of infinite propagation speeds of thermal signals in Fouriertype heat conduction. Besides that paradox, t he classical dynamic thermoelasticity theory offers either unsatisfactory o r poor descriptions of a solid's response at low temperatures or to a fast transient loading (say, due to short laser pulses). Several models have bee n developed and intensively studied over the past four decades, yet this bo ok, which aims to provide a point of reference in the field, is the first m onograph on the subject since the 1970s. Thermoelasticity with Finite Wave Speeds focuses on dynamic thermoelasticity governed by hyperbolic equations, and, in particular, on the two leading theories: that of LordShulman (with one relaxation time), and that of GreenLindsay (with two relaxation times). While the resulting field equations are linear partial differential ones, the complexity of the theories is due to the coupling of mechanical with thermal fields. The mathematical aspects of both theories  existence and uniqueness theorems, domain of influence theorems, convolutional variational principles  as well as with the methods for various initial/boundary value problems are explained and illustrated in detail and several applications of generalized thermoelasticity are reviewed.

Mechanics (Dover Books on Physics)
First published over 40 years ago, this work has achieved the status of a c lassic among introductory texts on mechanics. Den Hartog is known for his l ively, discursive and often witty presentations of all the fundamental mate rial of both statics and dynamics (and considerable more advanced material) in new, original ways that provide students with insights into mechanical relationships that other books do not always succeed in conveying. On the o ther hand, the work is so replete with engineering applications and actual design problems that it is as valuable as a reference to the practicing eng ineer as it is as a text or refresher for the general engineering student. Mechanics is not a "heavy" book, despite the amount of material it covers a nd the clarity and exactness with which it treats this material. It is undo ubtedly one of the most readable texts in the field. More than 550 drawings and diagrams in the regular text and in the highly praised 112page sectio n of problems and answers further contribute to its lucidity and value. The emphasis is consistently on illuminating fundamental principles and in sho wing how they are embodied in a high number of real engineering and design problems concerning trusses, loaded cables, beams, jacks, hoists, brakes, c antilevers, springs, balances, pendulums, projectiles, cranks, linkages, pr opellers, turbines, fly ball engine governors, hydraulic couplings, antiro ll devices, gyroscopes, and hundreds of other mechanical systems and device s. Chapters cover Discrete Coplanar Forces, Conditions of Equilibrium, Distributed Forces, Trusses and Cables, Beams, Friction, Space Forces, The Met.

Quantitative Phase Field Modelling of Solidification
This book presents a study of phase field modelling of solidification in me tal alloy systems. It is divided in two main themes. The first half discuss es several classes of quantitative multiorder parameter phase field models for multicomponent alloy solidification. These are derived in grand poten tial ensemble, thus tracking solidification in alloys through the evolution of the chemical potentials of solute species rather than the more commonly used solute concentrations. The use of matched asymptotic analysis for mak ing phase field models quantitative is also discussed at length, and derive d in detail in order to make this somewhat abstract topic accessible to stu dents. The second half of the book studies the application of phase field m odelling to rapid solidification where solute trapping and interface underc ooling follow highly nonequilibrium conditions. In this limit, matched asy mptotic analysis is used to map phase field evolution equations onto the co ntinuous growth model, which is generally accepted as a sharpinterface des cription of solidification at rapid solidification rates. This book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in mater ials science and materials engineering. Key Features Presents a clear path to develop quantitative multiphase and multicompone nt phase field models for solidification and other phase transformation kin etics Derives and discusses the quantitative nature of the model formulations thr ough matched interface asymptotic analysis Explores a framework for quantitative treatment of rapid solidification to control solute trapping and solute drag dynamics Editori.

The Diffuse Interface Approach in Materials Science: Thermodynamic Concepts and Applications of PhaseField Models / Edition 1
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The book is devoted to the application of phasefield (diffuse interface) models in materials science. Phasefield modeling emerged only recently as a theoretical approach to tackle questions concerning the evolution of materials microstructure, the relation between microstructure and materials properties and the transformation and evolution of different phases. This volume brings together the essential thermodynamic ideas as well as the essential mathematical tools to derive phasefield model equations. Starting from an elementary level such that any graduate student familiar with the basic concepts of partial differential equations can follow, it shows how advances in the field of phasefield modeling will come from a combination of thermodynamic, mathematical and computational tools. Also included are two extensive examples of the application of phasefield models in materials science.

The Green Function Method in Statistical Mechanics (Dover Books on Physics)
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. This concise monograph is devoted to techniques of solving manybody proble ms in physics using the quantummechanical Green function method. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of physics, it requires s ome familiarity with the basic theory of quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. Focusing on the general method, the treatment begins by establishing the connection between the Green functions and the thermodynamic and kinetic characteristics of a system. Subsequent chapters illustrate the method and apply it to different problems in the physics of condensed media, including the theory of electron plasmas in solids, electronphonon interactions, and ferromagnetism at finite temperatures. Seven helpful Appendixes offer supplementary information.

Strength of Materials (Dover Books on Physics)
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Among introductory texts on the strength of materials, this work is particu larly distinguished. It was originally developed by Professor Den Hartog to meet the needs of engineering students at M.I.T. for a sound yet lucid fir st course in strength of materials. As such it has also enjoyed wide popula rity in engineering schools throughout the world. But the book was remarkable in a number of other ways, so that it has become one of the favorite refresher and reference works for engineers as well as a popular selfstudy text. Perhaps the chief reason for this is that in addition to all the customary elementary material on the subject (i.e., clear instructions to the fundamentals of tension, torsion, bending, compound stresses, deflection of beams, etc.) it also contains a considerable amount of more advanced material concerning methods of great practical value to working engineers which are not usually included in introductory texts. This material is presented in starred sections (which may be omitted on a first reading without interrupting the flow of the presentation) and includes a full treatment of the Mohr circle and its application to the determination of moments of inertia and strains as well as stresses; a lucid elementary presentation of the theory of the center of shear; and one of the few elementary presentations of the theory of the center of shear; and one of the few elementary discussions of the "Myosotis" method of calculating beam deflections, a method which often pos.
