Title  Turbulence???an Odyssey : Origins and Evolution of a Research Field at the Interface of Science and Engineering 
Author(s)  Eckert, Michael 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVI, 208 p. 32 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Turbulence is a research field where high expectations have met with recurrent frustration. It is a common perception among physicists, mathematicians and engineers that there is a "big mystery" behind the phenomenon of turbulence. Its history has also remained anything but well researched. Unlike topics such as quantum theory, which began to attract physics historians as long as fifty years ago, turbulence has  until now  received only little professional historical investigation. In this book, which complements his earlier SpringerBrief "The Turbulence Problem", the author sketches the history of turbulence from the vantage point of its roots (Part I), the basic concepts (Part II) and the formation of a scientific community that regarded turbulence as a research field in its own right (Part III). From this perspective turbulence research appears to undertake an odyssey through uncharted territories. The book follows this development up until a conference in Marseille in the year 1961, which marked the inauguration of turbulence in the words of its organizer as ???a new science???. The epilogue contains some observations about turbulence research since 1961. This book provides a rich source of information for all those interested in the history of this major field of basic and applied science

Title  The Physics of Dew, Breath Figures and Dropwise Condensation 
Author(s)  Beysens, Daniel 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVII, 462 p. 217 illus., 185 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this book, the author focuses on the physics behind dew, breaths figures, and dropwise condensation phenomena to introduce scientists, engineers and students to the many original processes involved in condensation. Consisting of 15 Chapters, 18 Appendices and over 500 references, the reader learns the needed theoretical backgrounds and formulae to understand the complexity of dropwise condensation. Heat and mass transfer, nucleation and growth on various substrates are considered (solid, liquid, plastic, undergoing phase change or micropatterned substrates). The particular role of thermal or geometrical discontinuities where growth can be enhanced or reduced, dynamical aspects of selfdiffusion, problems related to drop collection by gravity and the optics of dropwise condensation are all discussed. Although the content mainly deals with condensation from humid air, it can readily be generalized to condensation of any substance. The specificities of pure vapor condensation (e.g. steam) are also examined. Numerous images are provided within the text to illustrate the physics. This book is meant for those studying or researching dew and dropwise condensation, but also for individuals wishing to develop their knowledge on the subject.

Title  Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics : For Scientists and Engineers 
Author(s)  Chassaing, Patrick 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXI, 570 p. 218 illus., 207 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook provides a coherent and structured overview of fluid mechanics, a discipline concerned with many natural phenomena and at the very heart of the most diversified industrial applications and human activities. The balance between phenomenological analysis, physical conceptualization and mathematical formulation serve both as a unifying educational marker and as a methodological guide to the three parts of the work. The thermomechanical motion equations of a homogeneous singlephase fluid are established, from which flow models (perfect fluid, viscous) and motion classes (isovolume, barotropic, irrotational, etc.) are derived. Incompressible, potential flows and compressible flows, both in an isentropic evolution and shock, of an ideal inviscid fluid are addressed in the second part. The viscous fluid is the subject of the last one, with the creeping motion regime and the laminar, dynamic and thermal boundary layer. Historical perspectives are included whenever they enrich the understanding of modern concepts. Many examples, chosen for their pedagogical relevance, are dealt with in exercises. The book is intended as a teaching tool for undergraduate students, wishing to acquire a first command of fluid mechanics, as well as graduates in advanced courses and engineers in other fields, concerned with completing what is sometimes a scattered body of knowledge

Title  Molecular Theory of Nematic (and Other) Liquid Crystals : An Introduction 
Author(s)  van der Schoot, Paul 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XI, 105 p. 28 illus., 25 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a didactic derivation of the main theories of thermotropic and lyotropic liquid crystals, revealing the common moleculartheoretic framework that underpins both theories. This unified context will help young researchers in coming to grips with the basics of the simplest of liquid crystals, being uniaxial nematic liquid crystals, easing them into the intricacies of more complex forms of such materials irrespective of whether they are thermotropic or lyotropic. The coverage provides a theoretical understanding of the phase behaviour, that is, what drives molecules and particles to spontaneously align themselves, as well as an appreciation of the role of entropy, energy and so on. The focus here is on the main theories for the isotropicnematic transition, being the MaierSaupe and the Onsager theories, and how they are derived from a common description, known as (classical) density functional theory (DFT). This book will be a valuable resource for senior undergraduate and graduate students, and experimentalists and engineers who feel intimidated by more formal or rigorous theoretical accounts and textbooks. Exercises at the end of each chapter help the reader to apply the basic concepts also to other types of liquid crystal, in particular the smectic liquid crystal

Title  Intermittency Equation for Transitional Flow 
Author(s)  Juntasaro, Ekachai 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  X, 84 p. 36 illus., 35 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides the intermittency equation that is derived a priori. Since the intermittency equation is mathematically obtained, the resulting gamma transition model no longer requires any extra parameters and terms to explicitly account for freestream turbulence and pressure gradient like the previous transition models. Instead, the present gamma transition model can naturally predict natural transition and effects of freestream turbulence and pressure gradient on the transition process. Furthermore, the present gamma transition model requires much fewer model constants than the previous transition models. The book is beneficial for CFD researchers in industry and academia who confront modern complex applications involving simultaneously laminar, transitional and turbulent flow regimes, and ideally relevant to graduate students in applied physics, applied mathematics and engineering who are interested in the world of laminartoturbulent transition modeling in CFD, or would like to further advance more realistic transition models in the future

Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer US, 2022. 
Description  245 illus., 142 illus. in color. eReference : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume of the Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science, Second Edition, focuses on current challenges in the field from materials and mechanics to applications of statistical and nonlinear physics in the life sciences. Challenges today are mostly in the realm of nonequilibrium systems, although certain equilibrium systems also present serious hurdles. Where possible, pairwise articles focus on a single topic, one from a theoretical perspective and the other from an experimental one, providing valuable insights. In other cases, theorists and experimentalists have collaborated on a single article. Coverage includes both quantum and classical systems, and emphasizes 1) mature fields that are not covered in the current specialist literature, (2) topics that fall through the cracks in disciplinary journals/books, or (3) developing areas where the knowledge base is large and robust and upon which future developments will depend. The result is an invaluable resource for condensed matter physicists, material scientists, engineers and life scientists

Title  Elements of Classical Plasticity Theory 
Author(s)  ??chsner, Andreas 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIII, 105 p. 62 illus., 34 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This monograph provides a compact introduction into the classical, i.e. rateindependent, plasticity theory. Starting from the engineering stressstrain diagram, the concept of elastic and elastoplastic material behavior is introduced, as well as the concept of uniaxial and multiaxial stress states. Continuum mechanical modeling in the elastoplastic range requires, in regards to the constitutive equation, in addition to the elastic law (e.g. Hooke???s law), a yield condition, a flow rule and a hardening rule. These basic equations are thoroughly introduced and explained for onedimensional stress states. Considering threedimensional plasticity, different sets of stress invariants to characterize the stress matrix and the decomposition of the stress matrix in its hydrostatic and deviatoric part are introduced. Furthermore, the concept of the yield condition, flow rule and hardening rule is generalized for multiaxial stress states. Some typical yield conditions are introduced and their graphical representation in different stress spaces is discussed in detail. The book concludes with an introduction in the elastoplastic finite element simulation of mechanical structures. In the context of numerical approximation methods, the socalled predictorcorrector methods are used to integrate the constitutive equations. This is again introduced in detail based on onedimensional stress states and afterwards generalized to the threedimensional case.

Title  Dynamics of Compressible Fluids : A Textbook 
Author(s)  Girin, Oleksandr 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXII, 304 p. 130 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Compressibility is a property inherent in any material, but it does not always manifest itself. Experience suggests that it affects the medium motion only at velocities comparable to the speed of sound. Why do we study compressibility? It turns out that in order to calculate the aircraft streamlining or the internal flow in its engine, or the shell muzzle velocity, or the dynamic load of a shock wave from an accidental blast on a structural element, and in many other cases it is necessary to know and understand the laws of the Dynamics of Compressible Media (DCM) and be able to apply them in practice. This textbook is designed to help readers achieve this goal and learn the basics of DCM. This field of knowledge is hightech and always focuses on the future: modern developments of hypersonic aircraft, designing more advanced structural elements for airplanes and helicopters, calculating the car aerodynamics, etc. Paradoxes have always given impetus to the search for new technological devices. Unusual effects in DCM include the flow chocking in supersonic outflow from reservoirs (Sect.2.2); the shock wave formation inside an initially smooth flow (Sect.5.3); the generation of a "spallation saucer" of armor inside a tank when a shell hits it (Sect.5.5); the dogleg of a plane discontinuity surface at shockwave reflection from a rigid wall (Sec.8.1). The way to understand these and other effects is through the creation of quantitative models of a moving compressible fluid
