Title  Thermal Transport in Low Dimensions : From Statistical Physics to Nanoscale Heat Transfer 
Author(s)  Lepri, Stefano 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XI, 411 p. 117 illus., 90 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Understanding nonequilibrium properties of classical and quantum manyparticle systems is one of the goals of contemporary statistical mechanics. Besides its own interest for the theoretical foundations of irreversible thermodynamics(e.g. of the Fourier's law of heat conduction), this topic is also relevant to develop innovative ideas for nanoscale thermal management with possible future applications to nanotechnologies and effective energetic resources. The first part of the volume (Chapters 16) describes the basic models, the phenomenology and the various theoretical approaches to understand heat transport in lowdimensional lattices (1D e 2D). The methods described will include equilibrium and nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations, hydrodynamic and kinetic approaches and the solution of stochastic models. The second part (Chapters 710) deals with applications to nano and microscale heat transfer, as for instance phononic transport in carbonbased nanomaterials, including the prominent case of nanotubes and graphene. Possible future developments on heat flow control and thermoelectric energy conversion will be outlined. This volume aims at being the first step for graduate students and researchers entering the field as well as a reference for the community of scientists that, from different backgrounds (theoretical physics, mathematics, material sciences and engineering), has grown in the recent years around those themes

Title  Dynamical Analysis of NonFourier Heat Conduction and Its Application in Nanosystems 
Author(s)  Dong, Yuan 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XVIII, 134 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis studies the general heat conduction law, irreversible thermodynamics and the size effect of thermal conductivity exhibited in nanosystems from the perspective of recently developed thermomass theory. The derivation bridges the microscopic phonon Boltzmann equation and macroscopic continuum mechanics. Key concepts such as entropy production, temperature and the Onsager reciprocal relation are revisited in the case of nonFourier heat conduction. Lastly, useful expressions are extracted from the picture of phonon gas dynamics and are used to successfully predict effective thermal conductivity in nanosystems

Title  The Theory of Laser Materials Processing : Heat and Mass Transfer in Modern Technology 
Author(s)  Dowden, John;Schulz, Wolfgang 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVII, 432 p. 177 illus., 15 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The revised edition of this important reference volume presents an expanded overview of the analytical and numerical approaches employed when exploring and developing modern laser materials processing techniques. The book shows how general principles can be used to obtain insight into laser processes, whether derived from fundamental physical theory or from direct observation of experimental results. The book gives readers an understanding of the strengths and limitations of simple numerical and analytical models that can then be used as the startingpoint for more elaborate models of specific practical, theoretical or commercial value. Following an introduction to the mathematical formulation of some relevant classes of physical ideas, the core of the book consists of chapters addressing key applications in detail: cutting, keyhole welding, drilling, arc and hybrid laserarc welding, hardening, cladding and forming. The second edition includes a new a chapter on glass cutting with lasers, as employed in the display industry. A further addition is a chapter on metamodelling, whose purpose is to construct fast, simple and reliable models based on appropriate sources of information. It then makes it easy to explore data visually and is a convenient interactive tool for scientists to improve the quality of their models and for developers when designing their processes. As in the first edition, the book ends with an updated introduction to comprehensive numerical simulation. Although the book focuses on laser interactions with materials, many of the principles and methods explored can be applied to thermal modelling in a variety of different fields and at different power levels. It is aimed principally however at academic and industrial researchers and developers in the field of laser technology

Title  LowLoss Storage and Handling of Cryogenic Liquids : The Application of Cryogenic Fluid Dynamics 
Author(s)  Bostock, Thomas D;Scurlock, Ralph G 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XXV, 170 p. 42 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The revised second edition of this practical book reviews the fundamentals of cryogenic liquid behaviour in small and large scale storage systems. The text is based on research findings on the convective and evaporative behaviour of cryogenic fluids, aimed at improving the design, construction and operation of lowloss cryogenic liquid storage systems, with a view to minimising cost and improving operational safety. Since the first edition was published in 2006, the breadth of cryogenic applications and the modelling of cryogenic fluid dynamics (CFD) have expanded in several directions. In this second edition, most chapters have been extended to introduce discussions of these new applications and their safety and energy economy. These include advances in the modelling of CFD required in, for example, the design of miniature cryocoolers and condensers and reboilers, largescale cryogenic liquid mixture properties and their stability, and the understanding that hazards and safety problems in the public domain increase with the scaling up of cryogenic systems. With helpful summaries at the end of each chapter, the book is an essential reference for anyone working on the design and operation of cryogenic liquid storage and transportation systems
