Title  Computational Acoustics of Noise Propagation in Fluids  Finite and Boundary Element Methods 
Author(s)  Marburg, Steffen;Nolte, Bodo 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2008. 
Description  XIII, 578 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Among numerical methods applied in acoustics, the Finite Element Method (FEM) is normally favored for interior problems whereas the Boundary Element Method (BEM) is quite popular for exterior ones. That is why this valuable reference provides a complete survey of methods for computational acoustics, namely FEM and BEM. It demonstrates that both methods can be effectively used in the complementary cases. The chapters by wellknown authors are evenly balanced: 10 chapters on FEM and 10 on BEM. An initial conceptual chapter describes the derivation of the wave equation and supplies a unified approach to FEM and BEM for the harmonic case. A categorization of the remaining chapters and a personal outlook complete this introduction. In what follows, both FEM and BEM are discussed in the context of very different problems. Firstly, this comprises numerical issues, e.g. convergence, multifrequency solutions and highly efficient methods; and secondly, solutions techniques for the particular difficulties that arise with external problems, e.g. discussion of absorbing boundaries for FEM and treatment of the nonuniqueness problem for BEM. Finally, both parts on FEM and on BEM are completed by chapters on related problems, e.g. formulations for fluidstructure interaction. In addition to timeharmonic problems, transient problems are considered in some chapters. Many theoretical and industrial applications are presented. Overall, this book is a unified review of the stateoftheart on FEM and BEM for computational acoustics

Title  Computational Granular Dynamics : Models and Algorithms 
Author(s)  P??schel, Thorsten;Schwager, T 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2005. 
Description  X, 322 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Computer simulations not only belong to the most important methods for the theoretical investigation of granular materials, but also provide the tools that have enabled much of the expanding research by physicists and engineers. The present book is intended to serve as an introduction to the application of numerical methods to systems of granular particles. Accordingly, emphasis is placed on a general understanding of the subject rather than on the presentation of the latest advances in numerical algorithms. Although a basic knowledge of C++ is needed for the understanding of the numerical methods and algorithms in the book, it avoids usage of elegant but complicated algorithms to remain accessible for those who prefer to use a different programming language. While the book focuses more on models than on the physics of granular material, many applications to real systems are presented

Title  Morphogenetic Engineering : Toward Programmable Complex Systems 
Author(s)  Doursat, Ren??;Sayama, Hiroki;Michel, Olivier 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012. 
Description  IX, 517 p. 325 illus., 221 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Generally, spontaneous pattern formation phenomena are random and repetitive, whereas elaborate devices are the deterministic product of human design. Yet, biological organisms and collective insect constructions are exceptional examples of complex systems that are both selforganized and architectural. ?? This book is the first initiative of its kind toward establishing a new field of research, Morphogenetic Engineering, to explore the modeling and implementation of ???selfarchitecturing??? systems. Particular emphasis is placed on the programmability and computational abilities of selforganization, properties that are often underappreciated in complex systems science???while, conversely, the benefits of selforganization are often underappreciated in engineering methodologies. ?? Altogether, the aim of this work is to provide a framework for and examples of a larger class of ???selfarchitecturing??? systems, while addressing fundamental questions such as ?? > How do biological organisms carry out morphogenetic tasks so reliably? > Can we extrapolate their selfformation capabilities to engineered systems? > Can physical systems be endowed with information (or informational systems be embedded in physics) so as to create autonomous morphologies and functions? > What are the core principles and best practices for the design and engineering of such morphogenetic systems? The intended audience consists of researchers and graduate students who are working on, starting to work on, or interested in programmable selforganizing systems in a wide range of scientific fields, including computer science, robotics, bioengineering, control engineering, physics, theoretical biology, mathematics, and many others

Title  IUTAM Symposium on Progress in the Theory and Numerics of Configurational Mechanics : Proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium held in Erlangen, Germany, October 2024, 2008 
Author(s)  Steinmann, Paul 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2009. 
Description  XI, 271 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Configurational mechanics has attracted much attention from various research fields over the recent years/decades and has developed into a versatile tool that can be applied to a variety of problems. Since Eshelby's seminal works a general notion of configurational mechanics has evolved and has successfully been applied to many problems involving various types of defects in continuous media. The most prominent application is the use of configurational forces in fracture mechanics. However, as configurational mechanics is related to arbitrary material inhomogeneities it has also very successfully been applied to many materials science and engineering problems such as phase transitions and inelastic deformations. Also, the modeling of materials with microstructure evolution is an important field, in which configurational mechanics can provide a better understanding of processes going on within the material. Besides these mechanical, physical, and chemical applications, ideas from configurational mechanics are now increasingly applied within computational mechanics. In this regard, in particular the combination of configurational mechanics and the finite element method has a notable impact on computational mechanics. New methods based on configurational mechanics are developing in computational fracture mechanics, structural optimization and adaptivity. These methods include, for example, r and hadaptive methods for mesh optimization and refinement. The IUTAM Symposium on "Progress in the Theory and Numerics of Configurational Mechanics" that took place at the University of Erlangen/Nuremberg, Germany, from October 20th to 24th, 2008, shed light on the most recent state of affairs in configurational mechanics. This proceedings volume brings together a number of peer reviewed papers that were presented at the symposium

Title  Numerical Methods for Nonlinear Variational Problems 
Author(s)  Glowinski, Roland 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1984. 
Description  XVII, 493 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Many mechanics and physics problems have variational formulations making them appropriate for numerical treatment by finite element techniques and efficient iterative methods. This book describes the mathematical background and reviews the techniques for solving problems, including those that require large computations such as transonic flows for compressible fluids and the NavierStokes equations for incompressible viscous fluids. Finite element approximations and nonlinear relaxation, augmented Lagrangians, and nonlinear least square methods are all covered in detail, as are many applications. "Numerical Methods for Nonlinear Variational Problems", originally published in the Springer Series in Computational Physics, is a classic in applied mathematics and computational physics and engineering. This longawaited softcover reedition is still a valuable resource for practitioners in industry and physics and for advanced students

Title  Major Research Topics in Combustion 
Author(s)  Hussaini, M.Y;Kumar, A;Voigt, R.G 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 1992. 
Description  XV, 650 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineer?? ing (ICASE) and NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) brought together on October 24, 1989 experts in the various areas of com?? bustion with a view to expose them to some combustion problems of technological interest to LaRC and possibly foster interaction with the academic community in these research areas. The top?? ics chosen for this purpose were flame structure, flame stability, flame holding/extinction, chemical kinetics, turbulencekinetics in?? teraction, transition to detonation, and reacting free shear layers. The lead paper set the stage by discussing the status and issues of supersonic combustion relevant to scramjet engine. Then the ex?? perts were called upon i) to review the current status of knowledge in the aforementioned ;:I. reas, ii) to focus on how this knowledge can be extended and applied to highspeed combustion, and iii) to suggest future directions of research in these areas. Each topic was then dealt with in a position paper followed by formal discussion papers and a general discussion involving the participants. The position papers discussed the stateoftheart with an emphasis on key issues that needed to be resolved in the near future. The discussion papers crit?? ically examined these issues and filled in any lacunae therein. The edited versions of the general discussions in the form of questions from the audience and answers from the speakers are included wher?? ever possible to give the reader the flavor of the lively interactions that took place

Title  Quantitative Mathematical Models in Radiation Biology : Proceedings of the Symposium at Schloss RauischHolzhausen, FRG, July 1987 
Author(s)  Kiefer, J??rgen 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1988. 
Description  VIII, 200 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Radiation is the one agent among all environmental factors which may damage biological systems that is not only easily quantifiable but can also be measured with unsurpassed resolution. Its primary effects on atoms and molecules are well understood, and the secondary processes can be followed by sophisticated experimental techniques. The quantum nature of interactions and the importance of stochastic variations call for an exact mathematical description. This task is by no means simple, and presents a challenge both to the experimentalist and to the theoretician. It is hoped that a generally acceptable formalism will help to quantify radiation responses, both in radiation protection and radiation therapy, and make it possible to move from a purely empirical approach with all its fallacies to real understanding
