Author(s)  Liu, Chaoqun;Wang, Yiqian 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XXXI, 468 p. 343 illus., 320 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book collects papers presented in the Invited Workshop, ???Liutex and Third Generation of Vortex Definition and Identification for Turbulence,??? from CHAOS2020, June 912, 2020, which was held online as a virtual conference. Liutex is a new physical quantity introduced by Prof. Chaoqun Liu of the University of Texas at Arlington. It is a vector and could give a unique and accurate mathematical definition for fluid rotation or vortex. The papers in this volume include some Liutex theories and many applications in hydrodynamics, aerodynamics and thermal dynamics including turbine machinery. As vortex exists everywhere in the universe, a mathematical definition of vortex or Liutex will play a critical role in scientific research. There is almost no place without vortex in fluid dynamics. As a projection, the Liutex theory will play an important role on the investigations of the vortex dynamics in hydrodynamics, aerodynamics, thermodynamics, oceanography, meteorology, metallurgy, civil engineering, astronomy, biology, etc. and to the researches of the generation, sustenance, modelling and controlling of turbulence

Title  Optimal Auxiliary Functions Method for Nonlinear Dynamical Systems 
Author(s)  Marinca, Vasile;Herisanu, Nicolae;Marinca, Bogdan 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIII, 479 p. 442 illus., 414 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the optimal auxiliary functions method and applies it to various engineering problems and in particular in boundary layer problems. The cornerstone of the presented procedure is the concept of ???optimal auxiliary functions??? which are needed to obtain accurate results in an efficient way. Unlike other known analytic approaches, this procedure provides us with a simple but rigorous way to control and adjust the convergence of the solutions of nonlinear dynamical systems. The optimal auxiliary functions are depending on some convergencecontrol parameters whose optimal values are rigorously determined from mathematical point of view. The capital strength of our procedure is its fast convergence, since after only one iteration, we obtain very accurate analytical solutions which are very easy to be verified. Moreover, no simplifying hypothesis or assumptions are made. The book contains a large amount of practical models from various fields of engineering such as classical and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, nonlinear oscillations, electrical machines, and many more. The book is a continuation of our previous books ???Nonlinear Dynamical Systems in Engineering. Some Approximate Approaches???, Springer2011 and ???The Optimal Homotopy Asymptotic Method. Engineering Applications???, Springer2015

Title  Rogue and Shock Waves in Nonlinear Dispersive Media 
Author(s)  Onorato, Miguel;Resitori, Stefania;Baronio, Fabio 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 370 p. 152 illus., 132 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This selfcontained set of lectures addresses a gap in the literature by providing a systematic link between the theoretical foundations of the subject matter and cuttingedge applications in both geophysical fluid dynamics and nonlinear optics. Rogue and shock waves are phenomena that may occur in the propagation of waves in any nonlinear dispersive medium. Accordingly, they have been observed in disparate settings ??? as ocean waves, in nonlinear optics, in BoseEinstein condensates, and in plasmas. Rogue and dispersive shock waves are both characterized by the development of extremes: for the former, the wave amplitude becomes unusually large, while for the latter, gradients reach extreme values. Both aspects strongly influence the statistical properties of the wave propagation and are thus considered together here in terms of their underlying theoretical treatment. This book offers a selfcontained graduatelevel text intended as both an introduction and reference guide for a new generation of scientists working on rogue and shock wave phenomena across a broad range of fields in applied physics and geophysics

Title  The Lattice Boltzmann Method : Principles and Practice 
Author(s)  Kr??ger, Timm;Kusumaatmaja, Halim;Kuzmin, Alexandr;Shardt, Orest;Silva, Goncalo;Viggen, Erlend Magnus 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXIV, 694 p. 126 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is an introduction to the theory, practice, and implementation of the Lattice Boltzmann (LB) method, a powerful computational fluid dynamics method that is steadily gaining attention due to its simplicity, scalability, extensibility, and simple handling of complex geometries. The book contains chapters on the method's background, fundamental theory, advanced extensions, and implementation. To aid beginners, the most essential paragraphs in each chapter are highlighted, and the introductory chapters on various LB topics are frontloaded with special "in a nutshell" sections that condense the chapter's most important practical results. Together, these sections can be used to quickly get up and running with the method. Exercises are integrated throughout the text, and frequently asked questions about the method are dealt with in a special section at the beginning. In the book itself and through its web page, readers can find example codes showing how the LB method can be implemented efficiently on a variety of hardware platforms, including multicore processors, clusters, and graphics processing units. Students and scientists learning and using the LB method will appreciate the wealth of clearly presented and structured information in this volume

Title  Understanding Viscoelasticity : An Introduction to Rheology 
Author(s)  PhanThien, Nhan;MaiDuy, Nam 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVIII, 304 p. 74 illus., 18 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents an introduction to viscoelasticity, in particular, to the theories of dilute polymer solutions and dilute suspensions of rigid particles in viscous and incompressible fluids. These theories are important, not just because they apply to practical problems of industrial interest, but because they form a solid theoretical base upon which mathematical techniques can be built, from which more complex theories can be constructed, to better mimic material behaviour. The emphasis of this book is not on the voluminous current topical research, but on the necessary tools to understand viscoelasticity. This is a compact book for a first year graduate course in viscoelasticity and modelling of viscoelastic multiphase fluids. The Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) is introduced as a particlebased method, relevant in modelling of complexstructured fluids. All the basic ideas in DPD are reviewed. The third edition has been updated and expanded with new results in the mesoscale modelling, links between the fluid modelling to its physical parameters and new matlab programs illustrating the modelling. Particlebased modelling techniques for complexstructure fluids are added together with some sample programs. A solution manual to the problems is included

Title  Study of Quark Gluon Plasma By Particle Correlations in Heavy Ion Collisions 
Author(s)  Yi, Li 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2016. 
Description  XVI, 83 p. 54 illus., 42 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis covers several important topics relevant to our understanding of quarkgluon plasma. It describes measurement of the thirdorder harmonic flow using twoparticle correlations and isolation of flow and nonflow contributions to particle correlations in goldgold collisions. The work also investigates longrange longitudinal correlations in small systems of deuterongold collisions. The former is related to the hydrodynamic transport properties of the quarkgluon plasma created in goldgold collisions. The latter pertains to the question whether hydrodynamics is applicable to small systems, such as deuterongold collisions, and whether the quarkgluon plasma can be formed in those smallsystem collisions. The work presented in this thesis was conducted with the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory, where the centerofmass energy of both collision systems was a factor of 100 larger than the rest mass of the colliding nuclei. The results contained in this thesis are highly relevant to our quest for deeper understanding of quantum chromodynamics. The results obtained challenge the interpretation of previous works from several other experiments on small systems, and provoke a fresh look at the physics of hydrodynamics and particle correlations pertinent to high energy nuclear collisions

Title  BuoyancyThermocapillary Convection of Volatile Fluids in Confined and Sealed Geometries 
Author(s)  Qin, Tongran 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVIII, 209 p. 63 illus., 29 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis represents the first systematic description of the twophase flow problem. Twophase flows of volatile fluids in confined geometries driven by an applied temperature gradient play an important role in a range of applications, including thermal management, such as heat pipes, thermosyphons, capillary pumped loops and other evaporative cooling devices. Previously, this problem has been addressed using a piecemeal approach that relied heavily on correlations and unproven assumptions, and the science and technology behind heat pipes have barely evolved in recent decades. The model introduced in this thesis, however, presents a comprehensive physically based description of both the liquid and the gas phase. The model has been implemented numerically and successfully validated against the available experimental data, and the numerical results are used to determine the key physical processes that control the heat and mass flow and describe the flow stability. One of the key contributions of this thesis work is the description of the role of noncondensables, such as air, on transport. In particular, it is shown that many of the assumptions used by current engineering models of evaporative cooling devices are based on experiments conducted at atmospheric pressures, and these assumptions break down partially or completely when most of the noncondensables are removed, requiring a new modeling approach presented in the thesis. Moreover, Numerical solutions are used to motivate and justify a simplified analytical description of transport in both the liquid and the gas layer, which can be used to describe flow stability and determine the critical Marangoni number and wavelength describing the onset of the convective pattern. As a result, the results presented in the thesis should be of interest both to engineers working in heat transfer and researchers interested in fluid dynamics and pattern formation

Title  Gas Dynamics : An Introduction with Examples from Astrophysics and Geophysics 
Author(s)  Achterberg, Abraham 
Publication  Paris, 1. Atlantis Press
2. Imprint: Atlantis Press, 2016. 
Description  XII, 391 p. 83 illus., 36 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book lays the foundations of gas and fluid dynamics. The basic equations are developed from first principles, building on the (assumed) knowledge of Classical Mechanics. This leads to the discussion of the mathematical properties of flows, conservation laws, perturbation analysis, waves and shocks. Most of the discussion centers on ideal (frictionless) fluids and gases. Viscous flows are discussed when considering flows around obstacles and shocks. Many of the examples used to illustrate various processes come from astrophysics and geophysical phenomena
