Title  LowLoss Storage and Handling of Cryogenic Liquids : The Application of Cryogenic Fluid Dynamics 
Author(s)  Bostock, Thomas D;Scurlock, Ralph G 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. 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

Title  Thermodynamics : Fundamental Principles and Applications 
Author(s)  Saggion, Antonio;Faraldo, Rossella;Pierno, Matteo 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XXVII, 432 p. 43 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a comprehensive overview of thermodynamics. It is divided into four parts, the first of which equips readers with a deeper understanding of the fundamental principles of thermodynamics of equilibrium states and of their evolution. The second part applies these principles to a series of generalized situations, presenting applications that are of interest both in their own right and in terms of demonstrating how thermodynamics, as a theory of principle, relates to different fields. In turn, the third part focuses on nonequilibrium configurations and the dynamics of natural processes. It discusses both discontinuous and continuous systems, highlighting the interference among nonequilibrium processes, and the nature of stationary states and of fluctuations in isolated systems. Lastly, part four introduces the relation between physics and information theory, which constitutes a new frontier in fundamental research. The book includes stepbystep exercises, with solutions, to help readers to gain a fuller understanding of the subjects, and also features a series of appendices providing useful mathematical formulae. Reflecting the content of modern university courses on thermodynamics, it is a valuable resource for students and young scientists in the fields of physics, chemistry, and engineering

Title  Statistical Mechanics : An Introductory Graduate Course 
Author(s)  Berlinsky, A. J;Harris, A. B 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XXI, 602 p. 169 illus., 28 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  In a comprehensive treatment of Statistical Mechanics from thermodynamics through the renormalization group, this book serves as the core text for a fullyear graduate course in statistical mechanics at either the Masters or Ph.D. level. Each chapter contains numerous exercises, and several chapters treat special topics which can be used as the basis for student projects. The concept of scaling is introduced early and used extensively throughout the text. At the heart of the book is an extensive treatment of mean field theory, from the simplest decoupling approach, through the density matrix formalism, to selfconsistent classical and quantum field theory as well as exact solutions on the Cayley tree. Proceeding beyond mean field theory, the book discusses exact mappings involving Potts models, percolation, selfavoiding walks and quenched randomness, connecting various athermal and thermal models. Computational methods such as series expansions and Monte Carlo simulations are discussed, along with exact solutions to the 1D quantum and 2D classical Ising models. The renormalization group formalism is developed, starting from realspace RG and proceeding through a detailed treatment of Wilson???s epsilon expansion. Finally the subject of KosterlitzThouless systems is introduced from a historical perspective and then treated by methods due to Anderson, Kosterlitz, Thouless and Young. Altogether, this comprehensive, uptodate, and engaging text offers an ideal package for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses or for use in self study

Title  Cryogenic Safety : A Guide to Best Practice in the Lab and Workplace 
Author(s)  Peterson, Thomas J;Weisend II, J. G 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XIX, 213 p. 69 illus., 49 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes the current state of the art in cryogenic safety best practice, helping the reader to work with cryogenic systems and materials safely. It brings together information from previous texts, industrial and laboratory safety polices, and recent research papers. Case studies, example problems, and an extensive list of references are included to add to the utility of the text. It describes the unique safety hazards posed by cryogenics in all its guises, including issues associated with the extreme cold of cryogenics, the flammability of some cryogenic fluids, the displacement of oxygen by inert gases boiling off from cryogenic fluids, and the high pressures that can be formed during the volume expansion that occurs when a cryogenic fluid becomes a room temperature gas. A further chapter considers the challenges arising from the behavior of materials at cryogenic temperatures. Many materials are inappropriate for use in cryogenics and can fail, resulting in hazardous conditions. Despite these hazards, work at cryogenic temperatures can be performed safely. The book also discusses broader safety issues such as hazard analysis, establishment of a safe work culture and lessons learned from cryogenic safety in accelerator labs. This book is designed to be useful to everyone affected by cryogenic hazards regardless of their expertise in cryogenics

Title  Plasma and Spot Phenomena in Electrical Arcs 
Author(s)  Beilis, Isak 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XXXI, 1126 p. 556 illus., 319 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is devoted to a thorough investigation of the physics and applications of the vacuum arc ??? a highlyionized metallic plasma source used in a number of applications ??? with emphasis on cathode spot phenomena and plasma formation. The goal is to understand the origins and behavior of various complex and sometimes mysterious phenomena involved in arc formation, such as cathode spots, electrode vaporization, and nearelectrode plasma formation. The book takes the reader from a model of dense cathode plasma based on chargeexchange ionatom collisions through a kinetic approach to cathode vaporization and on to metal thermophysical properties of cathodes. The picture is further enhanced by an indepth study of cathode jets and plasma acceleration, the effects of magnetic fields on cathode spot behavior, and electrical characteristics of arcs and cathode spot dynamics. The book also describes applications to space propulsion, thin film deposition, laser plasma generation, and magnetohydrodynamics, making this comprehensive and uptodate volume a valuable resource for researchers in academia and industry.

Title  Cryocoolers : Theory and Applications 
Author(s)  Atrey, Milind D 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  X, 236 p. 178 illus., 149 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book serves as an introduction to cryocooler technology and describes the principle applications of cryocoolers across a broad range of fields. It covers the specific requirements of these applications, and describes how the advantages and disadvantages of different cryocooler systems are taken into consideration. For example, Stirling coolers tend to be used only in space applications because of their high coefficient of performance, low weight and proven reliability, whilst GiffordMcMahon coolers are used for ground applications, such as in cryopumps and MRI shield cooling applications. JouleThomson cryocoolers are used in missile technology because of the fast cool down requirements. The cryocooler field is fast developing and the number of applications are growing because of the increasing costs of the cryogens such as Helium and Neon. The first chapter of the book introduces the different types of cryocoolers, their classification, working principles, and their design aspects, and briefly mentions some of the applications of these systems. This introductory chapter is followed by a number of contributions from prominent international researchers, each describing a specific field of application, the cooling requirements and the cryocooler systems employed. These areas of application include gas liquefaction, space technology, medical science, dilution refrigerators, missile systems, and physics research including particle accelerators. Each chapter describes the cooling requirements based on the end use, the approximate cooling load calculations, the criteria for cryocooler selection, the arrangement for cryocooler placement, the connection of the cooler to the object to be cooled, and includes genuine case studies. Intended primarily for researchers working on cryocoolers, the book will also serve as an introduction to cryocooler technology for students, and a useful reference for those using cryocooler systems in any area of application

Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2020. 
Description  XVI, 256 p. 80 illus., 75 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book focuses on theoretical thermotics, the theory of transformation thermotics and its extended theories for the active control of macroscopic thermal phenomena of artificial systems, which is in sharp contrast to classical thermodynamics comprising the four thermodynamic laws for the passive description of macroscopic thermal phenomena of natural systems. The book covers the basic concepts and mathematical methods, which are necessary to understand thermal problems extensively investigated in physics, but also in other disciplines of engineering and materials. The analyses rely on models solved by analytical techniques accompanied with computer simulations and laboratory experiments. This book serves both as a reference work for senior researchers and a study text for zero beginners

Title  Transport Processes Primer 
Author(s)  Pozrikidis, Constantine 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer US, 2019. 
Description  XXV, 279 p. 23 illus., 19 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this concise yet comprehensive book, the author discusses the principles of mass, momentum, and energy transport, and derives balance equations for singlecomponent fluids and multicomponent mixtures based on the direct application of natural laws and principles of thermodynamics. Transport equations over control volumes are formulated with reference to the Reynolds transport equation, thereby circumventing the need for adhoc balances for open systems that are best justified in hindsight. Notable features with regard to mass transport include the interpretation of diffusion in mixtures in terms of species parcel motion and separation, the introduction of Fick???s and fractional diffusion laws with reference to random molecular excursions, a detailed account of species and mixture kinematics and dynamics, and the discussion of partial stresses, energies, and entropies of individual mixture components. Key features of this book include: ??? The governing equations are derived from first principles based on the application of natural laws and principles of thermodynamics ??? Balances over control volumes are derived from rigorous equations governing material parcel property evolution ??? Fick???s law, a fractional diffusion law, and other diffusion laws are discussed with reference to random walks ??? A detailed account of species and mixture kinematics and dynamics is presented for binary and multicomponent solutions ??? A tabulated summary of transport equations is presented in differential and integral forms, and an overview of classical thermodynamics is given in an appendix for a selfcontained discourse C. Pozrikidis has taught at the University of California and the University of Massachusetts. He is the author of several books on theoretical and computational topics in science and engineering, applied mathematics, scientific computing, and computer science
