Title  Cryocoolers : Theory and Applications 
Author(s)  Atrey, Milind D 
Publication  Cham, 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

Title  Theoretical Thermotics : Transformation Thermotics and Extended Theories for Thermal Metamaterials 
Author(s)  Huang, JiPing 
Publication  Singapore, 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, 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

Title  Diagnosis and Robust Control of Complex Building Central Chilling Systems for Enhanced Energy Performance 
Author(s)  Gao, DianCe 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2019. 
Description  XX, 180 p. 99 illus., 91 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book discusses enhancing the overall energy performance of building central airconditioning systems through fault diagnosis and robust control strategies. Fault diagnosis strategies aim to determine the exact cause of problems and evaluate the energy impact on the system, while robust control strategies aim to manage chilled water systems to avoid the occurrence of low deltaT syndrome and deficit flow problems. Presenting the first academic study of the diagnostic method and control mechanism of ???small temperature difference syndrome???, the book describes the highly robust and adaptive faulttolerant control method developed to overcome the influences of external disturbance on the process control in practical applications. The diagnostic technology developed provides a predictive assessment of the energy dissipation effect of the fault. This book is a valuable reference resource for researchers and designers in the areas of building energy management and built environment control, as well as for senior undergraduate and graduate students
