Description : A description of the use of computer aided modeling and simulation in the development, integration and optimization of industrial processes. The two authors elucidate the entire procedure step-by-step, from basic mathematical modeling to result interpretation and full-scale process performance analysis. They further demonstrate similitude comparisons of experimental results from different systems as a tool for broadening the applicability of the calculation methods. Throughout, the book adopts a very practical approach, addressing actual problems and projects likely to be encountered by the reader, as well as fundamentals and solution strategies for complex problems. It is thus equally useful for student and professional engineers and chemists involved in industrial process and production plant design, construction or upgrading.
Description : As indicated in Vol. 1, the purpose of this two-volume textbook is to pro vide students of engineering, science and applied mathematics with the spe cific techniques, and the framework to develop skill in using them, that have proven effective in the various branches of computational fluid dy namics Volume 1 describes both fundamental and general techniques that are relevant to all branches of fluid flow. This volume contains specific tech niques applicable to the different categories of engineering flow behaviour, many of which are also appropriate to convective heat transfer. The contents of Vol. 2 are suitable for specialised graduate courses in the engineering computational fluid dynamics (CFD) area and are also aimed at the established research worker or practitioner who has already gained some fundamental CFD background. It is assumed that the reader is famil iar with the contents of Vol. 1. The contents of Vol. 2 are arranged in the following way: Chapter 11 de velops and discusses the equations governing fluid flow and introduces the simpler flow categories for which specific computational techniques are considered in Chaps. 14-18. Most practical problems involve computational domain boundaries that do not conveniently coincide with coordinate lines. Consequently, in Chap. 12 the governing equations are expressed in generalised curvilinear coordinates for use in arbitrary computational domains. The corresponding problem of generating an interior grid is considered in Chap. 13.
Description : The purpose and organisation of this book are described in the preface to the first edition (1988). In preparing this edition minor changes have been made, par ticularly to Chap. 1 (Vol. 1) to keep it reasonably current, and to upgrade the treatment of specific techniques, particularly in Chaps. 12-14 and 16-18. How ever, the rest of the book (Vols. 1 and 2) has required only minor modification to clarify the presentation and to modify or replace individual problems to make them more effective. The answers to the problems are available in Solutions Manual jor Computational Techniques jor Fluid Dynamics by K. Srinivas and C. A. J. Fletcher, published by Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg, 1991. The computer programs have also been reviewed and tidied up. These are available on an IBM compatible floppy disc direct from the author. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many readers for their usually generous comments about the first edition and particularly those readers who went to the trouble of drawing specific errors to my attention. In this revised edi tion considerable effort has been made to remove a number of minor errors that had found their way into the original. I express the hope that no errors remain but welcome communication that will help me improve future editions. In preparing this revised edition I have received considerable help from Dr. K.
Description : This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence, and Reasoning, LPAR 2010, which took place in Dakar, Senegal, in April/May 2010. The 27 revised full papers and 9 revised short papers presented together with 1 invited talk were carefully revised and selected from 47 submissions. The papers address all current issues in automated reasoning, computational logic, programming languages and deal with logic programming, logic-based program manipulation, formal methods, and various kinds of AI logics. Subjects covered range from theoretical aspects to various applications such as automata, linear arithmetic, verification, knowledge representation, proof theory, quantified constraints, as well as modal and temporal logics.
Description : Whether you've just been bitten by the urge to operate flea power, or you've already discovered just how much fun it is to operate with 5 watts or less, this is the book you've been looking for. It's crammed with projects you can build and resource information you can use. In addition to the best QRP-related articles from QST, QEX and The ARRL Handbook, there's a new, in-depth article on NN1G's popular 40-40 transceiver.
