Description : This is a graduate text on turbulent flows, an important topic in fluid dynamics. It is up-to-date, comprehensive, designed for teaching, and is based on a course taught by the author at Cornell University for a number of years. The book consists of two parts followed by a number of appendices. Part I provides a general introduction to turbulent flows, how they behave, how they can be described quantitatively, and the fundamental physical processes involved. Part II is concerned with different approaches for modelling or simulating turbulent flows. The necessary mathematical techniques are presented in the appendices. This book is primarily intended as a graduate level text in turbulent flows for engineering students, but it may also be valuable to students in applied mathematics, physics, oceanography and atmospheric sciences, as well as researchers and practising engineers.
Description : Why is wall turbulence self-sustaining? In this book well-regarded researchers not only discuss what they know and believe, but also speculate on ideas that still require numerical or experimental testing and verification.An initial brief history of boundary layer structure research is followed by chapters on experimental information and specific topics within the subject. There are then sections on computational aspects.
Description : Part of the excitement in boundary-layer meteorology is the challenge associated with turbulent flow - one of the unsolved problems in classical physics. An additional attraction of the filed is the rich diversity of topics and research methods that are collected under the umbrella-term of boundary-layer meteorology. The flavor of the challenges and the excitement associated with the study of the atmospheric boundary layer are captured in this textbook. Fundamental concepts and mathematics are presented prior to their use, physical interpretations of the terms in equations are given, sample data are shown, examples are solved, and exercises are included. The work should also be considered as a major reference and as a review of the literature, since it includes tables of parameterizatlons, procedures, filed experiments, useful constants, and graphs of various phenomena under a variety of conditions. It is assumed that the work will be used at the beginning graduate level for students with an undergraduate background in meteorology, but the author envisions, and has catered for, a heterogeneity in the background and experience of his readers.

Description : '...successfully moves the concept of enhancing performance fromround-the-world yacht racing into the business world'Sir Chay Blyth, CBE BEM 'This is a powerful book with simple and transparent lessons.'From the Foreword by Richard Olver, Managing Director, BPTo answer the how, what, when and why questions of effective leadership, the authors of this groundbreaking book looked to the world of competitive sport. The BT Global Challenge 2000/1 Round the World Yacht Race provided a unique case study and an excellent parallel with today's business environment. The race was highly competitive, the environment hostile, at times dangerous, and conditions were uncertain. Faced with these pressures, and racing identical yachts, the winners were the skippers who led their teams most effectively to achieve and sustain high performance. The authors of this groundbreaking book were given unrivalled 'behind the scenes' access to The BT Global Challenge 2000/1 Round the World Yacht Race and conducted over 500 interviews with the crew and skippers from each of the 12 teams before, throughout and after the race. The authors identify the key attributes and skills which make effective leaders stand out from the crowd and demonstrate how emotional intelligence can be developed to impact on performance. Combining these new findings with existing theories of management and leadership, emotional intelligence, motivation and team dynamics this book provides managers and MBA students with an in-depth understanding of what makes a high performing leader and demonstrates how to sustain competitive advantage in business.
Description : "This book is the second of two follow-on volumes to the author's bestseller, Principles of Combustion, Second Edition published in 2005. This text focuses on applications, with coverage not available elsewhere, including solid propellants, burning behavior, and chemical boundary layer flows. Kuo provides a multiphase systems approach beginning with more common topics and moving to higher level applications. As with Kuo's earlier book, large numbers of examples and problems and a solutions manual are provided"--Provided by publisher.
Description : Detailed coverage of advanced combustion topics from the authorof Principles of Combustion, Second Edition Turbulence, turbulent combustion, and multiphase reacting flowshave become major research topics in recent decades due to theirapplication across diverse fields, including energy, environment,propulsion, transportation, industrial safety, and nanotechnology.Most of the knowledge accumulated from this research has never beenpublished in book form—until now. Fundamentals of Turbulentand Multiphase Combustion presents up-to-date, integrated coverageof the fundamentals of turbulence, combustion, and multiphasephenomena along with useful experimental techniques, includingnon-intrusive, laser-based measurement techniques, providing a firmbackground in both contemporary and classical approaches. Beginningwith two full chapters on laminar premixed and non-premixed flames,this book takes a multiphase approach, beginning with more commontopics and moving on to higher-level applications. In addition, Fundamentals of Turbulent and MultiphaseCombustion: Addresses seven basic topical areas in combustion and multiphaseflows, including laminar premixed and non-premixed flames, theoryof turbulence, turbulent premixed and non-premixed flames, andmultiphase flows Covers spray atomization and combustion, solid-propellantcombustion, homogeneous propellants, nitramines, reactingboundary-layer flows, single energetic particle combustion, andgranular bed combustion Provides experimental setups and results wheneverappropriate Supported with a large number of examples and problems as wellas a solutions manual, Fundamentals of Turbulent and MultiphaseCombustion is an important resource for professional engineers andresearchers as well as graduate students in mechanical, chemical,and aerospace engineering.
Description : Top options expert Larry Shover returns to discuss how to interpret, and profit from, market volatility Trading Options in Turbulent Markets, Second Edition skillfully explains the intricacies of options volatility and shows you how to use options to cope, and profit from, market turbulence. Throughout this new edition, options expert Larry Shover reveals how to use historical volatility to predict future volatility for a security and addresses how you can utilize that knowledge to make better trading decisions. Along the way, he also defines the so-called Greeks—delta, vega, theta, and gamma—and explains what drives their values and their relationship to historic and implied volatility. Shover then provides effective strategies for trading options contracts in uncertain times, addressing the decision-making process and how to trade objectively in the face of unpredictable and irrational market moves. Includes a new chapter of the VIX, more advanced material on volatility suitable for institutional or intermediate options trader, and additional volatility-based strategies Answers complex questions such as: How does a trader know when to tolerate risk and How does a successful trader respond to adversity? Provides a different perspective on a variety of options strategies, including covered calls, naked and married puts, collars, straddles, vertical spreads, calendar spreads, butterflies, condors, and more As volatility becomes a greater focus of traders and investors, Trading Options in Turbulent Markets, Second Edition will become an important resource for in-depth insights, practical advice, and profitable strategies.
