  • Thermodynamik: Eine Einführung (German Edition) by Lauth,Kowalczyk,Jürgen Kowalczyk

    By Lauth,Kowalczyk,Jürgen Kowalczyk

    „Thermodynamik ist ein komisches Fach. Das erste Mal, wenn guy sich damit befasst, versteht guy nichts davon…“ Dieses Zitat des berühmten Physikers Arnold Sommerfeld spricht wohl vielen Studierenden der ersten Semester aus dem Herzen. In der Tat wirken die Vielzahl an thermodynamischen Größen wie Innere Energie, Enthalpie, Gibbs'sche Energie gerade für den Anfänger recht verwirrend. Zugegeben – Thermodynamik ist nicht einfach, und deshalb ist ein gutes Lehrkonzept besonders wichtig. Einerseits darf der Studierende nicht mit akademischen Definitionen und mathematischen Ableitungen erschlagen, andererseits aber auch nicht mit „Thermodynamik mild“ mit trügerischem Halbwissen abgespeist werden. Das vorliegende Lehrbuch basiert auf jahrzehntelanger Lehrerfahrung der Autoren und folgt dem von Carathéodory aufgezeigten Zugang zur Thermodynamik. Dieses in den traditionellen Lehrbüchern eher seltene Konzept stellt einen mathematischen Zusammenhang zwischen den zahlreichen thermodynamischen Größen her und hat bereits Albert Einstein begeistert.

  • Thermodynamics of Pharmaceutical Systems: An Introduction by Kenneth A. Connors

    By Kenneth A. Connors

    reports of thermodynamics usually fail to illustrate how the mathematical intricacies of the topic relate to useful laboratory purposes. Thermodynamics of Pharmaceutical structures makes those connections transparent, emphasizing particular functions to pharmaceutical platforms in a research created particularly for modern curriculums at schools of pharmacy.

    Students investigating drug discovery, drug supply, and drug motion will take advantage of Kenneth Connors’s authoritative therapy of the basics of thermodynamics in addition to his recognition to drug molecules and experimental issues. an in depth appendix that reports the math had to grasp the drugstore curriculum proves a useful reference. Connors divides his extraordinary textual content into 3 sections: simple Thermodynamics, Thermodynamics of actual approaches, and Thermodynamics of Chemical procedures; chapters include:

    • Energy and the 1st legislation of Thermodynamics
    • The Entropy Concept
    • Phase Transformations
    • Solubility
    • Acid-Base Equilibria
    • Noncovalent Binding Equilibria

    Thermodynamics don't need to be a secret nor be restrained to the area of mathematical conception. Thermodynamics of Pharmaceutical structures introduces scholars of pharmacy to the profound thermodynamic functions within the laboratory whereas additionally serving as a convenient source for training researchers.

  • Railway Noise and Vibration: Mechanisms, Modelling and Means by David Thompson

    By David Thompson

    Railways are an environmentally pleasant technique of shipping like minded to fashionable society. even if, noise and vibration are key stumbling blocks to additional improvement of the railway networks for high-speed intercity site visitors, for freight and for suburban metros and light-rail. All too frequently noise difficulties are handled inefficiently as a result of lack of information of the problem.

    This ebook brings jointly assurance of the speculation of railway noise and vibration with functional purposes of noise keep an eye on know-how at resource to resolve noise and vibration difficulties from railways. each one resource of noise and vibration is defined in a scientific approach: rolling noise, curve squeal, bridge noise, aerodynamic noise, floor vibration and ground-borne noise, and car inside noise.

    • Theoretical modelling methods are brought for every resource in an instructional fashion
    • Practical functions of noise keep watch over expertise are offered utilizing the theoretical models
    • Extensive examples of program to noise relief suggestions are included

    Railway Noise and Vibration is a hard-working reference and should be beneficial to all who've to house noise and vibration from railways, no matter if operating within the or in consultancy or educational research.

    David Thompson is Professor of Railway Noise and Vibration on the Institute of Sound and Vibration study, college of Southampton. He has labored within the box of railway noise in view that 1980, with British Rail learn in Derby, united kingdom, and TNO Institute of utilized Physics within the Netherlands prior to relocating to Southampton in 1996. He used to be chargeable for constructing the TWINS software program for predicting rolling noise.

  • Detonation: Theory and Experiment (Dover Books on Physics) by Wildon Fickett,William C. Davis

    By Wildon Fickett,William C. Davis

    Detonation, because the authors indicate, differs from different kinds of combustion "in that each one the real strength move is through mass movement in powerful compression waves, with negligible contributions from different tactics like warmth conduction." Experiments have proven that those waves have a posh transverse constitution, and feature questioned scientists through yielding a few effects which are at odds with the theoretical predictions.
    This newly corrected version of a vintage in its box serves as a accomplished assessment of either experiments and theories of detonation ― targeting the regular (i.e. time-independent), absolutely built detonation wave, instead of at the initiation or failure of detonation. After an introductory bankruptcy the authors discover the "simple theory," together with the Zeldovich–von Newmann–Doering version, and experimental assessments of the easy idea. The chapters that keep on with disguise circulation in a reactive medium, regular detonation, the nonsteady resolution, and the constitution of the detonation entrance. The authors have succeeded in making the specific, tricky theoretical paintings extra obtainable through figuring out a couple of uncomplicated situations for illustration.
    The unique variation of this ebook prompted many different scientists to pursue theories and experiments in detonation physics. This new, corrected variation should be welcomed by way of physicists, chemists, engineers, and someone drawn to knowing the phenomenon of detonation.
