  • Thermodynamik: Vom Tautropfen zum Solarkraftwerk (De Gruyter by Rainer Müller

    By Rainer Müller

    Was haben adiabatische Prozesse mit den thermischen Aufwinden beim Segelfliegen zu tun? Wie hilft die Theorie der instationären Wärmeleitung bei der Zubereitung eines knusprigen Sonntagsbratens? Und wie lässt sich mit dem Begriff der Entropie die Funktionsweise eines Solarkraftwerks in der kalifornischen Wüste analysieren?

    Die Thermodynamik wird in diesem Buch im ständigen Bezug auf praktische Anwendungen aus Alltag und Technik vermittelt. Das Verständnis für thermodynamische Zusammenhänge wird dadurch von Anfang an unterstützt – denn am besten lernt guy dadurch, dass guy das Gelernte in authentischen Situationen anwendet. Wie auch schon im Band des Autors zur Mechanik bleiben der hohe fachliche Anspruch und die begriffliche Klarheit der Darstellung dabei jederzeit gewahrt.

  • Fluid and Thermodynamics: Volume 2: Advanced Fluid Mechanics by Kolumban Hutter,Yongqi Wang

    By Kolumban Hutter,Yongqi Wang

    In this ebook fluid mechanics and thermodynamics (F&T) are approached as interwoven, now not disjoint fields. The e-book starts off via studying the creeping movement round spheres at relaxation: Stokes flows, the Oseen correction and the Lagerstrom-Kaplun enlargement theories are provided, as is the homotopy research. 3D creeping flows and fast granular avalanches are taken care of within the context of the shallow stream approximation, and it truly is established that specialty and balance carry a traditional transition to turbulence modeling on the 0, first order closure point. The difference-quotient turbulence version (DQTM) closure scheme finds the significance of the turbulent closure schemes’ non-locality results. Thermodynamics is gifted within the kind of the 1st and moment legislation, and irreversibility is expressed when it comes to an entropy stability. particular expressions for constitutive postulates are in conformity with the dissipation inequality. fuel dynamics supply a primary software of mixed F&T.
