Partial differential equations : theory and technique by George F Carrier ( Book )
27 editions published between 1976 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the second edition of the well-established text in partial differential equations, emphasizing modern, practical solution techniques. This updated edition includes a new chapter on transform methods and a new section on integral equations in the numerical methods chapter. The authors have also included additional exercises
Functions of a complex variable; theory and technique by George F Carrier ( Book )
42 editions published between 1960 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Functions of a complex variable are used to solve applications in various branches of mathematics, science, and engineering. Functions of a Complex Variable: Theory and Technique is a book in a special category of influential classics because it is based on the authors' extensive experience in modeling complicated situations and providing analytic solutions. The book makes available to readers a comprehensive range of these analytical techniques based upon complex variable theory. Advanced topics covered include asymptotics, transforms, the Wiener-Hopf method, and dual and singular integral equations. The authors provide many exercises, incorporating them into the body of the text. Audience: intended for applied mathematicians, scientists, engineers, and senior or graduate-level students who have advanced knowledge in calculus and are interested in such subjects as complex variable theory, function theory, mathematical methods, advanced engineering mathematics, and mathematical physics
Studies in applied mathematics by Abraham Haskel Taub ( Book )
4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ordinary differential equations by George F Carrier ( Book )
27 editions published between 1958 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Offers an alternative to the "rote" approach of presenting standard categories of differential equations accompanied by routine problem sets. The exercises presented amplify and provide perspective for the material, often giving readers opportunity for ingenuity. Little or no previous acquaintance with the subject is required to learn usage of techniques for constructing solutions of differential equations in this reprint volume
Aerodynamics of high speed; facsimiles of nineteen fundamental studies as they were originally reported in the scientific journals by George F Carrier ( Book )
4 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Analytic studies on satellite detection of severe, two-cell tornadoes by George F Carrier ( Book )
3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Towards wind-aided flame spread along a horizontal charring slab : the steady flow problem by George F Carrier ( Book )
2 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The spread of fire across the ceiling of a large room (or long corridor) in a structure is modeled as wind-aided flame spread along a horizontal char-forming thick slab, in the presence of significant convective, diffusive, and radiative transport. The goal is to predict the rate of streamwise advance of the site on the solid-gas interface at which the pristine solid undergoes endothermic degradation to a combination of (1) a porous carbonaceous heat-retaining matrix, and (2) a mixture of (partially combustible) vapors that move through the matrix to the outer gas. This rate of advance of the thermal-degradation site is sought as a function of normally available data concerning the thermodynamic and physical properties of the solid and the thermodynamic and dynamic state of the hot vitiated bulk gas that flows over the slab. A nonlinear, unsteady, two-spatial-dimension treatment in the Shvab-Zeldovich approximation entails boundary- layer simplification in the manner of Prandtl convective-transport simplification in the manner of Oseen, and thin-flame simplification in the manner of Burke and Schumann. Whereas the formulation given here is general and is to be solved in subsequent work for a partially involved slab, the solution here is limited to the steady-state problem

Wind-aided firespread across arrays of discrete fuel elements by George F Carrier ( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The rate of wind-aided firespread (v sub f) across an array of very- small-diameter, discrete fuel elements is sought, as a step toward predicting the advance in time of a firefront though either strewn debris in a heavily- blast-damaged scenario or through brush-and-grass-type wildlands. Here, the quasisteady rate (if one exists) is sought for conditions under which there is both (1) a wind whose mean speed U is constant and whose direction is constant, and (2) a horizontal bed with a macroscopically uniform fuel distribution. M is the mass of fuel (per unit planform area of the bed) consumed with firefront passage; here the fuel elements are thin, so the fuel consumed is identical with the fuel loading initially present, if fire propagates at all. Laboratory-scale experiments in a specially dedicated firetunnel, with supplementary approximate analysis, are reported. Extensive testing suggests that (v sub f) varies with sq root of U/m over a wide range of the parameters U and m. Only if the thin-fuel loading m approaches the rather large value of very roughly 2 g/sq cm is radiative transfer likely to play a role comparable to that of convection/ diffusion for preheating.
