An informal introduction to theoretical fluid mechanics by M. J Lighthill ( Book )
23 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sir James Lighthill is one of the world's leading authorities on the subject of fluid dynamics. In this book he draws on his extensive teaching experience to produce an informal introduction to theoretical fluid mechanics for undergraduate mathematicians or engineers. The book will initiate students into the creative use of data from experimental studies and theoretical analyses to generate practically useful mathematical models (including manageable computer models) of a broad range of important fluid flows

This volume presents a survey of our state of knowledge of the physical and dynamical processes involved in the Asian monsoon. Although traditionally the main emphasis has been on the study of the atmospheric component, it has long been known that the oceans play a vitally important part in determining the occurrence of this spectacular seasonal event. A scientific study of this phenomenon involves a detailed investigation of the dynamical processes which occur in both the atmosphere and the ocean, on timescales on up to

A Critical review of VAN : earthquake prediction from seismic electrical signals by M. J Lighthill ( Book )
9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The acronym VAN refers to Drs Varotsos, Alexopoulos and Nomicos, members of a group based in the University of Athens and led by Professor Varotsos (head of the Physics Department) which for over a decade has sought to use electric-field measurements between electrodes buried in the earth to predict earthquakes in Greece over periods of order one month or less. But is such "short-term" prediction achievable by the VAN approach (or by any other)? This book is an objective collection of the arguments for - and the counterarguments against - that approach, intended to help scientific readers arri

A general introduction to aeroacoustics and atmospheric sound by M. J Lighthill ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper uses a single unifying principle (based upon the nonlinear momentum-flux effects produced when different components of a motion transport different components of its momentum) to give a broad scientific background to several aspects of the interaction between airflows and atmospheric sound. First, it treats the generation of sound by airflows of many different types. These include, for example, jet-like flows involving convected turbulent motions -- with the resulting aeroacoustic radiation sensitively dependent on the Mach number of convection -and they include, as an extreme case, the supersonic boom (shock waves generated by a supersonically convected flow pattern). Next, the paper analyses sound propagation through nonuniformly moving airflows, and quantifies the exchange of energy between flow and sound; while, finally, it turns to problems of how sound waves on their own may generate the airflows known as acoustic streaming. aeroacoustics; turbulence; sonic boom
Report on the Final Panel Discussion on Computational Aeroacoustics by M. J Lighthill ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper by the Panel Chairman summarises some important conclusions about future prospects for aeroacoustics in general, and for computational aeroacoustics in particular, that were reached in the course of the Final Panel Discussion of the Workshop on Computational Aeroacoustics held from 6 to 9 April 1992 by ICASE and NASA-Langley Research Center. aeroacoustics; turbulence
