Perspectives in fluid dynamics : a collective introduction to current research( Book )

"Fluid mechanics is a rich and fascinating subject, with applications ranging from modelling the environment, to automotive design, to physiology, to astrophysics. At the same time, basic physical phenomena such as turbulence still present fundamental challenges. Conventional textbooks cannot hope to give graduate students more than an inkling of what topics are currently being researched, or how to make a choice between them. This book aims to rectify matters, at least in part. It consists of eleven chapters that each introduces a different branch of the subject. Though not exhaustive, the coverage is broad: thin-film flows, Saffman-Taylor fingering, flows in arteries and veins, convective and absolute instabilities, turbulence, natural convection, magnetohydrodynamics, solidification, geological fluid mechanics, oceanography and atmospheric dynamics are all introduced and reviewed by established authorities. Thus the book will not only be suitable for graduate-level courses but also for specialists seeking introductions to other areas."--Jacket

Topological aspects of the dynamics of fluids and plasmas by H. K Moffatt( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intimate relationship between three-dimensional vortex dynamics and topology was recognized as early as 1869 by Lord Kelvin, whose discoveries in fluid dynamics led to the development of knot theory as a well-defined branch of topology. It is only in the last 25 years, however, with the parallel stimulus of the development of magnetohydrodynamics in astrophysical and geophysical contexts, that the great potential of topological techniques in fluid and plasma has been fully recognized. This volume provides a comprehensive survey of this interdisciplinary field. The relevant background in knot theory, flow kinematics, dynamo theory, and relaxation under topological constraints, is provided by the introductory chapters of Part I. These themes are developed in the subsequent papers which are grouped under the following headings: Part II: Relaxation and Minimum Energy States; Part III: Helicity, Linkage, and Flow Topology; Part IV: The Euler Equations: Extremal Properties and Finite-Time Singularities; Part V: Vortex Interactions and the Structure of Turbulence; Part VI: Chaos, Instability, and Dynamo Theory
Environmental hazards : the fluid dynamics and geophysics of extreme events by H. K Moffatt( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the National University of Singapore hosted a Spring School on Fluid Dynamics and Geophysics of Environmental Hazards from 19 April to 2 May 2009. This volume contains the content of the nine short lecture courses given at this School, with a focus mainly on tropical cyclones, tsunamis, monsoon flooding and atmospheric pollution, all within the context of climate variability and change. The book provides an introduction to these topics from both mathematical and geophysical points of view, and will be invaluable for graduate students in applied mathematics, geophysics and engineering with an interest in this broad field of study, as well as for seasoned researchers in adjacent fields
Tubes, sheets, and singularities in fluid dynamics : proceedings of the NATO ARW, 2-7 September 2001, Zakopane, Poland by K Bajer( Book )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern experiments and numerical simulations show that the long-known coherent structures in turbulence take the form of elongated vortex tubes and vortex sheets. The evolution of vortex tubes may result in spiral structures which can be associated with the spectral power laws of turbulence. The mutual stretching of skewed vortex tubes, when they are close to each other, causes rapid growth of vorticity. Whether this process may or may not lead to a finite-time singularity is one of the famous open problems of fluid dynamics. This book contains the proceedings of the NATO ARW and IUTAM Symposium held in Zakopane, Poland, 2-7 September 2001. The papers presented, carefully reviewed by the International Scientific Committee, cover various aspects of the dynamics of vortex tubes and sheets and of their analogues in magnetohydrodynamics and in quantum turbulence. The book should be a useful reference for all researchers and students of modern fluid dynamics
Magnetohydrodynamics by René J Moreau( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) studies the interaction between the flow of an electrically conducting fluid and magnetic fields. It involves such diverse topics as the evolution and dynamics of astrophysical objects, thermonuclear fusion, metallurgy and semiconductor crystal growth, etc. Although the first ideas in magnetohydrodynamics appeared at the beginning of the last century, the "explosion" in theoretical and experimental studies occurred in the 1950s-60s. This state-of-the-art book aims at revising the evolution of ideas in various branches of magnetohydrodynamics (astrophysics, earth and solar dynamos, plasmas, MHD turbulence and liquid metals) and reviews current trends and challenges
IUTAM symposium on relations of shell, plate, beam, and 3D models : proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium on the Relations of Shell, Plate, Beam, and 3D Models, dedicated to the centenary of Ilia Vekua's birth, held in Tbilisi, Georgia, April 23-27, 2007 by G. M. L Gladwell( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This proceedings volume contains papers on the main topics reflecting the scientific programme of the symposium: hierarchical, refined mathematical and technical models of shells, plates, and beams; relation of 2D and 1D models to 3D linear, non-linear and physical models; junction problems. In particular, peculiarities of cusped shells, plates, and beams are emphasized and special attention is paid to junction, multibody and fluid-elastic shell (plate, beam) interaction problems and their applications. The contributions are theoretical, practical, and numerical in nature."--Jacket
IUTAM Symposium on Scaling in Solid Mechanics : proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium held in Cardiff, UK, 25-29 June, 2007 by G. M. L Gladwell( )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume constitutes the Proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium on 'Scaling in Solid Mechanics', held in Cardiff from 25th to 29th June 2007, to address topical issues in theoretical, experimental and computational aspects of scaling approaches to solid mechanics and related fields. Scaling is a rapidly expanding area of research which has multidisciplinary applications. The expertise represented at the Symposium was accordingly very wide, and many of the world's greatest authorities in their respective fields participated. Scaling methods apply wherever there is similarity across many scales or a need to bridge different scales, e.g. the nanoscale and macroscale. The emphasis at the Symposium was on fundamental issues such as mathematical foundations of scaling methods based on transformations and connections between multi-scale approaches and transformations. The Symposium remained focussed on fundamental research issues of practical significance. The topics considered included damage accumulation, growth of fatigue cracks, development of patterns of flaws in the earth's core and in ice, abrasiveness of rough surfaces, and so on. The Symposium showed that scaling methods cannot be reduced solely to dimensional analysis and fractal approaches. Modern scaling approaches consist of a great diversity of techniques. These proceedings contain lectures on state-of-the-art developments in self-similar solutions, fractal models, models involving interplay between different scales, size effects in fracture of solids and bundles of fibres, scaling in problems of fracture mechanics, nanomechanics, contact mechanics and testing of materials by indentation, scaling issues in mechanics of agglomeration of adhesive particles, and in biomimetic of adhesive contact
La mécanique des fluides by H. K Moffatt( Visual )

Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette : Conférence donnée le 18 Juin 2005 par Henri KEITH MOFFATT. La dynamique des fluides est un sujet qui s'applique largement : en biologie, en géophysique et en astrophysique, en océanographie et en météorologie, ainsi qu'en génies chimique, nucléaire, aéronautique, hydraulique et en écologie. Dans tous ces contextes, le fluide, qui est soit en phase liquide, soit gazeuse, soit sous forme de plasma (gaz ionisé), est traité comme un milieu continu représenté par les champs de densité, de pression et de vitesse satisfaisant la fameuse équation de Navier-Stokes. Cette équation décrit des phénomènes se produisant sur une très grande gamme d'échelles de longueur, allant de l'échelle 'sub-micron' des phénomènes biologiques à un extrême, jusqu'à l'échelle 'super-parsec' des phénomènes cosmologiques et astrophysiques à l'autre. Nous présenterons un point de vue sur ces phénomènes et discuterons en particulier l'effet dynamo, qui correspond à l'auto-excitation du champ géomagnétique due aux mouvements se produisant dans le noyau liquide terrestre, problème classique pour lequel des progrès remarquables ont été réalisés depuis ces cinq dernières décennies. Deux aspects de ce problème peuvent être illustrés par des phénomènes analogues, mais plus simples, provenant de la dynamique des corps rigides. Tout d'abord, l'auto-excitation d'un champ magnétique dans un fluide conducteur est associée à la chiralité de l'écoulement turbulent, propriété que possède le 'rattleback', toupie asymétrique qui présente un curieux comportement quand on la fait tourner sur une table. Nous montrerons ensuite que l'instabilité dynamo est dissipatrice par nature, car il faut de la dissipation par effet Joule pour permettre l'intensification du champ magnétique, ceci sur l'échelle du temps de dissipation qui est de l'ordre de 10,000 ans dans le contexte terrestre. L'instabilité dissipatrice peut être illustrée par le phénomène familier de 'l'oeuf montant'. La conférence sera agrémentée par quelques démonstrations simples de ce genre d'instabilités

The interaction of turbulance with rapid uniform shear by H. K Moffatt( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The linear inviscid response of an initially weak random velocity perturbation to a uniform shearing motion is analysed, first in terms of the individual Fourier components of the perturbation field, then in terms of the development of its spectrum tensor. This analysis reveals that the dominant contribution, both to the disturbance energy and to the Reynolds stress generated, comes ultimately from eddies having a cylindrical structure, the axes of the cylinders being parallel to the shear force. The results are relevant to two aspects of turbulent shear flow: (1) the equilibrium structure of a small turbulent 'parcel' of fluid subjected to persistent almost uniform shear, and (2) the structure of the 'large eddies' which derive their energy directly from the shearing of the mean flow. Certain aspects of the distortion of turbulence by shear that is weakly non-uniform are also considered, and it is found that the gradient in the Reynolds stress generated tends to make the mean velocity profile propagate elastically as a shear wave, suggesting that in certain respects turbulent fluid behaves like a visco-elastic fluid in its response to shear, Finally, the relevance of these results to the phenomenon of the propagation of sharp turbulent-nonturbulent interfaces is discussed.
