Fractals, scaling, and growth far from equilibrium by Paul Meakin( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growth, dissolution, and pattern formation in geosystems by B Jamtveit( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is based on the 1997 Kongsberg seminar, organised by the Department of Geology at the University of Oslo. The seminar brought together scientists from various disciplines, involved in the study of growth and dissolution of minerals and pattern formation in geosystems. The volume includes several chapters dealing with non equilibrium growth processes and pattern formation, which have recently become recognised as much more common in geological systems than hitherto thought." "This volume will be of interest not only to a wide audience within the geoscience community, but also to scientists working in related disciplines interested in mineral growth and dissolution processes in general and the coupling of such processes with transport and deformation in sedimentary and metamorphic systems."--Jacket
Growth Patterns in Physical Sciences and Biology by Juan-Manuel Garcia-Ruiz( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past decade interest in the formation of complex disorderly patterns far from equilibrium has grown rapidly. This interest has been stim ulated by the development of new approaches (based primarily on fractal geometry) to the quantitative description of complex structures, increased understanding of non-linear phenomena and the introduction of a variety of models (such as the diffusion-limited aggregation model) that provide paradigms for non-equilibrium growth phenomena. Advances in computer technology have played a crucial role in both the experimental and theoret ical aspects of this enterprise. Substantial progress has been made towards the development of comprehensive understanding of non-equilibrium growth phenomena but most of our current understanding is based on simple com puter models. Pattern formation processes are important in almost all areas of science and technology, and, clearly, pattern growth pervades biology. Very often remarkably similar patterns are found in quite diverse systems. In some case (dielectric breakdown, electrodeposition, fluid-fluid displacement in porous media, dissolution patterns and random dendritic growth for example) the underlying causes of this similarity is quite well understood. In other cases (vascular trees, nerve cells and river networks for example) we do not yet know if a fundamental relationship exists between the mechanisms leading the formation of these structures

Fractals and disorderly growth by Paul Meakin( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An introduction to fractal (a structure with irregular or fragmented shaped at all scales of measurement) geometry and math-generated fractals. Describes self-similar and self-affine fractal structures, looks at examples of fractals in nature as well as in the laboratory, and covers approaches to understanding fractal origins through theory and computer simultion
Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Model for Reactive Transport and Mineral Precipitation( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new Lagrangian particle model based on smoothed particle hydrodynamics was used to simulate pore scale precipitation reactions. The side-by-side injection of reacting solutions into two halves of a two-dimensional granular porous medium was simulated. Precipitation on grain surfaces occurred along a narrow zone in the middle of the domain, where the reacting solutes mixed to generate a supersaturated reaction product. The numerical simulations qualitatively reproduced the behavior observed in related laboratory experiments
Multiphase flow in complex fracture apertures under a wide range of flow conditions( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary purpose of this project is to use a combination of computer modeling and laboratory experiments to obtain a better understanding of multiphase flow in geometrically complex fracture apertures under a wide range of flow conditions. Because traditional grid-based numerical methods perform poorly for multiphase flows with complex dynamic interfaces due to problems such as artificial interface broadening and grid entanglement, the modeling component of the program relies heavily on particle based methods. In particle-based models, the fluid-fluid interfaces move as the particles representing the fluids move--there is no need for explicit interface tracking, and no artificial front broadening. In addition, particle-based methods rigorously conserve mass because each particle represents a fixed mass of fluid and the number of particles does not change unless particles leave or enter the computational domain (to represent fluid flow into or out of the system). Because different model approaches have characteristic strengths and weaknesses, three different classes of particle-based models (lattice Boltzmann, dissipative particle dynamics and smoothed particle hydrodynamics) are being employed in this program. This will allow us to achieve our objective of simulating multiphase/multicomponent flow under a wide range of flow conditions for a wide range of fluid properties

Growth, Dissolution and Pattern Formation in Geosystems( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the proceedings of the 11th Kongsberg seminar, held at the Norwegian Mining Museum in the city of Kongsberg, about 70 km Southwest of Oslo. The Kongs berg district is known for numerous Permian vein deposits, rich in native silver. Mining activity in the area lasted for more than 300 years, finally ceasing in 1957. The first eight Kongsberg seminars, organized by professor Arne Bj0rlykke, now director of the Norwegian Geological Survey, were focused on ore-forming processes. These seminars have always been a meeting point for people with a variety of geological backgrounds. Since 1995, the Kongsberg seminars have focussed on geological processes, rather than on specific geological systems, and the selection of invited speakers has been strongly influenced by their interest in the dynamics of geological systems. In 1995 and 1996, various aspects of fluid flow and transport in rocks, were emphasized. The first "Kongsberg proceedings" (of the 1995 seminar) published by Chapman and Hall (Jamtveit and Yardley, 1997) contained 17 chapters dealing with a wide range of topics from field based studies of the effects of fluid flow in sedimentary and metamorphic rocks to computer simulations of flow in complex porous and fractured media. In 1997, the focus was changed to growth, and dissolution processes in geological systems
