Rescuing valves in distress
Ships in 3-5 business days
Flows in safety valves, which deeply penetrate the chaotic domain, are remarkable examples of the application of the laws of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. Incidents and accidents with these... More > devices stem from our lack of understanding about how flows expend their motive power. This area of physics has remained in the shadows. Scientists have been trying for centuries to understand their operation. This book will explore this topic. In certain facilities, fluid flows freely and excites the structure containing it, weakening and sometimes destroying it. To avoid these dangerous zones, the author who has been involved for a long time in the operation of valves, proposes efficient solutions based on a new concept in physics: the principle of worst action.< Less
