Escaping Chaos - Energetics Applications By Michel Pluviose
eBook (PDF): $8.99
On a seemingly calm, windless day thousands upon thousands of molecules constantly move and collide in the microscopic world without the least bit of notice paid in the macroscopic world. We feel... More > safe. Then the wind picks up. The kinetic energy generated can be partially captured in wind turbines. Sometimes, wind takes the form of gales or tornadoes, wreaking havoc all around and leaving considerable damage in its trail. Under these dreadful conditions, none of this energy can be recovered. In these extreme situations, what do we do? Nothing! Similar phenomena appear in installations carrying gaseous fluids. In certain cases, flows have strong motive power that excite the structure containing it, weakening and sometimes destroying the structure. The purpose of this book is to lay out a new approach in physics for calming these chaotic and violent flows.< Less

Stochastic Processes in Mechanical Engineering By J.J.H. Brouwers
Paperback: $9.80
Prints in 3-5 business days
Stochastic or random vibrations occur in a variety of applications of mechanical engineering. Examples are: the dynamics of a vehicle on an irregular road surface; the variation in time of... More > thermodynamic variables in municipal waste incinerators due to fluctuations in heating value of the waste; the vibrations of an airplane flying through turbulence; the fluctuating wind loads acting on civil structures; the response of off-shore structures to random wave loading. Attention is focussed on problems of external noise. That is, models of mechanical engineering structures are considered where the source of random behavior comes from outside: e.g. a prescribed random force or a prescribed random displacement. The structures inhibit inertia, damping and restoring, linear and non-linear. Questions addressed are: how do these structures respond to random excitation, and how to quantify the random behavior of response variables in a manner that an engineer is able to make rational design decisions.< Less
