Offshore Structural Engineering: reliability and risk by Srinivasan Chandrasekaran

By Srinivasan Chandrasekaran

Successfully estimate possibility and reliability, and convey cutting edge, but trustworthy designs utilizing the methods defined in Offshore Structural Engineering: Reliability and hazard Assessment. A hands-on consultant for practising pros, this booklet covers the reliability of offshore constructions with an emphasis at the protection and reliability of offshore amenities in the course of research, layout, inspection, and making plans.

Since hazard review and reliability estimates are usually in accordance with chance, the writer makes use of techniques of chance and statistical research to handle the dangers and uncertainties interested by layout. He explains the techniques with transparent illustrations and tutorials, offers a bankruptcy on likelihood concept, and covers quite a few levels of the method that come with information assortment, research, layout and development, and commissioning.

In addition, the writer discusses advances in geometric structural types for deep-water oil exploration, the rational therapy of uncertainties in structural engineering, and the security and serviceability of civil engineering and different offshore structures.

An important consultant to leading edge and trustworthy structural layout, this book:

  • Defines the structural reliability theory
  • Explains the reliability research of structures
  • Examines the reliability of offshore structures
  • Describes the probabilistic distribution for vital loading variables
  • Includes tools of reliability analysis
  • Addresses threat review and more

Offshore Structural Engineering: Reliability and possibility Assessment

offers an in-depth research of threat research and evaluate and highlights very important points of offshore structural reliability. The booklet serves as a realistic connection with engineers and scholars taken with naval structure, ocean engineering, civil/structural, and petroleum engineering.

Conjugate Heat and Mass Transfer in Heat Mass Exchanger by Li-Zhi Zhang

By Li-Zhi Zhang

Conjugate warmth and Mass move in warmth Mass Exchanger Ducts bridges the distance among basics and up to date discoveries, making it a priceless device for somebody trying to extend their wisdom of warmth exchangers. the 1st publication out there to hide conjugate warmth and mass move in warmth exchangers, writer Li-Zhi Zhang is going past the fundamentals to hide fresh developments in gear for strength use and environmental keep an eye on (such as warmth and moisture restoration ventilators, hole fiber membrane modules for humidification/dehumidification, membrane modules for air purification, desiccant wheels for air dehumidification and effort restoration, and honeycomb desiccant beds for warmth and moisture control). Explaining the information in the back of and the functions of conjugated warmth and mass move makes it possible for the layout, research, and optimization of warmth and mass exchangers. Combining this lately chanced on info into one resource makes it a useful reference for execs, teachers, and different events.

  • A research-based procedure emphasizing numerical equipment in warmth mass transfer
  • Introduces easy info for exchangers' layout (such as friction components and the Nusselt/Sherwood numbers), tips on how to clear up conjugated difficulties, the modeling of assorted warmth and mass exchangers, and more
  • The first ebook to incorporate lately came upon developments of mass move and fluid circulation in channels constituted of new materials
  • Includes illustrations to visually depict the book's key concepts

Aerodynamic Data of Space Vehicles by Claus Weiland

By Claus Weiland

The ability and caliber of the atmospheric flight functionality of area flight automobiles is characterised by means of their aerodynamic facts bases. a whole aerodynamic information base might surround the coefficients of the static longitudinal and lateral motions and the comparable dynamic coefficients.

In this ebook the aerodynamics of 27 autos are thought of. just a couple of of them did quite fly. consequently the aerodynamic info bases are frequently no longer entire, specifically whilst the tasks or courses have been roughly without warning stopped, frequently as a result of political judgements. Configurational layout stories or the improvement of demonstrators
usually occur with diminished or incomplete aerodynamic info units. as a result a few facts units base simply at the program of 1 of the next instruments: semi-empirical layout equipment, wind tunnel checks, numerical simulations. In to this point a excessive percent of the knowledge offered is incomplete and must be verified.

Flight mechanics wishes the aerodynamic coefficients as functionality of loads of variables. The allocation of the aerodynamic coefficients for a selected flight operation at a particular trajectory element is carried out through an aerodynamic version. The institution of such types is defined during this book.

This booklet is written for graduate and doctoral scholars to provide them perception into the aerodynamics of many of the flight configurations. extra for layout and improvement engineers in and at learn institutes (including universities) looking for a suitable car form, in addition to for non-specialists, who should be in
this topic. The e-book should be important, too, within the case that approach experiences require of their notion stages the choice of compatible motor vehicle shapes.

Technische Fluidmechanik (German Edition) by Herbert Sigloch

By Herbert Sigloch

Dieses erfolgreiche Lehrbuch vermittelt die Grundlagen der Fluidmechanik und deren praxisbezogene Anwendung, geht jedoch über eine Einführung hinaus.

Die strömungstechnischen Phänomene sind nicht nur beschrieben und - soweit möglich - mathematisch exakt oder näherungsweise dargestellt, sondern auch weitgehend physikalisch begründet und erklärt. Zum besseren Verständnis werden die Erscheinungen der Fluidmechanik ausgehend von der Festkörpermechanik veranschaulicht, dabei werden Analogien zu anderen Fachgebieten aufgezeigt. Dargestellt sind die Statik und Dynamik sowohl der Flüssigkeiten als auch der Gase und Dämpfe. Bei der Gasdynamik sind Unterschall- und Überschallströmungen einbezogen. Eine Einführung in die moderne numerische Strömungsmechanik, die Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), ergänzt den Stoff.

Mit über a hundred Übungsbeispielen und kompletten Lösungen. Der Anhang enthält technisch wichtige Tabellen sowie Diagramme für Stoffgrößen und Beiwerte der Strömungstechnik.

Das Buch richtet sich sowohl an Studierende von Fachhochschulen und Technischen Universitäten als auch an Ingenieure in den Bereichen Strömungstechnik und Strömungsmaschinen.

Geometric theory of incompressible flows with applications by Tian Ma

By Tian Ma

This monograph offers a geometrical conception for incompressible move and its functions to fluid dynamics. the most goal is to check the soundness and transitions of the constitution of incompressible flows and its functions to fluid dynamics and geophysical fluid dynamics. the improvement of the speculation and its functions is going well past its unique motivation of the learn of oceanic dynamics. The authors current a considerable develop within the use of geometric and topological the way to study and classify incompressible fluid flows. The procedure introduces really leading edge rules to the learn of the partial differential equations of fluid dynamics. One really worthwhile improvement is a rigorous concept for boundary layer separation of incompressible fluids. The research of incompressible flows has significant interconnected components. the 1st is the advance of a world geometric thought of divergence-free fields on basic two-dimensional compact manifolds. the second one is the learn of the constitution of speed fields for two-dimensional incompressible fluid flows ruled through the Navier-Stokes equations or the Euler equations. encouraged by means of the learn of difficulties in geophysical fluid dynamics, this system of analysis during this booklet seeks to enhance a brand new mathematical thought, protecting shut hyperlinks to physics alongside the best way. In go back, the speculation is utilized to actual difficulties, with extra difficulties but to be explored. the fabric is appropriate for researchers and complicated graduate scholars attracted to nonlinear PDEs and fluid dynamics
