Computational Mechanics of Discontinua by Antonio A. Munjiza

By Antonio A. Munjiza

Mechanics of Discontinua is the 1st ebook to comprehensively take on either the idea ofthis quickly constructing subject and the purposes that span a huge box of medical and engineering disciplines, from conventional engineering to physics of particulates, nano-technology and micro-flows. Authored through a number one researcher who has been on the innovative of discontinua simulation advancements during the last 15 years, the publication is prepared into 4 components: introductory wisdom, solvers, tools and purposes. within the first bankruptcy a brief revision of Continuum Mechanics including tensorial calculus is brought. additionally, a quick creation to the finite point technique is given. the second one a part of the ebook introduces key points of the topic. those contain a various box of purposes, including primary theoretical and algorithmic elements universal to all equipment of Mechanics of Discontinua. The 3rd a part of the publication proceeds with crucial computational and simulation tools together with Discrete point equipment, the mixed Finite-Discrete aspect strategy, Molecular Dynamics tools, Fracture and Fragmentation solvers and Fluid Coupling. After those the reader is brought to functions stretching from conventional engineering and (such as mining, oil undefined, powders) to nanotechnology, clinical and science.Content:

Flow and Transport in Porous Media and Fractured Rock: From Classical Methods to Modern Approaches

During this regular reference of the sphere, theoretical and experimental techniques to movement, hydrodynamic dispersion, and miscible displacements in porous media and fractured rock are thought of. varied methods are mentioned and contrasted with one another. the 1st technique relies at the classical equations of circulation and shipping, referred to as 'continuum models'.
