About the Book :- - Includes fundamental equations derived from the principle of conservation of energy - Describes the solution of the fundamental problems of the stress field near a crack tip in an elastic, isotopic material using the Airy stress function - Discusses how the plastic zone size in front of the crack tip can be estimated and the effect this plastic zone has on the stress computation and failure prediction of a cracked solid - Explores the J-integral value and its usefulness in predicting when a crack should propagate - Examines crack propagation behavior under cyclic loading or fatigue - Introduces realistic problem geometries in which a stress-free boundary in addition to the two crack surfaces may be present near the crack tip - Covers different numerical techniques that can be used to obtain the stress intensity factors for problem geometries with various loading conditions A complete solutions manual is available upon course adoption. Almost all books available on fracture mechanics cover the majority of topics presented in this book, and often much, much more. While great as references, this makes teaching from them more difficult because the materials are not typically presented in the order that most professors cover them in their lectures and more than half the information presented is not covered in an introductory course at all. Focusing on the needs of students and professors, Fundamentals of Fracture Mechanics offers an introduction to the discipline through careful editing and mindfulness toward the audience. The book begins with a review of the fundamentals of continuum mechanics and the theory of elasticity relevant to fracture mechanics. The following material has been carefully selected, only including topics important enough to be covered in a first course on fracture mechanics. Except for the last chapter, no advanced topics are covered. Therefore, instructors of elementary fracture mechanics courses can easily cover the entire book in a three-unit graduate-level course without having to spend too much time picking and choosing appropriate topics for the course from the vast knowledge presented in most fracture mechanic books available today. Drawing on over 20 years of teaching, the author supplies practical and useful resources, including practice exercises designed to facilitate enjoyable learning and reference for further study. His clear, concise coverage of essential information makes the book ideal not only for an introductory course but also for self-study. Contents :- 1. Fundamentals of the Theory of Elasticity 2. Elastic Crack Model 3. Energy Balance 4. Effect of Plasticity 5. J-Integral 6. Fatique Crack Growth 7. Stress Intensity Factors for Some Practical Crack Geometries 8. Numerical Analysis 9. Westergaard Stress Function 10. Advanced Topics Index.

About the Book Impact phenomena are ubiquitous in sports, musical instruments, vehicle collisions, ballistics and natural disasters. A branch of physics that deals with the forces, displacements and material failure associated with impact, is called as impact mechanics. The application of impact mechanics in design of engineering systems, can be termed as applied impact mechanics. This subject demands a thorough appreciation of complex processes involving contact interfaces, nonlinear deformation, fracture and fragmentation. This book presents impact phenomena as a focused application of diverse topics with a balanced treatment of theory, experiment and computation. In the first part, this book covers fundamental ideas of uniaxial and multidimensional impact waves generated during the contact of colliding bodies including a concise introduction to the relevant concepts of rigid body impact mechanics. In the second part, contemporary strategies employed in experimental, theoretical and computational techniques are delineated for applications to vehicle collisions and ballistics. This text has sufficient content to be offered for a single semester course; or, can be used as a supplementary reference for other courses on engineering design and analysis such as advanced mechanics of solids, structural dynamics, earthquake engineering, bio-mechanics, impact and vibration engineering, etc. This book will be of interest to senior undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students of all branches of mechanical sciences.

Published nearly a decade ago, Fluid Machinery: Performance, Analysis, and Design quickly became popular with students, professors, and professionals because of its comprehensive and comprehensible introduction to the fluid mechanics of turbomachinery. Renamed to reflect its wider scope and reorganized content, Fluid Machinery: Application, Selection, and Design, Second Edition provides a more logical flow of information that will enhance understanding. In particular, it presents a consistent notation within and across chapters, updating material when appropriate. Although the authors do account for the astounding growth in the field of computational fluid dynamics that has occurred since publication of the first edition, this text emphasizes traditional "one-dimensional" layout and points the way toward using CFD for turbomachinery design and analysis. PRESENTS EXTENSIVE EXAMPLES AND DESIGN EXERCISES TO ILLUSTRATE PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS AND MACHINE GEOMETRY By focusing on the preliminary design and selection of equipment to meet performance specifications, the authors promote a basic yet thorough understanding of the subject. They cover topics including gas and hydraulic turbines and equipment that is widely used in the industry, such as compressors, blowers, fans, and pumps. This book promotes a pragmatic approach to turbomachinery application and design, examining a realistic array of difficulties and conflicting requirements.

About the Book "Atul has championed the finite volume method which is now the industry standard. He knows the conventional method of discretizing differential equations but has never been satisfied with it. As a result, he has developed a principle that physical laws that characterize the differential equations should be reflected at every stage of discretization and every stage of approximation. This new CFD book is comprehensive and has a stamp of originality of the author. It will bring students closer to the subject and enable them to contribute to it" - Dr. K. Muralidhar, IIT Kanpur This book is primarily for a first one-semester course on CFD; in mechanical, chemical, and aeronautical engineering. Almost all the existing books on CFD assume knowledge of mathematics in general and differential calculus as well as numerical methods in particular; thus, limiting the readership mostly to the postgraduate curriculum. In this book, an attempt is made to simplify the subject for readers who have little or no experience in CFD, and even without prior knowledge of fluid-dynamics, heat-transfer and numerical-methods. The novelty in this book is on simplification of the level of mathematics in CFD to school education, by presenting physical-law (instead of the traditional differential equations) and discrete (independent of continuous) mathematics based algebraic-formulations.Another distinguishing feature of the present book is to effectively link the theory with the computer-program (code). This is done with more pictorial as well as detailed explanation of implementation of the numerical methodology. Furthermore, the book is structured for a module-by-module code-development of the 2D numerical formulation; the codes are given for heat conduction, advection and convection. The present subject involves learning to develop and effectively use a product - CFD software. The details for the CFD development presented here is the main part of CFD software. Furthermore, CFD application and analysis are presented by carefully designed example as well as exercise problems. The reader is trained for a job as CFD developer as well as CFD application engineer; and can also lead to start-ups on the development of "apps" (CFD application software) for various engineering applications. CONTENTS Part 1: Introduction & Essentials (1. Introduction, 2. Introduction to CFD, 3. Essentials of Fluid-Dynamics & Heat-Transfer, and 4. Essential of Numerical Methods). Part 2: CFD for a Cartesian Geometry (5. Computational Heat Conduction (CHC), 6. Computational Heat Advection, 7. Computational Heat Convection, 8. CFD: Finite Volume Method, 9. CFD on a Staggered Grid, and 10. CFD on a Co-located Grid).Part 3: CFD for a Complex Geometry (11. CHC and 12. CFD, on a Curvilinear Grid). Supplementary Material: It can be freely downloaded from the website www.cfdmadeeasy.org - consists of (a) fluid-dynamic movies, (b) computer programs, and (c) colored version of all the figures presented in the book. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Dr. Atul Sharma is currently Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, with a teaching experience of more than 15 years. After completing his M.E. from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, he worked as a Lecturer at National Institute of Technology, Hamirpur (H.P.), where he introduced and taught a course on CFD.

DESCRIPTION In this book, quantum mechanics is developed from the outset on a relativistic basis, using the superposition principle, Lorentz invariance and gauge invariance. Nonrelativistic quantum mechanics as well as classical relativistic mechanics appear as special cases. They are the sources of familiar names such as "orbital angular momentum", "spin-orbit coupling" and "magnetic moment" for operators of the relativistic quantum formalism. The theory of binaries, in terms of differential equations, is treated for the first time in this book. These have the mathematical structure of the corresponding one-body equations (Klein-Gordon for two spinless particles, Dirac for two spinor particles) with a relativistically reduced mass. They allow the calculation of radiative corrections via the vector potential operator. This second edition of the successful textbook adds various new sections on relativistic quantum chemistry and on the relativistic treatment of the proton in hydrogen. Others chapters have been expanded, e.g. on hyperfinite interactions, or carefully revisited.

About the Book This book is an attempt to present the essentials of radiation heat transfer to graduate students, practicing engineers, scientists, technologists and the senior undergraduate students, in a form and size palatable to them. The focus of the book is to cover only the absolute essentials required to gain an understanding of radiation heat transfer with which the reader can attempt to take on more challenging problems. The explanations are intentionally kept simple and lucid. The book follows an easy to read conversational style. All concepts are reinforced by carefully chosen and fully worked examples. Adequate number of exercise problems is provided at the end of every chapter. In a significant departure from other books on this subject, this book completely dispenses with the network method to solve problems of radiation heat transfer in surfaces. The book instead presents the powerful radiosity-irradiation method and shows how this technique can be used to solve problems of radiation in enclosures made of one to any number of surfaces. The network method is not easily scalable. Secondly, the book introduces atmospheric radiation, which is now being considered as a potentially important area, in which engineers can contribute to the technology of remote sensing and atmospheric sciences in general, by a better understanding of radiation. Finally, a new chapter on inverse problems in radiation is included, expected to be of use to both engineers and atmospheric scientists. The book is an outgrowth of the course on radiation the author has been teaching at IIT Madras, India for the last fifteen years. The book contains just the right material for a one semester course and is not an exhaustive treatise on radiation. The size of the book is consistent with the above objective and the need to retain reader interest in an age of decreasing attention spans and premium placed on brevity. Contents 1. Introduction 2. Black body radiation 3. Radiative properties of non-black surfaces 4. View factors 5. Enclosure analysis 6. Gas radiation 7. Atmospheric radiation 8. Inverse problems in radiation About the Author Dr. C. Balaji is currently a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras. He graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Guindy Engineering College, Chennai, India in 1990 (University Gold Medal) and obtained his M.Tech (1992) and Ph.D. (1995) both from IIT Madras in the area of Heat Transfer and Thermal Sciences. His areas of interest include heat transfer, optimization, computational radiation, atmospheric radiation and inverse heat transfer. He has been consistently rated as a very good teacher by students at IIT Madras. He has close to 125 peer reviewed journal articles to his credit and has undertaken several sponsored research projects for the government and industry. He is a recipient of the Humboldt Fellowship of Germany (2005), Young Faculty Recognition Award of IIT Madras (2007), Prof. K. N.

About the Book Optimization can be mathematically defined as seeking the maximum or minimum of a function of usually several variables. In engineering terms, optimization seeks to obtain the "best" possible design where the "best" could mean a highly fuel efficient car or a low cost refrigerator or a heat exchanger with high heat transfer to pressure drop ration. In each of the above examples, the device must first "work" and satisfy certain conditions known as "constraints". In the light of the above, it is clear that optimization lies at the root of engineering and every engineer is "expected" to optimize the system(s) he/she designs! However, optimization has been largely neglected in thermal sciences. This is reflected by the scarcity of good texts on this subject, save a few, despite the ever increasing importance of design and optimization in thermal systems. Other major factors that stunted the growth of the field were the requirement of computational resources in terms of computing power and the availability of software to confront challenging optimization problems. These are no longer relevant in this day and age as the world has seen an explosive growth in both computing power and optimization methods and tools. Hence, the stage is set for the engineer to seek the optimum in thermal sciences, instead of just being content with having a design that "works". Keeping this in mind, this new text introduces the general principles involved in system design and optimization as applicable to thermal systems, followed by the methods to accomplish them. The book feature several surprising examples and follow a conversational style. The book, for the first time, introduce contemporary techniques like Genetic Algorithms, Simulated Annealing, and Bayesian Inference in the context of optimization of thermal systems. There is a separate chapter devoted to inverse problems in thermal systems, which is yet another unique feature in the textbook. Examples in each chapter will clarify the concepts and methods presented and end-of-chapter problems will supplement the material presented and enhance the learning process. Contents 1. Introduction to design and system design 2. System Simulation 3. Curve fitting 4. Optimization-Basic ideas and formulation 5. Lagrange multipliers 6. Search methods 7. Linear programming and Dynamic Programming 8. Non-traditional optimization techniques 9. Inverse problems Bibliography Random number table Index About the Author Dr.C.Balaji is currently a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Madras.

Modern computer simulations make stress analysis easy. As they continue to replace classical mathematical methods of analysis, these software programs require users to have a solid understanding of the fundamental principles on which they are based. Applied Mechanics of Solids is a powerful tool for understanding how to take advantage of these revolutionary computer advances in the field of solid mechanics. Beginning with a description of the physical and mathematical laws that govern deformation in solids, the text presents modern constitutive equations, as well as analytical and computational methods of stress analysis and fracture mechanics. It also addresses the nonlinear theory of deformable rods, membranes, plates, and shells, and solutions to important boundary and initial value problems in solid mechanics. The author uses the step-by-step manner of a blackboard lecture to explain problem solving methods, often providing the solution to a problem before its derivation is presented. Borrowing from the classical literature on linear elasticity, plasticity, and structural mechanics, this book: Introduces concepts, analytical techniques, and numerical methods used to analyze deformation, stress, and failure in materials or components Discusses the use of finite element software for stress analysis Uses simple analytical solutions to explain how to set up properly posed boundary and initial-value problems Provides an understanding of algorithms implemented in software code Complemented by the author’s website, which features problem sets and sample code for self study, this book offers a crucial overview of problem solving for solid mechanics. It will help readers make optimal use of commercial finite element programs to achieve the most accurate prediction results possible.

About the Book This book is intended for senior Undergraduate and beginning Post graduate students in the disciplines of Mechanical and Aerospace engineering. Readers will find the arrangement and discussion of the topics to be quite different from the traditional style. A broad range of basic concepts is presented in Chapter 2. This is followed by the derivation of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in Chapter 3. The mathematical nature of the solutions to these equations is discussed in Chapter 4. In this context, the notion of singular perturbation solutions - outer and inner, is introduced. Chapter 5 deals with the inviscid (outer) solutions, while the boundary layer (inner) solutions are derived in Chapter 6. The separation of the boundary layer, its consequences and drag are also discussed in detail. Analytical solutions, both parallel and creeping flow solutions, are presented in Chapter 7. Turbulent flows are discussed in Chapters 8, 9 and 10. The nature of turbulent flows and the importance of the turbulent mean flow are discussed in Chapter 8. Chapters 9 and 10 build on the latter idea in the context of internal and external flows respectively. Contents Preface 1. Introduction 2. Basic Concepts in Incompressible Flows 3. The Incompressible Navier Stokes Equations 4. Solutions to the Incompressible Navier-Stokes Equations 5. Potential Flows 6. Laminar Boundary Layer Theory 7. Analytical Solutions to the Incompressible Navier Stokes Equations 8. Tubulent Flows 9. Turbulent Internal Flows 10.Tubulent External Flows Index About the Author Dr. V.

'Engineering acoustics' is a teaching textbook that can serve as a tool for self-study and as a compendium for lectures as well. It is one of the author's most important goals not only to describe how the topic develops but also why a specific way is chosen. The explanations do not restrict themselves to mathematical formulas. Only the illustrative explanation relying on the reader's imagination creates comprehension. This book presents the foundations of that what nowadays seems necessary to make our environment quieter - in buildings as well as in the open air. Fundamental chapters on the physics and perception of sound precede those on noise reduction methods. The last chapter deals with microphones and loudspeakers. Specific measurement procedures are discussed throughout the book. Not more than the usual mathematical skills such as calculus are required. The appendix gives a short introduction on the use of complex amplitudes in acoustics. Contents Perception of sound Fundamentals of wave propagation Propagation and radiation of sound Structure-borne sound Elastic isolation Sound absorbers Fundamentals of room acoustics Building acoustics Silencers Diffraction Electro-acoustic transducers for air-borne sound Level arithmetics Complex pointers References Index

About the Author This book is intended for Undergraduate students in Engineering who are doing their first level Thermodynamics course. Knowledge of thermodynamics is essential for students in branches such as mechanical and aerospace engineering, as it relates to the top level design aspects of many devices that they will encounter. The first level course in a sequence of courses on thermodynamics is quite important since almost all the concepts are taught in this course. Higher level courses deal with applications and their realizations in practical devices. Wherever possible, I have alluded to these aspects in this book, in order to give the students some idea of what they can expect next and how to utilize the knowledge gained here for actual applications. Readers who have read other text books on Engineering Thermodynamics should be able to see that the development of the material in this book to be quite different. Numerous examples are worked out in each chapter with the objective of illustrating how the concepts are used for the thermodynamic analysis of devices. Many of the examples are continued across chapters, with increasing complexity as they build on concepts that are discussed in each new chapter. My objective in following this approach is that, students, given the task of analyzing a new device should be able to do so easily with the knowledge gained from the examples and they should also be adequately prepared to do the higher level courses in thermodynamics, refrigeration, turbomachines, IC engines and gas dynamics.

About the Book: The word "research" derives its origin from the French word "recherche" that means "an intensive force to search" which epitomizes the intensity and passion characterizing the pursuit of research. This pursuit is lifelong and is often fraught with alternating peaks and troughs in achieving the stated outcomes and objectives. It is this elusive nature of "success" in research, "optimal disenchantment" with what one has achieved so far and the firm belief that ones best is yet to come that push the frontiers of human enterprise and creativity. From extrinsic validation like prizes, rewards, name, fame reputation and so on, the journey of research invariably leads a serious practitioner into a space where the intrinsic joy of finding out something new becomes the key and only driver. The reward is intrinsically present and is in the work itself. This has close parallels with the Bhagavad Gita that goads man to work at his best without worrying about the fruits of the labour. Often, true success in research can be truly felt only we are in the autumn of our lives or after we pass away – Time is the highest court to decide on this matter! The ultimate goal of any researcher is to get that “immortal status” – Becoming ‘ananta “ – “infinite”. Drawing from contemporary theories on intelligence, hard work, flow, creativity and motivation and by looking at lessons from history combined with the authors own research experience at IIT Madras, this book attempts to look at the spirit behind the pursuit of research, particularly scientific research and ways to make this a real joy. The book is not intended to be a text or treatise on research methodology. While the book is intended for all researchers, it is specially targeted at motivating budding researchers and those in the early years of their research careers. Contents 1 Introduction 2 Research Methodology - A breezy overview 3 The (Don’t know)2 Problem and Ph.D 4 Becoming a top-notch researcher 5 What is creativity? 6 The genesis of creativity 7 Creativity in modelling - An uncommon example 8 Creative plotting and interpretation of results 9 Some outstanding examples of creativity from eclectic fields 10 Hardwork and Research 11 The 10000 hour rule 12 A conducive environment is neither necessary nor sufficient 13 Role of stress in research 14 Getting the right problem to solve 15 Flow and creativity in research 16 What we learn from history 17 Rejection of a paper is not a big deal! 18 Saying NO to Plagiarism 19 Out of the box thinking 20 My philosophy of research 21 The Takeaway References About the Author Dr.C.Balaji is currently a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras.

The technology involved in lubrication by nanoparticles is a rapidly developing scientific area and one that has been watched with interest for the past ten years. Nanolubrication offers a solution to many problems associated with traditional lubricants that contain sulphur and phosphorus; and though for some time the production of nanoparticles was restricted by the technologies available, today synthesis methods have been improved to such a level that it is possible to produce large quantities relatively cheaply and efficiently. Nanolubricants develops a new concept of lubrication, based on these nanoparticles, and along with the authors’ own research it synthesises the information available on the topic of nanolubrication from existing literature and presents it in a concise form. • Describes the many advantages and potential applications of nanotechnology in the tribological field. • Offers a full review of the state-of-the-art as well as much original research that is yet unpublished. • Includes sections on boundary lubrication by colloïdal systems, nanolubricants made of metal dichalcogenides, carbon-based nanolubricants, overbased detergent salts, nanolubricants made of metals and boron-based solid nanolubricants and lubrication additives. • Authored by highly regarded experts in the field with contributions from leading international academics. Nanolubricants will appeal to postgraduate students, academics and researchers in mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and materials science. It should also be of interest to practising engineers with petroleum companies and mechanical manufacturers. Contents Preface.
