About this title


Despite the fact that fluid dynamics and filtration through porous media and mathematics, there are classical research areas in engineering, physics, are still many industrial processes that require the study of new mathemat­ ical models for flows of particular complexity, due to the peculiar properties of the systems involved. The aim of this book is to provide a number of examples showing how frequently such situations arise in various branches of industrial technology. The selection of the subjects was motivated not only by their industrial rel­ evance and mathematical interest. What I had in mind was a collection of problems having a really distinctive character, thus bringing some fresh air into one of the oldest and most revered domains of applied mathematics. The incredible richness of nonstandard flow problems in industrial appli­ cations has always been, and still is, a constant surprise to me. Therefore I tried to offer a very large spectrum of subjects, with special attention devoted to those problems in which the modeling phase is far from being obvious, and the mathematical content is absolutely nontrivial. With such a view to diversity, topics have been selected from a variety of sources (such as glass industry, polymers science, coffee brewing, fuels pipelining), and contributors from different backgrounds (mathematics, physics, chemical engineering) have been included. Consequently, the mathematical nature of the problems formulated spans over a large range, so that their theoret­ ical investigation and numerical computation require a variety of different techniques.

From the Back Cover:

For fluid dynamics and problems, there are many related industrial processes that require the study and application of new models for complex flow conditions and systems. The goals of this new edited book is to present a variety of industrial application and models that address current work and results for some of these problems.

The book contains state-of-the-art surveys for select models and applications that offer the most illustrative  use of new model analysis and application. The chapters are organized into three broad categories: flows of nonlinear materials, flow accompanied by thermal processes, and nonlinear flows in porous media.

Topics and Features:

* Polymer problems in extrusion

* Modeling of glass problems

* Pipelining of gases and slurries

* Polymerization process

* Thermally induced flows in polymers

* Composite materials in manufacturing

* Flows through active porous media

The book is an essential resource and reference for the analysis and modeling of problems in fluid dynamics and filtration. All researchers, practitioners, and professionals in fluid dynamics, chemical process engineering, materials engineering, and applied math will find the book a useful presentation of current methods and applications.
