CFD Collection: Turbulence Models is the first volume of the CFD Collection, a series of 12 Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) courses for Aeronautics, Aerospace, Mechanics, Physics, Mathematics and also for some researchers that want to have a quick reference easy to access.
The high level and professionalism of the contents of this course make from it an important tool for students and researchers. The interactive Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the multi-page reader are the most important feature of these books.
The CFD Collection is created for Desktop Computer and Pocket PC. For Desktop Computer the book has a very interactive GUI, similar with Windows widgets. With this software the readers have the possibility to open 100 panels in the same time, FEATURE THAT YOU CANNOT FIND ON ACROBAT READER OR INTERNET BROWSER. They can maximize, minimize the panel or close it like in Windows. Each panel has buttons or lists with the book pages. There are two modality to access the contents of the book : - by following the buttons of the panels or - by double clicking of the contents items.
FOR THE FIRST TIME, A SCIENTIFIC BOOK, ON POCKET PC is now available with this book. You can access the 508 pages or the content items, maximize them and scroll for a maximum visibility on your Pocket PC. Take the book with you everywhere !
The book is full of formulae and has a large reference list. 49 turbulence models, created by 250 authors, professors and researchers connected with the turbulence research are presented in it. This work is a compilation of the most recently researches into the turbulence modeling field. The book tries to quote many authors to preserve the original interpretation of the model. This collection was created by a large contribution of some external collaborators (professors and researchers). This book tries to expose the original models and the modifications that was given to them during the time. The modern presentation using panels and buttons gives to the student an easier way to see many models in the same time, to compare them and to see what differences exist between The student can follow what the author of each model thought about the physical and theoretical implications during the model creation. All the presentation is based on some governing equations of the CFD and models with zero, one, two equations, LES, POD, RNG, Fourier Transform, incompressible and compressible flows. We tried to bring together many models, most used in the last years and to quote many authors of them. The POD was given as an informative reference and will be developed into a future version. The references used in this course was presented at the end of the book. Easier to understand, to read and learn, this book for Desktop Computer and Pocket PC will help the students or the researchers to quickly access the information that they want from this domain. The book has a Bonus CD with many links through commercial CFD software.
In DVD format, with CD inside, the book can be installed on computer with Windows 98,2000, Xp, Me or on Pocket PC 2003, 2002, Windows CE. NET, Palm - size 2.11, 2.01, HandHeld PC 2000, Pro, PC with platform i686, MIPS 4000, SH3 1003, ARM 2577, WCE400
