About this Textbook

The authors give an introduction into continuum thermomechanics, the methods of dimensional analysis and turbulence modeling. All these themes belong today to the everyday working method of not only environmental physicists but equally also those engineers, who are confronted with continuous systems of solid and fluid mechanics, soil mechanics and generally the mechanics and thermodynamics of heterogeneous systems. Here the reader finds a rigorous mathematical presentation of the material which is also seen as the foundation for environmentally related physics like oceanography, limnology, glaciology, climate dynamics and other topics in geophysics. Even though it is hoped that the book will also be used as a source book by researchers in the broad field of continuum physics, its intention is essentially to form a basis for teaching for upper level students majoring in mechanics, mathematics, physics and the classical engineering sciences. The intention is to equip the reader with the ability to understand the complex nonlinear modeling in material behaviour and turbulence closure as well as to derive or invent his own models.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book is about continuum mechanics, dimensional analysis, and turbulence. This is an extremely interesting program that the authors carry to a happy end … . It maintains a good balance between rigor and a good sense of applicability to real physical problems. … The whole discussion given by the authors in this book … is superb. … The book belongs on the shelf of all … . the quantity and richness of the fully solved exercises make the book an excellent instrument for self-teaching as well." (Gérard A. Maugin, Mathematical Reviews, 2005h)

"This book, which is divided into three parts, begins with the development of balance laws or conservation equations and ends with a sequence of chapters devoted to turbulence. … is intended for students in the engineering disciplines whose interests lie in fluid dynamics. … a unique feature of the book is the inclusion of solutions to exercises … . As a reference source for students, this may be quite useful … . Certainly a book with a both interesting and unique topical mixture." (T.B. Gatski, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Vol. 526, 2005)
