An Introduction to Graphene and Carbon Nanotubes by John E. Proctor,Daniel Melendrez Armada,Aravind

By John E. Proctor,Daniel Melendrez Armada,Aravind Vijayaraghavan

Carbon nanotubes and graphene were the topic of severe clinical study because their particularly fresh discoveries. This booklet introduces the reader to the technological know-how in the back of those speedily constructing fields, and covers either the basics and most up-to-date advances. Uniquely, this ebook covers the themes in a pedagogical demeanour compatible for undergraduate scholars. The ebook additionally makes use of the straightforward structures of nanotubes and graphene as types to educate options reminiscent of molecular orbital idea, tight binding idea and the Laue therapy of diffraction.

Suitable for undergraduate scholars with a operating wisdom of uncomplicated quantum mechanics, and for postgraduate researchers starting their experiences into the sector, this ebook will equip the reader to severely overview the actual houses and strength for functions of graphene and carbon nanotubes.

Finite Element Analysis for Composite Structures (Solid by L.T. Tenek,John Argyris

By L.T. Tenek,John Argyris

This publication is an event into the pc research of 3 dimensional composite constructions utilizing the finite point technique (FEM). it's designed for Universities, for complex undergraduates, for graduates, for researchers, and for working towards engineers in undefined. The textual content advances progressively from the research of easy beams to arbitrary anisotropic and composite plates and shells; it treats either linear and nonlinear habit. as soon as the elemental philosophy of the tactic is known, the reader could extend its software and alter the pc courses to fit specific wishes. The booklet arose from 4 years learn on the college of Stuttgart, Germany. We current the idea and laptop courses concisely and systematically for you to be used either for educating and functions. we've got attempted to make the ebook basic and transparent, and to teach the underlying actual and mathematical rules. The FEM has been in lifestyles for greater than 50 years. one of many authors, John Argyris, invented this system in international struggle II during the cost at the research of the swept again wing of the dual engined Meteor Jet Fighter. during this paintings, he additionally always utilized matrix calculus and brought triangular membrane components together with new definitions of triangular stresses and traces that are referred to now because the part and overall measures. in reality, he used to be chargeable for the unique formula of the matrix strength and displacement equipment, the forerunners of the FEM.

Physics of Wetting: Phenomena and Applications of Fluids on by Edward Yu. Bormashenko

By Edward Yu. Bormashenko

Motivated by way of a plethora of phenomena from nature, this textbook introduces into the physics of wetting of surfaces. After a short dialogue of the rules of floor stress, its exploitation for floating gadgets on or in beverages is mentioned. in addition, droplets and capillary results are mentioned and after a short day trip into cavitation, the fundamentals of dirt-repellent surfaces (lotus influence) are introduced.

Simulations of Oscillatory Systems: with Award-Winning by Eugene I. Butikov

By Eugene I. Butikov

Deepen Your scholars’ knowing of Oscillations via Interactive Experiments

Simulations of Oscillatory platforms: with Award-Winning software program, Physics of Oscillations provides a hands-on means of visualizing and knowing the basic thoughts of the physics of oscillations. either the textbook and software program are designed as exploration-oriented supplementations for classes more often than not physics and the speculation of oscillations.

The publication is with ease established in line with mathematical complexity. each one bankruptcy partially I comprises actions, questions, routines, and difficulties of various degrees of trouble, from undemanding to particularly hard. half II offers extra subtle, hugely mathematical fabric that delves into the intense theoretical heritage for the computer-aided research of oscillations.

The software program package deal permits scholars to watch the movement of linear and nonlinear mechanical oscillatory structures and to procure plots of the variables that describe the structures besides section diagrams and plots of power variations. those desktop simulations supply transparent, brilliant illustrations of oscillations in a number of actual structures, bringing to existence many summary recommendations, constructing scholars’ actual instinct, and complementing the analytical examine of the topic. scholars can examine phenomena that may rather be tough to review in a extra traditional manner.
