The book provides the reader with the necessary background and current trends in the theoretical and experimental aspects of compressible turbulent flows and compressible turbulence. Detailed derivations of the pertinent equations describing the motion of such turbulent flows is provided and an extensive discussion of the various approaches used in predicting both free shear and wall bounded flows is presented. Experimental measurement techniques common to the compressible flow regime are introduced with particular emphasis on the unique challenges presented by high speed flows. Both experimental and numerical simulation work is supplied throughout to provide the reader with an overall perspective of current trends.An introduction to current techniques in compressible turbulent flow analysisAn approach that enables engineers to identify and solve complex compressible flow challengesPrediction methodologies, including the Reynolds-averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) method, scale filtered methods and direct numerical simulation (DNS)Current strategies focusing on compressible flow control

The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precision knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.The formation of crystals (or nucleation) is studied in its theoretical and practical detailsThe author also provides methods needed for understanding the equipment used in applied thermodynamicsThe chapters are complemented with appendices which provide additional information as well as any associated references
Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precise knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.In this volume, the author focuses the heat exchanges between gases, liquids, divided solids and compact solids without changes of phase.This book includes discussion on changes of phase, heat exchange processes, combustion and the necessary equipment to measure these.The chapters are complemented with appendices which provide additional information as well as any associated references.
