Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics

Thermodynamics is a perfect example of a science which is developed from axioms. In contrast to classical mechanics, thermodynamics has withstood the quantum revolution without having its foundations shaken. In the course of the century of its existence it sprouted only several vigorous offshoots: Nernst's Third Law, Section 12, the theory of dilute solutions, Section 15, the application of the Second Law to electricity and magnetism, Sections 18 and .19. We consider that the thermodynamics of irreversible processes, Section 21, constitutes a promising extension of the classical thermodynamics of equilibria; it is based on Onsager's reciprocal relations and attempts to describe real processes which occur at finite velocities. Even Kirchhoff, as related by Planck in his autobiographical paper (Naturwissen- schaften 19), restricted the concept of entropy to reversible processes; the firm belief in the general validity of this concept, which Planck stated as early as his doctoral thesis, led him in 1900 to his law of radiation and to quantum theory.

This classic text, first published in 1972, is designed for graduate physics courses in statistical mechanics. The second edition, published in 1996, incorporated three comprehensive chapters on phase transitions and critical phenomena.

This third edition includes new sections on Bose-Einstein condensation and degenerate Fermi behavior of ultracold atomic gases, and two new chapters on computer simulation methods and the thermodynamics of the early universe. We have also added new sections on chemical and phase equilibrium, and expanded our discussions of correlations and scattering, quantized fields, finite-size effects and the fluctuation-dissipation theorem. We hope this new edition will continue to provide new generations of students with a solid training in the methods of statistical physics.

-Bose-Einstein condensation in atomic gases -Thermodynamics of the early universe -Computer simulations: Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics -Correlation functions and scattering -Fluctuation-dissipation theorem and the dynamical structure factor -Chemical equilibrium -Exact solution of the two-dimensional Ising model for finite systems -Degenerate atomic Fermi gases -Exact solutions of one-dimensional fluid models -Interactions in ultracold Bose and Fermi gases -Brownian motion of anisotropic particles and harmonic oscillators

Tamanho do arquivo: 11,6 MB

Inelastic Analysis of Solids and Structures presents in a unified manner the physical and theoretical background of inelastic material models and computational methods, and illustrates the behavior of the models in typical engineering conditions. It is based on experimental observations and principles of mechanics, thus describing computational algorithms for stress calculation and presenting solved examples. The theoretical background is given to an extent necessary to describe the commonly employed material models in metal isotropic and orthotropic plasticity, thermoplasticity and viscoplasticity, and the plasticity of geological materials . The computational algorithms are developed in a unified manner with some detailed derivations of the algorithmic relations . The solved examples are designed to give insight into the material behavior in various engineering conditions, and to demonstrate the application of the computational algorithms.

As most modern technologies are no longer discipline-specific but involve multidisciplinary approaches, undergraduate engineering students should be introduced to the principles of mechanics so that they have a strong background in the basic principles common to all disciplines and are able to work at the interface of science and engineering disciplines. This textbook is designed for a first course on principles of mechanics and provides an introduction to the basic concepts of stress and strain and conservation principles. It prepares engineer-scientists for advanced courses in traditional as well as emerging fields such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, energy systems, and computational mechanics. This simple book presents the subjects of mechanics of materials, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer in a unified form using the conservation principles of mechanics.

Control Engineering - An introduction with the use of Matlab

Autor: Derek Atherton
Editora: Ventus Publishing ApS
Idioma: Inglês
Ano: 2009
Número de páginas:155
Tamanho do arquivo: 1.83 MB

The book covers the basic aspects of linear single loop feedback control theory. Explanations of the mathematical concepts used in classical control such as root loci, frequency response and stability methods are explained by making use of MATLAB plots but omitting the detailed mathematics found in many textbooks. There is a chapter on PID control and two chapters provide brief coverage of state variable methods. The approach adopted allows more time to be devoted to controller design by different methods, to compare the results and also to examine the effects of plant parameter variations.
