Modeling and simulation in engineering sciences
This book features state-of-the-art contributions in mathematical, experimental and numerical \ud simulations in engineering sciences. The contributions in this book, which comprise twelve chapters, \ud are organized in six sections spanning mechanical, aerospace, electrical, electronic, computer, \ud materials, geotechnical and chemical engineering. Topics include metal micro-forming, compressible \ud reactive flows, radio frequency circuits, barrier infrared detectors, fiber Bragg and long-period fiber \ud gratings, semiconductor modelling, many-core architecture computers, laser processing of materials, \ud alloy phase decomposition, nanofluids, geo-materials and rheo-kinetics. Contributors are from \ud Europe, China, Mexico, Malaysia and Iran. The chapters feature many sophisticated approaches \ud including Monte Carlo simulation, FLUENT and ABAQUS computational modelling, discrete element \ud modelling and partitioned frequency-time methods. The book will be of interest to researchers and \ud also consultants engaged in many areas of engineering simulation.
