Handbook of Elementary Rheology

The ebook is acceptable as a primary advent to the topic of Rheology for any scholar of technology or engineering. even if, having labored in for thirty years, i'm additionally attempting to meet the desires of my commercial colleagues who -often with none prior education within the topic of rheology - locate themselves having to paintings at the formula and processing of non-Newtonian drinks.

Newton's Principia for the Common Reader (Physics) (Psychology)

This paintings, even though past my competence in arithmetic, is designed for "the universal reader. " With just--a desideratum I lack--calculus and geometry, Chandra demonstrates definite basic scholia of Newton's treatise. yet he does greater than this. He indicates us what Descartes suspected--that the classical geometers and Newton, in a fashion, new an analogous issues.

Molecular hydrodynamics

This graduate-level creation to the speculation and functions of time correlation capabilities and the molecular concept of fluid dynamics presents experimentalists with the theoretical instruments worthy for research of experimental effects, and theoreticians a finished resource of illustrations of theories so much proper in functional functions.
