Download Principles of Heat Transfer in Porous Media by M. Kaviany (auth.) PDF

By M. Kaviany (auth.)

Even though the empirical therapy of fluid circulation and warmth move in porous media is over a century outdated, basically within the final 3 a long time has the shipping in those heterogeneous platforms been addressed intimately. up to now, single-phase flows in porous media were taken care of or no less than formulated satisfactorily, whereas the topic of two-phase move and the similar heat-transfer in porous media remains to be in its infancy. This publication identifies the foundations of delivery in porous media and compares the avalaible predictions in response to theoretical remedies of assorted delivery mechanisms with the present experimental effects. The theoretical remedy is predicated at the volume-averaging of the momentum and effort equations with the closure stipulations useful for acquiring recommendations. whereas emphasizing a simple realizing of warmth move in porous media, this e-book doesn't forget about the necessity for predictive instruments; every time a rigorous theoretical therapy of a phenomena isn't really avaliable, semi-empirical and empirical remedies are given.

Download Coastal disasters and climate change in Vietnam : by Nguyen Danh Thao, Hiroshi Takagi, Miguel Esteban PDF

By Nguyen Danh Thao, Hiroshi Takagi, Miguel Esteban

Coastal failures and weather swap in Vietnam is the 1st ebook to concentration particularly on typical risks and weather swap in Vietnam. The publication examines threats similar to tropical cyclones, sea-level upward thrust, flooding, erosion, and salinity intrusion, and their respective results on coastal constructions and environments. It additionally seems at an important administration and mitigation efforts, together with breakwater layout, irrigation structures, coastal dunes and dikes, and more.

The demanding situations confronted by way of this kingdom sooner or later may have very important nearby and international repercussions; components reminiscent of the Mekong Delta produce an important share of the world’s rice, and coastal affects in this quarter could have far-reaching fiscal and public healthiness results. This publication is a crucial resource of data for presidency and native coverage makers, environmental and weather scientists, and engineers.

  • Broad insurance of weather demanding situations particular to the sector, together with sea-level upward push, storms, erosion, and more
  • Assessments of impression on, and results of, monetary improvement and port construction
