This book cover the basics of aeroelasticity or the dynamics of fluid-structure interaction. While the field began in response to the rapid development of aviation, it has now expanded into many branches of engineering and scientific disciplines and treat physical phenomena from aerospace engineering, bioengineering, civil engineering, and mechanical engineering in addition to drawing the attention of mathematicians and physicists. The basic questions addressed are dynamic stability and response of fluid structural systems as revealed by both linear and nonlinear mathematical models and correlation with experiment. The use of scaled models and full scale experiments and tests play a key role where theory is not considered sufficiently reliable. In this new edition the more recent literature on nonlinear aeroelasticity has been brought up to date and the opportunity has been taken to correct the inevitable typographical errors that the authors and our readers have found to date. The early chapters of this book may be used for a first course in aeroelasticity taught at the senior undergraduate or early graduate level and the later chapters may serve as the basis for a more advanced course, a graduate research seminar or as reference to provide an entree to the current research literature.

This volume presents an introduction to the three numerical methods most commonly used in the mechanical analysis of deformable solids, viz. the finite element method (FEM), the linear iteration method (LIM), and the finite difference method (FDM). The book has been written from the point of view of simplicity and unity; its originality lies in the comparable emphasis given to the spatial, temporal and nonlinear dimensions of problem solving. This leads to a neat global algorithm. Audience: Graduate students and researchers whose work involves the theory and application of computational solid mechanics.

Modern fracture mechanics considers phenomena at many levels, macro and micro; it is therefore inextricably linked to methods of theoretical and mathematical physics. This book introduces these sophisticated methods in a straightforward manner. The methods are applied to several important phenomena of solid state physics which impinge on fracture mechanics: adhesion, defect nucleation and growth, dislocation emission, sintering, the electron beam effect and fractal cracks. The book shows how the mathematical models for such processes may be set up, and how the equations so formulated may be solved and interpreted. The many open problems which are encountered will provide topics for MSc and PhD theses in fracture mechanics, and in theoretical and experimental physics. As a supplementary text, the book can be used in graduate level courses on fracture mechanics, solid matter physics, and mechanics of solids, or in a special course on the application of fracture mechanics methods in solid matter physics.

Turbulence - the chaotic behaviour of fluid flows - has attracted the interest of many scientists for many decades, and the number is still growing. Turbulence is one of the most challenging classical problems that still require solution. But it is not only a scientific problem: the control of turbulence and turbulent transport are the key to many engineering problems. The Euromech Committee has organised a European Turbulence Conference every two years, starting in 1986, with the 5th Conference in the series taking place in Sienna, Italy, in July 1994. The work presented at this meeting is published in Advances in Turbulence V, providing a complete overview of the most recent research work on the subject.

Advances in Turbulence VI presents an update on the state of turbulence research with some bias towards research in Europe, since it represents an almost complete collection of the paper presentations at the Sixth European Turbulence Conference, sponsored by EUROMECH, ERCOFTAC and COST, and held at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, July 2-5, 1996. The problem of transition, together with the structural description of turbulence, and the scaling laws of fully developed turbulence have continued to receive most attention by the research community and much progress has been made since the last European Turbulence Conference in 1994. The volume is thus geared towards specialists in the area of flow turbulence who could not attend the conference, as well as anybody who wishes quickly to assess the most active current research areas and the groups associated with them.

Waves in liquid/gas and liquid/vapour two-phase systems have various wave modes, curious propagation characteristics and peculiar mechanisms for destabilizing and stabilizing, due to the composite structure of two-phase systems, the accumulated effects of the local and instantaneous interactions between the phases, and the phase transitions. Knowledge of such waves is important, to understand the fundamental properties of two-phase systems and to prove the validity of models. This book discusses recent results on possible wave modes, their structure and propagation characteristics, and mechanisms for destabilizing and stabilizing in liquid/gas and liquid/vapour two-phase systems.

Progress in fluid mechanics depends heavily on the availability of good experimental data which can inspire new ideas and concepts but which are also necessary to check and validate theories and numerical calculations. With the advent of new recording and image analysis techniques new and promising experimental methods in fluid flows have presented themselves which are rather newly developed techniques such as particle tracking velocimetry (PTV), particle image velocimetry (PIV) and laser fluorescene (LIF). This volume presents state-of-the-art research on these techniques and their application to fluid flow. Selected papers from the EUROMECH conference on Image Analysis are published in this volume.

This book is a state of the art presentation of theories and methods related to the problem of the behaviour of mechanical structures under variable loads beyond their elastic limit. In particular, the problems of shakedown, ratchetting, transient and asymptotic cyclic states are addressed. Four chapters, each composed of individual articles, treat the material modelling for cyclic loading conditions, general theories of accommodated states of structures, effects of changes of the geometry on the inelastic structural response and numerical techniques with applications to particular engineering problems. The volume is of interest to all mechanical and civil engineers involved in design of mechanical elements and structures exposed to variable mechanical and thermal loads and which may suffer inelastic deformations during their lifetime.
