Rheology Books

  • Low Temperature Lubricant Rheology Measurement and Relevance to Engine Operation

    9 peer-reviewed papers by key contributors: • offer a chronology of developments regarding the low-temperature rheological techniques and specifications that apply to the low-temperature cranking and pumping characteristics of engine oils; • focus on the technological changes that have occurred since the completion of the last round of ...

  • Physics and Chemistry of Partially Molten Rocks

    Partial melting occurs in a variety of geological environments, from granitic partial melts in the continental crust, to basaltic or carbonate partial melts in the upper mantle. Partial melting is the first stage of magmatism and therefore plays a role of primary importance in the chemical differentiation of the Earth and in the transport of ...

  • Mechanics, Structure and Evolution of Fault Zones

    Considerable progress has been made recently in quantifying geometrical and physicalproperties of fault surfaces and adjacent fractured and granulated damage zones inactive faulting environments. There has also been significant progress in developingrheologies and computational frameworks that can model the dynamics of fault zoneprocesses. This ...

  • Microdynamics Simulation

    Microstructures in rocks contain a wealth of information on the history of rock bodes, metamorphic and tectonic processes and the mechanical and rheological properties of the crust and mantle. The book deals with the numerical simulation of such microstructures in rocks. It starts with a general introduction of existing methods and techniques for ...

  • IUTAM Symposium on Physicochemical and Electromechanical, Interactions in Porous Media

    In the last decades, new experimental and numerical techniques have taken many advanced features of porous media mechanics down to practical engineering applications. This happened in areas that sometimes were not even suspected to be open to engineering ideas at all. The challenge that often faces engineers in the field of geomechanics, ...

  • Rheology of the Earth

    Beginning with basic principles, this advanced text gives a complete treatment of deformation and flow of earth materials from both the continuum mechanics and the microphysical viewpoints. It covers the role and consequences of rheological processes in geophysics and geodynamics in a quantitative and authoritative manner. The second ...

  • Drag Reduction of Turbulent Flows by Additives

    Drag Reduction of Turbulent Flows by Additives is the first treatment of the subject in book form. The treatment is extremely broad, ranging from physicochemical to hydromechanical aspects. The book shows how fibres, polymer molecules or surfactants at very dilute concentrations can reduce the drag of turbulent flow, leading to energy ...
