Control volume finite element methods (CVFEM) bridge the gap between finite difference and finite element methods, using the advantages of both methods for simulation of multi-physics problems in complex geometries. In Hydrothermal Analysis in Engineering Using Control Volume Finite Element Method, CVFEM is covered in detail and applied to key areas of thermal engineering. Examples, exercises, and extensive references are used to show the use of the technique to model key engineering problems such as heat transfer in nanofluids (to enhance performance and compactness of energy systems), hydro-magnetic techniques in materials and bioengineering, and convective flow in fluid-saturated porous media. The topics are of practical interest to engineering, geothermal science, and medical and biomedical sciences. Introduces a detailed explanation of Control Volume Finite Element Method (CVFEM) to provide for a complete understanding of the fundamentals Demonstrates applications of this method in various fields, such as nanofluid flow and heat transfer, MHD, FHD, and porous media Offers complete familiarity with the governing equations in which nanofluid is used as a working fluid Discusses the governing equations of MHD and FHD Provides a number of extensive examples throughout the book Bonus appendix with sample computer code

Differential Transformation Method for Mechanical Engineering Problems focuses on applying DTM to a range of mechanical engineering applications. The authors modify traditional DTM to produce two additional methods, multi-step differential transformation method (Ms-DTM) and the hybrid differential transformation method and finite difference method (Hybrid DTM-FDM). It is then demonstrated how these can be a suitable series solution for engineering and physical problems, such as the motion of a spherical particle, nanofluid flow and heat transfer, and micropolar fluid flow and heat transfer. Presents the differential transformation method and why it holds an advantage over higher-order Taylor series methods Includes a full mathematical introduction to DTM, Ms-DTM, and Hybrid DTM Covers the use of these methods for solving a range of problems in areas such as nanofluid flow, heat transfer, and motion of a spherical particle in different conditions Provides numerous examples and exercises which will help the reader fully grasp the practical applications of these new methods

This book deals with certain aspects of material science, particularly with the release of thermal energy associated with bond breaking. It clearly establishes the connection between heat transfer rates and product quality. The editors then sharply draw the thermal distinctions between the various categories of welding processes, and demonstrate how these distinctions are translated into simulation model uniqueness. The book discusses the incorporation of radiative heat transfer processes into the simulation model.

Written as both a textbook and a handy reference, this text deliberately avoids complex mathematics assuming only basic familiarity with geodynamic theory and calculus. Here, the authors have brought together the key numerical techniques for geodynamic modeling, demonstrations of how to solve problems including lithospheric deformation, mantle convection and the geodynamo. Building from a discussion of the fundamental principles of mathematical and numerical modeling, the text moves into critical examinations of each of the different techniques before concluding with a detailed analysis of specific geodynamic applications. Key differences between methods and their respective limitations are also discussed - showing readers when and how to apply a particular method in order to produce the most accurate results. This is an essential text for advanced courses on numerical and computational modeling in geodynamics and geophysics, and an invaluable resource for researchers looking to master cutting-edge techniques.
