By Scott V. Franklin, Mark D. Shattuck

Granular structures come up in various geological and commercial settings, from landslides, avalanches, and erosion to agricultural grains and pharmaceutical powders. realizing the underlying physics that governs their habit is the most important to constructing powerful dealing with and shipping mechanisms in addition to acceptable environmental policies.

Handbook of Granular Materials provides foundational strategies used to enquire granular structures, examples in their use in modern study, and extensions to granular-like structures that enormously extend the area of research. The ebook offers information on the best way to behavior study in granular fabrics and explores promising instructions for brand spanking new research.

The first numerous chapters disguise numerous tools utilized by modern researchers to enquire granular fabrics. next chapters delve into broader subject matters of research, targeting effects instead of technique. the ultimate chapters describe 3 prolonged structures of granular media: suspensions, emulsions and foams, and colloids.

Introductory Solid State Physics (Second Edition)

Assuming an trouble-free wisdom of quantum and statistical physics, this e-book presents a accomplished consultant to significant actual homes of condensed topic, in addition to the underlying thought valuable for a formal figuring out in their origins. the subject material covers the imperative gains of condensed topic physics, yet with specific accessory at the homes of steel alloys.

Theory of High Temperature Superconductivity: A Conventional Approach

Drawing from the extensive spectrum of phenomena, defined in additional than 100,000 articles on high-Tc superconductivity, during this ebook, the authors learn these simple homes for which knowing might be completed in the framework of conventional equipment of theoretical physics. this can be the case of the overdoped cuprates for which the "Bardeen software" has been discovered: we all know their digital spectrum, we will calculate their easy thermodynamic and electrodynamic houses, and are expecting new phenomena.

Nanotubes and Nanosheets: Functionalization and Applications of Boron Nitride and Other Nanomaterials

Nanotubes and nanosheets are low-dimensional nanomaterials with specific homes that may be exploited for varied functions. This e-book deals a whole evaluate in their constitution, homes, improvement, modeling methods, and functional use. It focuses recognition on boron nitride (BN) nanotubes, that have had significant curiosity given their unique high-temperature houses, in addition to graphene nanosheets, BN nanosheets, and steel oxide nanosheets.

Lumay and Vandewalle [31] extended this to still larger aspect ratios, and developed a 2D lattice model that reproduced the salient features of the compaction curves. A subsequent two-dimensional experiment highlighted the importance of rotation in rod rearrangements [32]. Pournin et al. [29,40] derived an analytic expression for detecting contact between spherocylinders (a spherocylinder is composed of a cylinder and two hemispherical endcaps), an integral component of efficient computation. A spherocylinder can be defined as the locus of points equidistant from a line segment, so the problem reduces to finding the shortest distance between two segments.
