Mechanical and Thermodynamical Modeling of Fluid InterfaceseBook - 2001
This book constitutes a comprehensive survey of the balance equations for mass, momentum and energy for the interfaces in pure fluids and mixtures. Constitutive laws are presented for many situations in engineering science, and examples are provided, including surface viscosity effects, variable surface tension and vapor recoil. In addition, some extensions of existing theory are given: stretch effect in premixed flames, relaxation zones downstream two-phase shock waves, and effective surface tension for steep gradient zones. Contents: Thermodynamics and Kinematics of Interfaces; Interface Balance Laws; Constitutive Relations Deduced from Linear Irrevesible Thermodynamics for the Two-Dimensional Interfaces; Classical Three-Dimensional Constitutive Relations Deduced from Linear Irreversible Thermodynamics and Their Consequences for Interfaces; Second Gradient Theory Applied to Interfacial Medium; Typical Problems Involving Surface Tensions and Other Surface Properties. Readership: Graduates, physicists, applied mathematicians and engineers seeking classical knowledge in continuum mechanics and thermodynamics, especially in the thermodynamics of irreversible processes.
