The book presents the state of the art in the interdisciplinary field of fluid mechanics applied to cardiovascular modelling. It is neither a monograph nor a collection of research papers, rather an extended review in the field.
The catastrophic earthquakes of the last decades have seriously undermined there putation of steel structures, which in the past represented the most suitable solution for seismic resistant structures. Even if in very few cases, the performance of steel joints and members was unexpectedly bad, showing that it was due to some lacks in the current design concep
It presents up-to-date information on the latest developments – research results and experience – in the field of machining of conventional and advanced materials, machine tools and flexible manufacturing systems, forming, nonconventional processes, robotics, measurement and control, quality, design and ecodesign, rapid prototyping, rapid tooling and manufacturing, materials and mechanics.
This book presents a broad overview of the issues related to the flow of particles in suspensions. Chapters cover the newest research in advanced theoretical approaches and recent experimental techniques. Topics include macroscopic transport properties, the mechanics of capsules and cells, hydrodynamic diffusion and phase separation.
