Title: F L OW, D E F O R M AT I O N A N D FR ACT UR E Lectures on Fluid Mechanics and the Mechanics of Deformable Solids for Mathematicians and Physicists
Authors: Barenblatt, G. I.
Keywords: Architecture
Issue Date: 2014
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Description: These unique features make it possible for this book to present, without long preliminaries, not only the basic features of the mechanics of continua but also more sophisticated topics in turbulence and fracture, fields to which Professor Barenblatt has contributed so much but where present understanding is still incomplete. In particular, the reader will surely appreciate the illuminating presentations of crack propagation and of the scaling of turbulent shear flow. I was privileged to work on this last topic with Professors Barenblatt and Prostokishin, and I feel very strongly that our straightforward scaling arguments satisfy all logical requirements and fit all the data (“all” means literally “all”) better than the older alternatives. The presentation here is detailed enough for the reader to form his or her own opinion.
