Topographic Effects in Stratified Flows
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungWith an emphasis on both theory and experiment, this text describes the behavior of homogeneous and density-stratified fluids over and around topography. The topics include the flow of a homogeneous layer with a free surface--the prototype for conventional hydraulics--the corresponding phenomena in two-layer flows, and a description of the properties of linear waves in stratified fluids in motion. The author applies the aforementioned properties to laboratory and numerical modeling of flow through real complex terrain.

Pressestimmen'... this book represents a remarkable synthesis of a large body of work into a very readable and understandable form wtih ample references to the original research papers ... An excellent book ... it would be a very useful addition to the library of anyone working in wave theory or interested in the effects of topography on a fluid in areas ranging from oceanography to climate modelling.' Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society 'There is no comparable book ... it is a worthy addition to the series of Cambridge Monographs on Mechanics, which will be of lasting usefulness for research workers on airflow over mountains and on currents over sea mounts.' P. G. Drazin, Journal of Fluid Mechanics ' ... seems destined to be a major reference for any worker interested in fluid flow over topography.' Richard Kerswell, Mathematics Today '... this book represents a remarkable synthesis of a large body of work into a very readable and understandable form with ample reference to the orginal research papers ... an excellent book and is well produced by Cambridge University Press. It would be a very useful addition to the library of anyone working in wave theory or interested in the effects of topography on a fluid in areas ranging from oceanography to climate modelling.' N. F. Smyth, Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society 'Professor Baines deserves praise for his well-informed overview of an important and active field.' A. D. D. Craik, The Mathematical Gazette ' ... highly valuable ... it will surely find its place on the bookshelf of many students, scientists, practitioners and academic teachers ...' H. Baumert, ZAMM 7S
