Item description for Molecular And Particle Modelling Of Laminar And Turbulent Flows by Donald Greenspan...
Turbulence is the most fundamental and, simultaneously, the most complex form of fluid flow. However, because an understanding of turbulence requires an understanding of laminar flow, both are explored in this book. Groundwork is laid by careful delineation of the necessary physical, mathematical, and numerical requirements for the studies which follow, and include discussions of N-body problems, classical molecular mechanics, dynamical equations, and the leap frog formulas for very large systems of second order ordinary differential equations. Molecular systems are studied first in both two and three dimensions. Extension into the large is also of great interest, and it is for this purpose that we develop particle mechanics, which uses lump massing of molecules. All calculations are limited to a personal scientific computer, so that the methods can be utilized readily by others.
