Mechanics and Mathematics of Fluids of the Differential Type (Hardcover) (Doina Cioranescu)
about this item
This text is the first of its kind to bring together both the thermomechanics and mathematical analysis of Reiner-Rivlin fluids and fluids of grades 2 and 3 in a single book. Each part of the book can be considered as being self-contained. The first part of the book is devoted to a description of the mechanics, thermodynamics and the stability of flows of fluids of grade 2 and grade 3. The second part of the book is concerned with the development of rigorous mathematical results concerning the equations governing the motion of a family of fluids of the differential type. Finally, the proofs of a number of useful results are collected in an appendix.
