Since its publication in 1995, the German Technical Dictionary has established itself as the definitive resource for anyone who needs to translate technical documents between German and English. This new edition has been substantially revised to reflect the technological environment of the twenty-first century. The revised edition contains over 75,000 entries, of which over 5,000 are new, with many new entries in the areas of: * the Internet and telecommunications * bio-technology and the new genetics * new developments in health technology. Throughout, this dictionary continues to benefit from the features that made the first edition so valuable, including accurate translations in British and American English and an attractive, durable and easy to use layout.
This dictionary is based on the 1st edition of Routledge-Langenscheidt’s technical dictionary Technik, Deutsch-Englisch, which appeared in 1996. The continuing dynamic development of technical terminology made a thorough revision of the work essential. This has meant a substantial expansion and modernization of the terms it contained. The existing lexical material in the individual technical fields was checked for accuracy, correctness and completeness, and over 5,000 current terms from 32 specialized areas have been added. The fields of telecommunications, new media/Internet, electrical engineering and electronics were greatly expanded, while obsolete terms were weeded out. The resulting dictionary covers all fields of modern technology and the science that underlies them. In addition to a broad base of technical expressions from such traditional fields as engineering, construction, electrical engineering and electronics, this dictionary also contains vocabulary from new and topical fields such as security technology and mobile telephony. The individual areas are represented in proportion to their frequency of application, so that an established and extensive field like engineering has some 8,000 headwords, whereas a field in which the vocabulary is still undergoing rapid development, such as non-fossil sources of energy, is represented by about 800 headwords. Care has been taken to include the basic technical vocabulary in its entirety, even though some entries may be found in general dictionaries as well. Although alternative translations would have been possible in certain specialized areas, we have always included the term most commonly used in specialist circles. The new material was processed by leading experts in the most important specialized areas. In view of his many years of lexicographical experience as editor of various technical dictionaries, Mr. Karl-Heinz Radde provided the expertise necessary to coordinate the work of revision. This dictionary is thus mainly intended as an up-to-the-minute reference work for students of all universities, technical colleges and advanced training institutions with a technical slant, for professional translators and interpreters, technical journalists, lawyers, businesspeople and all other specialists who need a reliable and practical guide to terminology. The Publishers crave the indulgence of users of this dictionary for any errors that may remain, and welcome any useful comments or constructive criticism which might help to improve the work.

A detailed description of the methods most often used in practice. The authors are experts in their fields and cover such advanced techniques as direct and large-eddy simulation of turbulence, multigrid methods, parallel computing, moving grids, structured, block-structured and unstructured boundary-fitted grids, and free surface flows. The book shows common roots and basic principles for many apparently different methods, while also containing a great deal of practical advice for code developers and users. All the computer codes can be accessed from the Springer server on the internet. Designed to be equally useful for beginners and experts.

Das Buch bietet einen Überblick über die numerischen Methoden zur Lösung strömungsmechanischer Probleme. Die in der Praxis meistgenutzten Methoden werden detailliert beschrieben. Behandelt werden auch fortgeschrittene Methoden, wie die Simulation von Turbulenzen und Parallel-Verarbeitung. Das Buch beschreibt die Grundlagen und Prinzipien der verschiedenen Methoden. Numerische Genauigkeit und Abschätzung sowie Fehlerreduktion werden detailliert mit vielen Beispielen behandelt. Alle Computercodes sind über den Server ftp.springer.de des Springer-Verlages erhältlich (Internet).
This textbook explores both the theoretical foundation of the Finite Volume Method (FVM) and its applications in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Readers will discover a thorough explanation of the FVM numerics and algorithms used for the simulation of incompressible and compressible fluid flows, along with a detailed examination of the components needed for the development of a collocated unstructured pressure-based CFD solver. Two particular CFD codes are explored. The first is uFVM, a three-dimensional unstructured pressure-based finite volume academic CFD code, implemented within Matlab. The second is OpenFOAM®, an open source framework used in the development of a range of CFD programs for the simulation of industrial scale flow problems. With over 220 figures, numerous examples and more than one hundred exercise on FVM numerics, programming, and applications, this textbook is suitable for use in an introductory course on the FVM, in an advanced course on numerics, and as a reference for CFD programmers and researchers.

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
A new edition of the almost legendary textbook by Schlichting completely revised by Klaus Gersten is now available. This book presents a comprehensive overview of boundary-layer theory and its application to all areas of fluid mechanics, with emphasis on the flow past bodies (e.g. aircraft aerodynamics). It contains the latest knowledge of the subject based on a thorough review of the literature over the past 15 years. Yet again, it will be an indispensable source of inexhaustible information for students of fluid mechanics and engineers alike.
Finite element methods have become ever more important to engineers as tools for design and optimization, now even for solving non-linear technological problems. However, several aspects must be considered for finite-element simulations which are specific for non-linear problems: These problems require the knowledge and the understanding of theoretical foundations and their finite-element discretization as well as algorithms for solving the non-linear equations. This book provides the reader with the required knowledge covering the complete field of finite element analyses in solid mechanics. It is written for advanced students in engineering fields but serves also as an introduction into non-linear simulation for the practising engineer.

Fluid mechanics embraces engineering, science, and medicine. This book’s logical organization begins with an introductory chapter summarizing the history of fluid mechanics and then moves on to the essential mathematics and physics needed to understand and work in fluid mechanics. Analytical treatments are based on the Navier-Stokes equations. The book also fully addresses the numerical and experimental methods applied to flows. This text is specifically written to meet the needs of students in engineering and science. Overall, readers get a sound introduction to fluid mechanics.
