Applied mathematical modeling. Ed. by Eetu N. Virtanen. Nova Science Publishers 2008 349 pages $129.00 Hardcover TA342 The edges that once defined this discipline are quickly melting away as researchers from virtually every discipline find ways to build concise, useful and, hopefully, relatively simple models. The 11 papers here reflect that diversity, covering such topics as fluid turbulence, heated round jets in coldflowing ambient, the optimization of chemical processes, subcooling boiling flows, a secondorder scheme of precise timestep integration for dynamic analysis featuring longterm integration and transient responses, exact theories of rectangular beams based on linear elasticity, a queuing model with a second optional service and with a Bernoulli vacation schedule, a discrete particle simulation of particulate systems, threedimensional and turbulent convective heat transfer in a heat exchanger with circular pin fins, six turbulence models for prediction of a singlephase flow in a vessel stirred by a grid disc impeller, and algorithms for a nonlinear dynamic rational model identification and validation. References are provided and generally uptodate. ([c]20082005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
