Continuum Electromechanics by James R. Melcher

By James R. Melcher

Designed for use as a graduate-level textual content and as an engineering reference paintings, Continuum Electromechanics provides a entire improvement of its subject—the interplay of electromagnetic forces and ponderable media, the mechanical responses to electromagnetic fields, and the reciprocal results of the fabric motions produced through these fields. The author’s method is very interdisciplinary, and he introduces primary innovations from such topics as electrohydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, plasma physics, electron beam engineering, fluid mechanics, warmth move, and actual chemistry. The purposes of continuum electromechanics also are remarkably diversified, and lots of of them are taken care of within the e-book, either as a result of their intrinsic engineering significance and as a way of illustrating easy rules. between those purposes are the layout of rotating machines and synchronous turbines, polymer processing, magnetic melting and pumping in metallurgical operations, the processing of plastics and glass, the manufacture of artificial fibers, inductive and dielectric heating, thermal-to-electrical power conversion, the keep watch over of pollution, the layout of controlled-fusion units, picture processing and printing, the magnetic levitation and propulsion of autos, the learn of flicks and membranes, and the research of the complicated electrokinetic and physicochemical methods that underlie the sensing and motor capabilities of organic platforms. lots of those functions are offered within the type of difficulties. The ebook contains 11 chapters, entitled advent to Continuum Electromechanics; Electrodynamic legislation; Approximations, and family members; Electromagnetic Forces, strength Densities, and rigidity Tensors; Electromechanical Kinematics; Energy-Conversion types and strategies; cost Migration, Convection, and rest; Magnetic Diffusion and Induction Interactions; legislation, Approximations, and kin of Fluid Mechanics Statics and Dynamics of structures Having a Static Equilibrium; Electromechanical Flows; Electromechanics with Thermal and Molecular Diffusion; and Streaming Interactions
