Book Description

9 Dec 2004 008044508X 978-0080445083
Each year, universities and research centres most particularly the major space agencies such as NASA, ESA, and NASDA devote a vast amount of time and money into the research of materials behaviour and production in microgravity. Recently, the possibility of creating special alloys, inorganic and organic crystals, as well as biological (living) tissues in this condition has been investigated. "Fluids, Materials and Microgravity" provides a solid basis of established knowledge through literature, fundamental studies, experimental methods, numerical (basic and sophisticated) techniques as well as the latest in research advancements. Important for the prediction of material behaviour when exposed to the environment of space, this book explores the new knowledge provided by microgravity-based studies in producing unique inorganic, and organic materials on Earth (and in designing related new technological processes). A vital resource for any scientists interested in the understanding and modelling of the new important physical mechanisms disclosed by microgravity research, and in their possible effect on the production and behaviour of materials both in space and on Earth. A vital resource for any scientists interested in the effect of microgravity on the production and behaviour of materials, this book covers typical fluid-dynamic disturbances which can affect the behaviour and final quality of materials both in space and on Earth, and possible strategies to contain their effects. Thorough attention is devoted to the most promising and innovative technological processes provided by microgravity experimentation. Information is provided through application-based engineering models, as well as mathematical frameworks, to facilitate a deeper understanding of physical mechanisms.
