Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'Davidson's splendid book … is written in a spirited style which conveys his enthusiasm for the subject … an excellent book, which provides a refreshing introduction and a welcome addition to the MHD literature.' A. M. Soward, Journal of Fluid Mechanics

'Like other texts in the series, the typography is easy on the eyes and the price easy on the purse. All in all, a wonderful introduction to the subject and more!' Stanley A. Berger, Physics Today

'… a modern introductory book on the subject is a welcome addition to the literature, and, at the price … this is a really good buy!' AIA Journal

'… a thorough introduction to conducting fluid mechanics … an excellent and informative book that can be well recommended'. S. W. H. Cowley, Contemporary Physics

'This textbook is written from an interesting viewpoint. The author cares greatly about the student. The language of this book is simple, vivid, yet fully scientific. It is a real pleasure to read it. … worth recommending, not only to students, but also to everyone who is interested in MHD, particularly to theoreticians who, as a rule, know almost nothing about metallurgical applications of MHD.' Applied Mechanics Review

Présentation de l'éditeur

Magnetic fields influence many natural and man-made flows. They are routinely used in industry to heat, pump, stir and levitate liquid metals. There is the terrestrial magnetic field which is maintained by fluid motion in the earth's core, the solar magnetic field, which generates sunspots and solar flares, and the galactic field which influences the formation of stars. This is an introductory text on magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) - the study of the interaction of magnetic fields and conducting fluids. This book is intended to serve as an introductory text for advanced undergraduates and postgraduate students in physics, applied mathematics and engineering. The material in the text is heavily weighted towards incompressible flows and to terrestrial (as distinct from astrophysical) applications. The final sections of the text also contain an outline of the latest advances in the metallurgical applications of MHD and so are relevant to professional researchers in applied mathematics, engineering and metallurgy.

Excellent introduction to physics behind the MHD equations 14 février 2003
Par Vladislav Kravchenko - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you want a really well written explanation of what is a physical meaning of the MHD equations, what are the fundamental ideas behind them with examples from solar spots to metallurgical applications, nicely and clearly illustrated, this is the book for you.
Congratulations to the author!

Well-written introduction to MHD 27 juin 2009
Par MJMK - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Focusing on the physics of fluid flow, electromagnetics and their interactions, Davidson has written a very clear text which serves as an excellent introduction to this subject. He includes the mathematical formulations, but does not dwell on the exact solutions of the governing equations. Instead he spends most of the book using scaling analysis and approximate solutions to elucidate the physical mechanisms behind EM-driven flows. Davidson should also be commended for his concentration on MHD flows of engineering interest, particularly metallurgical applications (my field of research), although he does not neglect geological and stellar applications.

The author should also be praised for his clear writing style, which is easy to read without dumbing down the subject. Davidson has provided a model for other scientists and engineers who aspire to write texts: it is possible to write a useful and illuminating textbook in a readable style.

This book is highly recommended for anyone with knowledge of either fluid mechanics or EM as a way to learn the basics of the other field and their interactions.
Great book 8 janvier 2012

This book is,at the same time, very clear,very detailed and understandable even for a non-specialist of MHD like me. Congratulations to the author, only a few scientists are able to obtain such a union among so different qualities.

Splendid Introduction 29 mars 2009
Par J. Leeman - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A well written book linking to applications well. Not incredibly heavy on the math, but only suited to those fluent with the entire calculus series. I particularly enjoyed the examples from many fields. For awhile we dwell on the geodynamo then off to propulsion then off into metallurgy. I agree: Congratulations to the author on such a well organized volume!

Very good text 31 mai 2011
Par unaimedarrow - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There aren't too many books available on this subject so I'm forced to evaluate this book on its own merits rather than in comparison to other books on this subject. The text is clearly written and doesn't take too much for granted. It does assume that the reader has knowledge of integral and differential calculus (which I believe that any book on this subject would require also).
