An Introduction to Metamaterials and Waves in Composites by Biswajit Banerjee

By Biswajit Banerjee

Requiring no complex wisdom of wave propagation, An creation to Metamaterials and Waves in Composites makes a speciality of theoretical facets of metamaterials, periodic composites, and layered composites. The e-book offers rookies a platform from which they could begin exploring the topic in additional detail.

After introducing ideas concerning elasticity, acoustics, and electrodynamics in media, the textual content provides aircraft wave ideas to the equations that describe elastic, acoustic, and electromagnetic waves. It examines the airplane wave growth of assets in addition to scattering from curved interfaces, in particular spheres and cylinders. the writer then covers electrodynamic, acoustic, and elastodynamic metamaterials. He additionally describes examples of modifications, elements of acoustic cloaking, and functions of pentamode fabrics to acoustic cloaking. With a spotlight on periodic composites, the textual content makes use of the Bloch-Floquet theorem to discover the powerful habit of composites within the quasistatic restrict, offers the quasistatic equations of elastodynamic and electromagnetic waves, and investigates Brillouin zones and band gaps in periodic buildings. the ultimate bankruptcy discusses wave propagation in easily various layered media, anisotropic density of a periodic layered medium, and quasistatic homogenization of laminates.

This e-book offers a release pad for study into elastic and acoustic metamaterials. the various rules awarded haven't begun to be learned experimentally—the booklet encourages readers to discover those principles and convey them to technological maturity.

High-Pressure Physics (Scottish Graduate Series)

High-pressure technology has gone through a revolution within the final 15 years. the advance of extreme new x-ray and neutron assets, more suitable detectors, new instrumentation, enormously elevated computation strength, and complex computational algorithms have enabled researchers to figure out the habit of topic at static pressures in way over four hundred GPa.

Physics of Thermal Phenomena: Introduction to Thermal Physics

This is often an advent to fundamentals of Thermal Physics and is meant for publish graduate, undergraduate or even degree novices. Thermal Physics will be traced again to the Nobel Laureate Murray Gell-ann who found the quark and who famously believed that there has been not anything attention-grabbing in any activity butparticle physics.

Dispersion Stability, Microstructure and Phase Transition of Anisotropic Nanodiscs (Springer Theses)

This thesis explores the dispersion balance, microstructure and section transitions considering the nanoclay system. It describes the lately found formation of colloidal gels through routes: the 1st is thru part separation and moment is by means of equilibrium gelation and contains the 1st mentioned experimental statement of a procedure with excessive element ratio nanodiscs.

Electronic Phase Transitions (Modern Problems in Condensed Matter Sciences)

Digital part Transitions offers with issues, that are shortly on the leading edge of medical examine in smooth solid-state idea. Anderson localization, which has basic implications in lots of parts of solid-state physics in addition to spin glasses, with its impact on rather assorted study actions corresponding to neural networks, are examples which are reviewed during this e-book.
