Shocks in fluids result from fluid flow that is more rapid than the speed of
a compression wave. Thus there is no means for the flow to adjust gradually.
Pressure, velocity, and temperatures change abruptly, causing severe fatigue
and component destruction in military aircraft and engine turbines. This
problem is not limited to supersonic aircraft; many parts of subsonic craft are
Learning objectives in this chapter: Understand basics of data-flow models and the related concepts (def-use pairs, dominators…), understand some analyses that can be performed with the data-flow model of a program, understand basic trade-offs in modeling data flow.
For nearly 20 years, since the emergence of PCs, Lotus 1-2-3, and Microsoft Excel in the 1980’s,
spreadsheet models have been the dominant vehicles for finance professionals in the business world to
implement their financial knowledge. Yet even today, most Corporate Finance textbooks rely on
calculators as the primary tool and have little (if any) coverage of how to build spreadsheet models. This
book fills that gap. It teaches students how to build financial models in Excel.
Starting from a derivation of the conservation equations for multicomponent multiphase flows in porous media and a discussion of convective vs. diffusive/dispersive transport, the reader is introduced to a mathematical framework, based on the method of characteristics, for solving convection-dominated transport problems.

In most OECD pension funds, bonds remain by far the dominant asset class, accounting for 50% of
total assets under management on average (OECD Pension markets in focus July 2011). Green bonds could
therefore be a channel to direct significant pension fund capital towards green projects. However the
market size for green bonds is still small and illiquid at USD 15.6 billion as of August 2011 (see next
section for discussion).
(BQ) Part 1 book "The finite element method" has contents: Introduction and the equations of fluid dynamics; convection dominated problems - finite element appriximations to the convection-diffusion equation; a general algorithm for compressible and incompressible flows - the characteristic-based split (CBS) algorithm; incompressible laminar flow - newtonian and non-newtonian fluids; free surfaces, buoyancy and turbulent incompressible flows.
Transnational flows of people, financial resources, goods, information and culture have
recently been increasing in a drastic way and have profoundly transformed the world
(Ritzer and Malone, 2001). This phenomenon has been labeled globalization. As a result, a
great deal of debate and discussion, even controversy (Bird and Stevens, 2003) has taken
place about globalization in various disciplines from different angles. In fact, there seems to
be a controversy in regards to globalization and the contradictory meanings associated with

left panels). This ridge separates the Atlantic Ocean southwest of the ridge from the Norwegian Sea to the northeast.
The sill of the ridge reaches different depths in different areas. Most of it is shallower than 500 m, but a small part is
deeper with the Faroe Bank Channel being the deepest passage across the ridge.
The upper layers of the waters surrounding the Faroes are dominated by ‘Modified North Atlantic Water’ which derives
from the North Atlantic Current flowing towards the east and north-east (Hansen and Østerhus, 2000) (Figure 22.214.171.124,
upper left panel).
In some countries, the possibility of women
migrating may be influenced by religious and other
sociocultural constraints. A study of Asian migration
demonstrated that while women dominate migration
flows from countries such as the Philippines and
Sri Lanka, sociocultural factors in countries such as
Bangladesh and Pakistan apparently limit female
emigration (Battistella 2003, 1-33).
Physical units can be specific to the kind of resource
recorded (tonnes, cubic meters, hectares, number
of units) or common to a range of resources. In
this case, a unit-equivalent needs to be found. For
example, material flow accounts which are currently
the main basis for resource-efficiency analysis record
'everything' in tonnes. Another solution is to use
carbon or energy unit-equivalents, as in UNFCCC
reporting. The Ecological Footprint Accounts
propose surface area as a general unit-equivalent.
These solutions are obviously incomplete
In arid and semi-arid regions, evapotranspiration rates are much higher, recharge is less, flow
paths longer and residence times much greater and hence much higher levels of natural
mineralisation, often dominated by sodium and chloride, can be encountered. Thus the major
ion contents and TDS are often high. In some desert regions, even if groundwater can be
found it may be so salty (extremely high TDS) as to be undrinkable, and the difficulty of
meeting even the most basic domestic requirements can have serious impacts on health and
The CWA contains both “water-quality based” regulatory controls, which vary
according to the designated use (e.g., drinking water source, fishable, swimmable) and
attributes (e.g., volume and rate of flow) of the receiving water body, and “technology-
based” effluent standards that are achievable using available pollution control technology.
One of the largest sources of energy flow in many buildings is the sun. We are
used to thinking of the sun in terms of providing light, which with proper
design can avoid the need for artificial lighting in buildings for the majority of
the year. In addition to light, solar heat gain through windows typically
dominates the cooling demands of commercial buildings and without
adequate control can lead to reliance on air conditioning. On the other hand,
the same energy can also be harvested for both space and water heating in
carefully designed buildings. ...
The old strategies are failing in another sense as well. They no longer describe reality.
The field suffers from a terrible disconnect between the dominant models and prescriptions that
flow from them, on the one hand, and the reality that people are coping with, on the other. This
is a warning sign. We need to re-think. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the
Millennium Project provide a strategic setting in which to do just that.
The focus of this Task Force is on Goals 4 and 5 on child mortality and maternal health...
Chapter 4 - The U.S. economy: Private and public sectors. The chapter answers some very important questions: What types of income do households receive and how do they dispose of it? What are the types of business enterprises and why has the corporate form of business dominated? What is government’s economic role in the economy and how does it fit into the circular flow diagram? What are the sources of government revenues and how does it allocate its expenditures?
