This book includes contributions from researchers around the world on numerical developments and applications to predict fluid flow and heat transfer, with an emphasis on thermal hydraulics computational fluid dynamics. Our ability to simulate larger problems with greater fidelity has vastly expanded over the past decade. The collection of material presented in this book augments the ever-increasing body of knowledge concerning the important topic of thermal hydraulics.
T he science of human nutrition and its applications to health promotion continue to gain momentum. In
the relatively short time since the release of the first edition of this Encyclopedia, a few landmark
discoveries have had a dramatic multiplying effect over nutrition science: the mapping of the human genome,
the links between molecular bioenergetics and lifespan, the influence of nutrients on viral mutation, to name
A transmission or gearbox provides speed and torque conversions
from a rotating power source to another device using gear ratios,
including for a motor vehicle partly because of the limitations of
internal combustion engines.Usually found near motors of some sort, gearboxes are used to
reduce the load on the motor by using the motor's own momentum
to keep it turning.
