Flow equations for composite gases by
J. M Burgers(
Book
)
14 editions published between 1960 and 1969 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The volume develops complete sets of flow equations for composite gases, including those giving the components of heat flow and the pressure tensor. Attention is given to both the singleand multifluid pictures. Topics treated include the BhatnagarGrossKrook and FokkerPlanck approximations, charged particles in electric and magnetic fields, and the effects of chemical reactions and of radiation. Separate treatment of the left and right sides of the Boltzmann equation facilitates discussion of various collision problems, crosssection cutoff effect with twoparticle distribution functions, the standard MaxwellBoltzmann collision integral, and other topics

Selected papers of J.M. Burgers by
J. M Burgers(
Book
)
8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
J.M. Burgers (18951981) is regarded as one of the leading scientists in the field of fluid mechanics, contributing many important results, a number of which still bear his name. However, the work of this outstanding scientist was mostly published in the Proceedings and Transactions of The Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences, of which he was a distinguished member. Nowadays, this work is almost impossible to obtain through the usual library channels. Therefore, the editors have decided to reissue the most important work of J.M. Burgers, which gives the reader access to the original papers which led to important results, now known as the Burgers Equation, the Burgers Vector and the Burgers Vortex. Further, the book contains a biography of J.M. Burgers, which provides the reader with both information on his scientific life, as well as a rounded impression of the many activities which J.M. Burgers performed or was involved in outside his science

Statistical problems connected with asymptotic solutions of the onedimensional nonlinear diffusion equation by
J. M Burgers(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The topic treated in the report is a distant outcome of old attempts to arrive at a statistical theory of turbulent fluid motion, modeled after the example of classical statistical mechanics as applied to the kinetic theory of gases. The attempts did not bring the desired success, but they made clear that essential features of the spectrum of turbulence are due to the simultaneous presence of dissipative as well as nonlinear inertial terms in the equations of motion. It seemed attractive therefore to study the interaction between these terms in an extremely simplified equation, the onedimensional nonlinear, diffusion or heat flow equation: (U sub t) + u(u sub x) = nu (u sub xx). The study proved to have an interest of itself, and a set of results referring to 'asymptotic solutions', corresponding to vanishing viscosity and large values of t, is described in the report
