By Bahman Zohuri

This ebook delves deeply into the real-world applied sciences in the back of the ‘directed strength guns’ that many think exist simply in the confines of technology fiction. to the contrary, directed power guns comparable to excessive strength lasers are very genuine, and this publication offers a crash path in all of the actual and mathematical techniques that make those guns a truth. Written to serve either scientists learning the actual phenomena of laser results, in addition to engineers concentrating on useful purposes, the writer offers labored examples demonstrating matters corresponding to tips on how to remedy for warmth diffusion equation for various boundary and preliminary stipulations. a number of sections are dedicated to reviewing and working with strategies of diffusion equations using assistance from the critical rework ideas. finally this e-book examines the cutting-edge in at the moment to be had excessive strength laser applied sciences, and indicates destiny instructions for accelerating sensible functions within the field.<

Com. 10 NIKE2D and NIKE3D Computer Codes Series NIKE2D is an implicit finite element code for analyzing the finite deformation, quasistatic, and dynamic response of two-dimensional, axisymmetric, plane-strain, and plane-stress solids. The finite element formulation accounts for both material and geometric nonlinearities. A number of material models are incorporated to simulate a wide range of material behavior including elastoplasticity, anisotropy, creep, thermal effects, and rate dependence. Arbitrary contact between independent bodies is handled by a variety of slide-line algorithms.

TOPAZ2D is no longer funded for active development or direct user support and is made available on an “as-is” basis. Select hardware projects have chosen to fund limited development or maintenance activities. TOPAZ3D is a three-dimensional, implicit, finite element computer code for heat transfer analysis. It can be used to solve for the steady-state or transient temperature field on three-dimensional geometries. Material properties may be temperature dependent and either isotropic or orthotropic.

Likewise, for T > 25  C, the existing polynomial coefficients to describe specific heats, enthalpies, and conductivities are maintained. The code was written for the Air Force Weapon Laboratory (AFWL) primarily to allow evaluation of thin-layer stack response to X-ray deposition resulting in one-dimensional (1-D) strain stress response. The code takes into account the X-ray generation of secondary cascade particles (photoelectrons, Auger electrons, and fluorescent photons) using a cascade routine and incorporates a thermal condition routine allowing the effects of rapid thermal diffusivity to be included.
