Environmental Turbulence explains how to understand environmental and geophysical turbulence, both at a theoretical level and in engineering applications. Sections cover the effects of these new features on the fundamental flow dynamics in relatively simple domains. That is, how the turbulence statistics and structure are modified by the stabilizing or destabilizing effects of buoyancy and rotation is surveyed. Scalar transport is also described in detail. Flow in more complex domains is then described, focusing on vegetated and urban canopies, wind farms, air-sea interfaces, the upper ocean and clouds.Turbulence in environmental media is strongly modulated by buoyancy forces at all scales and by rotation at the largest scales, in contrast to canonical turbulent flows. It is rarely steady, which can give rise to non-equilibrium effects, and the domains such as wind farms or cities are often quite complex, leading to more intricate dynamics than in classic wall-bounded or free shear flows.

Characterization of Micro and Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications is a helpful guide for industry researchers, academicians, regulatory experts and material scientists working in the field of pharmaceuticals, cosmeceuticals, nutraceuticals, agriculture, food, fragrance, and in the chemical industries. It aims to provide a one-stop resources on all the analytical techniques used in the field of micro and nanoparticles evaluation and characterization. The book's chapters bring together knowledge on current analytical methodologies, limitations and advances in the in vitro analysis field.Users from the equipment industry will benefit from its innovations by understanding the needs of researchers and the challenges of current techniques. With the expectation of "high-quality data" essentially dependent on the analytical methodology applied for characterization, this is integral to success. For routine products like tablets, capsules, and solutions, the regulatory guidelines, product-specific monographs, and pharmacopoeial annexures are set and "standard of operation." However, for nano-micro pharmaceuticals, regulatory guidelines are still evolving.

Fundamentals of Uncertainty Quantification for Engineers: Methods and Models provides a comprehensive introduction to uncertainty quantification (UQ) accompanied by a wide variety of applied examples, implementation details, and practical exercises to reinforce the concepts outlined in the book. Sections start with a review of the history of probability theory and recent developments of UQ methods in the domains of applied mathematics and data science. Major concepts of probability axioms, conditional probability, and Bayes’ rule are discussed and examples of probability distributions in parametric data analysis, reliability, risk analysis, and materials informatics are included.Random processes, sampling methods, and surrogate modeling techniques including multivariate polynomial regression, Gaussian process regression, multi-fidelity surrogate, support-vector machine, and decision tress are also covered. Methods for model selection, calibration, and validation are introduced next, followed by chapters on sensitivity analysis, stochastic expansion methods, Markov models, and non-probabilistic methods. The book concludes with a chapter describing the methods that can be used to predict UQ in systems, such as Monte Carlo, stochastic expansion, upscaling, Langevin dynamics, and inverse problems, with example applications in multiscale modeling, simulations, and materials design.
