Designed to be used as a graduate-level text and as an engineering reference work, Continuum Electromechanics presents a comprehensive development of its subject—the interaction of electromagnetic forces and ponderable media, the mechanical responses to electromagnetic fields, and the reciprocal effects of the material motions produced by those fields. The author’s approach is highly interdisciplinary, and he introduces fundamental concepts from such subjects as electrohydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, plasma physics, electron beam engineering, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and physical chemistry.
The applications of continuum electromechanics are also remarkably diverse, and many of them are treated in the book, both because of their intrinsic engineering importance and as a means of illustrating basic principles. Among these applications are the design of rotating machines and synchronous generators, polymer processing, magnetic melting and pumping in metallurgical operations, the processing of plastics and glass, the manufacture of synthetic fibers, inductive and dielectric heating, thermal-to-electrical energy conversion, the control of air pollution, the design of controlled-fusion devices, image processing and printing, the magnetic levitation and propulsion of vehicles, the study of films and membranes, and the analysis of the complex electrokinetic and physicochemical processes that underlie the sensing and motor functions of biological systems. Many of these applications are presented in the form of problems.
The book consists of eleven chapters, entitled Introduction to Continuum Electromechanics; Electrodynamic Laws; Approximations, and Relations; Electromagnetic Forces, Force Densities, and Stress Tensors; Electromechanical Kinematics; Energy-Conversion Models and Processes; Charge Migration, Convection, and Relaxation; Magnetic Diffusion and Induction Interactions; Laws, Approximations, and Relations of Fluid Mechanics Statics and Dynamics of Systems Having a Static Equilibrium; Electromechanical Flows; Electromechanics with Thermal and Molecular Diffusion; and Streaming Interactions.
About the Author
JAMES R. MELCHER, an engineer and scientist widely respected r his practical applications of the principles of continuum electromechanics and a member of the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) since 1962, died on January 5, 1991, at the age of fifty-four.
Professor Melcher was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in February 1982. At the time of his death, he was the director of the Laboratory for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems at MIT and was the Julius A. Stratton Professor of Electrical Engineering and Physics. He was a member of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS).
Professor Melcher was noted for work that defined the field of continuum electromechanics and for leading in its engineering and scientific applications to human needs. He was inventor or coinventor of twelve patents.
