The conceptualization of an issue (modeling) and the computational answer of this challenge (simulation), is the root of Computational technology. This coupled pastime is exclusive in numerous respects. It permits virtually any complicated method to be analyzed with predictive potential by means of invoking the multiscale paradigm linking unit-process types at reduce size (or time) scales the place primary ideas were tested to calculations on the approach point.

The group of multiscale fabrics modeling has advanced right into a multidisciplinary crew with a few pointed out troublesome areas of curiosity. Sidney Yip and Tomas Diaz De l. a. Rubia, the editors of this quantity, have collected 18 contributions that exhibit the conceptual merits of modeling which, coupled with the unparalleled computing strength via simulations, permit scientists to take on the formibable difficulties of our society, similar to the quest for hydrocarbons, knowing the constitution of a plague, or the intersection among simulations and actual info in severe environments.

Scientific Modeling and Simulations advocates the medical virtues of modeling and simulation, and likewise encourages the pass fertilization among groups, exploitations of high-performance computing, and experiment-simulation synergies.

The contents of this ebook have been formerly released in Scientific Modeling and Simulations, Vol 15, No. 1-3, 2008.

An interpretation of M is that if m M, the air resistance is still small when the object has fallen the distance L. In other words, the mass m of the object is to be compared with the total mass of the air inside that “tube” of cross section area A and length L, which is cut out by the trajectory of the falling object. 2 for the motion of an object under the influence of gravity and air resistance. As an alternative approach, we can form a quantity L* with the dimension of length from the quantities m, A and ρ: L∗ = m Aρ The interpretation of this length is that effects due to air resistance are small as long as the distance L of fall obeys L L*.

In this example, however, we will discuss intermediate and high temperatures. The purpose is to illustrate a fitting procedure, rather than physical rigor, and some simplifications are made in the following discussion. , Ref. [5]. The dominating contribution to the heat capacity comes from phonons in the harmonic approximation, Char . In a crystal with N atoms there are 3N different phonon modes, with frequencies ω described by a frequency distribution function (density of states) F(ω). Each individual phonon frequency gives a contribution to the heat capacity, which has the mathematical form of the Einstein model.

Our examples suggest that such a mathematical representation is a generic feature of physical phenomena. In fact, Buckingham’s theorem (π theorem, pi theorem) says that all physical relations can be given this form. It is named after the symbol chosen for the dimensionless groups in a paper by Buckingham [3], but other scientists have independently arrived at equivalent results. In a slightly restricted version of the theorem, it can be formulated as follows. Let a physical phenomenon be described by n linearly independent quantities ai (i = 1, .
