Particulate discrete element analysis is becoming increasingly popular for research in geomechanics as well as geology, chemical engineering, powder technology, petroleum engineering and in studying the physics of granular materials. With increased computing power, practising engineers are also becoming more interested in using this technology for analysis in industrial applications. This is the first single work on Discrete Element Modelling (DEM) providing the information to get started with this powerful numerical modelling approach.
Written by an independent author with experience both in developing DEM codes and using commercial codes, this book provides the basic details of the numerical method and the approaches used to interpret the results of DEM simulations. Providing a basic overview of the numerical method, Particulate Discrete Element Modelling discusses issues related to time integration and numerical stability, particle types, contact modelling and boundary conditions. It summarizes approaches to interpret DEM data so that users can maximize their insight into the material response using DEM. The aim of this book is to provide both users and prospective users of DEM with a concise reference book that includes tips to optimize their usage.
Particulate Discrete Element Modelling is suitable both for first time DEM analysts as well as more experienced users. It will be of use to professionals, researchers and higher level students, as it presents a theoretical overview of DEM as well as practical guidance on running DEM simulations and interpreting DEM simulation data.
The development of innovative drugs is becoming more difficult while relying on empirical approaches. This inspired all major pharmaceutical companies to pursue alternative model-based paradigms. The key question is: How to find innovative compounds and, subsequently, appropriate dosage regimens?
Written from the industry perspective and based on many years of experience, this book offers:
- Concepts for creation of drug-disease models, introduced and supplemented with extensive MATLAB programs
- Guidance for exploration and modification of these programs to enhance the understanding of key principles
- Usage of differential equations to pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic and (patho-) physiologic problems thereby acknowledging their dynamic nature
- A range of topics from single exponential decay to adaptive dosing, from single subject exploration to clinical trial simulation, and from empirical to mechanistic disease modeling.
Students with an undergraduate mathematical background or equivalent education, interest in life sciences and skills in a high-level programming language such as MATLAB, are encouraged to engage in model-based pharmaceutical research and development.
Multiscale modeling is becoming essential for accurate, rapid simulation in science and engineering. This book presents the results of three decades of research on multiscale modeling in process engineering from principles to application, and its generalization for different fields. This book considers the universality of meso-scale phenomena for the first time, and provides insight into the emerging discipline that unifies them, meso-science, as well as new perspectives for virtual process engineering.
Multiscale modeling is applied in areas including:
Jinghai Li is Vice-President of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), a professor at the Institute of Process Engineering, CAS, and leader of the EMMS (Energy-minimizing multiscale) Group.
Wei Ge, Wei Wang, Ning Yang and Junwu Wang are professors at the EMMS Group, part of the Institute of Process Engineering, CAS.
Xinhua Liu, Limin Wang, Xianfeng He and Xiaowei Wang are associate professors at the EMMS Group, part of the Institute of Process Engineering, CAS.
Mooson Kwauk is an emeritus director of the Institute of Process Engineering, CAS, and is an advisor to the EMMS Group.
This book provides an introduction to the general landscape of group counseling by way of the idea that learning to be an effective group member is essential to becoming a group leader. Interactive scenarios place the reader right into the group, providing insights into the challenges and opportunities of participation. Each chapter explores a different stage of group work and concludes with useful suggestions and tips for having a successful experience. Throughout the book, an emphasis is placed on member development and personal growth being achieved through self-awareness, interpersonal experiences, and dynamic ways of being. Cultural diversity, ethics and confidentiality, and involvement strategies and skills are also discussed. With its unique, practical, and engaging approach, this book will be invaluable to counseling students as an excellent complement to the theory and research on group counseling.
Have you ever wanted to get into modelling? Or to simple lean up? This book will get you lean by combining a varied and challenging 6 Week weight program, intense cardio regime, delicious diet plan and the secret ingredient - 16:8 Intermittent Fasting. These three elements combine to create turbo-charged regime geared to burning fat, toning muscle and making you look amazing. If you want to Tone Up, Lose Fat and look like an Fitness Model without fat loss pills and throwing precious time and hard-earned money down the drain at the gym, then read on. The business of Fitness Modelling is a highly lucrative industry - you can easily earn hundreds or thousands of pounds/dollars for an hour or twos work. Not only that you can even do work abroad with expenses fully covered. A fitness model epitomizes muscular athleticism. This book gives you a workout and diet regime, packed full of tips, hacks and methods to getting into fantastic shape. In the modern world of social media you can also attract attention from sponsors. This means you don't even have to compete as in the old days a bodybuilder would of, now you can gain followers, get sponsors and get paid through Instagram and Facebook. Many of my friends earn a fantastic living through sponsors. This can be an exceptional way of life. 6 Reasons to Make this Book an Essential Part of Fitness Modeling: 1) A Full 6 week regime that is easy to follow to reveal the amazing body you always had. 2) Times of when to eat and when not to eat to utilize Intermittent Fasting to burn fat fast 3) Varied and Challenging Workouts include - Weight Training, Cardio Workouts and Yoga 4) 6 Weeks of Diet plans 5) A Guide To Approaching Modelling Agents - what to do to get started and what to look out for to avoid being ripped off 6) Tips, Tricks and easy Hacks to Turbo Charge your weight loss In a word - Fitness Modelling is all about aesthetics - the visually pleasing physiques - strong legs, ripped arms, toned chest, lean back all tapering to and perhaps the most important - a tight taut flat stomach. The great thing about a fitness body is they are achievable, they aren't some gigantic freak of nature with ludicrous conditioning. You can achieve these physiques if you put the work in. In this book I'm going to give you a challenging workout, diet and Yoga routine to get this physique - the fitness body. Whether you want to actually get into this business or just create a great body, this workout routine will help massively. If you do want to get into the industry you will need an agent. But to get an agent you need a portfolio and that means a building a fantastic body first. Added Benefits of Reading This Book: --Simplicity I keep things simple - no B.S rubbish about doing LESS training and eating LESS and how there is some SECRET holding you back. How did the bodybuilders in the 60's and 70's look so great? Training frequency and nutrition. How and what - that's the only secret. --Training Frequency. Don't worry you don't need to follow months of weird training routines. --Nutrition Nutrition is considered the most important part of building muscle. If the nutrition is incorrect then it doesn't matter how impeccable your training routines are, you will not progress. I cover you for 6 weeks and because each week is varied focusing on weights, cardio and yoga - you can simply repeat, mix them up and keep going to get that amazing body. Curious? Grab your copy of "How To Build A Female Fitness Model Body, Building A Fitness Model Physique, Fitness Model Workout and Training Regime" to learn the secrets of a results-driven workout to get the model body.
