Download Aerodynamik der stumpfen Körper: Physikalische Grundlagen by Wolf-Heinrich Hucho PDF

By Wolf-Heinrich Hucho

Die aerodynamische Gestaltung von Fahrzeugen wie motor vehicle und Eisenbahnen, von Bauwerken wie weit gespannte Brücken, Türme oder Hochhäuser, ist eine äußerst vielschichtige Aufgabe. Ihre Auslegung basiert auf ingenieurmäßigen Verfahren, aber ihre Optimierung vorwiegend auf dem Prinzip von Trial & mistakes. Dabei erweist es sich als nützlich, das anstehende challenge auf möglichst einfache Modellfälle zurückzuführen. Das vorliegende Buch stellt die dazu erforderlichen Grundlagen bereit und beschreibt, wie sie anzuwenden sind. Gegenüber der ersten Auflage wurde das Buch vollkommen überarbeitet und erweitert: um die neuen Windlastnormen, die Seitenwindstabilität von schnellen Zügen, sowie die Wechselwirkung von Aerodynamik und Statik biegeweicher Konstruktionen. Das Kapitel über die numerischen Verfahren (CFD) wurde auf den allerneuesten Stand gebracht.
