  • Can I get a hard copy of the “Fundamentals of Die Casting Design?”"
  • I get a hard copy of the "Fundamentals of Compressible Flow?"
  • Do you intend to provide numerical sections?
  • Can I send you my homework?
  • Does anyone teach your solution to oblique shock or use your material in filling and evacuating chambers?
  • Can I send you a problem that I encounter in fundamentals of gas dynamics?
    Can I get a hard copy of the "Fundamentals of Die Casting Design?"
    A hard copy can be mailed for $30 including the delivery cost within the U.S.A.
    Can I get a hard copy of the "Fundamentals of Compressible Flow?"
    You can order your hard copy of the book "Fundamentals of Compressible Fluid Mechanics." The cost of the book is $12.00. The shipping and handling for the 48 continent U.S.A. is $6.95. For other locations (other than 48 continent U.S.A.) please email to barmeir at gmail.com. If you are interested, please send money order payable to Genick Bar-Meir and mail to Genick Bar-Meir, 2729 West Jarvis Ave., Chicago, Il 60645.
    Do you intend to provide numerical sections?
    Yes, on the method of characteristics. I also plan to add a numerical section on a transient one-dimensional calculation Piecewise-parabolic Method (PPM), (a Godunov-type method) which extracts a high degree of accuracy from cell-averaged data on a given grid.

    Can I send you my homework?
    No. If you do not understand a specific question, I will help you, depending on how much time is available. At the same time, please do send any problem you encounter in fundamentals of gas dynamics. If I find the problem interesting, I will add it to the book and acknowledge your contribution.

    Does anyone teach your solution to oblique shock or use your material in filling and evacuating chambers?
    The analytical solution on oblique shock is relatively new. The semi-analytical solution is available in two books. This semi-analytical solution is the predecessor to the current solution (the same mathematical expressions). However, the current solution is used in NASA, several universities in India, many other universities. You can read more about history of the oblique shock solution here.

    The chamber filling is used by many universities, including in Israel, and USA.

    Can I send you a problem that I encounter in fundamentals of gas dynamics?
    Yes!
    Additionally, if I find it interesting, I also will add it to the book and acknowledge it as your contribution.
