Metallogeny of Lode Gold Deposits, The

A Syngenetic Perspective

 

Elsevier, 2015.

ISBNs 9780128032220

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

The Metallogeny of Lode Gold Deposits: A Syngenetic Perspective is a synthesis of lode gold vein forming processes, addressing the commonality in similar worldwide deposits. The book’s empirical model incorporates widely known and accepted principles of ore deposition and shows how it applies in the volcanic-sedimentary greenstone belt environment. Several chapters detail outcrop maps and photos of field occurrences and textures. The interpretations flow directly from the authors’ field work, and are coupled with analyses of underlying physical processes. Utilizing detailed geological mapping, field work, and chemical analyses as the basis of a syngenetic formation mode, the text arms readers with the tools necessary to accurately analyze and interpret new data on the subject. This includes information on decoding the significance of asymmetry in vein formation, as well as the role of lamprophyres in gold camps, how Archean geology requires integration into a lode vein formation model, and how to develop an understanding of the worldwide applicability of gold cycles to lode vein formation and exploration and how it can be applied to deposits of all ages.

  • Presents the first book to galvanize lode gold research into a single authoritative reference
  • Simplifies the complexity of lode gold’s underlying processes and presents valid concepts surrounding the lode gold forming environment
  • Features color figures, illustrations, and photos that enrich the content’s focus and aid in the retention of key concepts

Modeling in Transport Phenomena

A Conceptual Approach

 

2nd ed. Elsevier Science B.V., 2007.

ISBNs 9780444530219

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Modeling in Transport Phenomena, Second Edition presents and clearly explains with example problems the basic concepts and their applications to fluid flow, heat transfer, mass transfer, chemical reaction engineering and thermodynamics. A balanced approach is presented between analysis and synthesis, students will understand how to use the solution in engineering analysis. Systematic derivations of the equations and the physical significance of each term are given in detail, for students to easily understand and follow up the material.
There is a strong incentive in science and engineering to understand why a phenomenon behaves the way it does. For this purpose, a complicated real-life problem is transformed into a mathematically tractable problem while preserving the essential features of it. Such a process, known as mathematical modeling, requires understanding of the basic concepts. This book teaches students these basic concepts and shows the similarities between them. Answers to all problems are provided allowing students to check their solutions. Emphasis is on how to get the model equation representing a physical phenomenon and not on exploiting various numerical techniques to solve mathematical equations.

* A balanced approach is presented between analysis and synthesis, students will understand how to use the solution in engineering analysis.
* Systematic derivations of the equations as well as the physical significance of each term are given in detail
* Many more problems and examples are given than in the first edition - answers provided
