High Reynolds Number Flows Using Liquid and Gaseous Helium: Discussion of Liquid and Gaseous Helium as Test Fluids

Liquid helium has been studied for its intrinsic curiosity via a lot of the twentieth century. some time past decade, a lot has been discovered approximately warmth move in liquid helium a result of have to cool superconducting magnets and different units. the subject of the 7th Oregon convention on Low Temperature Physics was once an utilized one, specifically using liquid and gaseous helium to generate excessive Reynolds quantity flows.

Parallel Processing in Digital Control

Parallel Processing in electronic keep watch over is a quantity to be released within the new Advances in business keep an eye on sequence, edited via Professor M. J. Grimble and Dr. M. A.
