Publisher Comments:

This book describes experimental and computer modeling techniques to characterize and design mesoscale (nanometer to micron) phenomena, which determine properties of many scientifically and industrially important fluid materials.

Book News Annotation:

Mesoscale describes structures and behaviors at lengths between nanometers and 0.1 micrometers—too large for molecular or atomic characterization methods, but too small to be fully characterized by their bulk behavior or modeled using continuum models. Phenomena at that scale, however, determine the properties of many scientifically and commercially important materials, and it is primarily to industrial research scientists working with such materials that the 25 five papers are addressed. A dozen of them describe experimental techniques for characterizing mesoscale structures. Others discuss mesoscale modeling and simulation methods, and case studies and applications showing how an understanding of mesoscale structure, properties, and phase behavior can be used in materials design.
