Abstract

An interview with Milton Friedman in 1996 ‐ presents his reflections on some of the important issues surrounding the evolution of, and currrent debates within, modern macroeconomics. A world‐renowned economist and prolific author since the 1930s, Milton Friedman has had a considerable impact on macroeconomic theory and policy making. Associated mostly with monetarism and the efficacy of free markets, his work has ranged over a broader area ‐ microeconomics, methodology, consumption function, applied statistics, international economics, monetary theory, history and policy, business cycles and inflation. In the interview discusses Keynes’s General Theory, monetarism, new classical macroeconomics, methodology, economic policy, European union and the monetarist counter‐revolution.

Abstract

A PROPOSAL to replace the 7‐ft. No. 1 wind tunnel at the N.P.L. by two new tunnels of the open jet type, housed in the old tunnel building, was put forward in 1930, and one of the new tunnels has now been completed and tested. The present report deals mainly with preliminary experiments on models, which were carried out to ensure that the projected tunnels should give the best possible aerodynamic performance.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present a new eddy‐viscosity formulation designed to exhibit a correct response to streamline curvature and flow rotation. The formulation is implemented into a linear k‐ ε turbulence model with a two‐layer near‐wall treatment in a commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver.

Design/methodology/approach

A simple, robust formula is developed for the eddy‐viscosity that is curvature/rotation sensitive and also satisfies realizability and invariance principles. The new model is tested on several two‐ and three‐dimensional problems, including rotating channel flow, U‐bend flow and internally cooled turbine airfoil conjugate heat transfer. Predictions are compared to those with popular eddy‐viscosity models.

Findings

Converged solutions to a variety of turbulent flow problems are obtained with no additional computational expense over existing two‐equation models. In all cases, results with the new model are superior to two other popular k‐ ε model variants, especially for regions in which rapid rotation or strong streamline curvature exists.

Research limitations/implications

The approach adopted here for linear eddy‐viscosity models may be extended in a straightforward manner to non‐linear eddy‐viscosity or explicit algebraic stress models.

Practical implications

The new model is a simple “plug‐in” formula that contains important physics not included in most linear eddy‐viscosity models and is easy to implement in most flow solvers.

Originality/value

The present model for curved and rotating flows is developed without the need for second derivatives of velocity in the formulation, which are known to present difficulties with unstructured meshes.

Abstract

The following classified, annotated list of titles is intended to provide reference librarians with a current checklist of new reference books, and is designed to supplement the RSR review column, “Recent Reference Books,” by Frances Neel Cheney. “Reference Books in Print” includes all additional books received prior to the inclusion deadline established for this issue. Appearance in this column does not preclude a later review in RSR. Publishers are urged to send a copy of all new reference books directly to RSR as soon as published, for immediate listing in “Reference Books in Print.” Reference books with imprints older than two years will not be included (with the exception of current reprints or older books newly acquired for distribution by another publisher). The column shall also occasionally include library science or other library related publications of other than a reference character.

Abstract

In order to succeed in an action under the Equal Pay Act 1970, should the woman and the man be employed by the same employer on like work at the same time or would the woman still be covered by the Act if she were employed on like work in succession to the man? This is the question which had to be solved in Macarthys Ltd v. Smith. Unfortunately it was not. Their Lordships interpreted the relevant section in different ways and since Article 119 of the Treaty of Rome was also subject to different interpretations, the case has been referred to the European Court of Justice.
