By Dieter Straub

Alternative Mathematical idea of Non-equilibrium Phenomena provides a completely new theoretical method of advanced non-equilibrium phenomena, particularly Gibbs/Falk thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. This leading edge new concept allows inclusion of all nation variables and introduces a brand new vector-dissipation velocity-which ends up in precious restatements of momentum, the second one legislations, and tensors for the legislation of movement, friction, and warmth conduction. This application-oriented textual content is comparatively self-contained and is a superb guide-book for engineers with a robust curiosity in basics, or for execs utilizing utilized arithmetic and physics in engineering functions. This publication emphasizes macroscopic phenomena, focusing in particular on gaseous states, even though family to liquid and crystalline states also are thought of. the writer offers a brand new substitute Continuum idea of Compressible Fluids (AT) which providesa qualitative description of the topic in predominantly actual phrases, minimizing the mathematical premises. The method mentioned has functions in a variety of fields outdoors of physics in parts together with common approach concept, TheoreticalEconomics, and Biophysics and drugs. Key positive aspects * provides the 1st thought in a position to dealing with non-equilibria phenomena * deals a unified thought of all branches of macroscopic physics * Considers a constant and uniform view of truth, supported by way of glossy arithmetic, resulting in effects varied than these produced through classical theories * ends up in a metamorphosis of paradigms in physics, engineering, and common philosophy

Example text

Let us now examine those results, which are accessible only by the adequate interpretation of the text, as to some key notions in classical thermodynamics that are hardly or not at all treated by Gibbs. From this analysis, the great work of Gibbs can still gain an independent and actual significance. First, in not mentioning the cycles and the engines, Gibbs' foremost intention was to tell us that he was not interested in engineering applications. An even stronger point is that the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics had both been renounced in Gibbs' complete essay.

1. Falk's Principle 27 in the special sense used here. In Western industrial societies they are regarded as uncommonly profound. It is generally accepted by the public that these laws, at least on the macroscopic level of experience, are deterministic and logically true without exception. Indeed, by their sheer number of applications they have achieved great triumphs. Therefore, following Reichenbach (1931, p. 30), people often bear a mental attitude toward science that can be compared with religious veneration.

Gibbs' Fundamental Equation and System Modeling 35 of which are entirely independent of any single system. This is true, though the latter system might yet be distinguished by a certain function ft different from that of any other system. , as well as on the sort of the material specified by the three constants CQ, a^ and K. Following Falk (1990, p. 17) cannot be proven to be independent of a system; as a matter of fact they can at most be made plausible. The inverse question is formed by the problem for the intended description of physical phenomena: How then do its construction elements work to establish the seven quantities U, S, V, n, T, p, and fi as universally physical?
