Irreversible Thermodynamics: Theory and Applications

Front Cover
Irreversible thermodynamics is an extension of classical thermodynamics to give a unified method of treating transport processes. This book develops the theoretical basis and relates it to reality by examples. These theories are then applied to solve some important problems within varied fields of science and technology. To facilitate understanding, the basic equations are derived in a simple manner, using a minimum of mathematics.
