Thermodynamic theory

This volume has two first authors because it is a result of very intensive teamwork between the two authors. We have had three brainstorm meetings, each of approximately one week’s duration. There have been numerous pingpong games (questions–answers–new proposals etc.) on the Internet. All the chapters have major contributions from both of us. We hope that the volume therefore demonstrates a synergistic effect, reflecting the positive teamwork that is behind the volume.

Starting from a derivation of the conservation equations for multicomponent multiphase flows in porous media and a discussion of convective vs. diffusive/dispersive transport, the reader is introduced to a mathematical framework, based on the method of characteristics, for solving convectiondominated transport problems.

Using an applications perspective Thermodynamic Models for Industrial Applications provides a unified framework for the development of various thermodynamic models, ranging from the classical models to some of the most advanced ones. Among these are the Cubic Plus Association Equation of State (CPA EoS) and the Perturbed Chain Statistical Association Fluid Theory (PCSAFT). These two advanced models are already in widespread use in industry and academia, especially within the oil and gas, chemical and polymer industries....

Introduction: Corrosion can be generally deﬁned as degradation of materials in a reaction between the material and its environment. The nature of the reactions leading to degradation depends on the class of materials: for metals, corrosion is an electrochemical process, whereas ceramics can fail by purely chemical dissolution. This article mainly discusses the corrosion processes of metallic materials, that is, electrochemical corrosion reactions.

Ionic Liquids (ILs) are one of the most interesting and rapidly developing areas of modern physical chemistry, technologies and engineering. This book, consisting of 29 chapters gathered in 4 sections, reviews in detail and compiles information about some important physicalchemical properties of ILs and new practical approaches. This is the first book of a series of forthcoming publications on this field by this publisher.

Thermodynamics is one of the most exciting branches of physical chemistry which has greatly contributed to the modern science. Since its inception, great minds have built their theories of thermodynamics. One should name those of Sadi Carnot, Clapeyron Claussius, Maxwell, Boltzman, Bernoulli, Leibniz etc. Josiah Willard Gibbs had perhaps the greatest scientific influence on the development of thermodynamics. His attention was for some time focused on the study of the Watt steam engine.

The book reports on an attempt to understand the unity of physics. This unity began to manifest itself in rather unexpected form in this century. The most important step in that direction was the development of quantum theory; the emphasis of this book is therefore on the endeavor to understand quantum theory. Here, understand refers not merely to practical application of the theory—in that sense it has been understood for a long time. It means being able to say what one does when applying the theory....

This book is about the interplay between plasticity theory and thermodynamics. Both of these theories deal with materials in which dissipation occurs, and yet there are surprisingly few points of contact between the two classical theories. The purpose of this book is to bridge this gap by formulating plasticity theory entirely within the context of thermodynamics.

In this chapter we discuss relations between information theory and statistical mechanics. We show that the canonical and grand canonical distributions can be obtained from Shannon’s principle of maximum uncertainty [1, 2, 3]. Moreover, the time evolution of the entropy of an isolated system and the H theorem are discussed.

The scope of this book is to demonstrate that we do have an ecosystem theory that can be used to describe ecosystem structure and function. It was previously shown in the book, Integration of Ecosystem Theories: A Pattern (3rd edition, 2002), that the various contributions to systems ecology are consistent and together form a pattern of ecological processes. My book with Yuri Svirezhev, Toward a Thermodynamic Theory of Ecosystems (2004), presented the thermodynamics of this pattern in a mathematical language....

Discover the many facets of nonequilibrium thermodynamics. The first part of this book describes the current thermodynamic formalism recognized as the classical theory. The second part focuses on different approaches. Throughout the presentation, the emphasis is on problemsolving applications. To help build your understanding, some problems have been analyzed using several formalisms to underscore their differences and their similarities.

THERMODYNAMIC MODELING, ENERGY EQUIPARTITION, AND NONCONSERVATION OF ENTROPY FOR DISCRETETIME DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS WASSIM M. HADDAD, QING HUI, SERGEY G. NERSESOV, AND VIJAYSEKHAR CHELLABOINA Received 19 November 2004 We develop thermodynamic models for discretetime largescale dynamical systems. Speciﬁcally, using compartmental dynamical system theory, we develop energy ﬂow models possessing energy conservation, energy equipartition, temperature equipartition, and entropy nonconservation principles for discretetime, largescale dynamical systems.

One reason why the study of thermodynamics is so valuable to students of chemistry and chemical engineering is that it is a theory which can be developed in its entirety, without gaps in the argument, on the basis of only a moderate knowledge of mathematics. It is therefore a selfcontained logical structure, and much benefitand incidentally much pleasuremay be obtained from its study. Another reason is that it is one of the few branches of physics or chemistry which is largely independent of any assumptions concerning the nature of the fundamental particles.

This book presents some apparent divergences, that is, its content branches off in many directions. This fact is reflected in the titles of the chapters and the methods applied in discussing the problems of physical adsorption. It is not accidental. I aimed to prove that the problems of physical adsorption, in spite of the ramified research fields, have similar or identical roots. These statements mean that this book is 1) diverse, but still unified and 2) classical, but still modern. The book contains monographs at a scientific level and some chapters include parts that can be used by Ph.

IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT SIR ISAAC NEWTON was the last person to know everything. He was an accomplished physicist (his three laws of motion were the basis of classical mechanics, which defi ned astrophysics for three centuries), mathematician (he was one of the inventors of calculus and developed Newton’s Method for fi nding roots of equations), astronomer, natural philosopher, and alchemist (okay, maybe the last one was a mistake). He invented the refl ecting telescope, a theory of color, and a law of cooling, and he studied the speed of sound.

Modern complex dynamical systems1 are highly interconnected and mutually interdependent, both physically and through a multitude of information and communication network constraints. The sheer size (i.e., dimensionality) and complexity of these largescale dynamical systems often necessitates a hierarchical decentralized architecture for analyzing and controlling these systems. Specifically, in the analysis and controlsystem design of complex largescale dynamical systems it is often desirable to treat the overall system as a collection of interconnected subsystems.

T he impetus to produce this book came in a brief phone call in 1998. Chuck Crumly, of Academic Press, called with an invitation and a deadline. Either The Ecology of Fishes on Coral Reefs, published in 1991, would be allowed to lapse into outofprint status, or I would agree to produce a second edition. Looking back on all the work, I suspect it might have been wiser to say, "Let her lapse." But I didn't.
