Extended irreversible thermodynamics by D Jou ( Book )
52 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first comprehensive monograph on a new thermodynamic theory that goes beyond the classical theory of irreversible processes. In contrast to the classical approach, the local equilibrium hypothesis is abandoned. The basic variables describing the system are no longer the equilibrium conserved variables: the latter are complemented by non-equilibrium quantities, such as the heat flux, the viscous pressure tensor, the matter flux, the electric current flux, etc. The claims made for extended thermodynamics are confirmed by the kinetic theory of gases and statistical mechanics. The book covers a wide spectrum of applications such as hyperbolic heat conduction, rheological models, waves in fluids, generalized hydrodynamics, phase diagrams of solutions under shear, non-Fickian diffusion, electrical systems, and a relativistic formulation including some cosmological applications. The book also contains a wide discussion of the foundations and the scope of the current theories on non-equilibrium thermodynamics (classical irreversible thermodynamics and rational thermodynamics). The present edition reflects new developments in the theory and applications, adds new problems and provides a more detailed comparison with other fields of active research. It contains one hundred thirty proposed problems, whose detailed solutions, as well as wide bibliography on extended irreversible thermodynamics and related topics, may be unloaded from the www.uab.es/dep-fisica/eit website
Thermodynamics of fluids under flow by D Jou ( )
26 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the second edition of the book "Thermodynamics of Fluids under Flow," which was published in 2000 and has now been corrected, expanded and updated. This is a companion book to our other title Extended irreversible thermodynamics (D. Jou, J. Casas-Vazquez and G. Lebon, Springer, 4th edition 2010), and of the textbook Understanding non-equilibrium thermodynamics (G. Lebon, D. Jou and J. Casas-Vazquez, Springer, 2008. The present book is more specialized than its counterpart, as it focuses its attention on the non-equilibrium thermodynamics of flowing fluids, incorporating non-t
Understanding non-equilibrium thermodynamics foundations, applications, frontiers by G Lebon ( )
19 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book offers a homogeneous presentation of the many faces of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The first part is devoted to a description of the nowadays thermodynamic formalism recognized as the classical theory of non-equilibrium processes. This part of the book may serve as a basis to an introductory course dedicated to first-year graduate students in sciences and engineering. The classical description can however not be complete, as it rests on the hypothesis of local equilibrium. This has fostered the development of many theories going beyond local equilibrium and which cannot be put as
Recent developments in nonequilibrium thermodynamics : proceedings of the meeting held at Bellaterra School of Thermodynamics, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Bellaterra, Barcelona, Spain, September 26-30, 1983 by J Casas-Vázquez ( Book )
20 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and German and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduction to the thermodynamics of biological processes by D Jou ( Book )
5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rheological modelling : thermodynamical and statistical approaches : proceedings of the meeting held at Bellaterra School of Thermodynamics, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Catalonia, Spain, 24-28 September 1990 ( Book )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The pedagogically presented lectures deal with viscoelastic behaviour of fluids, the compatibility of rheological theories with nonequilibrium thermodynamics, fluids under shear, and polymer behaviour in solution and in biological systems. The main aims of the book are to stress the importance of the study of rheological systems for statistical physics and nonequilibrium thermodynamics and to present recent results in rheological modelling. The book will be a valuable source for both students and researchers
