About this book

In this volume, recent results obtained for the nonequilibrium thermodynamics of transport and rate processes are reviewed. Kinetic equations, conservation laws, and transport coefficients are obtained for multicomponent mixtures. Thermodynamic principles are used in the design of experiments predicting heat and mass transport coefficients. Highly non-stationary conditions are analyzed in the context of transient heat transfer, non-local diffusion in stress fields, and thermohydrodynamic oscillatory instabilities. Unification of the dynamics of chemical systems with other sorts of processes is given and the thermodynamics of reacting surfaces is developed. Admissible reaction paths are studied and a consistency of chemical kinetics with thermodynamics is demonstrated. Oscillatory reactions are analyzed in a unifying approach showing explosive, conservative, or damped behaviour. A review of transport processes in electrolytes and membranes is given and applications of thermodynamics to thermoelectric systems and ionized gas systems are reviewed. It is aimed at thermodynamicists, chemical, industrial, process and design engineers.
