In this compelling, and important book, John Schmitz brings order to the world of chaos that surrounds us. The Second Law of Life refers to the second law of thermodynamics, entropy, which is an omnipresent force that quietly and crucially determines every aspect of our society, culture and daily lives. Unless we come to understand entropy, future... more...

Examines the geometrical and thermodynamical properties of mechanical behavior of metals and many polymeric and paste-like materials which are indispensable for developing a rational theory of viscoplasticity. This book is suitable for researchers as well as PhD students in the fields of material science and continuum mechanics. more...

This book places thermodynamics on a system-theoretic foundation so as to harmonize it with classical mechanics. Using the highest standards of exposition and rigor, the authors develop a novel formulation of thermodynamics that can be viewed as a moderate-sized system theory as compared to statistical thermodynamics. This middle-ground theory involves... more...

Mass transfer phenomena can now be observed in many fields of industry. In particular, separation processes, which make up the vast majority of industrial production procedures, are governed by the physics of mass transfer, and their design and optimization depends heavily on knowledge in this field. This didactic approach to the principles and modeling... more...

Aufbauend auf den Grundlagen der Thermodynamik und idealisierten Motorprozessen behandelt das Standardwerk aktuelle null-, quasi-, ein- und mehrdimensionale Methoden zur Analyse und Simulation des realen Motorprozesses. Dabei werden Fragen des Wärmeübergangs, der Verbrennung, der Schadstoffbildung und des Ladungswechsels erörtert und Arbeitsprozesse... more...

The comprehension of the laws which govern any material system is greatly facilitated by considering the energy and entropy of the system in various states of which it is capable. As in the case of simply mechanics systems, the performance of mechanical work, the function which expresses the capability of the system for this kind of action also plays... more...

Temperature is vital to the health and welfare of all living beings, and Earth's temperature varies considerably from place to place. Early humans could only live in warm areas such as the tropics. Although modern humans have the technology to keep their houses and offices warm even in cold environments, the growth and development of civilization... more...
