Thermodynamics of irreversible Processes provides a thorough treatment of the basic axioms of irreversible systems and deals with specific applications to diffusion of liquids and matter in flow. This volume will prove to be invaluable reading for anyone working in the field of irreversible phenomena. Thermodynamics of Irreversible Processes, presents :-<br> * A lucid review of classical thermodynamics<br> * Rigorous derivations of the fundamental principles of irreversible thermodynamics<br> * In-depth studies of multicomponent diffusion, with applications to non-ideal systems<br> * Thorough treatments of relaxation phenomena and linear viscoelasticity<br> * An essential text for anyone working with irreversible thermodynamics, rheology and multi-component mixtures<br> Thermodynamics of irreversible Processes is the first advanced text dealing with the applications of irreversible thermodynamics to multicomponent diffusion and viscoelasticity. Gerard Kuiken has written a book which will appeal to students and researchers in chemistry, chemical technology, polymer and materials science, physics and rheology.
